I’ve never lifted weights; How do I know CrossFit is right for me?
CrossFit is universal to all ages and fitness levels. All workouts and movements are scalable up or down based on the individuals need. Check out this inspirational video out: CrossFit: Be Young, Feel Young, Redefine YOU
I don’t want to get big. Will lifting weights make me bulky?
No. Lifting weights will make you stronger, toner, and leaner. You will place fat with lean muscle tissue. Isolation exercises, over-eating, and drugs are what create big and bulky physiques in both men and women. We do not practice or recommend any of them.
I am not that intense or hardcore. I don’t think I could do it.
We hear this ALL the time, and it’s a valid concern as CrossFit can be intimidating to newcomers. We put a major emphasis on form and technique to ensure safety. Only after form is proper do we ramp up intensity. Intensity is relative and everyone has different fitness goals. The key is to scale to the individuals needs. That is our job. A young college athlete may squat 4 plates while a soccer mom can use an empty bar or no weight at all.

What is the Basic Program?
New clients start here. The basic program focuses on body weight movements, fundamental weight-lifting, and metabolic conditioning. The goal of our basic program is to develop a solid base of fitness, flexibility, and education for CrossFit. Eventually, clients may wish to upgrade to Elite classes. Do not mistake basic for easy! Our basic program focuses on skills and is a well-rounded entry-level CrossFit program. Some clients may prefer the Basic program as it may align with their individual fitness goals. Basic classes focus on learning skills at lighter weights than those used in the Elite program. There is more coaching, technique, and fundamental focus. It is Still CrossFit, just Basic. WOD’s are scaled Up or Down more openly to the individuals needs than the Elite program.
