CREST CrossFit is a non-commercial, non-public, K-12 CrossFit Club affiliate. CREST, Citrus Resources for Exceptional Student Transition, is a special day school for students with disabilities.
The idea of introducing CrossFit to the students at CREST was that of Rebecca Tatun, a Citrus High School (Academy of Computer Science) student and CrossFit athlete. Developing, planning and implementing CREST Crossfit started out as her Innovation Project for school, but turned into a passion that she really believes in.
Rebecca wishes to introduce CrossFit to as many students as possible so they all may experience all that CrossFit has given her.
She wants everyone to know that CrossFit is for EVERYONE. CrossFit.com sums it up best: "The needs of our olympic athletes and grandparents differ by degree, not kind. That is to say, everyone needs to perform an intelligently selected variety of functional movements at a level of intensity appropriate for that individual. Everyone needs to eat food that sustains, rather than harms, the body." (CrossFit At Home. https://www.crossfit.com/at-home. Accessed 11/4/2019.)
The mission of CREST CrossFit aligns with that of the CREST School's because we intrinsically believe "that all students can achieve" and that increased fitness will only help them achieve.

What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness program designed for all individuals with universal scalability.

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
A Theoretical Hierarchy of Development
The theoretical hierarchy of development starts with nutrition and moves to metabolic conditioning, gymnastics, weightlifting and finally sport. The logical flow is from molecular foundations to cardiovascular sufficiency, body control, external object control, and ultimately mastery and application. If you have a deficiency at any level of “the pyramid,” the components above will suffer.
