8 best CrossFit workouts you can do at home
CrossFit workouts are quite the rage in the fitness world right now but what exactly do they consist of? More importantly, do they actually work? Let's find out!
What is CrossFit?
According to some of the people responsible for this fitness craze, CrossFit is “the sport of fitness.”
CrossFit is designed to get fitness disciplines suitably primed in all the main areas: cardio endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy.
There’s no doubting its worthiness as a fitness option, especially if we’re flat out with young kids or working long hours that don’t allow for regular gym sessions. So if you’re keen on some serious and varied exercise you can do at home any time, CrossFit workouts may well be the answer.
Here are 8 CrossFit workouts you can try at home. Pick and choose the best ones for you based on your fitness level – some are low intensity, others a genuine high-intensity challenge.
If you’re not sure of your fitness level or have a medical condition, check with your doctor or an expert at your local gym first.
