Why CrossFit Beats the Rest

So what sets CrossFit apart from all the other programmes out there?

CONSTANTLY VARIED

What I love about CrossFit is that you never quite know what you are coming up against. Every workout is different in length  and in the combination of exercises. One day you combine running with press ups and dips, the next day you are short stints on the rower combined with heavy deadlifts. And what thatleads to is being FIT in the true sense of the word. Cardio will improve your endurance and stamina, weightlifting and powerlifting movements improve your strength, speed, power and gymnastic and body weight movements help you develop balance, coordination, flexibility and accuracy. CrossFit is all about specializing in NOT specializing in order to be FIT for all life can throw at you. Nothing come close to helping you achieve this fitness like CrossFit.

The Do-Anywhere CrossFit Workout

No time? No equipment? No space? No problem. This travel-friendly, CrossFit-inspired workout will blast fat and sculpt muscle in minutes. No excuses!

For starters, there never seems to be enough room in your suitcase for bulky running shoes and the five pairs of wedges you just have to bring. Plus, it’s way too beautiful outside to be holed up in a gym (never mind a tiny hotel room), and your itinerary is jam-packed (you know, with all that poolside lounging).

THE EAT THIS, NOT THAT! DIET FOR CROSSFIT

When it comes to effective, efficient, calorie-torching, heart-pumping workouts, CrossFit tops our list for surefire paths to fitness prowess. And we’re not complaining about all the eye candy of chiseled abs we see at the gym, either. But a high-intensity gym regimen is only part of the equation when it comes to healthy, sustained weight loss and sculpting lean, toned muscle.

“Given the intensity of CrossFit workouts, an essential component of a good CrossFit diet is protein. Protein stabilizes blood sugar, provides energy and the fuel for workouts. CrossFitters should aim for approximately one gram of protein per kilogram of weight, so an average 130-pound woman should have at least 65 grams of protein while a 200-pound man should have about 100 grams of protein,” explains Dr. Tasneem Bhatia, MD, also known as “Dr.Taz,” a weight loss expert and author of What Doctors Eat and The 21-Day Belly Fix.
