CrossFit: The Pros and Cons of Working Out by Yourself

CrossFit: The Pros and Cons of Working Out by Yourself

Since I now work full time, I’ve been working out a lot by myself. There are pros and cons to this.

Pros to Working out Alone:

  • Can workout on my schedule
  • Don’t have to wait on others
  • Under no pressure to finish within a certain time
  • Can do my moves however I want (e.g. strict versus kipping)
  • Do my own programming
  • Substitute moves or entire workouts to accommodate injury
  • Focus on what I need to focus on
  • Play my music (Hey! It’s the little things!)

Cons to Working Out Alone:

  • No push from others to go your hardest
  • Can be boring at times
  • At times it’s harder to get the motivation to even workout
  • Workout is not quite so mindless
  • Loss of community
