You are able to work smarter with low impact workouts leading you to function better, reduce your risk of injury through the use of a water rowing machine which has little to no impact on your primary joints: ankles, knees, and  shoulders. Many of these can be affected through overuse in other popular boot camp classes.

The rate of injuries for  traditional cross-fit workouts is quite high (74%) and It’s common knowledge that high impact workouts done daily can cause injuries.  Anti cross fit combines high-intensity intervals that are not harsh on your joints but provide challenging and compound movements. Furthermore, they work on posture by including a stretching and myofascial release portion after each workout.
