A CrossFit workout is nothing like your stereotypical gym routine: no one spends an hour working the chest on Monday bench day, and you can’t learn about CrossFit from a DVD or an eBook. Instead, there are currently over 4000 affiliated CrossFit gyms worldwide, and over 2000 commercial gyms who employ CrossFit-style workouts within their training systems.
More and more people who are looking to get in the best shape of their lives are looking to the help of CrossFit gyms to turn their fitness dreams into reality. The reason? The incredible host of benefits that CrossFit delivers are measurable, attainable, and most importantly: they work.
Those who choose CrossFit for their method of training are consistently improving what crossfitters refer to as the 10 most important fitness domains:
- Respiratory/cardio endurance
Besides improving these domains, CrossFit exercises are effective for burning a high number of calories in a short period of time. The result is not only a fitter-looking body, but the improvement of aerobic fitness is incomparable. The promotion of anabolic hormones–those responsible for muscle growth–can actually produce an anti-aging effect when sticking to a CrossFit routine. It’s a well-rounded and very efficient way to achieve a higher level of fitness, and it’s a great way for experienced athletes to add intensity and diversity to his or her program. CrossFit is a program that does not need a whole lot of fancy equipment, but does offer a nice variety to keep the interest level up and provide the challenge needed to keep the exercise fun. What better way to achieve excellence in fitness?
