Nope! One of the common misconceptions of CrossFit is that it’s only for elite level athletes. In reality, the CrossFit community is made up of competitive athletes, former athletes, working professionals, and people who prior to CrossFit, had never even set foot in a gym before!
The idea of CrossFit is that it’s constantly varied exercise, so don’t worry about ever getting bored! You will learn nine foundational functional movements of CrossFit, such as squats, pushing, and pulling. In classes we use kettlebells, barbells, ropes, gymnastic movements, Olympic lifts, bands, rings, rowers, medicine balls, dumbbells, and more.
We aren’t stopping you, and neither should an injury! The beauty about CrossFit is that the exercises and movements can be easily scaled and adjusted to individual needs. We have had many members come through the doors with previous injuries that have found relief from pain by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. Often times people stop exercising a previously injured area due to fear of re-injury or pain, and because of this, they end up deconditioned, weak, and even MORE susceptible to injury in the future! Let our coaches help you gain back your pre-injury strength and confidence!
WOD stands for Workout of the Day.
Unless you are increasing your daily caloric intake to astronomical amounts, lifting extremely heavy weights multiple times a day, and putting extra substances into your body that aren’t already there, no you will not look like the Incredible Hulk from doing CrossFit. Now will you end up looking more toned? Yeah, we’d bet on it!
Absolutely! We’d love to have you! Swing by on Saturday mornings at 10:30am for our FREE Introductory class!
