Is CrossFit Really Worth the Money?


Is CrossFit really worth the money? I can see what riles people up. Paying $15
a class or $150 a month for unlimited classes where you pick up boxes and bags of sand you
usually pay other people to move can seem a rip off. I wonder if it is really worth the money for
the results. CrossFit likes to over-work people, taking
short cuts to get great results in a short period of time but risking muscle death and
torn tendons to get there. No body should be worth tissue damage. Well,
aside from strains and sprains. I’m talking about dialysis because you so
damaged the muscles that the tissue dies. I’ve heard of people getting repetitive stress
injuries from workouts. The risk of that goes up with the number of
repetitions, the shorter time between cycles, and the greater weight you carry. Losing the
ability to use your arms for two weeks is a risk you take lifting that heavy box 200
times. I thought rest days cured that. Ten seconds between each lift might ease the
impact, but one day between workouts that hard is not enough. And they pack in the activities
in CrossFit. Is the program itself over priced? Compared to what you paid for hot yoga classes,
no. That class came with an impeccable view, too.
Please, no jokes about the dog pose. Yoga pants are reason enough to go to yoga
classes, assuming it isn’t for pregnant women or old people. Do you think I could get in that good a shape
in another program? In T25 DVDs are about as good, and you can
pause it to rest whenever you’d like. And you don’t have a drill instructor wannabe
pushing you to the point you pee in your pants. I wouldn’t trust a fitness instructor who
doesn’t care if he breaks new ground by breaking your body. He doesn’t have to go through the
physical therapy or surgery to fix what he broke. And nothing is worth that cost.
