Do I have to be in shape before I can start at ChalkBox?
No. It will actually be more beneficial if you start CrossFit without any knowledge of how to exercise. You get to learn the important fundamentals right off the start. This will allow you to develop a great base. Exercising without coaching can lead to improper form, muscular imbalances, and higher risk for injury.
What types of movements/exercises will I be doing?
You will be learning the basic functional movements, learn how to perform bodyweight exercises and weight training. We use kettlebells, barbells, gymnastic movements, Olympic lifts, elastic bands, sandbags, rings, rowers, medicine balls, bike, and more.
I cannot run or do any of the movements I see in the workouts!
Don't worry all movements are scalable and during your sessions your coaches will find a suitable movement your can perform comfortable and safely. Our aim is the keep you moving throughout the entire workout and as you are getting fitter you will be able to do more movements.
Our members are very diverse bunch of people. They all come in different shapes, back ground, health issues and ages. However they have one common goal: get healthier and fitter!
