5 CrossFit Myths You Shouldn’t Believe.
Any person. Any age. Any size.
I need to get in shape before I start CrossFit.
CrossFit is for EVERYONE. Each workout is designed to provide a quality fitness experience for newbie and experienced CrossFitters alike. Our coaching staff is able to work with clients of all fitness levels from the first class through preparing clients for competition or other fitness endeavors.
I can’t CrossFit because of my (fill in the blank) injury.
The coaches at CrossFit Caveman are CrossFit Level 1 Trainers who are experienced in working with a diverse group of clients. Part of what we do is work with clients who have unique medical situations and find a program that will work for them.
I’m Too Busy for CrossFit.
At CrossFit Caveman we offer over 40 class times weekly to accommodate almost any schedule. We have one of the most robust schedules in the area. If we don’t offer a class time that works for you let us know and we will see what we can do.
CrossFit Will Make Me Gain Weight + Get Bulky.
A CrossFit centered fitness program will promote muscle growth but unless an athlete is taking a large amount of supplements they will not get bulky. Most women will become toned with more definition in their muscles and most men will gain some muscle mass and reduce overall body fat. Muscle weighs more than fat, that is a fact. As you gain more muscle and reduce fat there may be instances when the weight on the scale will go up, but your overall fitness level and body shape will change for the better.
I will NEVER be able to do a rope climb (or any other movement)
CrossFit is in general a broad, inclusive fitness program that has universal scalability. That means that a three year old, a 23 year old, and a 93 year old can do the same workout. The differences between the workouts will not be the movements, it will be the weight of the movements. Afraid there is something in our programming you truly can’t do? We have substitute movements that will work the same muscle set as the primary movements we post in our WODs.
