While CrossFit began as a predominantly male sport, it recently has seen an increase in the number of women. At Break the Mold CrossFit our membership is roughly 85% female. However, we’ve seen an increase in men lately. What are some of the reasons why men choose to workout at Break the Mold?
- The Glory Days
Many of our male members have been active most of their lives. They played sports growing up and might even coach them still today. At Break the Mold, they get to experience a gym that embraces our youth athlets as well as our adults. Through the Steve’s Club program, many of our male members get to see the progress of their athletes that they coach, and find themselves tappping into their former athlete as well. Additionally a lot of our male athletes mentor, coach, and even bring in donations for our Steve’s Club athletes. This fosters our community of inclusiveness and leads towards our goal of having a lasting social impact in West Louisville.
- So Many Options
While males tend to have a lot of fitness optoins, there aren’t many options in West Louisville. That’s where Break the Mold CrossFit comes in. Not only are we located closer than the brand name gyms on Dixie Hwy, we also cater our mission towards a social impact, driving a larger sense of community and fitness.
- The Odds Are Good
It’s no secret if you take a peek at our social media that we notoriously have more female members than male members. Although our male membership is growing, we are still at 85% female and that likely won’t slow down with a new group of women starting our New You Challenge in February.
