General Questions

What Is CrossFit ?

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximising the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.

Do You Need Experience Or Some Minimum Level Of Fitness

The short answer is no. CrossFit is for anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Every workout is scalable to your fitness level and ability. Whether you’re coming back from an injury or new to exercising, our coaches will modify the workout to meet your individual needs. For example, if the weight in the work out is too much we scale the weight back to a comfortable level for you. Or if there is a movement that you are not comfortable with eg; Pull ups, we can either scale back to a ring rows or use an assistant band to help you with the movement.

I Have Or Had An Injury, Can I Still Do CrossFit

Injuries occur in all sports and in everyday life. Sitting at a desk all day will eventually injure you. CrossFit when done correctly will actually help rehabilitate any existing injuries and or body imbalances. We pride ourselves on correcting movement patterns first before adding load. Your posture and mobility will improve and you will actually bullet proof your body against injuries. You will be fitter and stronger and in better shape than ever before.
