FAQ

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that started with military officers, police officers and firefighters where true fitness was essential for survival. It quickly transcended into the primary workout program for martial artists and elite athletes worldwide. The undeniable results achieved via CrossFit have created widespread growth beyond this population to the “average” consumer.

The program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. It’s specialty is not specializing. Military, police, sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. The program can be used for elderly individuals with heart disease to professional athletes preparing for their season. In CrossFit, load and intensity are scaled to meet the demands of the individual; not the program. In a sentence, CrossFit is for everyone!

Am I fit enough to do a WOD?

The simple answer is yes. If you have no prior experience with CrossFit, we start with the basics and help you progress through from the more basic movements to the more technical movements. As you learn and become stronger, the workouts will get progressively more challenging. However, we will always make sure that the workouts are scaled to ensure your safety, but at the same time pushing you to make sure that you are successful.

Can I do CrossFit if I am pregnant?

Yes. If you were fit prior to your pregnancy and your healthcare provider has not placed any restrictions on you, CrossFit workouts can be scaled to allow you to work out in a safe manner throughout your pregnancy.

Can I do CrossFit if I have an injury or physical limitation?

Pre-existing injuries or physical limitations do not necessarily prevent you from doing CrossFit workouts. Please contact us to discuss your injury/limitation and we will see if we can work with you.

Why is CrossFit so expensive?

You know when you buy a nice car, a good pair of shoes or treat yourself to a nice dinner, you view them as an investment in a premium product/service. The same goes for CrossFit, except you are investing in your health, which provides long term benefits. Additionally, unlike the mega-gyms, we keep our class sizes lower so that we can spend the time working with you (before, during, and after class) on form, technique, and your individual goals.
