Pros of the CrossFit Workout

Pros of the CrossFit Workout

While there are many workout regimens from which to choose, not all are perfect fits for each individual. Examining the pros and cons of differing routines can help you gauge whether or not you will have successful outcomes. The CrossFit workout program has worked for tens of thousands of people. The following is a listing of some of the program's positive and successful aspects:

  • Passion - People love Crossfit really love CrossFit. It becomes a way of life and living which means that they are far more likely to stick with the program and the training over time turning it into a way of life. Making it a way of life translates into better results which just fuels their passion for the program.

  • Community - Participants become a close knit team as they are there, in the gym, every day working together and pushing one another. This closeness helps reinforce the desire to stick with the program and keep coming back. This sense of community is not just at the gym either. The online Crossfit community is a very large part of this program. There are multiple ways to have questions answered within the Crossfit website. It can be this sense of community that creates an almost emotional connection and need to keep with the program.
  • Variety – It is the spice of life and of workouts. Getting bored with a workout regimen can be the beginning of the end for good workout habits. With CrossFit there are so many different exercises and moves, it is easy to mix it up so you won’t get tired and burned out of the workouts, thus helping you stick with it.
  • Total Body Fitness - The main focus of the Crossfit program is fitness. This is achieved by the variety of exercises provided by the WOD. Instead of focusing on fat loss, muscle gain or athletic performance, Crossfit prefers not to focus on any of these. Instead it gives a broad view that encompasses them all. This provides better total body fitness for the participants.
  • Gyms - For those who choose to attend a Crossfit affiliate gym, the trainer led program is much more cost effective than having to pay for a personal trainer. While you won’t necessarily get the one on one attention that a personal trainer might give, the benefit of being watched over by a certified individual who is there to help you for a significantly lower cost can be a big plus.
