Personal Training 


- very individualized and focused on the clients specific needs

- you are pushed to failure but not sacrificing technique

- exercises are adapted if you have injuries or are rehabilitating from a surgery etc.

- functional exercises

- it works around your schedule availability

- any fitness level can participate


- cost per month is more than a monthly gym pass

- depending if your trainer floats from gym to gym or has their own location, scheduling and availability can be difficult

Crossfit Training


- the cost per month is significantly less

- typically done in groups which keeps cost down and some clients prefer groups to keep them motivated

- you are pushed beyond your own perceived limits

- functional exercises


- typically trainers aren't university educated, a weekend crossfit course is what most have, and don't know how to adapt exercises for those with injuries etc.

- clients are asked to train to failure and beyond technical failure, this leads to many injuries that become chronic

- some of the exercises are not good to do at all and certainly not repetitively

- the majority of people shouldn't do crossfit because of previous injuries or are at a fitness level that demands less aggressive training styles
