Perks of CrossFit and Why You Should Start Today

Fitness is the new hobby of choice for many Americans today. The excesses of the previous generations have resulted in a lot of overweight, chronically-fatigued people who can’t negotiate a flight of stairs without becoming breathless. Unfortunately, many of these new believers like to talk the talk with none of the requisite walking. Thus the fitness wannabes end up forgetting their lifetime gym memberships and waiting for their pizza to arrive.

 

No Time

The most popular reason people give for failing to exercise regularly is a lack of time. A typical workout requires at least an hour three times a week, and that doesn’t include the commute. With work, family, and other commitments, many claim there simply aren’t enough hours in the day.

CrossFit answers that challenge with a smirk.

 

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a high-intensity training system that was first introduced in the year 2000 by Greg Glassman and his wife Lauren Jenai. It aims to improve speed, stamina, endurance, and strength with intense interval training, jump training, Olympic weightlifting, calisthenics, and a host of other high-powered exercises.

Portability

One of the biggest perks of CrossFit training is that it’s portable. It can be done under the supervision of a coach in a “box” (that’s “gym” in CrossFit-speak), and for those starting out this is recommended. These exercises aren’t your average lackadaisical routines. They require guidance to perform safely.

After several sessions, however, you can actually do your training at home or anywhere with an Internet connection, using the workouts posted daily online in the affiliated gyms or the CrossFit website. This makes it convenient for busy executives and stay-at-home moms alike.

Brevity

Another important perk is the shortness of the routine. A complete CrossFit workout can be accomplished in as little as 5 to 15 minutes, depending on how fast you can finish the prescribed Workout Of the Day (WOD) and the length of your rest periods. Training up to 5 times a week isn’t a scheduling problem when it can be done at home.

 

Popularity

Currently, there are 9,000 affiliated gyms adapting some type of CrossFit training, often customized for specific populations i.e. CrossFit Kids. It’s a widely used system in the military, the education system, and professional sports teams. So, what are you waiting for? Get crossfitting!
