Will I get injured doing CrossFit?
You can become injured doing any activity, but CrossFit is more safe than many activities that people perform every day. We take into consideration each client’s level of fitness in order to determine their work capacity. We begin by teaching each CrossFitter proper mechanics before anything else. We never expect our clients to do anything that they are not capable of doing safely.
Will I get big and bulky doing CrossFit?
No. In order to increase large quantities of muscle mass you would have to train at high intensity and high volume for 6 to 7 days a week for multiple months and even years. In CrossFit we discourage hypertrophic (muscle-growing) training because we encourage all-around fitness. CrossFit will make your body stronger, leaner, and more efficient.
Do I need to be in shape before I come to class?
Absolutely not!!! You will become the definition of fit here! CrossFit is designed to be challenging for people of all fitness levels and exercise backgrounds. From the moment you walk through our door, our coaches are focused on helping you reach your personal goals, despite initial levels of fitness.
Can anyone do CrossFit?
Yes! Big, small, short, tall, fit, unfit, athlete, or nonathlete. Anyone can do this program as long as you are determined to reach your goals! Our coaches have an enormous amount of experience that will help you succeed. Each person does CrossFit for his/her own reason. We have some that are in it for the competition, some to lose weight, others just for the need to do something different. Whatever the reason, we are here to help and encourage you along the way!
