CrossFit burns about 800 calories per hour. Depending on your fitness level, this means it can burn between 2400 – 3800 calories in a 30 minute session! And that’s if you can do a one repetition max! The four-minute mile is a common misconception – the average running time to reach an 800-calorie burn is 12 minutes. CrossFit lasts longer and burns more!

But do we really need 1500 extra calories each and every day? Is this even realistic? Many people who workout frequently consider themselves “hard gainers”. Under this belief they feel that because they exercise hard and eat little or no food that they automatically become fat boned, weak, broody (all stemming from poor body image), ect… Basically many try lifting heavy weights multiple times per week without any muscle building protein supplements, yet still think all their hard work has not paid off because they can’t see any changes in their appearance despite physical improvement occurring inside goals like adding 20 lb (86 kg) of mass (7% increase) or losing 24 lbs (10 kg).
