You are! There are more misconceptions about CrossFit than there is room on this website to list. Come see for yourself, we promise you will love it.
We have a community that likes to have fun and we like helping people reach and exceed their goals. Every class involves a lot of laughs, instruction, and an intense but rewarding workout.
It depends on your goals. No one gets big accidentally and diet plays the largest role in whether you gain weight or lose it. CrossFit will help you lean down and get stronger, but that doesn’t mean you will get bulky.
Of course! All of our coaches are trained and more than capable of providing proper scaling, prehab and rehab for current and past injuries.
The Classes are all 1 hour long and include: A Dynamic Warm-Up, Coach led workout brief (This is where your coach will go over the workout, explain the movements as well as any scaling options, and answer and questions the class has), the actual WOD (Workout of the Day), and cool down/mobility time.
Every ones individual results vary because of a number of factors. Your results depend first and foremost on your commitment to bettering yourself and consistency in the training session, as well as nutrition, but also on gender, age, health histories, genetics, sleep habits, life stress, work and school. Honestly, what we’ve found to be a decent average is that about the 4-month mark is the place where most people start to really see marked results. This is for two main reasons: one, the movements we do here are fairly high skilled and take a good amount of time to master. Two, it takes time to instill good workout AND nutritional habits into your daily life.
In short, NO. The idea/theory that you need to do slow, steady state cardio exercise in order to burn fat is long since disproven. While it does work, it is incredibly inefficient and detrimental to your overall fitness. There tons of studies that prove what a superior advantage anaerobic activity has over the traditional ‘cardio’ model, not just in terms of strength, speed and power output but also the ability to develop cardio capacity or ‘endurance.’ Coincidentally, the factor MOST responsible for fat loss in controlled experiments is absolute power output (how much work can you do in a given amount of time).
Normal workout clothes (t-shirt, shorts, comfy shoes, or no shoes). A towel and water bottle are optional but encouraged.
We’ve all been there…the ‘new kid’ in class! Everyone is always open and friendly to new-comers. We promote a family-like atmosphere of support and camaraderie amongst our members. Everyone remembers what it was like at their first class and we all want to see each other succeed. Most importantly, we will never have you do something that you are uncomfortable with or that is too advanced for your current fitness level.
