Is Crossfit For Me?

Is CrossFit For Me?

At CrossFit Watsonville, we throw around a lot of words like “hardcore”, “intensity” or “elite” when we talk about CrossFit fitness. We use esoteric and scientific explanations and terms for what we do. We like to talk numbers and weights, such as putting bodyweight overhead, pumping out 30 or 40 pullups, deadlifting double bodyweight, rowing a sub 1:30 for 500 meters, or repping muscle ups. We talk workouts and times: a 3 minute Fran or Grace, this many rounds on Cindy, an 8:00 Helen. We are happy that Olympic and other high level, elite athletes such as professional fighters are utilizing CrossFit in ever increasing numbers. We are proud that Special Forces, Navy Seals, SWAT, firefighters, and others who are often in harms way are using CrossFit to stay alive. Basically, we are serious about fitness. And, in the real world, fitness is a relative thing. You may never turn in a record score on Fight Gone Bad, or a record time on Angie, or win the CrossFit Games. That’s OK, we may not either.

CrossFit is for everyone. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience or level. We use our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease as for cage fighters one month out from a televised bout. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not by kind. Our special forces, firefighters, surfers, mountain bike riders, computer programers, mechanics, and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

So, yes, CrossFit is right for you. It is right for everyone. That doesn’t mean it is easy, in fact, it may be the most challenging workout you will ever come across. But, it may also be the most rewarding and provide the best results! We will push you (and ourselves) for greater intensity, better technique, faster times, better form, heavier loads, and more reps.

Come with desire–you need to want the best fitness of your life. No matter what your age, weight, experience, or fitness level, the equation stays the same–max effort leads to max intensity which leads to a fitness level that will astound you every day. CrossFit changes lives. Let it change yours just like it has changed ours. Why choose crossfit watsonville over other gyms? Click here to find out.
