Frequently asked Questions

•       Do I need to be an athlete or have a background in athletics to participate?

No, our members range from elite athletes to those with little to no experience upon stepping in the door. Each workout is designed to be tailored to any fitness level or limitation. Our coaches are able to prescribe appropriate modifications to ensure each member participates in an effective workout.

•       Do I have to be “in shape” before I start?

There is no prerequisite to begin CrossFit. Several modifications are available for each movement and each workout format for those that are new to working out.

•       Will CrossFit make me bulky? OR Will I lose my gains and muscularity if I start doing CrossFit?

 CrossFit builds strength, improves cardiovascular endurance, increases flexibility, and much more. Changes in body composition will result but are largely related to nutrition. There is a way to train AND nourish your body to work towards any desired body composition. See one of our coaches for guidance and instruction on how to reach your goals.

"The Fear of Bulkiness and CrossFit" - Coach Barnett, CrossFit FMS

•       Is CrossFit Frederick right for me if I have a history of injuries?

 Yes. Each movement can be tailored to address limitations that exist. Often times, the increase in strength, conditioning, and flexibility that accompanies CrossFit training can help improves injuries and limitations. See for yourself.

Adaptive athletes travel from all around the globe to CrossFit Rubicon in Vienna, Virginia, to participate in the Working Wounded Games, a competition that levels the playing field for severely wounded veterans and permanently injured civilians. David "Chef" Wallach, founder of CrossFit Rubicon, says the event provides a competitive outlet for athletes who may otherwise not have the opportunity to compete.

   Is CrossFit as hard as it looks on ESPN?

CrossFit is what you make it. CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. You, and we as your coaches, have the ability to make it as complex or as simple as necessary. What is seen on ESPN is elite athletes competing in a sport. What occurs in our box is a community of people performing workouts with an overall goal pertaining to health and fitness.

Why should I join when I can just follow your blog and do the workouts on my own?

Safety. Proper technique and mechanics are at the forefront of any fitness regimen. Each class our coaches instruct and demonstrate how to properly execute each movement. They also monitor and correct form as needed throughout the workouts to ensure safety and optimal performance. Performing workouts on your own sans instruction can be where safety issues arise and injuries occur.

 Motivation. There is something to be said about the community created by a group doing a class together. The CFF community is one of encouragement and positivist and many find it beneficial to perform workouts with others, often times reaching goals that they otherwise would not have on their own.

  Will I get hurt doing CrossFit, that’s what everyone tells me?

 Paying attention to the instruction of coaches greatly reduces any risk of injury. Outside of instruction, our coaches also closely monitor each individual during the workout to search for and correct any movements performed incorrectly that could lead to injury.

  Will I work out on my own or will I have a personal trainer?

You will have a coach(s) guiding the class. Each coach is certified on how to properly instruct and execute each movement as well as identify fitness-level based modifications. The coach for each class works closely with each member to assign scales and modifications on load, movements, and workout format that present them with an appropriate challenge and ultimately a great workout.
