CrossFit is not for Everyone

IMG_3156

 

Before I start I want to make a very clear statement: “CrossFit is for EVERYONE!” Just keep reading and my hope is that you will realize it is for you also!

 

What do you imagine when you think of a “CrossFit Gym/Box” or the athletes within those walls?

The reason this topic has come up is because the mass population is intimidated by the stereotypical idea of CrossFit.  The fear of elite fitness workouts, the “beach bodies” and fear of failing is initially what keeps us normal folks from taking the first step towards CrossFit.  Is any of this familiar to you?

 

I have great news!  The people  inside the walls of  StoneWay CrossFit are just like you.  They are normal human beings who have a normal life and have  goals as you do!  They want to lose weight, increase strength, achieve that six-pack, get ready for their wedding, feel comfortable with their shirt off, feel comfortable in their swim suit, get in the best shape of their life, look amazing for their upcoming class reunion and the list goes on.

 

The Truth about  StoneWay CrossFit:

-It’s hard (mentally and physically)

-There’s a learning process.

-There are beginners classes (Any legit gym will have a “Fundamentals/Essentials” program)

-CrossFit coaches are trained professionals

-ALL CrossFit gyms (that are legit) offer a FREE consultation with a certified CrossFit Coach before having you ever spending a dollar

-In a consultation, you will discuss: goals, injuries, fears, expectations

-Thinking “I am out of shape” Will never change, even athletes that have been training for years think this. CrossFit is constantly varied and you will feel this way even at your best

-The CrossFit community is unlike any thing you have ever been a part of

 

There are so many things that keep people from trying CrossFit and it’s simply because of the misconception of CrossFit.  I have been a personal trainer for over 7  years and I have been practicing the CrossFit methodology personally for over four years and using it with  ALL my clients for over three and a half years.  My clientele has ranged from ages 10 to 80 years old and there has never been one person who could not do CrossFit

 

Tough Love

CrossFit is not for everyone! The purpose of this statement is because the CrossFit intensity, dedication and training is not for everyone.  When I say it’s not for everyone I’m simply referring to the individual who is not willing to put themselves through the regiment program.

 

When you walk into StoneWay Crossfit for a class you will be given a warm-up, and a workout, For example,  Each day we practice a formal introduction as a group that I call the “Ice Breaker”  be expected to participate and encourage all the athletes in your class.  For some individuals this is too much interaction and accountability.  That is why I say,”CrossFit is not for Everyone!”

 

I firmly believe StoneWay CrossFit  is 100% legit and  anyone who walks though our doors will realize CrossFit is for them.  Our coaches hold each of their athletes to standard which simply means they care about their athletes safety and progression.

 

If you are still on the fence thinking, “Is CrossFit for me?” Please contact me and I will personally  show you a version of CrossFit that would work for you. Or I will connect you with a local CrossFit gym that I believe will help you.
