The Benefits of Starting CrossFit

One of the knocks against CrossFit is that it’s not cheap.

While it is certainly more expensive than some of the gyms that advertise you can join for a mere one dollar a day, we are firm believers in the mantra that you get what you pay for.

And with CrossFit, you get way more than just a workout.

When we started Grand Trunk CrossFit a little more than two years ago, we did so because we wanted an opportunity to open a workout facility where those who were already fit would, ahem, fit right in, while those who were just starting out had a place where they could start.

But back to the pricing.

We know any decision that involves money is one that needs to be made with the utmost care, so we want to show you how investing your money in CrossFit, whether at Grand Trunk or not, can be one of the best investments you make.

Here are a few of the benefits you’ll reap if you start CrossFit:


Every time you show up for a class, the coaches and your fellow athletes are going to encourage you to do your best, whether that’s vocal encouragement or another athlete holding down your feet so you can finish those sit-ups.

Everyone wants everybody else to succeed, and there’s something infectious about a group of your peers pushing you to do what you thought was impossible.

That’s accountability.

Trained Coaches

Every single one of our coaches is certified. That means they’ve gone through rigorous training and are skilled in the movements that make up CrossFit.

This also means you’re not going to be stuck on an island.

As your body learns how to do movements that seem foreign, our coaches are there to ensure you are doing the movement the right way with the right form.

Increasing weight comes later.

If you’re not moving the right way, you risk seriously injuring yourself, so we take that part of fitness seriously.

Sense of Community

Not only do we work out together, but we also play together.

When we’re not doing WODs, some folks have been known to frequent the local establishments in and around New Hudson, and we throw Halloween and Christmas parties at the box to celebrate our members and their families.

We opened Grand Trunk with the goal of turning it into a community, and we think we’re on our way to accomplishing that goal.

It’s Spicy

Every workout is different and every workout is difficult.

One day it might be 100 thrusters, followed by sled pulls the next.

You’re not going to get bored, and you certainly won’t lose interest in what we’re doing here.

Part of the allure of this particular type of workout is that it challenges you and works parts of your body you never knew existed.

You might walk outside short of breath after a heavy workout, but you’ll know you got your money’s worth.
