FAQs

Do I have to be “fit” before I try CrossFit?

No.  CrossFit can be modified to accommodate any ability level.  The majority of our athletes are here to lose fat and become fit and healthy.  We work with everyone from elite athletes to those who have never worked out a day in their life, and everything in between.  We scale the weights and intensity to fit each person’s ability.

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program. We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptation response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.

The CrossFit Program was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. Our athletes are trained to perform successfully at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges. This fitness is demanded of military and police personnel, firefighters, and many sports requiring total or complete physical prowess. CrossFit has proven effective in these arenas.  www.crossfit.com
