The way that CrossFit has set up means they can be ever evolving. There are different overall variations of CrossFit, for example, CrossFit Football. But there are also smaller variations which cater to the needs of specific groups, such as pregnant women, the elderly and even adaptations for military use.

By using home gym equipment people can even set up little CrossFit circuits and follow the daily workouts on the site.

Overall, CrossFit has imbedded itself into the circuit training scene. By showing openness and willing to accept ideas from others the company have continued to expand at a great pace. With the CrossFit games becoming ever more popular and the prizes becoming more and more lucrative, it looks as though it is here to stay.
