About MHCF

Mile High CrossFit (MHCF) is a strength and conditioning facility that specializes in coaching individuals and teams by utilizing the fundamentals of CrossFit (See What Is CrossFit Below).  Our members are diverse in their athletic background ranging from students, lawyers, stay at home moms, nurses, and college athletes.

We are located in Centennial, CO and officially opened our doors in October 2010.  From day one, the coaches of MHCF stress the importance of technique, intensity, nutrition and above all community.  Members feel like part of a community as we all get stronger and healthier together.  We also have fun together, participating in events, happy hours, competitions, fundraisers, etc.  The atmosphere is one of friendship and competition. We have fun by working hard.  The results are evident by our affiliate team’s qualification into the 2011 & 2014 CrossFit Southwest Regionals.

At Mile High CrossFit, we apply the same principles stressed by the CrossFit.com main site focusing on functional exercises that mimic every day movements so you can be stronger in life, not just in the gym. Workouts are performed within a group class environment run by a Coach who provides instruction, technique review, and ensures safety in the movements being performed. The workouts are designed to challenge you both mentally and physically and you will likely make a few friends along the way as the group classes provide not only competition but camaraderie between members.

 

What is CrossFit

CrossFit...Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, Performed at a High Intensity.

CrossFit delivers a fitness program that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.  We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

CrossFit utilizes a combination of Power and Olympic Weightlifting, Gymnastics Movements and Skills and High Intensity Cardio to create a comprehensive strength and conditioning program.


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.
