I’ve never lifted weights; How do I know CrossFit is right for me?

CrossFit is universal to all ages and fitness levels.  All workouts and movements are scalable up or down based on the individuals need.  Check out this inspirational video out: CrossFit: Be Young, Feel Young, Redefine YOU

I don’t want to get big. Will lifting weights make me bulky?

No. Lifting weights will make you stronger, toner, and leaner. You will place fat with lean muscle tissue. Isolation exercises, over-eating, and drugs are what create big and bulky physiques in both men and women. We do not practice or recommend any of them.

I am not that intense or hardcore. I don’t think I could do it.

We hear this ALL the time, and it’s a valid concern as CrossFit can be intimidating to newcomers.  We put a major emphasis on form and technique to ensure safety.  Only after form is proper do we ramp up intensity. Intensity is relative and everyone has different fitness goals.  The key is to scale to the individuals needs. That is our job.  A young college athlete may squat 4 plates while a soccer mom can use an empty bar or no weight at all.
