CrossFit is perfect for people who love high-intensity workouts, want to have fun, and meet people. However, CrossFit is different from any other workout you’ve tried, so here are a few things you should know before you start.

You Don’t Have to Be Fit to Start

Even if you haven’t been working out for a while or you’re a complete beginner, that shouldn’t stop you from trying CrossFit. You’ll learn faster than you think.

It’ll Be Overwhelming at First

Chances are you’ll probably be confused until you learn more about CrossFit and its lingo and that’s totally normal. CrossFit gyms are different from regular gyms so you shouldn’t be discouraged if you feel overwhelmed at first because most beginners do.

You’ll Probably Make Friends

Unlike most other gym, CrossFit is like a small community where people learn to work together and support each other. That’s why this is a great place to meet people and make new friends.

The Workouts are Short

The actual CrossFit workout lasts no more than 20-25 minutes and the rest of the time is reserved for a warm-up and an explanation of exercises. These workouts are short but very intense and you’ll have to work hard in those 20 minutes.
