CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program designed to improve overall complete fitness and specific physical fitness.

CrossFit training incorporates a wide range of exercises to increase overall fitness, physique and general well-being. It is also a great way to get fit by adding variety to your workouts. CrossFit was originally used to train police and military forces, but it has become popular among the fitness world.

CrossFit workouts include exercises in the categories:

  • Lifting Weights
  • Gymnastics
  • Cardio (distance running or sprinting)

The benefits of CrossFit training are weight loss plus improved heart health, joint mobility, overall health, training intensity and efficiency.

Health Benefits of CrossFit Training

Although most people start off doing steady state cardio exercises to lose weight, research has shown that high-intensity training exercises can burn fat faster. CrossFit training adds muscle and reduces weight (body fat), according to a 2013 study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning.

CrossFit Training and Improved Heart Health

CrossFit exercises keep your heart rate elevated throughout the entire workout. This will increase your endurance, especially since CrossFit workouts have been shown to elevate your heart rate to 90% of maximal rate (according to a study from the American Council on Exercise).

CrossFit Training and Improved Joint Mobility

Due to the functional movements and variety of exercises in CrossFit, you will experience improved joint mobility. By learning proper weight lifting techniques, you will also lower the risk of injury in your everyday activities.

CrossFit Training and Improved Overall Health

CrossFit incorporates 10 major fitness categories: strength, stamina, flexibility, coordination, speed, power, balance, agility, endurance and accuracy. Performing the many combinations of exercise movements included in these categories can transform your overall health.

CrossFit Training and Intensity

Since CrossFit involves short, intense workouts that are fast-paced, they push your body close to its maximal effort. This approach has obvious health benefits attached to it but it also allows you to develop the determination and motivation to complete challenging tasks.

CrossFit Training and Time Efficiency

CrossFit workouts may last from 15 to 20 minutes at near maximal effort. This means you will finish your workout faster and burn more calories than you would by doing a standard workout in the same time.

If you’re been bored with the same old workout routine, try the versatility of CrossFit workouts for a new, invincible you!
