• 1) What is CrossFit?

    CrossFit is elite fitness of everyone; a strength and conditioning program designed to make you really, really fit and it is the most fun you will ever have working out.

  • 2) Do I need experience or some minimum level of fitness?

    No. Our workouts and exercises scale to any level. We’ve had everyone from grandmothers to obese people, and they’ve all been fine. You will too.

  • 3) I have/had an injury. Can I still do CrossFit?

    Many of our members have successfully used CrossFit to rehabilitate from minor injuries. Because people continue to move, work, and play in the real world regardless of injury history, we believe the best route to long-term health is to learn perfect form on functional movements, then to slowly build strength in those movements, rather than to avoid them altogether. Our coaches are always happy to work with you to scale and substitute exercises, to tailor workouts to your abilities. That said, we cannot offer you specific medical advice, and advise that you consult your physician before starting this (or any other) exercise program.
