7 Reasons Why Starting CrossFit Should be Your New Year’s Resolution

The holiday season is coming and you will probably have had all the food and family you can handle!

As we head into the New Year you may also be brainstorming ideas for improving your health, fitness and overall feeling better this year. If you are stumped – we have the answer for you and you’ve already guessed it! CROSSFIT! CrossFit is a fun, challenging way to learn more about yourself to improve your health while gaining new friends along this journey.

These are 7 reasons why starting CrossFit should be your New Year’s resolution!


We all want results and we want them now! The bad news is that you’re not going to lose a bunch of pounds quick. On the other hand, you will get results FAST! A new athlete can expect to see and feel the positive effects of CrossFit training within just a few weeks. By February, just in time for your Valentine, you will have shed some fat, gained some lean muscle, increased your confidence, and improved your self image.


Loud music, motivating people, and constantly varied CrossFit workouts make each trip to the 7K Box an invigorating and exciting experience. Our two biggest priorities as 7K Coaches are –

1) Did you guys have a good workout?

2) Was it fun?

Our 7K athletes are constantly learning new and different CrossFit exercises from the squat to the handstand push up. At 7K CrossFit we always make sure it’s a good time. Hard work needs the balance of a good time with smiles, fist bumps and friends. We recently had an 80’s party workout!


Not all 7K CrossFit Coaches are created equal. We have made sure that our 7K Coaches are the best they can be. A good coach will provide you with all the expertise you need in fitness, weightlifting, gymnastics, running, etc – for each day and every day. Having a trained eye to teach and supervise these exercises is invaluable. Our coaches will make sure that you have all the tools and knowledge you need to achieve your fitness and health goals!


Personal training can cost you up to $100/hr. 7K CrossFit training provides that same focused, in depth coaching for a fraction of the cost, without the awkwardness of a one-on-one personal trainer watching you like you are paint drying. Our 7K Essentials Program is designed to on-ramp new 7K CrossFitters to what we do each day to get your feet wet so you’re not a fish out of the water when you start.


With CrossFit routines, you get more than a daily great workout for yourself, you get a community of athletes and friends. The 7K CrossFit Community will provide you with fitness motivation, food recipes, emotional support, and everything else you could possibly need to build a healthy life. The members here at 7K will be the first to tell you that the gym has built friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime. It’s a tribe that comes together to do what is right for us as individuals, but at the same time building up those around us.


CrossFit isn’t a 90 day workout plan or a diet to shed a few pounds. It’s a lifestyle that is sustainable for the rest of your life. We know that statement is a bit abstract, but hear us out… Greg Glassman (founder of CrossFit) once said, “The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.”

The movements in today’s workouts were equally effective for athletes trying to go to the CrossFit Games or simply push off the nursing home. No matter the weight or movement variation used, everyone was picking something up off the ground, getting off the floor from a lunge position, and pressing weight overhead.


Here’s your chance to start something new and fresh in January, 2020 for your fitness and health here in Big Bear. Are you burned-out with your same workout routine, especially when it doesn’t produce the results you want? Or are you not currently exercising and don’t know where to start? Maybe you want to get fit for something or everything like sports, outdoor activities, back backing, playing with your kids or even your grandkids, laborious work, etc… you get the idea.

Our certified CrossFit Coach lead classes are core strengthening priority workouts that are constantly varied and scaled to each athlete – with a perfect blend of moving your body, moving external weight and cardiovascular tasks for an all inclusive fitness training to be more capable and sustaining in life.
