What is CrossFit and how are classes in a new sports centre of Limassol, Camp Geraklion organized?
CrossFit vs Fitness
We usually think that the training equipment, which fitness centres use widely are efficient and safe. But any experienced sportsman will confirm that working out with ‘genuine’ equipment – bells, barbells and dumbbells – though require increased carefulness, are much more efficient, they work a greater number of muscles, while loading becomes natural.
Machines can be bad for joints, which sometimes work in an unusual position. Also, there is an urgent task of combining active cardio training and effective muscle-building exercises. All these tasks are successfully solved by system CrossFit.
If walking from one machine to another in a traditional fitness club is too boring for you, you will dive in a completely different atmosphere while working out at CrossFit.
Camp Geraklion organizes group workouts, in which people with a different fitness level can participate.
Exercises are the same for everyone, intensity and weights are different. The friendly atmosphere and mutual support is the same. An hour of a workout passes so quickly you will not notice it.
The CrossFit system of workouts
The basis of CrossFit workouts are natural movements, which a man makes in his everyday life: sitting downs, jumps, running, press ups, pull ups, weight lifting, etc. Special attention here is paid to the technique of doing the exercises: the body should not suffer, but enjoy a correct loading.
The aim of CrossFit workouts is not only to change your appearance, but also a healthier and a renewed body, a change in the quality of life.
The basis of working out is a pyramid: first you make the cardio-vascular system and metabolism healthier, later you are taught the skills of body control your body and external weights management. In the end the use all these skills in life, including when doing other types of sports.
A workout is usually built in the following way: warming up and work to improve flexibility and agility followed by training exercise technique and the power part of the training, the so called WOD, Work out of the day, exercises are done to a circular or an interval system with a minimal rest.
Another name of the work out of the day is MetCon, metabolic conditioning, which perfectly reflects the essence of circular and interval workouts. Metabolic conditioning means a higher metabolism in a body, the basis of all processes that are happening in a human body: from a more active process of fat burning and the establishment of a healthy endocrine profile to feeling good and a higher brain productivity.
At the end of the workout a cooling down is performed for a gradual decrease of a heartbeat as well as stretching and muscle relaxation.
