With CrossFit comes a lot of common misconceptions. You have either seen the sport on TV, YouTube, or heard some people talk about how “intense” their training is.
Let’s look at a few of these:
I’m embarrassed to struggle around others.
At CFML we have a wide range of age, fitness, and ability. Our community celebrates your accomplishments as much as the next members; each step in your journey is just as important as the next. We understand that everyone’s ability varies, however, the individual’s effort is what matters most. Our LAB101 Foundations class will show you how friendly and accepting our community is – most of them started in a similar situation.
I’m not fit enough to do CrossFit – I can’t even do one pull up!
Sometimes, people forget that CrossFit is a fitness program to help you gain the ability to do cool things like pull ups. What you don’t see is all of the coaching and scaling that goes with these workouts. At CFML we have several versions of each daily workout that scale to different levels of fitness.
Our coaches are experts at helping clients modify movements so that they can do the daily workouts and make progress toward new abilities. So, if you feel like you can’t do some of the movements you see in the workouts, don’t sweat it! Our LAB101 Foundations course will teach you all the different ways we can meet you at your level and help you grow to the next.
CrossFit is dangerous!
It turns out that most things are dangerous if done improperly, like, crossing the street. If you don’t know what you are doing, you are going to get hurt. At CFML, we strive to embody excellence. That means, maintaining safety while fostering growth by teaching our athletes the best practices and meeting them at their level. In our LAB101 Foundations course we talk about the risks with movement and what you can do to minimize them.
It seems very expensive.
At first glance, it can seem that membership prices are high when compared to some of your more traditional gyms. This is because we are VERY different. Not only does CFML have some of the best equipment in town; climbing ropes, gymnastics stall bars and rings, Strongman yokes and sleds, we also have daily programming for you to follow, with variations to meet you at your level. All of our classes have expert coaches on the floor to improve your movements and make sure you are safe. This alone would be well over $70 an hour at any standard globo gym. Our memberships come with much more, you will learn about it in the 101 course, but you can also check out our membership page for more information.
The biggest challenges reap the most fulfilling rewards.
Our purpose is to help you move well, enjoy the process, and hit your goals. The LAB101 program is your first step. Start Training Today!Sign Up For Your LAB101 Here!
