CrossFit Frequency

But Coach, I do CrossFit 7 days a week and never rest! Why am I not getting better!?

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard this statement, I would be a Billionaire.

But, one needs to understand that the frequency of CrossFit classes you should take can vary depending on your individual fitness level, goals, and recovery capacity. Below is a guide to how frequent you should attend CrossFit classes.

Beginner: If you’re new to CrossFit or exercise in general, starting with 2-3 sessions per week is a good idea. This allows your body to adapt to the intensity and gives you time to recover between workouts.

Intermediate: For individuals with some CrossFit experience and a moderate fitness level, 3-5 sessions per week may be appropriate. Make sure to incorporate rest days or lighter recovery workouts in between intense sessions. 99% of us are in this category.

Advanced: More experienced CrossFit athletes who have built a strong foundation of fitness can handle 5-6 workouts per week or even more, but it’s crucial to listen to your body and prioritize recovery when needed.

Ultimately, the right frequency of CrossFit workouts depends on your goals and how your body responds to training. It’s important to find a balance that allows you to make progress and rest while minimizing the risk of injury and burnout. Consulting with your certified CrossFit coach can also help you create a personalized workout schedule tailored to your specific needs and goals.
