If you’re looking to get fit this year but the thought of going to a regular gym doesn’t appeal then there is a different way of working out that doesn’t involve the use of a treadmill.

CrossFit is a different way of working out that builds a person’s strength and conditions by use of highly varied and challenging workouts. The principles used in CrossFit means that the same workouts are suitable for elderly people with heart conditions right up to professional sports people at the height of their game.

Each session has only one workout but it can be scaled to suit the person. For example, if the workout calls for you do squats with 135 pounds but you can’t even lift that, let along squat with it, then the weight will be scaled right down so you only do what you are capable of, even if that means you are only doing squats with the bar. Similarly, if you’re injured and are unable to do a particular move,it will be substituted for something else that you are able to do.

The idea is that by regularly attending classes you will be building up your strength and endurance so that, eventually, you will be able to do the prescribed programme.

For some, the major benefit to CrossFit is that this is group exercise where there are people to cheer you on, while for others, the fact that you can compete to beat your previous score or to work to beat someone elses can really be the kick they need. If these aren’t important to you, maybe the fact that these sessions are run by highly skilled personal trainers who are on hand to ensure that you are doing all the exercises correctly, will draw you to your first CrossFit session. All the sessions are run by fully qualified personal trainers who will not only teach you the correct way tp perform each individual exercise but will correct you if they see you doing something wrong. With this in mind you can be sure that you will be as safe as possible, reducing the risk of injury.

Whilst there are pros and cons for this type of exercise, and it is most definitely not for everyone, many CrossFit centres offer a free introductorary session so you can set out your goals and see if CrossFit could be for you.
