We know what you’ve heard.
CrossFit is going to lead to life-long injuries, give you rhabdomyolysis, and force you to take part in some strange ritual to initiate you into the cult that is CrossFit.
Say goodbye to friends and family because once you go CrossFit, you never go back.
Did we capture all of that? Any other myths we missed?
When you don’t understand something, it’s easy to default to the worst possible scenario before taking the time to learn the truth.
And the truth with CrossFit is that you are never going to give it a real, honest try if you continue to let your pre-conceived notions about the sport limit you from getting in the best shape of your life.
Not every person who does CrossFit can bench 350 pounds or squat 250. Those who can are at the top of the ladder when it comes to being fit, and CrossFit is another way for them to hone their skills and work their bodies into the shape they want it to be in.
For everyone else, we can make the workout into something that fits your fitness level in life. Our members range from 18 to 80, so there is no level of fitness we haven’t encountered.
Of course, if you haven’t been to the gym in years, maybe CrossFit isn’t the best way to get back into shape, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek us out. You don’t have to jump in feet first to get the experience of CrossFit.
Some boxes, like ours, run boot camps for members who want to lather up a good sweat, but might be intimidated to throw weights around. Our boot camp focuses on body weight movements that are easy to do for those who are wading back into the waters of fitness, if you will.
You can also schedule a 1-on-1 with a coach to go over your goals for fitness while being completely honest with the coach as to how comfortable you are with trying CrossFit. It’s very intimidating for somebody to try something different, so we want to make you as comfortable as possible when you come through the door for the first time.
Speaking of that front door, it’s always open, even if you’re not a member.
We host many who want to drop in and try a WOD before they commit, or just want to watch and see how it’s done before taking that next step of signing up for a monthly membership.
You shouldn’t have to sign up for something without trying it first. We believe, however, that once you do try it, you’ll want to come back on a regular basis to get in great shape.
So, the next time somebody tries to tell you CrossFit isn’t what they think it is, ask them if they have any idea what it’s all about.
If not, maybe it’s time to try it for yourself.
