Thurs 4/7 : How to select the Box for you?

By Scotty 0

There are just so many gym’s, functional fitness facilities, HIIT facilities offering CrossFit type classes (along with a million online programs!)

“What program should I do?” Here is my opinion.

At the end of the day regardless of whether you are doing individual programming, group programming, general CrossFit class programming as long as you are testing your own abilities through each of the modalities you will improve.

Lift weights, have fun, get your HR up, learn new tricks (skills)!

Exerpt form James Newbury:

Now if you are working toward something specific ( like endurance based events), yes you’ll be sticking to your own zone for you, but as a general guide there’s not a lot of difference between |3 rounds of 100 double unders, 75 push ups, 50 med ball cleans| AND -> |3 rounds of 200m run, 45 ring dips, 50 wall balls|

Point being these two different workouts are coming from two different programs and one is no better than the other.

People will have their opinions but in mine it’s more about the environment you do these workouts in. The coaches conducting the workouts, the people you share the workout with, the feeling you get when you walk into a particular gym and the mindset that comes with it are all more important to progression and results.

As I’ve said before, I’d prefer to train in the most basic facility with the friendliest people than the best facility with bad vibe.

Find the facility with a great group of people & energy to train with, the results will come!
