It’s a trend, I don’t buy into those things; also it’s expensive and probably not worth it
It might have been like that in the early days, when CrossFit was a new thing and people saw all these benefits they’d never experienced in any other sport before. CrossFit has matured since then, and the scene now is nothing but friendly; driven by the desire to perform and be healthy, instead of by physical appearance.
Every session is personalised and you’ll never walk out without a piece of advice, which happens very often in other sporting environments. Sessions are small and you have to book in, which means there’s a space in the session meant for you and you only. A coach will always have time for you.
There’s a wide range of training possibilities and coaches are educated in all of them, and how to scale them for every individual. Inside a Box you’ll find a community of people from all walks of life and, besides improving your fitness and physical health, you’re likely to find great friends and build confidence and other positive transferrable skills.
