F.A.Q.

1. Is CrossFit for everybody?

Everyone can do CrossFit, but not everybody will do it. It’s hard work and a lot of folks don’t have what it takes to succeed. Your fitness level is irrelevant, your willpower – that’s what matters. Do you want to change? Do you want to be your BEST? How bad do you want it?

2. The workouts look too hard, can I do it?

Yes. All the workouts can be modified to fit your level of fitness.

Let’s take Angie for example:

Reps Activity
100 Pull-Ups
100 Push-Ups
100 Sit-Ups
100 Squats

For Time

There’s very few individuals who can do it on their very first day (or first few months).

So it can become:

Reps Activity
50 Jumping Pull-Ups
50 Push-Ups
50 Sit-Ups
50 Squats

For Time

Still too hard and you can’t jump because you have knee pain? Let’s scale it even more:

Reps Activity
25 Ring Rows
25 Incline Push-Ups
25 Sit-Ups
25 Squats (limited range of motion)

For Time

The goal is to improve fitness and quality of life. Everyone gets a workout that fits their needs/abilities. Simple and beautiful!

3. I’m a stay at home mother of 2, can I CrossFit?

Yes. You will find yourself stronger, more confident, and more energetic within the first few training sessions. You won’t put on any bulk and will noticeably trim down and your muscles will get a lot more attractive (usually people call that word “tone” yet we strive to stay away from that word 😉 . You are welcome to bring your kids with you. They can play around, hang out and watch.

4. I have bad back, bad kness, can I still CrossFit?

Yes. All workouts will be scaled to your fitness level and limitations.

Unless you were in an accident, those injuries resulted from a weakness from some place else. We will strengthen that weak area and you will move forward quickly.

5. Do I have to get in shape first to try CrossFit?

No. You don’t need to do P90X, spin classes, boot-camp, more cardio, get stronger, lose some weight, or anything else. The beauty of CrossFit is that it’s scaleable to all levels and abilities.

6. I’m not competitive, will I like CrossFit?

That depends on many factors. Not everyone at CFK competes with others. Some are just trying to do their best and some are just trying to finish the workout. You will always be challenged, but you will always have fun. You will never be bored, that’s for sure.

7. I’m a senior, will CrossFit be too hard?

Check out this article called CrossFit Gramma. There is no such thing as too young or too old. Just be sure that the trainers are qualified and know what they’re doing. The programming is scaled to you. You need to learn and practice all the foundation movements at your pace. Not too easy but not out of reach either. You should progress forward just like anybody else, maybe at a different rate, but still always forward.
