“Hey, where are the machines?”
“You, my friend, are the machine in this one.”
So what is CrossFit? CrossFit isn’t a workout. It’s a lifestyle driven by health enthusiasts. “The CrossFit program is driven by data. Using whiteboards as scoreboards, keeping accurate scores and records, running a clock, and precisely defining the rules and standards for performance, we not only motivate unprecedented output but derive both relative and absolute metrics at every workout. Even if you want to quit, your friends at the training center won’t let you.” says Greg Classman, the founder of CrossFit. “It is exactly what people need in life, a workout which is gradually taking the form of a sport.”
CrossFit training is based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more.
The best part of CrossFit is its reward. People can get to express their fitness in everyday life, which is usually not the case with weight training or other gym oriented workouts.
But while CrossFit training is the best way to keep you up and active, training centers can be hard to find. To address this problem, a Delhi-based firm, Fitpass has tied up with over 1250 gyms, CrossFit studios, fitness and yoga studios across Delhi-NCR at a monthly price of ₹999. Fitpass’ top CrossFit partners include Reebok CrossFit, an international brand which has mastered the science behind CrossFit. Fitpass’ CrossFit partners also include Gold’s Gym, Elemention Gym etc. which offer specialized CrossFit training as well.
