FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is CrossFit all about?
CrossFit is a fitness and lifestyle program based on functional movements. Functional movements mimic everyday action (pushing, pulling, climbing, squatting, picking things off the ground, etc.) The CF program emphasizes on the use of variations of functional movements executed at high intensity.
What makes CrossFit different than any other gym?
CrossFit is about variance and adaptation. We “program” our workouts for General Physical Preparedness, or GPP. We don’t have leg days, back- and bi- days, or cardio days. We believe the body is a whole system, and strengthen it as a whole.Our coaches also give you basic education in diet and nutrition. We believe that nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness and know that how we feed our bodies determines how quickly we achieve the results we want. So for you, this means you’re a better runner than the best weightlifter, a better lifter than the best marathoner, and generally physically prepared for anything in your everyday life. Plus you’ll live in a healthy body with a strong, lean physique. The best part is that every workout is lead by a qualified coach and you’re joined by like-minded people who want to be and feel better.
What is the WOD?
WOD is “Workout of the Day.” The WOD will be posted each day on the main page of our website.

Allow us to get you into the best shape of your life.
What can I expect after my first CrossFit class?
You will feel successful and part of a community of athletes, many of whom you did NOT expect to be CrossFitters. You’ll have a better understanding of how classes are run and the method behind what we do. And it’s likely you will have learned new things, be a little bit “sore” and excited to come back for more.
