Motivation can be one of the hardest things to maintain when you’re trying to get back into a serious workout regimen. New Year’s resolutions come each year and that initial burst of ambition fades away just as quickly. A study from the University of Scranton shows that only 44% of people end up maintaining their New Year’s goals. This is the beauty of CrossFit. Unlike other exercises where you can inadvertently cheat yourself out of the fullest workout, CrossFit requires you to maximize your efforts in short sets of non-stop intensity. At CrossFit Rittenhouse, we have the trainers and resources to help you learn the most cutting-edge workout on the market.
Muscle confusion has often been cited as the gospel amongst workout regimens and this is something that CrossFit truly excels at. These dynamic exercises ensure that your body never truly gets fully accustomed to the motions. And more importantly, because these short intense workouts never remain static, your mind remains actively engaged throughout the duration of the training session, which helps push yourself harder than you would just running on a treadmill for an hour watching television. In the Rittenhouse gym, we have an inclusive community that you can help you surpass previous physical limits and achieve a level of fitness you never thought possible.
As adults, we all lead fairly busy lives. Work and other obligations can seriously diminish the amount of time we have to devote to our fitness routines. This is another huge advantage that CrossFit offers over other workout programs. Because your individual sets are normally designed to be around 10-15 minutes of continuous motion, you can obtain an intense calorie burn without spending hours doing the same repetitive activities over and over. Instead of watching money waste away on a gym membership that isn’t fully benefiting your needs, why not try the Rittenhouse gym for an experience that will ensure the best possible workout for the time you have to devote to your fitness?
Benefits to Your Health
Beyond just burning calories and fat, CrossFit has other benefits that are extremely advantageous to your personal fitness. Because these workouts are tailored to exercise every part of your body, you’ll find that you have improved flexibility and overall conditioning in comparison to more typical training sessions. In addition to improved joint mobility, you’ll find that using different muscles you were previously neglecting previously will have positive metabolic effects for your overall health. We hope to see you at CrossFit Rittenhouse soon, where our passionate culture will help you take your fitness to the next level.
