How to Find the Best Fitness Program for You

Are you looking for the right exercise programs for your skill level and schedule? Here at CrossFit Rock Hill, we know it can be tough for people to find the best fit when it comes to workouts. Check out this list of things that can help you find the perfect exercise match for you.

Think about your schedule

First, it’s important that you think about how exercise will fit into your schedule. Exercise should not add stress to your daily routines. Know how much time you have to devote to working out and find programs that meet that need. This is all about your health, so start by finding something that works with your schedule, not against it.

Determine your fitness or weight loss goals

Next, clearly define your fitness or weight loss goals. Don’t try to take on too much when you start working out. If you want to lose weight, try to think of that separately from your overall fitness.

Keep combination training programs in mind

When looking at routines that work with your specific fitness or weight loss goal, look at programs that offer a variety of ways to get fit. CrossFit programs fit the bill! With each visit, you’ll experience a wide variety of exercises that perfectly suited for both new and expert fitness enthusiasts.

If you’re looking for exercise programs that help you get active and have fun at the same time, come to CrossFit Rock Hill.

Why Is Flexibility Work Good for CrossFit Beginners?

Cardio and strength training are both great components of a workout. They’re especially good for people who are just starting to exercise. But there’s something else you should consider adding to your fitness routine: flexibility work. If you’re thinking of joining exercise programs like CrossFit in the new year, make sure flexibility is a part of the regimen. CrossFit Rock Hill has more information about flexibility workouts:

  • Why is flexibility work important? Taking time to stretch and increase flexibility is very important for CrossFit beginners. Stretching allows you to loosen up parts of your body, mainly your muscles. Tight muscles can lead to discomfort while you’re working out. Without stretching, you might not be able to properly complete a routine. Make the most of your workouts by taking time to work on your flexibility.
  • What benefits come with this area of exercise? Flexibility work leads to better endurance and improved exercise performance. Other benefits include the easing of muscle tension, enhanced coordination, and less painful exercise routines.
  • What are some examples of flexibility workouts? Common flexibility maneuvers include calf stretches, shoulder stretches, and hamstring stretches. For exercise newcomers, we recommend joining a gym that includes flexibility work. Our gym makes sure to include this type of activity in our exercise programs, especially for our new members.

Start working on your flexibility by joining CrossFit Rock Hill’s exercise programs today. See how you can get into shape while also having fun!
