The Health Benefits of Living Near a Gym

Could simply living near a gym benefit your health? According to a new study, it might! Today, the team at CrossFit Rock Hill wants you to know about the positive impact of having CrossFit near you – or any other fitness center, for that matter.

According to research, it seems that middle-aged adults and seniors who live near local gyms tend to be more slim and fit. At the same time, individuals who don’t live near fast food restaurants tend to be healthier, too.

Scientists believe the connection lies in the fact that local gyms offer people a more convenient way to get the exercise they need. Increasing access to nearby facilities for physical activity, combined with reducing the number of fast food developments, could lower the risk of obesity and other unhealthy conditions within a community.

The CrossFit program on its own provides many health benefits to particpants. However, having CrossFit gyms near you makes it easier than ever to get the exercise you need to live a full, healthy life.

Does CrossFit Have Any Drawbacks?

Choosing an exercise program is never easy. There are so many options to choose from these days, and each one requires you to weight the pros and cons. The same is true for CrossFit. Our coaches want you to have a clear picture of our program before you begin. Depending on what you’re looking for, there may be some drawbacks. Here’s what the team at CrossFit Rock Hill thinks you might not like about our program.

  • Workouts that constantly change – The CrossFit program is designed to provide participants with different workouts each day, all of which are helping you transform the different muscle groups in your body. But not everyone likes this much variety in their exercise routines.
  • Not as specialized as some may like – CrossFit’s wide range of workouts means you’re not able to focus as much on one particular type of exercise or one particular muscle group. Our broad approach to overall fitness may not offer the specialization some are looking for.

If you’d like to know more, come to CrossFit Rock Hill for CrossFit near you. Our coaches will be glad to help you decide if our workouts are right for you. You can even attend a free intro class. Check us out and see what you think!
