What is cross training? Cross training is doing multiple forms of exercise to reap greater physical benefits than is possible with one type of workout alone. This can be as different as participating in weight lifting, yoga, and swimming, or as basic as incorporating various exercises into one full-body workout, such as jogging, weight lifting, and agility training.
Every type of workout has its benefits, from building strength in your upper arms to increasing flexibility in your hamstrings more flexible to improving endurance. But every type of exercise has its limitations, and routines can become stale and less enjoyable over time.
CrossFit allows you to tailor your regimen to your mood, interests, and goals. It helps fill in the gaps for better overall health and prevents fitness plateaus. Cross trainers are serious about fitness and about maximizing results.
Who benefits from cross training workouts? Everybody. The competitive or casual runner can boost their speed and efficiency, prevent injury and improve balance from strength training for the core and arms. Yoga and Pilates practitioners can boost upper and lower body strength using kettlebells or or a multi-functional pull up bar.
