CrossFit, Too Hardcore or Just Enough?

By: Danie

My cousin started crossfit, within two weeks I was impressed. After a month, I think he convinced me that crossfit was hardcore and delivered results. However, he is a guy. Any man who lifts weights is going to get great results. So this caught my attention and I wanted to learn more!

There are a ton of crossfit gyms popping up everywhere.... crossfit is pretty minimalist you use your own body as resistance and there are lots of weights involved. I don't think that this is something you can do on your own, guidance is definitely needed.

I think most misconceptions for women are that the more weights you lift the bulkier you get. Well the truth is the more muscle you have the more fat you will burn. If you are doing crazy power lifting then you might bulk up but normal weight lifting might get you a result more in line with this.......

I think it is worth a try! Do you crossfit??


  1. I did crossfit in San Antonio with these guys who were Army Vets. It was INTENSE!! But the best part about doing having these Cpts screaming at me was that they had complete faith in me. I was the 2nd to last person finishing the sprints outside the building and the leaders were standing outside the gym waiting for me to come in - screaming their lungs out hoping I would go faster. It was AWESOME. I did it when a Groupon popped up for it and after the Groupon expired I didn't go back (it was way too expensive for me). But it's an amazing experience. Especially when you have a good 'tribe'.

    1. Hey Rachel!! Thanks for sharing your experience, that is soo awesome. You are making me want to try it more :)
