CrossFit is a precise combination of exercise and nutrition that has been proven to increase fitness and health for people of all ages and abilities. CrossFit sessions incorporate techniques such as weightlifting, gymnastics and high intensity interval training (HIIT) for a well-rounded workout.
WHO CAN DO CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is appropriate for absolutely anyone, regardless of age, injuries and fitness levels. From complete beginners to expert athletes, the programme can be completely adapted to you, ensuring you become healthier and fitter safely.
DO I NEED TO BE FIT TO START CROSSFIT?
No! To start CrossFit all you need is a willingness to work hard, a positive attitude and a drive to achieve your fitness goals. The beauty of CrossFit is that the intensity of your workout can be scaled to your own level.
WHAT IS SCALING?
Scaling means to adapt the intensity of your workout to suit you. For example, if you aren’t very strong, an option would be to scale to a lighter weight. Through scaling, everyone is able to enjoy CrossFit at their own level.
WHAT DOES TYPICAL CROSSFIT INVOLVE?
Each session is completely different, meaning you’ll never get bored of CrossFit! However, there is some structure to a session, generally beginning with a warm up and time spent developing techniques, followed by a WOD (Workout Of the Day) and a measured task which consists of varied movements performed at high intensity.
CAN I STILL DO CROSSFIT IF I HAVE PREVIOUS INJURIES?
Yes, you can still do CrossFit if you have previous injuries. At your first class, you will be asked about any injuries or problems in your body before starting the workout. Our coaches will help you find a way to reduce strain to your problem area with a suitable scaling option.
CAN I DO CROSSFIT IF I’M PREGNANT?
When pregnant, you should consult with your doctor before doing any exercise. However, as long as you have been doing CrossFit for at least six months prior to pregnancy, then you should be fine to continue training during your pregnancy. CrossFit workouts can be safe and effective during pregnancy, providing cardio and strength training for a pregnancy-safe workout.
