Have a Question....
We Have The Answer
I’m a beginner, is this really for me?We are not looking for a particular type of person or athlete. You don’t even need to be in shape to start with us. We are only looking for those who are willing to learn and put in the work to reaching their goals or reaching past their goals. Our workouts are scalable so as to benefit anyone on any fitness level from grandparents to pro athletes. We will ensure the weights and intensity are adjusted to suit your capabilities. We cater to individuals of age ranging from 16 to 70, from collegiate athletes to those that haven’t trained in a decade.
What type of exercise program is this; weightlifting, cardio, gymnastics, kettlebells?CrossFit looks at every community in the fitness industry and takes the most beneficial and functional movements and incorporates them together into a unique fitness program. Our program is a comprehensive balance of several fitness concepts aimed at “forging elite fitness.” You won’t see bicep curls, leg presses, ellipticals or treadmills. You will see Olympic lifting, running/sprinting, basic gymnastics, kettlebells, jumping and throwing.
What exactly happens during a typical group session?When you come in, a WOD or a workout of the day will be written on the white board. We’ll take you through a warm-up and ensure that you have no questions about the exercise you are going to do. Then, “3 – 2 – 1 – GO!” You work with your group to beat your past times or set personal records. Most of the time, expect complete the work out of the day in 40 minutes or less. Classes usually last about an hour.
Is CrossFit safe?Safety is imperative at our facility. We require supervision (especially for our new members) during any of our group sessions and challenge events to avoid injury at all costs. Our CrossFit-certified coaches are highly trained and are prepared to help you meet your fitness goals in a safe manner. When you’re training at CrossFit Stride, you’re always under the watchful eyes of at least 1 CrossFit Stride coach. Often, you’ll have 2 or more coaches in a class to give you the best Coach-to-Athlete ratio possible.
Will I be able to lose weight?Either is possible. What is certain is your body will lean up. Muscle mass density is much higher than fat and takes up less space. Depending on your fitness goals, we will work with you on your training program and nutrition to help you lose weight properly or gain weight through muscle mass.
I play a sport, will this affect my performance?It will definitely affect your performance, but in a positive way. What often happens when you specialize in one type of activity is you become deficient in other types. CrossFit allows you to specialize in a broader range of activity and movement. It will increase your power production and your overall work capacity allowing you to play stronger for longer. The CrossFit method has proven well with several professional athletes all around the world.
