CrossFit and Females Part 2

By April 2, 2013October 7th, 2015NEWS


So here are 4 more reason why female should get involved in CrossFit North Devon. Take that jump and book on our foundation course and get involved in our Fitness community. I promise you will not regret it.

1) It burns calories like crazy. Try doing one of the WODs with running or rowing + compound lifts (like deadlifts, weighted squats, or cleans). It is not only exhausting on all levels but also brings you into a whole other realm of calorie burning. Workouts like this will keep you lean and mean. More Calories burnt = decrease in Body Fat!

2)It’s always challenging you to learn new exercises, so it keeps workouts fresh and exciting. Walking at an incline on the “dreadmill” 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week? No, thank you. There are more fun and productive things to be done!

3)It’s an investment in your future. Like you, I don’t want to suffer from bone density issues when I’m 50. I want my fitness level to bounce back as quickly as possible after I have kids. I want to continue to feel strong and powerful into my 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. If you do too, now is the time to make the investment.DSCF3687

4)It strengthens your core (WITHOUT doing 200 reps a day of ab-specific work). CrossFit includes so many compound exercises that whether or not it’s your goal, you will build core strength. So, once you inevitably peel away fat you’ll have some amazing abs to show for it.

5) THE MAIN REASON is….the other CF guys train topless! and some of them are pretty sexy!
