Many of you will already be aware of the new guidelines on alcohol intake, it has now been suggested by the government that a male should drink no more than seven pints of beer a week (fourteen units of alcohol) – the same as the maximum limit for women.
Whilst many of us already know that excessive drinking is potentially detrimental to your health, at CrossFit Blackwater we wanted to talk about the topic further for those who might need a bit of persuading when it comes to choosing exercise over that extra beer!
There is nothing wrong with enjoying the occasional pint, or the odd glass of Merlot but why binge over the weekend when you can find a local gym and join in with our CrossFit workout programs?
Our loyal members will confirm that working out definitely has its benefits, especially at our CrossFit gym in Essex! Our experienced coaches run classes that are catered to the individual, in a fun and friendly training environment.
So why choose our box over booze?
- Your general fitness and physique will improve – providing that you try and workout a few times a week, we can guarantee that you will start to see results. That ‘beer belly’ which once got in the way will soon flatten and you’ll start to feel more confident in yourself!
- As you get healthier, so will your bank account – a monthly membership at our gym costs roughly the same amount as a drinking session at the weekend. When most people have a couple of nights out a month, we don’t need to tell you what provides better value for money not to mention better for your health!
- The mind is happier – Numerous studies have proven that exercise has a drastic impact on a person’s mental health. However, many people will still decide to drink their sorrows away, which has got to be the worst sort of therapy as you will no doubt feel dreadful the next day.
- The aftermath – Our CrossFit classes my result in a tight hamstring here or there but we think a handstand pushup definitely beats a hangover!
So if you’re feeling down and despondent about that bit of extra weight or the beginnings of a beer belly, why not try CrossFit? We’re welcoming new members through our door each and every day and would love to meet a few more.
