Over the past 10 years or so, we’ve seen CrossFit rise in popularity. The California-based workout puts a heavy emphasis on quick interval training combined with Olympic weightlifting. Despite it being high-intensity, many are drawn to CrossFit for its quick workout time and use of team bonding. Most CrossFit workouts are under 15 minutes in time. Here are five reasons to try CrossFit this spring.
Although summer is just a few weeks away, CrossFit can help still get you cut in time for summer. The intensity of a CrossFit workout can help get your body in summer shape quicker than most workout plans.
The fast-paced nature of CrossFit can be much more appealing to those who aren’t that active at the gym. The quick 15-minute workouts help workout every muscle in your body in a short period of time. Exercises like burpees, squats and deadlifts are common exercises in a CrossFit workout.
One of the main reasons CrossFit has gotten so popular is due to how quickly their workouts can be. Compared to the traditional gym experience that can take easily end up being over 60 minutes long, CrossFit can be over in just 25 minutes. The short time commitment has made it extremely popular for those who have a busy schedule.
Thanks to the intensity of the workout, you’re forced to push your body to the limit during each exercise in the workout. If you were to a follow a regular gym workout, it is easy to cheat yourself on reps and take longer breaks.
To ensure safety and proper technique, all CrossFit workouts are supervised by a coach or trainer. The added coaching can help you get in shape a lot quicker and easier than just wandering around the gym trying out new machines.
