10 crossfit gyms in Singapore to get leaner at, regardless of your fitness level

When we first thought of CrossFit, our mind immediately jumped to images of hardcore exercises with rope climbing, flipping heavy tires, and lifting bulky weights. Sure sounds intimidating, doesn’t it?

While this intense workout regime may sound alarming, it’s definitely a rewarding one, which is probably why CrossFit gyms are among some of the most popular workout spots in Singapore.

CrossFit training: What is it?

crossfit-gyms-singapore-what-is-crossfit

CrossFit combines functional movements from various sports and exercises, including cardiovascular endurance, weight training, and gymnastics all into one.

Think barbell deadlifts, cycling on an Airdyne, and a medley of high-intensity exercises of jump rope, burpees, and box jumps.

Focusing heavily on intensity, CrossFit burns those calories and builds your strength at a faster rate than most other workouts. Other benefits include increased metabolism, and better cardio health and mobility thanks to the fast-paced exercises.

But if you think these sound tough – don’t be daunted yet. Unlike other workouts, which require a certain level of fitness to be able to execute a movement, CrossFit is accessible to all as the exercises can be scaled up or down depending on your fitness level.

You can switch up the load and intensity to suit your personal needs, taking into account your age, experience, or other physical limitations.
