Read on to learn more about CrossFit training, with answers to all the questions you could possibly have.

1. What exactly is CrossFit?

CrossFit uses a series of multi-functional movements that are designed to work your body in different ways. Unlike other training techniques that tend to focus one a particular aspect of fitness or on a  particular body part, CrossFit will look to develop your full body in all areas of fitness at the same time. This is achieved by incorporating different types of challenges into one workout.

2. Should I do CrossFit?

From the definition, you might already be thinking to yourself that this method of training sounds a bot too intense for the average amateur and perhaps something a little more low-key would be more appropriate. However, the experts say that a CrossFit program would be suitable for any one from the fittest athlete to the young and elderly.

3. Great, now I know anyone can do CrossFit safely but that doesn’t really answer my question: should I do CrossFit?

If this popped into your mind after reading the previous question, then you are absolutely right to think this way. CrossFit, as great as it is, is not a one-size fits all solution to fitness and health challenges, and a CrossFit training programs will be more appropriate for people looking to develop/maintain general fitness such as people who are already fit and are looking to maintain their fitness, or for people who are new to fitness in general.

If you’re training for a specific sport such as soccer or tennis, or looking to develop a particular area of your body such as your abs or your back, then a CrossFit program might be less effective than other fitness techniques.

4. Is CrossFit dangerous?

Working out at such a high intensity probably sounds a bit dangerous to you and yes there are some hazards associated with CrossFit particularly when the proper precautions are not taken. One prime offender is a condition called rhabdomyolysis. During exercise, it is normal for muscles to experience some minuscule tears by which they grow, however, when you push your body too hard, muscle fibers can degenerate and get released into the blood where they are poisonous to the liver.

5. Can I do CrossFit at home?

Although CrossFit is traditionally performed in dedicated CrossFit gyms, the answer is yes, you can do CrossFit at home if you had to, perhaps because you simply do not have the time or there is no reputable CrossFit gym in your local area. The drawback, though, is that you will miss out on having the step by step guidance of a coach as well as the encouragement and moral support that comes with being a part of a CrossFit community.


So there you have it. Now you have all the basic facts about CrossFit training, all that’s left to do is get out there and try it for yourself. You just might find yourself falling in love with it.
