CrossFit – Try Something New Next Year!

Now that 2016 is approaching, people are thinking up a new year’s resolution that they are adamant to accomplish; most of them revolve around losing the few extra pounds gained over the course of the Christmas period!

Thousands of gym memberships are purchased at the start of each year with the ambition to become a fitness fanatic and get that perfect beach body for the summer, but how long do these memberships last? A month? Maybe three?

Some people stick to it; others just sigh and say that fitness is not for them. Lack of motivation is one of the key reasons why people stop working out, not because fitness doesn’t agree – it’s a lifestyle, not a food allergy!

Gym Motivation – Level Zero

At your average gym in witham, as a beginner, getting motivated for a workout can be just as challenging as the workout itself (unless you’re a die-hard-fitness fan of course!)

If you are new to the world of fitness, going to the gym can also be a daunting experience. It’s quite overwhelming entering a room full of machines that you have no idea how to use but are too embarrassed to ask. Yet when you’ve finally figured out what’s what, you find that you’re not making any progress. Just because you don’t know how to do something , it shouldn’t be completely avoided!

CrossFit Motivation – Level Hero

This is where CrossFit comes in; you can’t help but get motivated! No knowledge of fitness is required to join – literally anyone can come along! It’s a group workout, so you help to motivate each other with professional and qualified CrossFit trainers giving you one-on-one support throughout. If you’re unsure how to do something, our coaches are on hand to assist you.

There is no need to go every day; two or three sessions a week will be more than enough to start seeing visible results. At our CrossFit gym, exercises can be tailored to meet each individual’s level of fitness, which pushes you further than you would do alone.

More importantly, CrossFit is fun – the most effective motivation factor of them all. People who don’t work out tend to use the reason that they find the gym boring. We ensure that with our CrossFit sessions this simply cannot be the case; everyone who has attended CrossFit Blackwater will agree!

So when it comes to making your New Year’s resolution, consider CrossFit as a great way to get in shape for 2016! If you’re still undecided, come along to one of our free introductory sessions!
