I am coming to Flagstaff and would love to drop-in. Can I and how much does it cost?
Do you provide childcare
I can’t do CrossFit because I don’t want to aggravate back or neck pain from previous injuries.
What are your goals when programming for the gym?
Can I get a good workout in under 30 minutes?
I am afraid I will get too big and bulky?
I have heard you can get hurt doing CrossFit, is this true?
CrossFit is safe when done correctly. In our Foundations course we teach you proper mechanics for these functional movements, and continue to review them in the regular group setting, as safety is a priority for us. We first teach you proper mechanics, we drill them consistently then we add the intensity.
Remember, any activity can result in injury. CrossFit is safer than most activities because we incorporate movements your body is MEANT to do. When was the last time you saw someone outside of the gym doing a bicep curl? Never, this movement does nothing for you in real life. Now when was the last time you saw someone deadlift in real life? Pretty recently I bet.
Do I have to be in shape before I can start CrossFit?
I feel it is too expensive, is this true?
The workouts you post are too hard, I could never do that.
What is the difference between doing the workouts on my own or doing them at CrossFit Flagstaff?
You are missing the warm-up, cool down, and fun time. We focus on warm-up, skills and cool-down daily. We also work a lot on mobility and stretching for injury prevention.
A big part of CrossFit is community, family, and camaraderie. Having a good base of positive people around you is the best environment to train in. Not only will you be pushed harder because of the support from everyone, but you will have a great time doing it. Take a look at your chain gym. When you walk in, you will see a bunch of people with Ipods. Everyone is secluded and not interacting with anyone else. This leads to boring workouts that have no intensity (which means ineffective) and eventually pushes people to quit exercising. It is a sad sight to see. If you go to any CrossFit gym, you will see that the energy is high, everyone is encouraging, and everyone really cares about each other.
