- I haven’t worked out in a really long time.
Will CrossFit be too challenging for me? No! The great thing about CrossFit is that you can scale or modify every workout to fit any level of fitness. I often have people tell me they need to get in shape before they can come do CrossFit. This is simply not true, come do CrossFit to get in shape for CrossFit! We teach you the skills and movements and as you get into better shape you will be able to ramp up your intensity for a better workout. That is the only way to get in better shape for CrossFit.
- I would like to join a class, but I am worried:
-I can’t do any of the movements.
-I’m too old.
-I’m too overweight
The goal is to perform the WOD Rx’d (as prescribed), however this is something you work up to. The weight, number of reps, number of rounds and even movements can and will be scaled to suit your level of fitness and technical ability. You are always challenged, but never out of your depth. We introduce you to mechanics first, and when you can consistently perform correct mechanics we increase the intensity.
- I have an injury; can I still come to a class?
Depending on the severity, absolutely! We will scale the movements as necessary so you can continue to train. Continuing to train will also greatly aid in your recovery. Contact us for more information.
- Do I have to come to every session?
No, and quite often life does not allow for this. However, you should attempt to attend as many sessions as possible, especially in the beginning. The level of results you get is directly connected with the level of time and commitment you give to your fitness goals. A minimum of 3 times a week will yield results fairly quickly. 4+ days and you’re on your way to becoming a ‘firebreather’. We recommend doing what you can and what fits with your goals and expectations. In the world of CrossFit, your effort is directly correlated to your results.
- I’m a woman. Will lifting weights give me “Popeye” arms and a huge neck?
There is a common misconception that lifting weights will give women massive shoulders and huge arms. With CrossFit, you will have better tone and build lean muscle mass, but you won’t look like a body-builder, we promise.
