Is CrossFit for athletes only?
How does CrossFit improve my athletic performance?
CrossFit is perfect for athletes. Our goal is to make you a complete athlete by targeting all 10 general physical skills: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, speed, power, coordination, accuracy, agility and balance. Most traditional training methods only target a few of those skills.
The most important part of CrossFit for athletes is that we use functional movements, Olympic lifts, and gymnastics to propel you to the next level.
CrossFit will also improve your mental toughness. Our workouts will push you mentally every time, which gives you an advantage over non-CrossFitters. CrossFit is known as the “sport of fitness.” Each training session will feel like a competition; which carries over into your sport. Being able to perform while you hit that mental wall and when fatigue sets in can be trained. Learn how to eat right, get stronger, more explosive, move faster, increase flexibility, and increase mental toughness to become a complete Athlete!
Will I get bulky doing CrossFit?
Also, testosterone is required for a person to develop large muscles. Women have 1/10 the testosterone as men which makes it impossible to develop huge muscles naturally. The huge and buff women you see in body building magazines are taking testosterone injections, eating a diet geared towards “bulking”, and working very differently then we do here at CrossFit Resurgens. Have no fear of getting bulky, I promise you it won’t happen; just google search CrossFit Women and take a look.
CrossFit will actually give women the look they are after. Our program will help you burn fat and increase lean muscle mass. This results in a lean and “toned” body much like a dancer, and not like a bodybuilder.
I can't do CrossFit because I have back problems and/or knee problems.
CrossFit can actually be used as rehab for injuries. Many people have come to us, unable to Squat (get yourself up from a seated position), Deadlift (picking up your groceries), Press (putting something up on a shelf) CrossFit teaches you how to move properly and exercise with correct mechanics, which in turn helps you regain functional capacity.
If you cannot Squat, Deadlift, Press you may need to start considering if independent living is safe for you.
Is CrossFit safe? I heard you can get injured doing CrossFit, is this true?
Remember, any activity can result in injury. CrossFit is safer than most activities because we incorporate movements your body is MEANT to do. When was the last time you saw someone outside of the gym doing a bicep curl? Never, this movement does nothing for you in real life. Now when was the last time you saw someone deadlift in real life? Pretty recently I bet.
What is difference between doing the workouts on my own or doing them at CrossFit Resurgens?
You are missing the warm-up, cool down, and fun time. We focus on warm-up, skills and cool-down daily. We also work a lot on mobility and stretching for injury prevention.
A big part of CrossFit is community, family, and camaraderie. Having a good base of positive people around you is the best environment to train in. Not only will you be pushed harder because of the support from everyone, but you will have a great time doing it. Take a look at your chain gym. When you walk in, you will see a bunch of people with Ipods. Everyone is secluded and not interacting with anyone else. This leads to boring workouts that have no intensity (which means ineffective) and eventually pushes people to quit exercising. It is a sad sight to see. If you go to any CrossFit gym, you will see that the energy is high, everyone is encouraging, and everyone really cares about each other.
What make CrossFit different that other gyms?
Our coaches also give you basic education in diet and nutrition. We believe that nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness and know that how we feed our bodies determines how quickly we achieve the results we want.
So for you, this means you’re a better runner than the best weightlifter, a better lifter than the best marathoner, and generally physically prepared for anything in your everyday life. Plus you’ll live in a healthy body with a strong, lean physique.
The best part is that every workout is lead by a qualified coach and you’re joined by like-minded people who want to be and feel better.
What's the drop in policy for out of town guests?
Just come in and we’ll take good care of you. Our drop in fee is $20. Please arrive 10 minutes before class to complete your waiver and meet the coach. That’s it! Be sure to let your coach know your level of experience with CrossFit-style training, if you have any limitations or are still at a beginner level.
