Let’s face it, in the majority of public opinion, CrossFit gets a bad rap.
I often hear these comments in conversations about whether to give CrossFit a try. Often these are statements heard not only from potential customers but also from acquaintances, friends and family.
“CrossFit is just too hard.” “I’m too old for CrossFit.”
“I don’t want to hurt myself.” “Everyone who does CrossFit gets injured.”
“I’m not good enough for CrossFit.” “I’m not fit enough for CrossFit.”
Contrary to popular opinion, CrossFit is not about going all out, every day, all the time. It’s not about maxing out your heart rate or lifting as heavy as you can every day. CrossFit in the community is NOT what you see at The CrossFit Games or hard core CrossFit competitions.
I’ve been in the fitness industry for almost 15 years, 4 of them have been as a CrossFit Affiliate.
I can attest from experience as a business owner and CrossFit trainer that CrossFit is indeed for anyone.
Whether you’re 3 or 83, brand new to exercising, getting back into fitness after a long hiatus or a seasoned fitness enthusiast, CrossFit is a sound and effective fitness program that promotes general wellness exponentially more than what you see in mainstream media.
