The Importance of CrossFit for Women

Do you want a body that works better for you throughout the day? Then why not come and try CrossFit?

CrossFit Victus exercises will help you perform everyday activities better and safer, so you’ll be less prone to injury and more efficient in your daily life.

Did you know that women are more prone to muscle strains and injuries than men? Due to hormones and anatomy, women are especially susceptible to knee injuries. Women are also typically busier than men (generally speaking of course but it’s true, sorry guys), and are usually rushing around trying to juggle multiple responsibilities from home and family to work and recreation. Women are constantly moving their bodies in many different ways as they pick up a toddler, carry groceries upstairs, bend over to pick up toys, haul luggage on a business trip, move furniture, throw a netball or reach for that bowl on the top shelf in the cupboard.

CrossFit movements will help you develop your body’s ability to stabilize and generate power from your core to make you stronger. Your core is the key to good balance, stability and posture. Even the most basic activities – from sitting at your desk for hours to bathing and getting dressed – rely on your core. Core stability is the foundation of all basic movements. Did you know that many lower back injuries can be prevented if you have a strong core?

Why Crossfit?

CrossFit involves training the body for the activities you perform in your daily life. The exercises mimic real life activities and are designed to allow you to perform your day to day activities more easily and without injuries. Each exercise focuses on more than one body part – instead of just one muscle – so all of your muscles work together. This is important because all of our muscles depend on each other and they are supposed to work together. By using your muscles together, you will be more efficient and use less energy in your daily activities – so you’ll have more energy for the things you love to do!

The main goal of CrossFit is to get your whole body and all of your muscle groups working together for real life activities.
