Quick, picture Crossfit. Chances are that quick mental image either had you shaking your head in confusion or ready to jump up and head to the gym. Warning: this podcast may shift you from the former to the latter.
Crossfit has struggled with an image problem (i.e. it’s just for pumped up guys grunting and sweating) and vocal critics who claim itâ€™s dangerous.
But despite all of this, it keeps growing in popularity. The reason? New recruits, especially women, are discovering that it’s neither of the above and a really great community to boot.
In this podcast, host Tim Wohlberg digs into this fitness trend with Crossfit coach Jennifer Thomson. He asks straight up what’s behind the bad rap (including those who say it’s harmful), finds out what to expect in a class and how to find the right CrossFit gym for you. He also discovers why CrossFitters love their workout and their gym family.
It’s time to get to the bottom of those mixed reviews and get the straight goods about this no-nonsense workout.
If this podcast has you ready to run to the gym for some serious sweat action, you can catch up with Jennifer at Academy of Lions in Toronto.
