FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. ACCOUNTABILITY:  Accountability is the KEY to achieving results!  This is the piece that is typically missing from so many other programs, especially if you are trying to go it alone.  Yes, you could team up with a workout partner and that works for a while, however, one partner usually ends up slacking at some point.  In our program, you are accountable to your coach and your community which helps get you through our doors when your mind is giving you all kinds of excuses why you shouldn’t.  You end up coming more and working harder due to this accountability which translates into results!
  2. RESULTS: Our program is focused on getting you the specific health and fitness results you desire.  Period!  We help you define specific goals and then create and implement a plan to help you achieve them measuring your progress every step of the way!
  3. FUN: Our program is different every day and you have other great people to do it with who encourage you to do your best.  We also have many fun events such as Bar BQ’s, Karaoke parties, and participating in events outside our facility together.
  4. HARD WORK: Yes, it IS hard work but that is why it GET’S RESULTS and enhances your life!

ABSOLUTELY NOT!  Most of our members come to us after not having worked out for decades, overweight, with bad backs, shoulders, and knees.  Our mission is to help inspire as many people as we can to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives, which means that the more unhealthy, unhappy and unfulfilled you are when you come to us the MORE we can help you!!  All you need to do is walk through our doors!

FACT: Many more people are injured from doing NOTHING or jogging than from doing CrossFit. Yes, if we train hard injuries are part of training. However, we do everything we can to prevent them. This is why we have coaches in every class watching every athlete. You are much more likely to get injured trying to exercise on your own without an experienced coach than you are with one.

If you are injured our experienced coaches will work with you to get you back to 100% as we have done with many of our athletes, most of whom are injured doing things OTHER than CrossFit. However, you must continue to come and train, albeit at a reduced level to make this happen! DON’T QUIT!

As Mean Joe Green said, “Anyone can play this game healthy!”

No! One of the leading women exercise scientists Dr. Stacy Sims has this to say about getting big and bulky from lifting weights: “By doing power moves and low-rep, high-weight strength training, you enhance the number of fibers recruited for a contraction but don’t really grow the size of your muscles very much. The short of it is that you end up with a stronger, more powerful contraction with less muscle bulk.” – Dr. Stacy T. Sims, Author of ROAR and leading exercise physiologist specializing in women athletes.

Muscle weighs 15% more than fat but takes up less space. This is why people who start our program experience positive body composition changes very quickly but also may be heavier in weight.

DITCH YOUR SCALE! It only causes you stress! Focus on your body composition and how you FEEL! Do you feel stronger? Do you have more energy? Those are the things that are MOST important! Your body has a specific weight it will always try to attain based on your lifestyle and energy levels. While it is definitely not healthy to be overweight you should not obsess about being some arbitrary weight you have in your head that has no justification in reality. The most important thing is if you FEEL BETTER and STRONGER. PERIOD!

Training is no different than life. It has ups and downs. If our progress was continuously linear just based on the time we train we’d all be deadlifting and squatting 100,000 pounds and running the mile in 1 second. Hitting a plateau in training is completely normal. If you were out of shape and have trained correctly and hard you will have great gains early and then it WILL plateau. What you have to always remember is where you came from and what would happen to your progress if you STOPPED training! Please watch the following video for more information on this topic:

To receive the maximum benefit from our training only requires three sessions per week. Depending on your goals, you may wish to add additional sessions to three per week.

We recommend that athletes, who are just getting back into shape, train with us NO MORE than three times per week. After three months of coming an average of three times per week, you can add an additional training day if you wish.

You should allow one day in between sessions as a beginner. The recommended schedule for an advanced athlete is typically three days of training, one day off, two days of training one day off.

WARNING: Our program is very addictive and gets great results fast! You will probably experience great results in a short time period and will start to feel superhuman after training in our program for a short amount of time! Faster than anything you may have experienced before! However, you must understand that the benefits of exercise come from the RECOVERY period after the exercise and not from the exercise itself! The more intense the exercise, the more recovery your body needs. If you do not let your body recover, especially from a higher intensity programs like ours, you will over train, hit a plateau, and risk injury! MORE IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER! TRAIN SMART! No more than times per week at the beginner level and five times as an advanced athlete.

Supplementing your training with us with light walks, jogs, mobility work (e.g. rolling out, stretching, yoga, etc.) on your off days is optimal.

You WILL be very sore from your initial sessions with us, typically the second day after your workout. This is normal. Make sure you pay close attention to the mobility (e.g., rolling out) part of your Foundation sessions and drink lots of water. Taking a cold shower or bath also helps.

The best thing for soreness is movement. After you have one or two rest days after your session which made you sore come to your next session with us! The thought may seem daunting because you are still very sore, however, once you get the blood flowing in the next session with us, your soreness will be less.

The more time you spend on your mobility (e.g., rolling out, cool down exercises, stretching, etc.) after EACH workout the less sore you will be. A good rule of thumb is to spend at least 20 minutes on your mobility after the workout for each hour of an intense workout session.
