Thousands of trainees have walked through the doors of CrossFit Tel Aviv. Very rarely have any of them walked in already “strong enough”. For this very reason our Elements course and the first few months of our suggested work outs for our Beginner athletes are focused on developing strength. Strength also happens to be one of the physical attributes that as you improve it, we will also notice other positive adaptations to the other components of “fitness”.
