FAQ

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

What is a WOD?
It is the “Workout of the Day”. We select and post a workout for each day. This workout could be a “named” workout, developed and described on the national site, or it could be a workout we have developed here. It is all part of the “constant variation” philosophy of CrossFit.

What if I can’t do the workout as posted?
Not all athletes can do ALL CrossFit workouts as RX’d (prescribed). A big part of CrossFit is the concept of “scaling”. That is, substituting in modifications to movements to make them more or less difficult based on the individual’s level of fitness and training. For example, many workouts include the pull-up. Many people cannot do a dead hang (non-kipping) pull-up. The pull-up can be scaled by substituting a kipping pull-up, jumping pull-up, pull-up with resistance bands, a bar pull-down, etc. In this way, you can begin with less challenging exercises and progressively work your way up to more advanced movements.

 

Should I be in fairly good shape before starting CrossFit? Should I get in shape before doing CrossFit?
No, CrossFit is designed for athletes of ALL levels — from professional athletes, to desk jockeys, to homemakers, to retirees. We scale load and intensity for all our clients based on their individual fitness level and ability. Going to a traditional health club first will just delay the benefits you will receive from a CrossFit regimen.

Will CrossFit make me bulky? I don’t want to get big.
For the ladies. This is my favorite. You must read this article Click Here

How many times do you recommend coming in for beginners?
We recommend three times per week to get the benefits that we advocate. Two times would be minimum since after 3 days you will start to lose ground and your fitness might suffer. However, listen to your body, recovery is just as important if not more important than the workout itself. Ask a coach.
