Q: What should I bring my first day?
A: Bring workout clothes, tennis shoes, water, and an open mind. Leave your ego at the door.
Q: What is the difference between CrossFit and a regular gym?
A: CrossFit is designed to be measured, observable fitness to the individual.
CrossFit provides programming that helps firefighters, medics, military, homemakers, etc. through "constantly varied functional movements at high intensity" (Greg Glassman, CrossFit Journal) that will in turn help those in each occupation throughout their daily life skills. CrossFit is a class setting with a trainer to provide one-on-one coaching to help you along the way. Last is the accountability. We will do everything we can to encourage you and to help keep you focused and looking forward to your next class.
Q: Should I change my diet?
A: The answer is - Not when you're just starting out. Your body will adjust to the new workout regimen so don't be concerned about that right away. We will help with your nutrition plan once you've completed at least 4 weeks of workouts.
Q: How often should I work out:
A: Starting out you will need to visit the gym at least 4 days each week. We will help you with balancing your workout schedule when you start. Also, a 5th day each week could be a "recovery" day when you would use no weights; Just a time to keep your body moving and help to decrease soreness.
Q: Am I in shape enough to do CrossFit?
A: Yes, regardless of your current fitness level we will work with you to find the right starting point for you. From couch potato to advanced we can custom tailor a workout that is just right.
Q: What is my goal?
A: Find your starting point, put in the work and watch as you achieve results. Is this going to happen overnight? No, not at all. It's going to take a BIG heart and LOTS of motivation and patience. It will also require being a good listener and following the steps that have been put forth by your trainer.
Q: Will I be sore?
A: Yes, you will be sore. The level of soreness is determined by the level of activity that you have been exposed to. Don't let it scare you -- just keep moving, drink plenty of water, and come back to the gym. Many things can be done at the gym to help you work through your soreness.
