The things that I have heard about CrossFit are that it’s very, very difficult, that even in shape people pass out in the routines, and that you throw up a lot and you feel as if you are going to die. ドボーイ

Sometimes, yes. But only sometimes. The CrossFit Program is designed to be used by anyone at any fitness level. There are even teens and kids classes.


CrossFit’s Specialty is not specializing in anything. It is designed to include a wide variety of workouts, improve general fitness, and have a broad application in all walks of life.

Shoes should be the 1st accessory you buy on your CrossFit journey, and believe me it has nothing to do with fashion, fitting in or looking cool.


Running shoes will not work. They are designed for running which means they have flexible softer soles, cushion to absorb shock, and have light fabric on the top, which is not durable enough for CrossFit.

Running shoes also have a higher heel to toe raise, which propels you forward. Great for running, bad while lifting.


  • Solid durable shoe- this is what you want while lifting, a solid sole is stable, distributes weight evenly and won’t move on you while you are under the bar.
  • Not too much cushion, you will be doing agility movements and the cushioning makes your heel, ankle unstable.
  • 靴は耐久性のあるソール、素材、サイドとアッパーにトラクションがあること。
  • ソールは、まだ固体と薄いそれ以外の場合は、つま先にいくつかのフレックスを持つ必要があります。



For an example of what not to wear for CrossFit and why, refer to the ドボーイ Video I quoted at the top of the page.

In the video you can see they are uncomfortable while exercising, the pants are not staying in place, they are doing a lot of adjusting, and they talk about how uncomfortable they are.



It is uncomfortable and inconvenient to have extra skin moving around, and can detract from your focus. You will feel so much more secure with the right clothes.

Compression gear will keep everything in place, if you know what I am saying. This goes for busty ladies as well. It’s just awkward and even uncomfortable to do a box jump without good support up top.

Compression gear can be worn under gym shorts and t-shirts or tanks too, if you don’t like the silhouette that compression wear makes.

I am female, average build, and lifting weights make my wrists hurt and any bar work gives me calluses. I don’t like calluses, they are ugly. So I wear gloves.

I know there are guys out there who say gloves are for wimps- OK, they use worse names than that, but you get the idea.

ボックス – Your CrossFit gym, affectionately known as your Box, due the utilitarian feel and simplicity. Boxes are more bare bones than fancy gyms and do not have complicated weight machines.

スケーリング – this is when a workout is modified to suit a range of fitness levels. One way to scale a push up- as an example is to perform the push up on your knees.
