CrossFit is often perceived as a high-intensity, demanding fitness regime, suitable only for those who are already fit. However, the reality is far from this..

CrossFit isn’t just about lifting heavy weights or doing burpees, it’s designed to enhance your overall lifestyle. Making everyday more enjoyable, active, and fulfilling, regardless of your current fitness level. Whether you’re skiing down a mountain, swimming, mountaineering, or simply trying to keep up with your kids, CrossFit can provide the support and strength you need.

Building Strength for Everyday Activities

One of the core principles of CrossFit is functional fitness—training that applies into real-world strength and abilities. The varied workouts help improve your strength, endurance, and flexibility, making everyday activities easier and more enjoyable. 

Imagine being able to lift heavy shopping bags without straining, climb stairs without getting out of breath, or playing with your kids without needing to take breaks. CrossFit prepares your body to handle these daily tasks easily..

Preventing Injuries

Regular CrossFit training is an excellent way to not only build strength but also enhance your body’s resilience, reducing the risk of injuries. The focus on proper form and technique ensures that you’re moving correctly. This helps prevent common injuries associated with poor posture and movement. 

There are key areas which are crucial to minimising your risk of injury and this includes strengthening your core, improving your balance, and increasing your flexibility and CrossFit encompasses all of this!

Helping You Enjoy Hobbies and Sports More

For those of you who love any sports or active outdoor activities, CrossFit is the best way to complement your hobbies. Skiers and mountaineers benefit from increased leg strength and endurance, swimmers gain upper body strength and improved cardiovascular fitness, and runners experience better overall stamina and injury prevention. 

CrossFit’s approach ensures that all muscle groups are engaged and strengthened, leading to enhanced performance. If there is a particular activity you participate in outside the gym, have a chat with your coach and they can always give advice on what movements to incorporate to supplement this even more.

Quality Time with Family

One of the greatest benefits of CrossFit is the positive impact it has on your family life. By improving your fitness and energy levels, you’ll be able to spend more quality time with your family, whether it’s kids, nieces and nephews, grandkids or even just friends. Having a higher level baseline for fitness and energy naturally makes quality time more enjoyable for you all. 

Positive Impact on Children

By taking part in Crossfit and regular exercise, sets a positive example for a healthy lifestyle which is so important for kids. Embracing health and fitness from a young age means the whole family can enjoy activities together, and possibly even workouts! 

At CrossFit Choice we have a CrossFit Kids class which is incredibly popular, we love it as it gets kids enjoying fitness from an early age! When kids participate in sports other than CrossFit it is clear to see their fitness levels far supersede their peers and allow them to perform better too!
