Clients have come to us with previous injuries or tweaks and found relief from the pain by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. All too often people neglect exercising their lower backs due to fear of injury. Because of this they end up deconditioned, weak, and more susceptible to injury. Taking part in CrossFit will provide you a buffer so that you are less susceptible to these kinds of injuries. The movements and workouts are all completely scalable allowing anyone to take part.
Our main goal is pretty simple: getting our athletes stronger! Whether your goal is weight-loss or muscle gain, competing in the games or looking good in a bikini, you need to get stronger. For those worried that getting stronger means you’ll get too big and bulky, please see the next question and be reassured. Our approach to training is methodical. Strength programming is laid out so that athletes know what to expect in terms of the strength portion of the class. If it’s Thursday night on week 3, you know you should get some rest because tomorrow is back squat PR day! Another approach that we have is to address common weaknesses the entire gym may share- things like overhead squats, olympic lifting, or basic technique with bodyweight movements. Our WoD programming is kept secret to address that beloved “prepare for the unexpected” part of CrossFit. Our programming philosophy remains constant and simple: get you stronger and get you healthier!
In order for people to get bigger, especially women, there are two things that you would have to make a concerted effort to do. One: pick up very heavy weight multiple times a day. And two: eat an extremely high calorie diet. For most, gaining muscle mass takes quite the effort in eating the right foods in high amounts. If you are looking to gain muscle, we will tailor our programming and nutrition to meet that goal. If you are looking to lean out and build LEAN muscle instead, the same is true. The beauty in programming is that you can meet different goals with simple tweaks. You pick where you want to be, we will take care of the how.
Yes. More and more research shows that shorter duration/higher intensity workouts yield higher benefits/results. Basically, it boils down to hard work. But the truth is, the longer the effort the lower our intensity. If you run 10 miles your intensity (power output) will be lower than if you run multiple 400 meter sprints. CrossFit does go beyond 30 min on occasion, but the majority of our workouts are shorter in duration. If you have a shorter workout, you can work harder by nature which can lend to a better response, especially combined with the movements we do. No matter who you are or what workouts you do, without hard work you will not receive results.
You can injure yourself doing anything. Injuries in CrossFit boil down to the coach’s ability to find a postural issue or a fatigued client and intervene. All of our coaches are highly trained in this area. Our Head Coach specializes in corrective exercise and emphasizes proper form before anything else. We like to work with people in 3 stages. First: mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do the movements). One does not come before the other. We always start with Mechanics.
This is a common misconception. The most elite athlete can come into the gym and find a workout challenging. You will never be “fit” enough. That’s why we are here and offer scaling options for each individual so that you can thrive in each workout on a personal level. Fitness is a lifelong journey, we are never really “there”.
The reality is with the quality of instruction you get from our trainers, it is personal training at a fraction of the cost. Our rates are actually less expensive than any other group led workout programs in our local area.
CrossFit is as hard as you make it. We encourage people to push to the limits of their own tolerances but only you can make the most out of your own workouts.
You could just follow our blog, but you would not get the quality of teaching from our certified trainers. Most people are not taught how to move correctly and don’t know how to teach themselves. You are automatically making yourself more susceptible to injury and leveling off in your gains by trying to do things on your own. It is also infinitely more fun when you are encouraged and held accountable by a group of your peers. Plus you won’t have someone cheering you on in your basement or local gym, like you have at CrossFit!
