With proper coaching, and a true understanding of one’s limits, CrossFit is as safe (if not safer) than any other form of fitness training. If people at your current gym are saying this, consider the source – they don’t want you to leave, and they’ll plant fear to further their gains. ANYTHING you do in life can injure you if you don’t do it correctly, or haven’t taken into consideration your level of fitness, flexibility or health. Runner’s get shin splints, tennis players get tennis elbows, strength trainers get strains, basketball players get sprained ankles, couch potatoes get obesity, high blood pressure and coronaries. (If you’re spending too much time on the couch right now, that’s hurting you, too!)
At Freakin CrossFit we will instill Technique BEFORE Intensity. We will keep you safe by having a watchful eye on you during your entire WOD. By increasing your strength and flexibility, we will actually make it harder for you to get hurt! CrossFit done properly, is both safe and effective.
