Crossfit is a fitness phenomenon which has exploded in popularity around the world. It definitely gets results, but it is not for everybody. There are alternatives to Crossfit which achieve results just as good as those Crossfit achieves.
Body weight workouts
Body weight workouts are simple and easy to complete, but this doesn’t equate to easy. Using only body weight resistance, put together core movements such as squats, push ups, sit ups, hamstring thrusts and plank holds. This creates a whole body workout that will be surprisingly challenging.
Running is an all-round workout that has the added bonus of an outdoor setting. Starting out slowly for beginners, running is easily adaptable as conditioning improves. Running is an appropriate activity for all ages and fitness levels and can be done in a group or alone.
High Intensity Interval Workouts (HIIT)
HIIT workouts are designed to include strength and cardiovascular conditioning into one workout. Short, sharp exercises that push your body to the limit are combined with active recovery. HITT workouts will increase the foundation that your fitness is based on so you can perform better in other areas of your life.
Kettlebells provide an alternative to traditional racked weights. Designed to be swing, pushed, pulled, cleaned and jerked, Kettlebell workouts will combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training into one workout. Kettlebells engage the whole body in almost every move, providing a whole body workout every time.
