The classic CrossFit prescription is once per training day ‘three days on, one day off, two days on, one day off’. Some train two on, one off repeatedly and some every other day. Ultimately, it depends on how much time you have to commit and what your travel schedule is.
Typically we would have someone who has not done CrossFit before starting on a 13 session per month membership (that means at least 17-18 days of rest in there too). You can always adjust your membership as you see fit.
If you are highly driven, want to get better at CrossFit, but struggle for the time you’ll for sure need to employ some patience. Definitely don’t be too hard on yourself. Out of 168 hours in a week, if you come to Shapemsmiths for two of those hours progress will be very steady.
Ultimately, we believe strongly that CrossFit should be a lifestyle choice. Depending on proximity to the gym, it’s relatively easy to fit a 60min session into your day, high five a few folks, smile away and then crack back on with your day feeling like you are bad-ass.
