CrossFit FAQ

“Hi Mark,
Thanks again for the work out!  It was absolutely the most intense 20 minute workout I’ve pushed through since college days.  Definitely not too easy, probably just right for most.  I’d encourage new-comers …”

A: This is getting old! Stop making excuses! If you want to get in shape, you need to just get started.

Q: Do I need to get in shape before I start CrossFit?

A: No. You do CrossFit in order to get in shape.  A lot of people start in a really deconditioned state. Just come as you are, and get started.

Q: I’m applying to be a cop. Will CrossFit help me pass the PAT?
