What is CrossFit?
The CrossFit Journal article, What Is Fitness, covers this in depth.
If you’re pressed for time or just like short answers, I’d say CrossFit is all about increasing work capacity across broad time and modal domains. Basically improving fitness in all areas- strength, endurance, agility, stamina- for any time duration- short to long.
What is a WOD?
Workout Of the Day.
Is CrossFit right for me?
But I have injury. I’m slow. I’ve had a lot of birthdays. I’m not very strong. Is CF really right for me?
Well, since you probably didn’t click on the link above, I’ll wait… The beauty of CF training is that we can modify based on individual needs. We can train around injury. We can get you faster. Old doesn’t get you off the hook- check out these guys. Strong is relative, we can make you stronger- by a lot.
I’ve never touched a barbell before. I saw the CF Games on ESPN3 and women were throwing crazy amounts of weight overhead. Are you going to make me do that?
Olympic weightlifting movements like the clean & jerk along with the snatch are important in developing strength, speed and raw power. These technical movements will be covered in detail in your Elements Class before you do it in a group class. We cover all the barbell movements in Elements so you’ll be comfortable heading into your workout. Your coach will always be there to help you with form and mechanics in every class.
What days are you guys open?
Our current group training schedule is located HERE.
How many days a week can I train?
You’ll have the option of training with us 2-3 days a week. Our main training days are Mon/Tue/Thur. The Friday class is a bit more advanced and requires proficiency with CF movements before you may attend this class.
Do I need to come to the same class every time?
Yes. Our classes are built around ability to have the right coach to member ratio (as well as equipment to member ratio). By being consistent in your group class we’ve found that it forges great friendship, support and allows you to “stay in the groove.”
