I had the honour of being asked to present to @uksasailing Sports Development students today who are currently focusing on barriers to participation – particularly focusing on encouraging women into more male dominated sports.
I believe that @crossfit is helping to breakdown some of the barriers to women participating in strength-based training (research has found barriers to include a fear of becoming ‘bulky’ or putting on too much muscle, and free weight sections of gyms viewed as male spaces). CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning programme which, by definition, involves ‘constantly varied, high intensity functional movement’ – a key element of which is weightlifting.
So how is CrossFit breaking down the barriers? 🤔
🔸A focus on performance over image (its very rare that you would find a mirror in a CrossFit gym)
🔸It’s ‘infinitely scalable’ – every workout can be adjusted so that anyone can do a version of it, this approach allows the fittest people, and first-timers to train side-by-side.
🔸Unlike most sport competitions, the CrossFit Games Open provides anyone the opportunity to compete directly with the best athletes in the world increasing its accessibility
🔸During the annual CrossFit competition (the Games) men and women complete the same workouts, receive equal amount of coverage, and receive equal airtime🙌🏻
When I coach CrossFit, I tailor workouts to individuals and their ability and to ensure that they are moving safely – whether they are male, or female is irrelevant.
Lifting weights makes me feel empowered. I lift weights to become stronger and fitter than I am, rather than to look a certain way.
I was really happy to see that in @womenshealthuk latest naked survey results, when women were asked ‘What are your body goals?’ – 86% stated to get stronger! Times are changing! 💪
