Now, before I jump into this, I should preface that I myself am not a CrossFitter. I don’t even know if its proper to say CrossFitter. Anyways, I am a Figure girl through and through, but…I have tried crossfit before. Back in my day it was called conditioning with my college team, but now it’s a bit more sophisticated. I’ve actually even gone down the road and stepped into a “box” for a session. And yes, I will be trying it again.

With that said, my love for all things fitness doesn’t allow me to ignore some of the greatness that comes from CrossFit and I know most of you can’t ignore it either. So here are the 9 reasons why everyone should go ahead and let themselves fall in love with CrossFit.

Really Hot People

And when I say hot, I mean it. Yes, I am most definitely looking with a female eye on this, but I think its a safe bet to say that the women are pretty smoking as well. Let me say though, a room full of these people can cause some blood circulation. Have you seen these men? They’re so…manly. Like, brawny man, sort of manly. I may hate the fact that CrossFitters call their gym a box, but it is certainly a box full of yummy.

It’s Legit Work

People from all walks of fitness life want to hate on CrossFit for a lot of reasons – don’t drink the kool-aid! – but there is no denying that these people put in some serious work. You want to know the last time a normal person thought, “Man, you know what would be awesome today? To do wall balls till my knees break and then burpees till I vomit!”? Yeah, the answer is never. The sessions of dripping sweat weight lifting and cardio is simply not for everyone. But for those that do it, may I tip my Nike cap to you.

Crossfit = Trendy

There’s also no denying that CrossFit has become a pretty trendy form of exercise. Not discrediting it at all, but it seemed once one box popped up, a million more leapt into existence as well. While people may want to groan and begrudge “yet another trendy workout”, we should all be pretty stoked that the hardcore fitness industry is being flooded with people. Fit people should want to help others become fit too, whether its just with leading by example or actively engaging others. So even if some frail little chick wondered into a box only because her friends wanted to try, chances are that same chick is now overhead squatting like a beast. No one can hate on that.
