The 3 Biggest CrossFit Myths
Share this article on

Are you one of the 4 million people that spends an hour a day at “the Box”? If you’re still dragging your feet on joining a CrossFit program, one of these myths might be keeping you from getting in the best shape of your life.


 

Myth 1: “I’m not competitive, so I won’t like CrossFit.”

If you’ve ever watched the CrossFit games or seen the highlight reels on YouTube, you might be worried that a CrossFit gym would be way too intense for you. The idea of working out with a roomful of screaming ninjas is honestly a little bit intimidating!

Here’s the good news: there’s a style of CrossFit for everyone. Wanna be the next handstand walking champion? Go for it. But if you just want to lose a few pounds and get toned for summertime at the beach, we can help you reach that goal too.

At Fit Factory, you can join a class specifically geared towards beginners, you can work one-on-one with a personal trainer, or you can come on over during open gym time.

Whichever option you choose, we’ll help you beat personal plateaus and reach your own individual goals - no competition required.

 

Myth 2: “I’m not in great shape, so CrossFit isn’t for me.”

 

Maybe you’ve fallen off the fitness bandwagon, or you’re recovering from an injury, a pregnancy, or a stressful season in your life. You’re ready to make a change (for real, this time), but you’re worried that you aren’t strong enough to survive a CrossFit class.

Let’s be honest: all those box jumps look pretty tough, and you get winded just walking up the stairs.

We’re not gonna lie to you. Yes, CrossFit is intense. And yes, we want to help all our members get stronger and healthier. But, honestly, CrossFit can be the right choice for all levels of fitness.

You don’t have to dive into our advanced classes right away. You can get started with our One-on-One Beginner's Training package, and one of our awesome trainers will help you learn the ropes, build up endurance, and take your health to the next level. (Added bonus? Built-in accountability and a personalized nutrition plan!)  
 

Myth 3: “I don’t want to get bulky, so CrossFit isn’t the right workout for me.”

 

Whenever your friends post pics from their CrossFit classes, you can’t help but notice that they look like they belong on the cover of Flex magazine. It’s all washboard abs, biceps as big as your head, and protein shakes morning, noon, and night.

You’re ready to get your health back on track, but you’re not sure you want to reach bodybuilder-level fitness. You just want to drop a few pounds and have enough energy to take your dog for a run at the end of the day.

Well, guess what? CrossFit isn’t just about building mega muscles. Our workouts will help you get lean, trim, and toned. And, if you ever want to bulk up a little bit, we’ll help you with that too. But it’s not the default result, we promise.

Plus, if you sign up with a personal trainer, they’ll help you customize a workout and nutrition plan that’s perfect for you and your goals.
