Is CrossFit Dangerous?
"CrossFit is dangerous." How many of us have heard this from a well-meaning friend or family? Here is the research. Now you can speak with real science to your friends and family.
Come to the gym, even if you're sore or injured!
We've all been there. We've decided to push it a little, either in the gym, on the slopes, on the field, on the pitch, on the trail, or on the road.
We push it to test our physical limits. We push it to mental limits. We push it because we like to work hard. Then, something happens. Should we come to the gym when we're sore or injured? YES! We can scale, modify, and adapt any movement to accommodate your particular situation.
Remember, your progress and health is built on this progression:
MECHANICS - learning how to move well - scaling, modifying and adapting movement to allow for good technique
CONSISTENCY - practicing moving well - scaling, modifying and adapting movement to allow for good technique in each and every class
INTENSITY - moving well quickly or under load - scaling, modifying, and adapting movement to enable good technique during a workout
At our gym we aim to find the minimum effective dose of training and give plenty of time to practice. Do take you notice? Share with us in the comments how you view training and practice. Are they they same? Are they different? Do you value them both equally? Your coaches want to hear from you!
