IS FUNCTIONAL FITNESS DANGEROUS?
At Roar Fitness 247 and RFX CrossFit our classes are programmed specifically to ensure that you’re safe and having fun the entire time. Our coaches preach safety and technique above all else, and they will work with you to ensure you only do what you feel ready to do. If a coach sees that you are competing for time in disregard for technique you will be stopped. If you continue to show disregard for technique and are seen to be training dangerously you will be removed from the CrossFit box and made to conduct fundamental classes again, before regaining access to the facility.
Wear comfortable workout clothes and sneakers. Bring a water bottle and a small towel. As you progress through classes, you may choose to bring additional items, but that’s all you need to start out.
HAHA, everyone crawls before they walk. Do you think Craig Lowndes or Peter Brock started out on the V8 Supercar tour? They stalled out, bunny hopped and scraped how many curbs when they started? You need to start somewhere, and you will be better tomorrow than you are today, you will know more in an hour than you do now. It’s all about getting started! You might not do it the first time or the first week or the first month! But, it will happen. Its not a competition between you and the person your standing next to, the only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday. We use resistance bands similar to the assisted dip machine on the main floor. They effectively reduce your body weight, so that you can easily perform a pull up and you gradually reduce the size and strength of the band, until you can knock out the holy grail of an unassisted pull-up.
Absolutely not! Our classes are designed to be completely scalable, so you’re able to work at your own speed, your own weights, everything. You do it your way. With our Wodify member management system it is easy to keep track of what weight you are currently using for what exercise. This way you can keep track of your progress and ensure you are always bettering yourself.
