Frequently Asked Questions
What is CrossFit?
-CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance by performing constantly varied functional movements performed at a relatively high intensity leve. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
What is HIIT?
-HIIT is High Intensity Interval Training. These workouts include movements to teach you to move well, build strength, and get your heart rate high for a short amount of time followed by periods of lower intensity or rest allowing your heart rate to come down again. This style of exercise is great for decreasing body fat, improving cardio-pulmonary function, improving muscle tone, and keeping your calories burning at a higher rate even after the workout is finished!”
