You’re about to try something new. You’ve got butterflies, maybe even a little (or a lot) scared. It’s normal.
What makes it really scary is when you’re making the leap from something comfortable. The unknown can make your current situation feel like a nice cozy blanket. Been there…as I’m sure you have.
We deal with this all the time, and that something new is fitness related.
I want to assure you that there is everything to gain and nothing to lose, and put your mind at ease by sharing our answers to some common concerns.
The top 3 concerns commonly associated with starting CrossFit
- Do I have to be fit to start?
No! We hear this one all the time. Rest assured we will meet you where you’re at- even if that’s a complete beginner. This is what we do! We’re the experts, and promise that if you start now you’ll be far better off in 6 months than if you were to go it on your own.
- What’s the environment like?
This is a tricky one. It’s tough to describe, but there’s a good chance that it’s unlike anywhere else in your life right now. Imagine a place where the people want to you succeed so much that they wont let you fail.
Don’t just take our word for it, read some of our Client Stories.
- Will I hurt myself?
From an outsider perspective, what we do looks nuts. We totally get that. We put weights overhead, climb ropes, push sleds, and sweat lots. While there is inherent risk involved in ANY physical activity, our focus at CrossFit Outlaw North is ALWAYS technique before load or intensity. The amount you lift is not nearly as important as how you move. Our coaches are all very knowledgeable and very much on the same page when it comes to this. When you know how to move safely and efficiently you’re actually at much lower risk for injury both in and out of the gym.
At the beginning of this post I said there’s everything to gain and nothing to lose. That’s not entirely true.
The one thing you stand to lose but putting things off is time– perhaps our most precious resource.
