What is CrossFit Kyoto?
CrossFit Kyoto is about Transformation.
We human beings are built to move, not just sit at a desk, or even perform one repetitive action and call it exercise.
Let us help you transform from a sedentary beast into your true jaguar-like self. Learn to move efficiently, effectively and powerfully.
We won’t overload you with complicated drills, life is already complex enough and we want you to become better at life, not make it harder.
We will give you the fundamentals of good movement from which true power arises. That power is the basis for transformation in all areas of life.
We are not a bootcamp. We won’t give you some tough guy, pseudo-military experience. We will help you rediscover the athlete within, not the army grunt.
We will give you hard work and challenge, camaraderie and fun!
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

“Our speciality is not specializing.”

“CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.”
