Concrete Body CrossFit F.A.Q.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that uses constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. The goal of the program is to increase an athlete’s abilities across a broad spectrum of general qualities, including strength, cardiovascular endurance, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, and coordination. Our specialty is not specializing. We aim to produce an athlete who can do everything, from running a 5k to doing pull-ups to lifting & throwing a heavy object. Because of this, CrossFit is the preferred physical fitness program for many military, law enforcement, and fire departments.
I’ve heard CrossFit is intense. Is it right for me?
CrossFit workouts can be as intense as you want them to be. They are universally scalable and can be done by any person regardless of experience, from elite athletes to sedentary people. You can progress at your own pace and we can adjust and scale the exercises according to your ability and physical fitness.
Can I still do CrossFit if I’ve had prior injuries?
In the Essentials Class we will screen you for injury history and we will perform a movement assessment. Based on the results, we will advise which exercises should be restricted based on your injury history and current movement capabilities. Adjustments, modifications, or substitutions to contraindicated exercises will be made so you can still participate in the workouts!
Will CrossFit help me lose weight?
The key to losing fat is to consume less calories than you are burning. CrossFit workouts will burn a tremendous amount of calories. Also you will strengthen your muscle tissue which will increase your metabolic rate. Pair this with a good diet and yes, you will get leaner.
