Most of you have probably heard of “Cross Fit.” Maybe you’ve seen the Cross Fit games on ESPN or maybe you even belong to a Cross Fit gym.
I'm not trying to bash any particular gym or training style. But Cross Fit is a perfect example of one of the biggest problems I see in the fitness industry.
Cross Fit, as well as most independent personal trainers, considers itself a “Jack of All Trades.”
Here is a paragraph taken off the Cross Fit website:
“The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.”
They have one workout plan that they use for everyone, regardless of age, sex, fitness level, or desired outcome.
You’re training for a Mixed Martial Arts fight? Great, here’s your workout.
You’re a 60 something looking to stay fit so you can keep up with your grand kids? No problem, you can do the same workout as the MMA guy.
You’re a 30 something busy dad looking to put some muscle on your arms and shoulders? You can work out with Grandma.
"My fitness programs aren’t for everyone."
If you want to improve your 40 yard dash time don’t come to me. Go see Kenni down at D1 Sports Training. He’s a great coach and an even better guy.
My programs won’t help you prepare for a bodybuilding contest, Navy Seal training, or an Ironman Triathlon.
But if you’re looking to lose weight, feel younger, and look great at the beach but don’t have 10 hours per week to spend in the gym, I’m your guy.
