10 Reasons to join Crossfit Sligo

10 Reason to Join CrossFit Sligo

1.CrossFit is the new definition of fitness:

 What is Fitness? For years the fitness industry have been unable to define fitness, until now. 

CrossFit has defined fitness as “an increase in work capacity across broad time and modal domains”. This basically means fitness should not be determined by any one trait but should be determined by how good an individual is at everything, to achieve this level of fitness we must specialize in nothing.

2. CrossFit workouts are competitive events:

This friendly competition helps motivates people. Whether you’re competing for a PB (Personal Best) , or competing with a friend in class, you will be amazed at the effect this has on your results and how much more fun this makes your training.   CrossFit will awaken something inside of you, and the feeling is addictive and amazing.

3. CrossFit is not just fitness, it’s a community:

Many people may find CrossFit intimidating at first, but you’ll quickly realise how supportive the CrossFit community can be . You will never have to workout alone again.  Not only will you benefit from expert coaching and a huge online community through our website which you can use to discover and share stories with other members, but you’ll also develop relationships in the gym that truly make training fun. This is what sets CrossFit apart from other programs. The people in your gym become your teammates, and you’re likely to bond quickly with anyone you meet on the street wearing a CrossFit tee shirt. People are passionate about CrossFit for a reason, it’s up to you to find out what that is.

4. CrossFit produces MEASURABLE results:

Unlike most other fitness programs, when you do CrossFit, you will have measurable and repeatable data to prove you are getting fitter.  Intensity equals POWER.  And power is generated by moving a load quickly.  This means you can record your scores in workouts and repeat them at a later time and compare your scores. Not only will you see and feel improvements physically, your scores will prove it.

5. CrossFit prepares you for ANYTHING:

CrossFit trains all the metabolic systems, as opposed to just one like in most  other sports.   There are three metabolic pathways that produce the energy to perform any activity: the phosphagen, glycolytic, and the oxidative systems.  Most programs focus on one or two of the systems making you a specialist, but this causes a weakness in the others pathways.  CrossFit will train you to become a well rounded athlete, spending time in all three time domains and improving your work capacity in any activity that you do.  So the next time you encounter a bear you’ll have a choice. You could either take the bear down in one swooping punch and wrestle with it until it is too fatigued to fight back, or run away from it for hours on end.

6. CrossFit emphasizes intensity, and intensity is what creates results:

Intensity, of course, is relative, allowing everyone to train at a level appropriate to their own physical and psychological limitations we believe here at CrossFit Sligo Efficiency comes before intensity. However higher intensity exercise has been proven to be more beneficial, intensity is not something to be afraid of.

7. CrossFit creates ATHLETES:

CrossFit promotes functional exercises by emphasizing the movements which create better core strength, stamina, coordination, agility, and balance to name a few. You’ll begin to focus less on trying to “look fit”, and more on ACTUALLY becoming fit.

8. Your weaknesses can’t hide from CrossFit:

The workouts will constantly vary, keeping you on your toes and forcing you to attack your weaknesses, this is how CrossFit making you a better all around athlete.  This is something that most people avoid when training on their own, which severely limits progress.  So don’t be afraid of your weaknesses, or forget about those exercises that you might hate, instead face them head on with relentless determination and you will get results you never thought possible.

9. CrossFit promotes long-term health & Aesthetics:

Functional movements are named as such for a reason.  They make us more functional. They help us move more efficiently and prevent injuries in our everyday lives.  Combined with a diet that promotes longevity and performance, you will feel better, perform better and have energy even as you age.

10. CrossFit is life-changing:

The results you see from Crossfit transfer over to other aspects of life.  The confidence that it delivers will allow you to perform activities you never thought possible. Not only will you feel better physically, but most people notice changes in their performance at work, at home, and in their relationships.

"Working with Edel Fitzpatrick was one of the biggest eye openers I've had in the fitness industry! She has a vast experience and a foundation of knowledge on human kinetics and physiology second to none! Her take no nonsense attitude and positive influence on my training made such a difference to my mentality in terms of what I can achieve physically!! Absolute inspiration and absolute tank ;-) The pleasure (and the pain) was all mine and I'm sad I won't be coached by her again !! :-( World Class! "Michael Tully"
