Women and CrossFit
We have many women ask what sort of transformation they expect to see after doing CrossFit. Many are concerned about bulking up. CrossFit in conjunction with a drug-free training program will create lean functional mass and decreased body fat. Muscle weighs more than fat and during the beginning phase of a CrossFit program many women will experience an increase in muscle density while losing fat. This results in a slight increase in body weight which usually causes alarm. However no need to worry, over time with consistency, you will start to see a significant drop in body fat, increased lean muscle mass, and a more defined and toned physique.
