Are you bored at the gym? Are you tired of the same old routine? Are you still not getting the results you’re looking for? Does this sound like the start of an infomercial?
If you answered yes to at least two of those questions, then maybe it’s time you joined the fastest-growing strength-and-conditioning-training trend known as CrossFit. At the CrossFit Games, hosted by Reebok, I had the opportunity to experience what this training style is really like.
It’s a vigorous workout that combines weight training, aerobics and gymnastics all in one so that you become fit in every area of your game. The goal is to be functionally fit: to push every aspect of your body to the max so that you’re healthy, strong and in shape. Not just so you can lift a ton of weight or run a minute mile, but so you’re fit to do anything that life throws at you.
If you're still unconvinced, read on to find out why CrossFit is better than what you’re doing at the gym right now.

If you’re the type of person who moseys into a gym, does a round of bench presses, chats it up and then eases your way through a light workout, then CrossFit is going to be a serious wake-up call.
If the aforementioned workout is a light cup of coffee that slowly wakes you up, CrossFit is a shot of five-hour energy. It’s a fast-paced, intense workout that can take less than 15 minutes a day because that quarter of an hour is going to be condensed, nonstop movement. It may only be three or four routines, such as burpees, a jog and squats, but the idea is that you keep doing each one over and over through the set time.
It’s a concentrated shot of exercise and it burns the system — in a good way.
