When it comes to workout options, you have plenty. Going online and finding a WOD to do on your own is certainly one of those options. So why not just stick with working out on your own?
The benefits of becoming a CrossFit member goes beyond getting in a good workout. A CrossFit membership doesn’t mean that you’re just another member of a gym. It means that you are part of a supportive community. And the benefits of this community may make you reconsider your solo workouts.
Being part of a CrossFit community gives you a sense of belonging, social support, and a place to share common interests and goals with others.
Sense of Belonging
When you show up for a class, the WOD on the board is for everyone who shows up. Yes, you can scale up or down to suit your fitness level, but the workout is the same. It doesn’t matter what you look like, how long you’ve been working out, or how much you can deadlift. That workout is as much for you as anyone else. You belong because you showed up.
When you complete a WOD, you do the work as an individual. But you still have a group of people right there to help you get that last rep or to encourage you to add just five more pounds to your final set. Those people are your team. And as you develop friendships with people on this “team,” you’ll find that the support extends beyond the gym to those moments when your alarm goes off in the morning, and you’re about to hit the snooze button. But then you remember that friendly group of people who will notice if you’re not there.
Common Interests and Goals
A community is the result of shared interests and goals. With CrossFit, you meet a group of people that you immediately have something in common with. Everyone may show up to a workout with a different goal in mind, but you all still share a common goal. To work hard.
CrossFit is more than just a workout you do. It’s a place where you can grow and achieve your fitness goals. We’d love for you to be a part of the MagMile Community. Contact us today to get started.
