These days, CrossFit is pretty much a household name. But what exactly is it, and are you ready for it? Essentially, CrossFit is a high-intensity fitness workout that’s packed with variety and incorporates elements from a range of sports and exercise. Think of it as a cross between gymnastics, running, rowing and weight-lifting – that’s why it’s called CrossFit. The exercises are performed in a highly competitive, team-oriented environment.
CrossFit is all about the intensity – short, sharp bursts of energy that challenge your mind and body. Every action is done with focus and purpose. It may seem a little daunting for beginners initially, but once you get started it’s highly addictive. Before committing, it’s important to get your body CrossFit-ready first – there’s a range of cross trainers for sale that are sure to get your fitness levels up.
When you begin your fitness program, it’s a good idea to choose realistic training times that fit into your life so you can stick to them. Discipline is a big part of CrossFit and, without it, you won’t be able to enjoy all the benefits that it has to offer. Think of some achievable goals to aim for, and don’t let anything (or anybody) get in your way of reaching them. Start with some fundamental CrossFit exercises, such as cycling or push-ups, and work your way up from there.
