"Constantly Varied, Functional Movement performed at High Intensity," (CVFMHI), is the quick description of the CrossFit methodology.  At CrossFit UP, we continue to prioritize mechanics and consistency over intensity, but when you're ready we're happy to give you the green light and push you to find something deep inside that you have been waiting to uncover.  Certainly not at the sacrifice of your form or health, but knowing when to push and when to back off is the mark of a seasoned and savvy CrossFitter.  Sometimes we refer to this as "the dark place," or something else that sounds uncomfortable and uninviting.  We go there when we push it, for ourselves, for others, or to prove to ourselves we can emerge victorious over "the suck."  And sometimes when we go there, it is because a benchmark has been thrown and we respond as such.  After all, we'll likely meet this benchmark again.  And so we enter the week.
