It is often said, “You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.”
While this statement is true, there is value in maximizing the limited time we do have and making the most of each moment. This is the opportunity that CrossFit provides.
Many people like the idea of starting CrossFit, but have reservations about the time commitment. If this is the case for you, we have great news! CrossFit is fast and effective. There are not many workouts you can do in 45 minutes that are both fun and effective.
If the time commitment is holding you back, consider: what else would you do with that 45 minutes? Or, what are 45 minutes worth of activities you could eliminate from your day to prioritize your health and fitness? Find out what is most important to you and ensure those are the activities you do each day. Would you rather watch an episode of Netflix or feel healthier and happier with a consistent dedication to your health and fitness? Would you rather sleep an extra 45 minutes or gain more energy from your workout?
Investing in your health will actually create more time for you, as a healthy lifestyle is the key to the longevity of your life. Think long-term when it comes to deciding whether you have room in your schedule for regular CrossFit workouts. In just 45 minutes, you will pack in all of the training you need to strengthen your body and reach your health and fitness goals.
Regular workouts will also give you more time each day, despite what you are taking out of it for the workout itself. With regular workouts, you will develop increased discipline, energy, and focus — all components that will allow you to maximize each moment of your day and create the time you need to put your life and your health first.
If you have goals related to health, fitness, or nutrition, now is when you prioritize it. By investing in yourself, you will not only feel accomplished reaching those fitness goals, but you will also be able to improve all areas of your life. Whether you want to be a better student, better leader, or better parent, being the healthiest version of yourself will allow you to be the best version of yourself throughout every aspect of your life. There are many things calling your attention, but the best way to use your time is to actively consider which areas are the most necessary and important for you.
CrossFit Gardendale offers flexible class hours, supportive coaches, and an encouraging community — everything you need to reach your health goals this year. Do not wait to find the time for CrossFit, take just 45 minutes out of your day to improve yourself, to become the person you have always envisioned yourself being.
