The commercial company Crossfit Inc has created the fastest-growing functional fitness sport, CrossFit. Traditionally, the sport is practised from boxes—garages and company buildings where exercises are performed with simple barbells, weight plates, dumbbells and kettlebells. The workout of the day (WOD) is the general exercise that all athletes perform.
