If you’ve heard anything about CrossFit, you’ve probably heard that it’s a great workout. And, once you give it a try, you might get hooked. It’s true, CrossFit has a lot of benefits.

Here are some of the physical, social, and mental benefits of CrossFit:

Physical Benefits

CrossFit is known for being a functional strength and conditioning program. What does that mean? Over time, the activities you do on a daily basis will get easier. In fact, almost all of the movements you perform in a CrossFit workout will have not only a positive impact on your physical health but also your overall health.

The-Physical-Social-and-Mental-Benefits-of-CrossFit-MagMile-CrossFitThrough constantly varied, functional movements, CrossFit workouts target ten fitness domains:

  • Cardiovascular/Respiratory Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Coordination
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Accuracy

Social Benefits

The CrossFit community is full of coaches and members that all together form a vast support network. And, the friends you make through CrossFit can help with holding you accountable to make it to your weekly workouts. When you have coaches or other members expecting you in class, you’re more motivated to show up and perform your best.

Mental Benefits

Along with the physical and social benefits come mental benefits, too. If you’re someone who tends to get bored with a traditional weight training routine at your local gym, then CrossFit might be what you’ve been missing. The variety of the skills and movements you find in CrossFit prevents boredom. Plus, the sense of accomplishment you get at the end of each workout encourages you to keep coming back for more.
