- How do I get started?
- What do you mean the workout is only 10 minutes long? How can I get a good workout in that amount of time?
Well, yesterday our workout was only 5 minutes long and tomorrow it may take 30 minutes. At Copper City CrossFit, our workouts are constantly varied. Variance applies to movements, loads, and yes, time domains. The key to our workouts is the intensity and with time and practice, you will learn how to get the most out of a workout, whether it is 5 minutes or 30 minutes. Please note that each class is a one hour session that is full from beginning to end. I.e. each class includes a warm-up, an explanation of the workout, we then perform the workout, and then there is some sort of stretching or mobility to end the class..
- Do I need to get ``in shape`` before starting CrossFit?
No. CrossFit is universally scalable, meaning, no matter an individual’s fitness level, all workouts and movements can be scaled up or down in order to meet the needs of that person.
- I haven't played sports since high school/college. Why should I do CrossFit?
CrossFit training will not only help someone to excel in sport, but also in life. Moving furniture, carrying groceries, picking up your kids and gardening are just a few examples of real life tasks that require some degree of strength and endurance. At Copper City CrossFit, we will teach you to move your body safely, efficiently, and effectively. These skills carry over into all facets of life and sport.
- Am I too old to do CrossFit?
You are never too old to do CrossFit. All the movements we perform at Copper City CrossFit are functional movements, meaning they are “natural” and they imitate movements regularly performed in everyday life. As long as our bodies maintain functionality through performing these movements, we will delay the aging process. In other words, if Grandma has a 200 lb. deadlift, we are not worried about her carrying her groceries into her house or her picking up her five year old grandchild. Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit said it best, stating,”The needs of an Olympic athlete and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.”
