CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
The community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together is a key component of why CrossFit is so effective, and it gave birth to a global network of CrossFit affiliates that number over 13,000. Harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes.
The Games are a playing field where the fittest athletes are given a chance to distinguish themselves through consistently exceptional performances. In a single weekend, the CrossFit Games test athletes’ capabilities across broad time and modal domains. A wide variety of different events are intentionally included. In order to be satisfied that the CrossFit Games winners are truly the Fittest on Earth, we need to be confident the champions would also win other good tests of fitness.

CROSSFIT: Tough on the Body. Tough on the Floor.
We at Regupol America know that Regupol sports and fitness flooring is made to withstand the heaviest of workouts, because it’s been tried and tested by one of the world’s most intensive training methods – CrossFit. As the principal strength and conditioning program employed by police academies, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and professional athletes worldwide, it’s become a global phenomena in the health and fitness arena. CrossFit workouts push athletes’ physical limits and mental dedication.
While bodies strain to meet their personal goals, the facility floor underneath takes a regular beating. CrossFit programs utilize barbells, tires, boxes, and kettlebells, which when dropped can strain even the toughest floors. CrossFit floors need ultimate durability, making Regupol America the flooring choice of CrossFit devotees nationwide.
REGUPOL and CROSSFIT: A Tough Combination

Through their sponsorship, Regupol America ensured that while these hard-burning athletes pushed their bodies to the ultimate limits, the floor underfoot was equal to the task.
