In CrossFit, routine is the enemy. This applies to the type of training we do, but not necessarily the frequency that we train. “How many days a week should I be coming?” is a question we get by almost every single new member at Roots. The answer is – as much as you can! You won’t reap all the benefits of CrossFit only coming three times a week. This is a bare minimum.
Our classes are an hour long. All we are asking is that you show up for an hour a day, the days of spending countless hours on the treadmill and elliptical are over! Should you still come if you are sore? YES. Should you still come if you are feeling a little tired? YES. (More on this later) Remember – the workouts are always scalable, and our trainers do a phenomenal job of tailoring the workouts to fit your specific needs for any given day.
We recommend coming 5-6 times per week. Our athletes that come 3x a week or less do not see NEAR the results as our consistent 5+/week members. We program our days/weeks/months so you don’t have to worry about them interfering with each other. We do not follow a traditional “split” like you may have done in the past (chest/tris, back/bis BRO). Rather, we do constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All that means for you is: show up any/every day, we will take care of the rest.
Like anything else, fitness requires commitment and consistency. While 3 days a week is better than 0 or 1 day a week, we guarantee you will see better AND faster results coming 5-6 days a week. Write that down.
