What Kind of Workout Can I Expect in CrossFit?

Ask anybody who has been doing CrossFit for a while, and they will probably tell you that one of their favorite things about the CrossFit workout is that the workouts are intense—but they are pretty short. CrossFitters are in great shape, thanks to WODs that consist of a combination of sprints, gymnastics, plyometrics, and Olympic weightlifting. Deadlifts, squats, snatches, cleans, overhead presses—they are all designed to provide participants with better fitness and less body fat in as few as 10 weeks.

The camaraderie among CrossFitters is second to none, and it is just one more reason to love CrossFit workouts. At CrossFit Gold Rush, we pride ourselves on making sure our “box” is warm and welcoming to newbies as well as veteran athletes. Plus, working out with a group of other fitness enthusiasts will go a long way in keeping you focused and on track. And a little friendly competition among CrossFitters never hurt anyone!
