The beauty of it? You can modify and scale it accordingly. CrossFit training is also known to be an effective workout for losing weight, strength building, agility training, and improving flexibility, while also enhancing aerobic fitness.

Here's a quick look at the CrossFit Workout of the Day (WOTD) which Uncle Sam chose for SportPlus.sg's Cheryl Tay:


3 Rounds of 400m Sandbag Run in the Rain

30m Handstand Walk

20 Pull-ups

10 Double Unders (Skipping Rope)

Sounds brutal? According to Uncle Sam, so long as you keep smiling, you will be able to do it! And if you can't complete it, you can always modify or scale down.


Afterall, CrossFit is designed for universal scalability, so the load and intensity can be scaled to suit an individual's fitness level.
