Benefits of Crossfit

Some people think the best way to get in shape is to go for a run, but that doesn't help build bone mass among young people or preserve it in older adults. Lifting weights strengthens muscles and makes bones stronger. For those of you who crave aerobic work, CrossFit not only incorporates lifting weights in a workout, it also includes aerobic work (rowing, biking & running) to raise the heart rate and burn more calories and fat. If you have a gym membership and run on the treadmill and perform your usual leisurely circuit around the same machines time and time again that is NOT going to compete with the intensity of a CrossFit workout.

Why CrossFit is better than your average gym workout?

  • It provides aerobic cardiovascular benefits for all ages and fitness abilities.
  • It increases muscle strength and improves muscle tone.
  • It includes a variety of exercises to achieve well-rounded fitness, and eliminate boredom.
  • It incorporates competition, both with yourself and your community to push yourself to more than you thought you could achieve.
  • It's definitely more fun than running on a treadmill!
