CrossFit Training Fits Your Needs! Here's What You Need to Know
More and more passionate athletes abandon traditional gyms and choose high-intensity functional training. What about you?
Are your friends crazy about CrossFit Training? Are you jealous of their bodies when scrolling through their selfies on Instagram? Instead of staying at home, try to learn something about their passion.
How did she do it? Is it normal to have these ripped abs in two months? I do not understand it… And what is this WOD, who cares?
Those are only a few of the questions people make, whenever they see someone having such progress. The sad part is that it is easier to belittle what you see than to start doing it. The good thing is that you are here, so you are here searching for how you could make it.
So, let’s start.
WHY DID CROSSFIT BECAME SO POPULAR?
CrossFit became super popular all around the world a few years ago. An interesting statistic shows there are 13,000 affiliated CrossFit gyms in 120 countries.
So, you can imagine how many people left the traditional gyms and moved to CrossFit Boxes!
A few would say that it is a trend, a bubble, and soon it will blow off! But, with so many people transforming their bodies in a few weeks it is certain that the future of training belongs to CrossFit.
The quick results, the passion, and the transformation of training in a gym to a sport are the main reasons behind the success story of CrossFit.
The most essential characteristic of CrossFit is the spirit of sports and competition.
In CrossFit gyms, we keep a scoreboard and post winners to social media, as motivation rather than a reward system. So if you’re motivated by competition to push yourself physically, CrossFit is the best option.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
In plain words, CrossFit is a high-intensity interval training. According to CrossFit official website, it is a lot more than training! It is a lifestyle based on safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition.
No matter what your goal is, CrossFit could improve your health, reduce your weight or increase your sports performance.
As mentioned before CrossFit training is organized in WODs that are different every day and modified based on the level, age, and goals.
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning workout that includes functional movement performed at a high-intensity level.
These movements are actions that you perform in your day-to-day life, like squatting, pulling, pushing, etc. Many workouts feature variations of squats, push-ups, and weight lifting that last for predetermined amounts of time to help build muscles.
CrossFit workouts are so effective because of their emphasis on the elements of load, distance, and speed, which help participants develop high levels of power.
ARE THERE ANY CROSSFIT BENEFITS?
1. You don't need lots of time to train
2. You will get stong faster that you expected
3. You will get fit even if you don't intent to
In CrossFit, most workouts follow the high intensity interval training concept, where you work out hard for short periods with small breaks for rest.
These high-intensity workouts will introduce you to a cardio training that is tougher, and more fun, than running on a court.
CrossFit prides itself on combining the cardio benefits of high-intensity interval training with strength training for maximum benefits.
4. Would you like to be more flexible?
You will work out hard for about half an hour, but your class will start and finish with a warm-up and a cool down that protects your muscles and joints and helps prevent injury.
To prevent injuries and improve performance, you need to build a combination of flexibility (muscle movement) and mobility (joint range and stability).
5. CrossFit is FUN!
We have talked about this earlier… you will not get bored! CrossFit WODs are different every day. This is not the training you do pretty much the same over and over.
Workouts are designed to build into a complex progression of strength, cardio, and flexibility training, but most of all they focus on ‘functional fitness’.
6. You can take part in CrossFit Games
Like it or not, some competition can help you stay motivated and enthusiastic about your workouts. Keep in mind though that you can be as competitive as you like.
Your performance on the day’s WOD will be written on a whiteboard and that could be enough competition for you. At the same time, you can take part in ‘Crossfit Games’ at a low or higher level.
