What shoes to use for Crossfit?

Aside from running, most people I know who are into fitness are doing HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) or Crossfit. HIIT is mainly a cardiovascular exercise while Crossfit is a combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength development.  These types of exercises provide short but intense workouts. Maybe these are just trends just like those diet fads, but they are popular these days especially to health buffs because it works.

Another reason why most people are shifting to Crossfit is because it only needs 30 minutes to 1 hour of workout unlike going to the gym which will take you more than hour to finish. Gym memberships are expensive too, with Crossfit, some routines can be done on your own without those expensive machines.

C-lium Lose More, Live More Week 4: CrossFit Work-out

Week 4 of my C-Lium Lose More, Live More journey is the most memorable and action-packed of all. This week, C-Lium Ambassadors met up at the Philippine Army Gym for the CrossFit workout. CrossFit is new to me, so I visited their website first for me to know what to expect. And whoa, I got scared at first, at the same time, curious about CrossFit.

CrossFit workouts are constantly varied movements executed at high intensity, thus every workout is different and you will rarely do the same thing twice. The workouts themselves are completely scalable, which means that a new participant and an elite athlete can complete the same workout with changes in load and intensity. CrossFit workouts will deliver phenomenal fitness in and of themselves or as a compliment to your sport-specific training regime.

Basically, CrossFit is not your ordinary workout, but it is for ordinary people looking for extraordinary results.
