As previously discussed, FitWAR has promised to provide topical information from the medical, fitness, and wellness industries. Today our focus is more within the fitness industry, specifically on Crossfit gyms and what to make of their increase in popularity over the past few years. As a fitness professional, one can understand why Crossfit has grown so quickly. The workouts can be fun, very challenging, and only require some open space and very little equipment. But how safe are these exercise routines, and are they effective for everyone?
I came across a great explanation in an article written by Justin Levine, a fitness professional in central California discussing the very same subject. He does such a thorough, insightful job of answering these questions that I decided to share his viewpoint with you, as the old saying goes, ‘I could not have said it better myself.’ From a professional standpoint I could not agree more with the thoughts that have been articulated in the article. However, from a business standpoint I really hope that Cross fit continues to attract new members because after 6 months or so they will be FitWAR’s newest patients do to the various injuries sustained by the Cross Fit ‘Work outs of the day.’
