"Our use of the term "gymnastics" not only includes the traditional competitive sport that we’ve seen on TV but all activities like climbing, yoga, calisthenics, and dance where the aim is body control. It is within this realm of activities that we can develop extraordinary strength (especially upper body and trunk), flexibility, coordination, balance, agility, and accuracy. In fact, the traditional gymnast has no peer in terms of development of these skills." -Greg Glassman

Competence in these movements will demonstrate your ability to manipulate and control your body. Their beauty lies in their simplicity and functionality, which makes them staples of the CrossFit program.
