CrossFit Workouts at Home: You can do these 24 workouts anywhere!

Everyone knows that CrossFit has taken the workout scene by storm. Now there’s even a professional league dedicated to CrossFit competitions (though it’s not associated with Crossfit).

It’s awesome that so many people are getting in to the CrossFit culture. Even if you don’t agree with the theologies of CrossFit and Paleo, the more people seeking a healthy lifestyle the better. We need all the help we can get to stay healthy and keep our bodies strong.

Another great gift that CrossFit has contributed to the health and fitness world? Accessible workouts and a change of pace. CrossFit workouts are incredibly challenging. They build muscle while stressing your cardiorespiratory system.

Are CrossFit Workouts A Good Choice For Reaching Weight Loss And Health Goals?

CrossFit and “CrossFit-style workouts” (Some gyms use CrossFit style workouts but aren’t actually CrossFit boxes) are exploding in popularity across the country as the next best thing for getting in shape, improving health, and losing weight.

I’m not going to start a controversy and call CrossFit a fad — because it’s not, it’s a legitimate sport — but if your goal is to lose weight and improve health, we have to understand some distinctions between sport exercise and smart exercise.

NUTRITION

Nutrition

This is a list of frequently asked questions we get about nutrition and links to the resources we’ve created to answer them. You can find everything you need to know to get started with a sound CrossFit diet  in our resources section here. But most of all, you need to know that nutrition is not about following a diet. Proper nutrition is a lifestyle. Don’t try to fool yourself into thinking that you can get proper nutrition without altering your lifestyle. There is no
easy answer or magic bullet. Only education and consistently sound choices every day will sustain a lifestyle of proper nutrition.

Nutrition also shouldn’t become an obsession that inhibits your daily life. Everyone lets loose from time to time and shares some birthday cake or ice cream with friends. Finding the happy medium is the key to achieving your goals, and we want to help you find that medium. Start by educating yourself using the information below.

10 Of The Best Workouts For Weight Loss

Before we get into the best workouts for weight loss and how to use exercise as a tool in your weight loss journey, let’s make two things clear. First, there are a huge number of reasons to work out that have absolutely nothing to do with losing weight. From mental health benefits to better sleep to boosted immunity, regular exercise is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. Exercise doesn’t have to be about losing weight, and for a huge number of people, it isn’t.

And that brings us to the second thing: If your goal is to lose weight, you should know that working out isn’t enough on its own to actually make that happen. There’s so much else that goes into weight loss and body fat loss; in fact, exercise isn’t even technically necessary to lose weight for most people. We wouldn’t ever recommend a weight loss regimen that doesn’t include exercise, though, because exercise is good for you and it’s a healthy way to live. And on that note, even if you are doing everything “right”—working out regularly, eating appropriately—lifestyle habits like sleep and stress, and health conditions (think thyroid issues, to name just one of many) can get in the way of your weight loss efforts. Weight loss is an extremely personal journey that doesn’t look or work the exact same way from one person to the next.
