At CrossFit Santa Cruz, we stress the importance of proper mechanics. We believe that not only will better mechanics lead to better performance, but better mechanics are the safest, most efficient and efficacious way to stay fit over your life time. Doing CrossFit with bad mechanics is akin to having unsafe sex. You may get away with it, you may not. We believe in being safe and effective, even if the road to elite fitness, is a slow one.
