Do I have to get in shape before I start?
This is a common misconception that most people have before coming in. CrossFit is designed to get you in shape no matter what your fitness level is. Would you get in running shape prior to start training for a 5k…or course not. Rest assured everyone in the class also had a first day!
I have heard you can get hurt doing CrossFit, is this true?
You can injure yourself in any activity, but CrossFit is safer than many activities people perform every day. We like to work with people in 3 stages. First: mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do the movements). One does not come before the other. We always start with Mechanics.
I feel it is too expensive, is this true?
CrossFit is often difficult to compare to other fitness programs. We offer a variety of classes and options as well as some of the best coaches. The reality is with the quality of instruction you get from our coaches; it is personal training at a fraction of the cost.
I have heard CrossFit is really hard, is this true?
CrossFit is as hard as you make it. Intensity is relative to each individual. We ask you to work hard within you tolerances but no one will ever ask you to do something that your body cannot handle.
What happens during your group classes?
Each class lasts around 1 hour. The workout of the day will be posted on the whiteboard. A coach will take you through the entire workout which includes a warm-up, mobility work, strength or skill work and typically some metabolic conditioning.
Can I start CrossFit if I still have issues from previous injuries?
We understand your concern. Our introductory workout provides an opportunity to discuss any injuries and limitations. Our coaches are able to scale all workouts based on these discussions and determine if additional personal training is needed.
