We run, bike, swim, row, jump ropes, do body weight movements, and lift weights. Most mainstream gyms and health clubs will program clients a standard workout comprising of isolation movements and extended aerobic sessions. This routine is repetitive, boring, long, and ineffective (as reflected by the extremely high dropout rates at traditional gyms!).
At CrossFit Ballina we use compound, functional movements and short, high intensity sessions interspersed with longer, less intense duration efforts to achieve results. These movements and intensity levels have been scientifically proven to be noticeably more effective at achieving desired fitness results. Sadly, most conventional gyms still embrace the old, much less effective methods of training and many gym goers remain unmotivated and rarely use their memberships.
