CrossFit is... INTENSITY
I’M NOT THAT FIT OR EXPERIENCED. IS CROSSFIT FOR ME?
The only difference between the training needs of an elite athlete and an ‘average joe’ is weight, volume, and speed. What does that mean? Essentially it means that all the movements we do in CrossFit are universal in their ability to improve performance. Making an adjustment in a workout for a beginner (something we call ‘scaling’ a workout) means reducing the total reps or rounds, reducing the distance, eliminating the clock, reducing the weight, and/or reducing the complexity of a movement. This is something we do all the time and we’re really good at it. It's a fine balance of pushing you and hooking you into loving it by making it fun while you get fitter. The way we know to do that is we get to know you as an athlete. Because we care. A lot.
