I am afraid I will get too Big and Bulky?
In order for people to get bigger, especially women, there are two things that you would have to make a concerted effort to do.
One: pick up very heavy weight on a frequent basis. This is not something we do. Yes, we are very much concerned about your strength and we do lift heavy some days. But this is not our main focus.
Two: eat an extremely high calorie diet. For most to gain productive muscle mass takes quite the effort in eating the right foods in a high amount. This is also something that we do not focus on. The majority of the workouts we do provide your muscles with more contractile potential and not hypertrophy (muscle mass).
I have heard you can get hurt doing CrossFit, is this true?
You can injure yourself in any activity, but CrossFit is safer than many activities people perform every day. We like to work with people in 3 stages.
First: mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do movements). One does not come before the other. We always start with Mechanics.
I can’t do CrossFit because I don’t want to aggravate back or neck pain from previous injuries.
Numerous clients of ours have come through the doors with previous injuries or tweaks and found relief from the pain by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. All too often people neglect exercising their low back due to fear of injury. Because of this they end up deconditioned weak, and more susceptible to injury in the future from minor mishaps, which is usually what happens. Taking part in CrossFit will provide you a buffer so that you are less susceptible to these kinds of injuries. The movements and workouts are all completely scalable allowing anyone to take part.
I want to offer CrossFit to my employees. Do you have something for this?
