Crossfit Can Fix Stress & Anxiety
Many people have anxiety and stress. And most college students will say that that are stressed or identify with having anxiety. There are many things that can solve stress and anxiety like medications, oils, songs, creams, naps, screaming, ice cream, Jesus, cuddling, etc ect. BUT what if I told you a good stress relief and an escape from anxiety is Crossfit.
Yes, you read that correctly. Crossfit allows people to escape into their workout and focus on goals. Stress goes out the window, and anxiety leaves when you realize that everyone in the room is just an nervous and worried of failure…BUT everyone has their own personal goals and they’re only focused on themselves. You are able to go into a zone and only focus on YOU.
Most coaches at Crossfit Fort Lauderdale tell new comers that they must leave their pride and ‘coolness’ at the door. Doing duck walks, monkey crawls, or screaming because you can’t quit is just some of the things that happen and pride cannot be present.
Crossfit is a core strength and conditioning program and include the following:
- Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance
Crossfit is made for all ages and all body types. The misconception is that you must be ‘fit’ going not into the program. That is wrong, your coach will modify your skills and adjust to your limits.
As far as anxiety and stress goes, when you walk into the building you automatically forget your stresses of the week. You mentally get ready to push yourself and prove to yourself you can do anything your coach throws at you that day. Crossfit pushes skill yes, but it pushes you mentally overall.
So why Crossfit and not a gym membership? Allow me to set up a scenario to explain why Crossfit is the better option.
At a gym, people usually go workout by themselves. Some have a set routine, others have an idea of what muscles they want to work that day, but most people go to the gym to do cardio, do some abs, or lift some weights until they get tired. Then they get home.
At Crossfit Fort Lauderdal, you never work out alone. People are always there encourage you, or even better doing it with you. When you arrive, a set schedule and agenda is given, and you work 110% til you finish. If you get tired, quitting is NEVER an option. You push and you fight and the people around you encourage you to keep going. Crossfit Fort Lauderdale trains your mind and muscles to not stop until you’re finished and you’re not quitting till you’re finished.
Focusing on the goal and completing your workout makes your mind set on that alone. Once your at the box, your stress and anxiety are able to disappear.
