It’s a tradition of mine to post how much I spent on CrossFit for the year:
CrossFit gym memberships: $1440
CrossFit competitions: approximately $1000
Runs: approximately $300
New wallballs: approximately $150
25-lb weights: approximately $60
Massages: approximately $1000
Orange Theory membership: $695 (I’ve moved to a punch card)
CrossFit clothes: approximately $300
No Bull Shoes: $120
Total is: $6815. Self-care led the pack this year. When you are a masters CrossFit athlete, self-care is crucial in order to avoid injury and keep moving.
This may seem like a lot (it does so to me), but it’s truly the only thing that keeps me sane. Some people see a psyhologist; I just beat the crap out of my body. Does the same thing probably for about the same cost.
Every year, it has become a tradition of mine to list out how much I spent on CrossFit. This is more out of curiosity than anything else because to me health, wellness, and fitness have no price.
THE REAL COST OF CROSSFIT
GHD machine from Rogue Fitness: $695.00
CrossFit Competitions: approximately $1000 (this includes those for my daughter as well)
CrossFit clothes: $500 (clothes for my kids as well)
CrossFit Membership: $370 (for me and my daughter)
Orange Theory Membership: $725 (took half the year off due to injury)
Two 15 pound plates: $75
Muscle Activation: $500 for package deal
Urgent Care for injuries: $200
Nutrition package: $450
Private CrossFit Lessons: $400
Sum total in 2019 is: $5645. This actually is not bad compared to last year when I outfitted almost my entire home gym. I just bought a GHD machine this year, which completes it for the most part.
CrossFit is my passion and makes me happy in this world. Truthfully, I don’t care how much it costs me. It’s totally worth every cent for what it gives me in terms of self-confidence, health, and a feeling of accomplishment in this world.
Like all hobbies, there’s usually a cost involved to participate. Some hobbies are more expensive than others, and the level of expense can vary, depending on how involved you are or how much you want to spend.
This year, I’ve spent a TON on CrossFit. I did an update 6 months ago HERE. Here’s the cost since then:
I spent a ton this year on my home CrossFit gym, which is CrossFit equipment that will last me a lifetime. Still, hobbies are expensive. Luckily, I really only have CrossFit, and luckily, I got a new job to pay for all of this.
It’s worth it — to have a passion that keeps you in shape, happy about yourself, relieves stress, and is healthy is actually priceless. I thought I spent a lot more than seven thousand dollars on CrossFit.
