We’ve previously published a blog highlighting a variety of reasons that some of our members choose to CrossFit and the life changing impact that their CrossFit journey has had upon them. You can read more here > http://www.crossfitleyland.co.uk/why-do-you-crossfit/. In this blog, we delve into the importance of finding a gym / ‘box’ / fitness community that shares the same vision and values as yourself, that motivates you to turn up consistently and that supports and educates you throughout your journey.
The great thing about CrossFit is that it is “universally scalable”, or in other words, suitable for all. Any given class, or workout can be adapted and scaled to suit the needs of any individual. Providing the programming scaling options are sufficient and the workout intention clear enough. Any of our WOD’s at CFL should be able to kick the ass of Matt Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey (should they wish to drop in!) in the same way it does to our masters (over 55’s) members. That is one of the main reasons that you have coaches in your class, advising you and guiding you on scaling options and progressions. One of the other reasons you have coaches with you in class, is to keep you safe and teach you the fundamentals of the movements that we practice. This is where a class based coaching facility and a regular gym differ.
