Benefits of CrossFit
Benefits you can measure:
You’ll build muscle and improve stamina.
You’ll see it in the numbers. Health indicators like body mass index, blood pressure, and resting pulse all improve.
You’ll have better range of motion.
And all this will translate into improvements in other sports, including climbing, soccer, skiing, and cycling.
Benefits you can feel:
Our clients say they look better, move better and feel better.
They have more energy and sleep better.
They see a difference in their daily activities. Things that once seemed hard like gardening, carrying groceries, and climbing stairs get easier.
And they look forward to going to the gym. Seriously.
Can I modify the workout?
Yes! Everything in CrossFit can be modified for any age group or fitness level. CrossFit can be also modified for children, pregnancy, persons with disabilities, and persons with previous injuries.
For example: Boxes to support squatting, or holding onto something for stability in the squat; really anything that keeps a movement within a safe range of motion for the individual. Modifications help people feel comfortable and capable of doing partials, such as a partial squat. With any kind of weighted exercise, a lighter load is a good modification. If it’s a bodyweight drill, you can use any modification to support part of their weight—like doing push-ups with their hands on a bench or their knees on the floor. Or using the rubberbands for assisted pull-ups.
Basically there are two kinds of modifications: ones that keep the range of motion within the person’s safe range, and ones that lighten the load to allow a full range of motion.
