CrossFit originated as a training program for already active people. People with physical jobs, athletes, former athletes, military, etc. It is important for us to continue to play sports and be physical outside of CrossFit Class.
Studies show that adults that continue to “play” are more curious, creative, and have a greater sense of joyful engagement daily. “Playing” isn’t just for children; it is super beneficial for adults to “play” too.
“Play” physiologically helps reduce stress in adults by down-regulating the nervous system and removing the “fight or flight” state we can get stuck in through chronic daily stress.
