Five reasons crossfit is the best way to lose holiday weight

Hello, everyone!

So, the holidays are fast arriving and you know what that means? Yeah, you guessed it right! Fun filled activities with family, friends and colleagues. Indulging in everything that seems to have been kept away the whole year long. Lots of food and drinks literally beneath your nose thus gaining a few pounds is highly inevitable. Guess what, Crossfit is here to help you lose all that weight so let loose and have as much fun as wish.

The Crossfit philosophy employs intense commitment to a rigid work out lifestyle whose results are nothing short of impeccable. Here’s what makes Crossfit the best way to lose holiday weight:

Fully equipped gyms

The majority of Crossfit have all the equipment, accessories and space you need to perform appropriate strength training workouts. From squat racks, dumbbells, gymnastics bars, medicine balls and kettlebells to Olympic weightlifting platforms, rowing machines and ropes, every hardware you require to shed off those extra pounds is at your disposal in the gyms.

You have an experienced and supportive mentor

Mostly, people go to the gym like someplace they are supposed to show up religiously twice or thrice in a week. There is no strict work out plan and so, one goes with the easiest and least painful exercises. This, however, does not produce the best results seeing that training requires logical structure and orderly progression.

In Crossfit, things are totally different since once you get to the class, the instructor sees to it that you do exactly what you are supposed to do at the right time and also decide when is good enough for you to discontinue a certain type of work out. 


Quick and efficient workouts

At the start of your work out sessions, the instructors are patient enough to see that they don’t discourage you but with time, the workouts become intense and quick which makes them more efficient. Crossfit instructors can customize weight loss workouts to fit your abilities and specific needs.

For example, doing push-ups or pressing the dumbbell can be used to enhance the upper body strength instead of the barbell. Afraid of running? Don’t flinch because you can do the walk/ run combo or different kind of cardio like rowing. For super busy persons looking to shed off some weight, short workouts are available to keep your exercise on track.

Crossfit community provides social support

At Crossfit, it’s not only about getting you through those torturous works out sessions but also it provide a platform for you to share your experiences and progress with fellow Crossfitters. From the platform, you’ll also be able to see various Crossfit Survival tips. This helps you to stay in check and may also help improve accountability and consistency.

Crossfit pushes you to work harder than you can on your own

Most people hate being uncomfortable and would do anything to get off the discomfort as fast as they can, this mentality does not really settle at Crossfit. Although these workouts can get to dangerous extremes, the “no pain no gain” attitude of Crossfit is one of the reasons it’s highly effective. When you do a Crossfit workout, expect to sweat it out to fitness and a nice looking body.

Consistent Crossfit with proper modifications coupled with the proper diet, will definitely lead to positive changes to your body.

    We love CrossFit. It’s hard, it’s intense and yes we’re sore after but it’s really pushed us to do things we never even imagined we can do. We recommend it to our friends all the time.

    For sure, folks who love CrossFit REALLY love it! I haven’t tried it because I worry about blowing my back out, but kind of wish they had like a “mini” CrossFit for total noobs 🙂

    I did crossfit right when it became a popular thing and I really enjoyed it. Great way to work out!

    I’ve actually been thinking about trying to find a crossfit gym near me. As you mentioned, it looks like an amazing workout and one that I would enjoy. I’ll have to see what I can find close and what the prices are.

    You’ve motivated me to try Crossfit training. I hear it’s a grueling workout – which scares me, lol!

    I have heard so many things about cross fit, like how it’s super intense, but equally fun. We just baught some home gym equipment for Christmas, so here’s so working towards a healthier life.

    I thought about doing this this year. I’ve been doing the workout from home but it’s so easy to give myself an excuse. I might need to just bite the bullet and jump in.

    I’ve never tried CrossFit, but I’ve heard so many good things about it. One day I should try it out.

    I don’t subscribe to no pain, no gain workout programs but, I respect the right of people to choose whatever works for them. I’ve always been athletic and have done kickboxing and martial arts too. I just believe workouts can be beneficial without extreme pain or room for injuries.

    I’ve never tried CrossFit before but it looks and sounds pretty awesome. May need to look into it!

    I have never tried crossfit but I love the idea of the mentor overseeing what I am doing. It’s a huge part of my yoga practice has been having a teacher with me helping me out.

    I’ve never tried CrossFit, but my friends who do it are constantly raving. Maybe 2019 is the year I give it a go!

    Crossfit sounds like such an amazing way to get some exercise. I love that there is such a good support system!

    I haven’t tried CrossFit, but it certainly looks effective. I have gone to various gyms in the past, including a private one and Planet Fitness, and do miss the exercise routine and camaraderie of working out with others.

    I haven’t tried Crossfit yet, but these are definitely important benefits of ANY program/gym that someone would join. I attend a women’s-only full-service gym that has the mentoring and support you describe, and love it. (There is no crossfit in my area!)
