Why does CrossFit seem expensive?2018-04-19T08:05:07+00:00

When you purchase a CrossFit membership, you are purchasing a well-designed program and hands-on coaching. CrossFit classes range from $8-$12 per class for our most popular options. You need to decide how important your health and fitness is compared to your daily coffee fix ($4.00/day), your daily energy drink fix ($3-9/day) or eating out at least once a week. We are confident that after a few weeks the results you will achieve will become something you can’t live without.

Am I too old? Am I too out of shape?2018-04-19T08:03:04+00:00

NO! Sure, the workout will be challenging, but that is the point of CrossFit. Since every workout is infinitely scalable it can be made to suit the skill level of virtually any individual. CrossFit has been made to suit the needs of kids, housewives, people who have never lifted a weight and the elite athlete.

What would you say to people who are nervous about a strenuous workout or about being coached?2018-04-19T08:02:15+00:00

If you’re not used to a strenuous workout, that’s perfectly fine. The trainers have a way of pushing you appropriately and backing off. Some people aren’t used to having a lot of stress on their body, and that’s okay. This is the kind of training that will let you progress in strength and work capacity.
