Q: What does WOD mean?
“Workout of the Day”. Often pronounced “wod.”
Q: What if I can’t do some of the exercises listed?
Your trainer will assist you with substituting certain workouts and work closely with you to build up the strength, agility, endurance, etc to perform the full exercise.
Q: This looks hard-core. Don’t I need to be in better shape before I start this?
You’re right, CrossFit is hard-core, but you don’t need to be in great shape to get started. In fact, CrossFit is the best way to get in great shape, fast.
Q: What does rx’d mean?
“As Prescribed”, which means they did not substitute any of the exercises listed in the WOD.
Q: Where are all the shiny machines, treadmills, TVs, and mirrors?
We are not a health spa. We want you concentrating on improving your fitness, not on the gossip channel. We don’t have mirrors because we throw things around and mirrors can break. If you truly need a mirror, there’s one in the restroom. Machines… well, you are bringing the most advanced machine ever designed through the door with you. Plus, we believe in functional movements and most machines isolate a particular muscle and do nothing to improve functional fitness. Treadmills? All that planet out there and you want to run in place?
