Common Q and A about CrossFit

Q: Is CrossFit for everybody?  
A: Anybody can do CrossFit, but not everybody will do it. It is hard work, and some folks don’t have what it takes to succeed. Your fitness level is irrelevant, but your willpower is what matters. Do you want to be your best? Do you want to change your current level of fitness? How bad do you want it?  
  
Q: Do I need to get in shape before doing CrossFit?  
A: No. You don’t need to do P90x, spin class, lift weights, do more cardio, lose some weight or anything else before doing CrossFit. Our workouts are universally scaleable to all levels and abilities. Aside from that, nothing will prepare you for them. The fastest way to get in shape is to start doing CrossFit and eating right as soon as possible.    
  
Q: Will I get a six pack?  
A: With hard work and proper eating, yes. We will not only help you with your training, but also set you on the right path to eating healthy. The paleo diet and the zone diet, in our opinion, are the best ways to maximize your performance and (for some people) lean out as well.    
  
Q: I have a bad back, bad knees, bad shoulder etc., can I do this?  
A: Yes. All workouts can be scaled to your strengths and limitations. We will strengthen your weak areas, and your physical capabilities will progress quickly. If limited by a serious injury, we can still program workouts based on you physical capabilities. By utilizing the CrossFit model of performing functional movements and learning to use the proper and full range of motions, we're confident we can get you back on to the right path to your pre-injury days.  
  
Q: I want to put on muscle.  Should I do this?  
A: Yes, if you are interested in gaining real functional muscles without artificial enhancements. If you seriously want to put on muscle you need to exercise all muscle groups at varying intensities, reps, and loads. You also need to feed growing muscle the right way, and with the nutritional information we offer, you will be on the right path to attaining your desired fitness goals.    
  
Q: I am a senior, will this be too hard?  
A: There is no such thing as being too old or too young. We will scale the workouts for you and you will progress at your own pace.  Keeping your independence for as long as possible is best accomplished through constantly varied, functional movements, done at high intensity – CrossFit.  

Q: Why are the prices not listed? Are you that expensive?  
A: No we are not that expensive. What is the price for not being sick or injured anymore?  What is the price for being in the best shape of your life? We are not Planet Fitness, so prices are not that cheap. We compete not on price, but only on quality. The quality at HXF is that of an elite sports, strength and conditioning program, though we are much more affordable since we teach in a group setting.  
  
As long as you understand what you are getting, then we will gladly discuss costs. We prefer that you come try it out for free first, and then ask. Then it’s up to you to decide. We don’t want to sit you down in an office and try to get you to sign a contract. If you can’t see the value or don’t want what we are offering, that is fine. Those who are serious about their fitness and ready to make a change will see the value.  
  
Some gyms may omit common modalities such as olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, or even running.  Some use only bodyweight exercises or kettlebells.  There are also many differences in training styles and methods. We show you what to do, teach you how to do it, and explain why you are doing it. You will constantly learn new skills and improve techniques that will help advance your fitness.    
  
Q: How much is your drop-in fee?  
A: $15 and you must have CrossFit experience. Please visit our Drop-In page for  more information about the Drop-In Policy.
