I want to start Crossfit, but…

So, it’s February, how are those New Year’s Resolutions coming along?

If you’re like most people, you probably made a fitness related resolution, and that’s a great thing. Seriously, hat’s off to you for realizing that you need to be fit. The truth is that everybody needs to be fit, that your body is designed to be fit, and when you are fit, every other aspect of your life is better. At the same time, when you’re not fit, everything else starts to suffer. Yes, everything else.

Usually at this point, things go one of two ways. First, you went to the gym like 4 times, and then it snowed, you got sore, the Super Bowl was on, or it was cold or busy or any number of other reasons to not make it to the gym came up.  Either way, your freshly laminated membership card is sitting in the box at the front desk of the gym that every single lafitnessplanetfitnessgoldsgym manager loves. That’s the box full of people who signed up, paid their dues and never came back.  Their whole business model is based on taking an amount of money from you that is not quite enough for you to be bothered with jumping through the hoops necessary to cancel it, but not so much that it makes you feel compelled to actually come in and actually use the stuff.

The second way most fitness based new year’s resolutions go is that you have the will power to get to the gym, and you do. But you’re doing 1) the same thing you did in high school, 2) the thing you read about in the muscle magazine you bought before Christmas or 3) whatever somebody else at the gym is doing.  It’s usually about now that you’re starting to realize that whatever it is you’re doing isn’t really working anymore.  It isn’t for lack of trying, or for lack of discipline or motivation. It’s because what most people do at most gyms in the world simply will not work for very long, no matter how disciplined you are.

At the very least, most people want to be better, look better, feel better, have more energy, and get through their day without feeling sick or overwhelmed. Not only that, most people know that by getting in better shape those things will take care of themselves. The problem isn’t in the knowing what, it is in the knowing how.


The good news is that Crossfit Lancaster is the answer to both what to do, and how to do it.  All of our athletes (you are an athlete if you’re here, regardless of how “athletic” you may feel) are here to get better. All the Coaches are here to help you be better.  You can define better any way that you want to, and becoming a part of this community will make you that.

But that is just the start! Beyond that, if you want to be better at a specific sport or activity, at Olympic Weightlifting, or at Crossfit as a sport, then we have the Coaching, programming and equipment to get  you there.

So the question really is, now that your resolutions have either run out of steam is, “What are you waiting for?”

There is absolutely nothing to be afraid of, and nothing to be nervous about.  You will not be the first person who walks though our door for the first time a bit terrified and maybe even a bit embarrassed at their current condition.  Don’t let that stop you from coming!  You don’t have to be “in shape” to start crossfit, you start in the shape you are in right now and build from there, just like every other member of our community did.  More importantly, those people who have come before you, all the coaches, and those you walk though the door with, will be there every step of the way. You’re going to be just fine.

So, make the decision now to be a part of the best thing that could ever happen to you!
