Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between Boot Camp and CrossFit ?

Do I have to be in shape to start CrossFit?

Absolutely not!!!  Do you wash your car before you take it to the car wash? Our athletes come to CrossFit in all shapes and sizes, and from a variety of backgrounds, fitness levels and ages. Some are self-proclaimed couch potatoes, some get their exercise chasing their grand kids, some are insanely fit first-responders and defence personnel, some are former gym rats looking for a better workout, and others are seasoned athletes whose bodies have taken a beating over the years.

Whatever your fitness level, we'll work with you to customize workouts that are appropriate for you and steadily build up from there. All you need to get started is a willingness to try, and a commitment to follow through. We'll help you with the rest.


I cannot RUN, SQUAT ETC due to .. insert injury here.. can i still do CrossFit ?

Generally the answer is Yes, but odiously you don't do those things that will make it worse.

As long as your doctor says you are ok to exercise you can do CrossFit in some variation. Sometime they will say don't do exercise X or Y , so you don't do that . We will often ask of clarification from your doctor or physiotherapist what movement you should avoid while you are rehabbing, and work in conjunction with their prescription for you .The fact that there is so much variation to pick from in Crossfit means we can find modifications for you that will still give you a great workout  while working to get you fitter an avoid aggravating your current injury.

The Fundamentals/Beginners program help us to identify movements/exercise that may not be suitable for you before you  join the regular classes.

Our coaches have experience modifying workout for people who have started training with a variety of issues , including but not limited to rotators cuff issues, arthritis , obesity, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, broken legs, fused spines,   and we have even worked with both upper and lower body amputees.

Have a chat with one of our coaches and ask what they can do for you or try some personal training, that way the sessions will totally gear toward what  you CAN do.

How intense are classes? They look scary!

I’m already in awesome shape. So why do I have to do Fundamentals  before joining the group classes?

I’ve done CrossFit somewhere else/on my own. Do I still have to take the Fundamentals again?
