Consisting mainly of a mix of aerobic exercise, calisthenics (body weight exercises), and weight lifting, CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program which has seen a rise in popularity in recent years. Thinking of trying out CrossFit for the first time? Here’s why you should give it a shot.
1. It makes you a more well-rounded athlete
Unlike other fitness regimes, CrossFit combines aspects of multiple types of sporting activities into a program which combines elements of weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, running, rowing and other aerobic sports. CrossFit prioritizes mobility, flexibility, range of motion and functionality which results in a wide-range of anatomical motion. This leads to improved mobility and stability of your joints, as well as stronger muscles and enhanced motor skills.
