CrossFit Is Built On A Commitment To Yourself

No one ever got fit working out twice a month, which is why it’s essential to form a commitment to CrossFit if you want to get the most out of your investment.

When you sign up for a program, whether it is at our box or another, you need to be sure you are prepared to put into CrossFit what the coaches are going to expect out of you. Otherwise, you’re just throwing away a significant chunk of your paycheck to sit and watch your CrossFit membership languish away.

The most successful athletes at Grand Trunk CrossFit are the athletes who show up at least three times per week, ready to push their bodies to the limit for one hour. These athletes understand nothing is going to change if they don’t. We explain this to you not to scare you into avoiding CrossFit, but because we want you to understand what you need to put in to get something out of it.

The reason the cheaper gyms make enough money to stay afloat is because they offer a reduced rate that feels like a minor investment, so you are more apt to let them continue to take ten dollars out of your account every month because it’s just ten dollars.

But what are you gaining by sitting on your couch while a gym takes free money from you? (Nothing. Nothing is the answer.)

It’s better to spend a little bit more money to get moving, than it is to watch your bank account dwindle at a steady drip.

A lot of people in this world will pay more for a quality product. We believe CrossFit is a quality product that is worth your time and money, but only if you are ready to make the commitment.

There are hundreds upon hundreds of success stories you can read about people who took a chance on CrossFit and have seen their investment reap rewards.

Are you ready to commit to CrossFit? When you are, we will be waiting.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your CrossFit Membership

So, you have decided to invest some of your hard-earned money into becoming a more awesome version of yourself, and you went out and joined a local CrossFit box. (We won’t be offended if it wasn’t Grand Trunk CrossFit.)

Congratulations. They say the first step is the hardest, and signing on a dotted line to commit for at least a month is a step in the right direction. But we don’t want your membership to gather dust. In order to get the most out of it, you need to go in knowing exactly how you can be sure you are spending your money wisely.

CrossFit is not easy. We’ve mentioned that before. But after a few months, should you decide to stick to it, you’ll be happy you put some of your paycheck toward a unique brand of fitness that is designed to make you tight in all of the right places.

Focus On Your Form

If you are new to CrossFit, don’t try to do too much right away. The weight will come. It’s more important to ensure you are using the right form for the lifts so you don’t injure yourself, as that would not be a great way to break into CrossFit.

Before each weightlifting session, the coach will explain how to do the movement, going into detail on which part of your body should be helping with the lift. Pay attention and don’t be afraid to go easy on the weight. Nobody is judging you.

Lean On Your Coach 

Not only are the coaches there to explain the WOD, but they are there to make sure your form is proper (see above) and answer any questions you might have about the workout of the day.

Our CrossFit coaches have all been certified at Level One (at least) so they are skilled in the art of making sure each athlete is doing the movements the right way. If you are unsure of how to do something, or want to be sure you understand the movement, do not hesitate to ask a coach. They are there for a reason, so use them.

Be Consistent

CrossFit is more expensive than those other gyms that advertise for $9.99/month. Therefore, you will be more inclined to go to the box more often in order to feel like you are getting your money’s worth. This is a good thing. We want you to spend that money on becoming more fit. Whether you go three times a week or five, try to do your best to carve out a regular schedule.

After all, CrossFit is the best hour you are going to spend all day, so you might as well

Rock Your Swag

Most boxes sell merchandise adorned with their logo for their athletes to buy and proudly wear in the community. We suggest buying a t-shirt, at least to start. Yes, it will cost extra in addition to your monthly fee, but what better way to prove to everyone that, yes, you are a CrossFitter than by rocking a t-shirt?

Plus, most of the t-shirts are designed to perform well during a workout, so it’s one more shirt you’ll have to sweat through.
