The CrossFit Craze and Why It’s Sticking
CrossFit training is a conditioning program that encapsulates functional movements varying in intensity. It is designed to boost strength and power using weights, core strengthening and cardiovascular exercise.
There is a plethora of CrossFit benefits, some of which include;
CrossFit Benefit #1: High intensity
CrossFit is known to be a workout that pushes you to your limits to quickly produce visible results.
CrossFit Benefit #2: Short duration
As time-poor city slickers, we often use our busyness as an excuse as to why we haven’t exercised in a day. Good news for you… CrossFit workouts are shorter in duration whilst being more effective!
CrossFit Benefit #3: Varying workouts
Workouts can often become boring if we do the same things over and over. CrossFit solves a problem, yet again, as it provides variety by delivering a range of routines depending on the class.
CrossFit Benefit #4: Meeting like-minded people
CrossFit has an element of friendly competition, meaning you meet a lot of different people who tend to have similar interests. The perfect way to add that social aspect to your sweat sesh.
Upping the intensity
To put it simply, CrossFit is the polar opposite of unexciting endurance exercise. It’s short, intense and will keep you on your toes, literally. After CrossFit workouts, people often feel great about two things; one that it was possibly the best sweat they have ever broken, and two, that they had just as much fun! Don’t trust anyone who claims CrossFit isn’t fun.
Fit, Fun and Fast
CrossFit is based on the notion of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which is a method proven to be more effective than low or moderate-intensity workouts as higher efforts combined with active rest boosts metabolism significantly more.
Flab to Fab
Everything is individualised for you… yes you, and you only. That means you can decide how hard you want to go and what you want to focus on. So, if you’re looking to become lean and strong, CrossFit is for you.
Feel Supported, Physically and Mentally
CrossFit Play goes above and beyond to make members feel welcome and ultimately supported. Everyone is naturally supportive of one another and there is zero judgement of what other peoples’ capabilities. Community is visible at Play which is another one of the great things about CrossFit.
CrossFit Through X-Ray Vision
Not only will you lose excess fat and gain muscle doing CrossFit, there are also effects that are not visible to the eye. CrossFit strengthens our hearts an
d cardiovascular system, as well as improves flexibility and joint mobility.
