X-Factor CrossFit and Alano Club of Portland are proud to present: Recovery CrossFit – A FREE CrossFit program for the recovery community. Join us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a great workout led by professional CrossFit coaches from 2-3PM at X-Factor’s incredible studio in NW Portland.
In recent years, the addiction treatment and recovery communities have started incorporating CrossFit training into addiction recovery programs as a way to divide a client’s focus between two sets of goals that are mutually beneficial: getting sober and getting fit. Addiction recovery isn’t easy — no surprise there. Neither is CrossFit. Both disciplines challenge a person to push themselves beyond their comfort zone to achieve their goals. As it turns out, they are the perfect partners to achieving success in both areas. Using CrossFit as a complementary discipline to addiction recovery works well because it requires focus and provides a positive distraction from the stresses inherent to the recovery process. Through physical training participants will learn to be fighters and not to give up, which is a powerful message that carries over to the more emotional or psychological aspects of recovery.
