CrossFit and Females – What are the Benefits?

By March 27, 2013NEWS

Female 1Over the next couple of weeks we are going to blog a number of reason why females should do CrossFit. At CrossFit North Devon we have a large number of girls that enjoy and understand the physical and social benefits of CrossFit and the CF community.

If you’re a female looking to get into better shape and improve your health, CrossFit is a must-try exercise you can’t miss out on. Many women shy away from intense workout programs, thinking that they’re better suited to slugging it out on the treadmill, elliptical, or bike day in and day out in their quest for a better body.

But, is that really the case? Or is there a better way?

CrossFit is a workout style that offers too many benefits to overlook, especially for women. Let’s go over some reasons why you should get started with CrossFit North Devon

Increased Muscle Mass And Metabolism

The very first reason why you should consider Crossfit training is due to the increased muscle mass it will help you obtain. Not to worry, you won’t be turning into the next ‘Hulk’ overnight. Many women have this concern, but there’s no need to be worried. You simply don’t possess the hormones required to develop this type of muscle.

Instead, you’ll develop lean muscle that helps accentuate your female figure and helps you look more toned and defined.

Furthermore, the added muscle mass will also help to boost your metabolic rate, which will greatly increase your fat loss progress. Muscles burns more calories then fat!

Less Boredom And More Enjoyment In Physical FitnessCFND Girls

Secondly  another reason why women should try Crossfit workouts is simply because they’re fun. Unlike the traditional cardio workout where you’re doing the same repetitive motion over and over again, Crossfit workouts are always changing.

As such, you’ll look forward to each and every session you’re doing, you’ll never hit a progress plateau, and you won’t ever find you’re bored with the routine.

So if you have not taken part in a Crossfit workout before, and sitting on the fence today is the day to give it a try. You definitely won’t regret it. Sign up for our Free Taster Session!
