3 Reasons Why You Should Join a CrossFit Community
Beginner, expert or somewhere in between the benefits of CrossFit can help you reach your ultimate health goals and be one step closer to a “happier you.”
Let’s talk about your goals- do you want to be stronger, healthier, and become the happiest version of “you?” Maybe you’ve been looking in the mirror lately and just don’t recognize yourself anymore. Or maybe you find yourself in an exercise slump and aren’t really sure how to up your game.
If this sounds like you- then you’re in the right place. You’re about to learn why joining a CrossFit community and reaping its benefits can turn your aspirations into reality. And better yet, many of the coaches that run these amazing gyms started right where you are.
They decided it was time for a change, time to step up their game and time to claim a lifestyle of optimal health and fitness. They took a chance on something new and powerful.
Over the last few years, fitness, wellness, and the desire for optimal health has boomed! Maybe it’s because of COVID, maybe it’s because our eyes have opened to the importance of being healthy or maybe it’s simply because we want to live longer. Regardless, creating a healthy lifestyle is essential and CrossFit will be an avenue to get you there.
Look around, have you noticed that CrossFit gyms continue to grow? They are literally popping up everywhere. And that isn’t by mistake. In fact CrossFit, as a brand, has been described as one of the biggest fitness chains in the world. With around 12,000 affiliates and over half being right here in the U.S. The mindset behind CrossFit alone speaks volumes about why so many people are “hitting the box” and making it their exercise regime.
One advantage of being a “CrossFitter” is you get to track your own benchmarks. Which is a huge win as each time you head to the gym or complete the WOD (workout of the day) your progress is visible and keeps pushing you forward. Benchmark tracking keeps you accountable, and is a great reminder that you’re getting stronger and kickin it!
CrossFits, like the one in Coopersburg, CrossFit Threefold, are more than just gyms. They are communities of passionate coaches. Coaches that rock it, nail it and become your ultimate support system during your fitness journey.
At Threefold, the community is about building confidence and creating healthier habits. All of which are held in high regard, especially by the coaches. Take the owner, Kate Carannante for example. Her mission is simple and powerful “helping you be the happiest, healthiest and fittest version of you.”
And don’t worry, you don’t have to be an expert or have any experience when you decide to sign up. Your team of certified coaches are trained to help you every step of the way. They pride themselves on it- it is what they do best. They will always ensure you do your exercises safely, efficiently and confidently.
Achieve your goals-yep ✔
Reach your best self- you got it ✔
Become the happiest and healthiest version of you- oh yeah ✔
So what are those 3 reasons to join- let’s continue:
1. Join Crossfit for the Community
Working out can be difficult but not if you arm yourself with the right tools such as- community and support. Think about it, would you rather workout alone or with a friend? Hopefully that question is not too hard to answer- and hopefully you answered with a friend! I mean who doesn’t want someone next to them, cheering them on and pushing them to the limits right?
When you walk into a CrossFit gym you are immediately welcomed. You become a friend and a workout buddy. Someone will be there making sure you are on track, working out safely, and reaching your highest potential.
It’s all about community. One study in particular found evidence of how beneficial working out with a community of like-minded individuals could be. Let’s start with a stat-those who started an exercise or weight loss program with a friend or colleague were 95% more likely to finish what they started. Doesn’t that speak volumes about how working out with a community of friends inspires and keeps pushing you on?
When you add another human being into the mix, one that genuinely cares about your goals, your success, and your health, you are more likely to lace up, hit the gym and work your butt off!
Another great reason to join, being part of a CrossFit community doesn’t end when your sweat session is over. Just like at CrossFit Threefold, the owners, coaches and members are all part of a family. They have authentic conversations in and out of the gym, hang out together, attend events like CrossFit games and create bonds like no other.
Being part of a gym that revolves around community is not only motivating, but quite frankly, the inspiration you need. Support, encouragement and dedication.
Plain and simple- Crossfit is a community you can count on- join for the community.
2. Join Crossfit for the Coaches
- Inclusive Environment
A CrossFit coach will never hang you out to dry. A CrossFit coach will show you how special, capable and strong you are.
Expertise, integrity and inclusiveness above anything else- that’s a CrossFit team, that’s our family.
A CrossFit coach has been where you are, experienced what you are going through and knows exactly how to get you to where you want to be. Our coaches are trained and filled with knowledge to get you past your turning point and on the road to success. They will dedicate themselves with hard-work, partnership and trust to ignite a fire inside you.
Just like you, our CrossFit coaches made a commitment. A commitment not only to the gym but to you. You will never feel alone, lost or unsure of what’s next. Your coach will become someone you trust, rely on and always be by your side so you can bring it!
Have you ever walked into a gym and felt weak compared to others or unsure of how you will be perceived? Guess what- in a CrossFit gym you will never feel judged- you will always have your coaches’ and other “CrossFitters” utmost respect. You are the reason we are here, you are the reason we’re a community and you are the reason we achieve.
Plain and simple- support you can trust, join for the coaches.
3. Join Crossfit for Its Benefits and Your Health
The fact is we ALL want what’s best for ourselves. You were given only one body. That body should be treated like a temple. Move it, nourish it and it will answer back. It will answer back with strength, sustainability and substance.
Fueling your body is so important for peak physical performance, especially when you’re “hitting the box” hard and crushing your goals. That is why CrossFit also offers nutritional coaching. Your nutritional plan will take the guesswork out of what you should and shouldn’t put into your body. It will help you fuel up and will be designed just for you. There’s no cookie cutter, or fad diet plan here, just simple, sustainable and clean eating fuel.
Your customized diet plan will have you feeling your best, ever. Eating should become a lifestyle, something you can stick to and use long term. That is exactly why CrossFit coaches will guide and teach you how to nourish your body, and make those gains.
Strength- Isn’t that why you’re here? To get stronger, fitter and leaner? Classes offered at CrossFit combine conditioning, strength training and bodyweight training. Together these three methods will help you get in the best shape of your life. You will feel strong, capable and confident.
All workouts can be adjusted not only in weight but also intensity. This way your workout is scaled to your individual experience and level- basically you build strength based on your needs.
Feeling good about this? Absolutely! Just show up, bring your “A” game and see those results take shape.
Another important reason to give CrossFit a try is its sustainability. When you become part of the CrossFit family you are guaranteed not only a program, but a lifestyle and a habit that sticks.
You’ll look forward to the Workout Of The Day (WOD), benchmarks you crush, results you see, and the people that make this community so special.
You need to know that you are capable of overcoming challenges, and you are capable of reaching your goals. But most importantly, know that you are capable of becoming a healthier, stronger and happier version of yourself.
Plain and Simple- a plan that works, join for your health.
Experience what it feels like to conquer what you thought impossible, overcome obstacles you thought were out of reach and crush your fitness goals.
We know you’ll achieve your highest potential because here at CrossFit Threefold we believe that:
"You don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great. A happier and healthier version of you awaits.”
Now get to it and we’ll see you in the gym.
