Better with friends
Hey all, one of the best things about CrossFit is that it isn't an individual experience. When you show up for a workout, you're participating with a group who are all pursuing the same thing - higher levels of fitness. This group effort is motivating, inspiring, and encouraging.
When you work out alongside others, it is proven that you not only work harder, but it that it feels less hard than if you were to do the same effort by yourself. That fact alone points to the idea that humans respond well to a group setting.
At Vic City, we program more partner and team workouts than most gyms. This is on purpose as we want to not only have that boost effect from working with one to three people directly, but also want to create stronger connections between people. There's nothing like working hard and suffering a bit along the way with another member right there with you.
So, as always, enjoy the process, and when an opportunity comes up for a team or partner workout, don't be afraid to team up with someone you don't normally train with. They could be your next great motivator!
