    1) I have heard about CrossFit and watched videos on You Tube but Is CrossFit right for me?

    If you are someone who:

    • Has lost interest in your gym routine
    • Thinks you don’t have time to exercise
    • Is looking to get faster or stronger in your sport
    • Is no longer seeing results with your current training regime, OR
    • Just plain wants to look good in a bathing suit

    Then …… CrossFit is for You !

    2) I haven’t worked out in a really long time. Will CrossFit be too challenging for me?
    No! One of the many great things about CrossFit is that every workout can be scaled or modified to suit any fitness level. What that means is that a new CrossFitter and a veteran Crossfitter can do the same workout, but the workout is scaled according to each athlete’s fitness level. We teach our athletes how to scale and modify workouts in our regular group classes. You do not need to get in shape before starting at CrossFit CBD. That’s what we are here for.

    3) I don’t want lift weights because I don’t want to get too muscular. If you are really worried about this, read this article. But the short answer is no, lifting weights will not bulk you up. In fact, it will help you burn more calories and look better naked.

    4) What about cardio? Surely because we never do any long sessions of running, CrossFitters’ can’t have any endurance or stamina. Wrong. The widely touted measure of aerobic stamina and endurance is VO2 max, the amount of oxygen that your body can consume during sustained aerobic exercise — medium intensity stuff like distance running or biking. There is a common misconception that long bouts of aerobic exercise are the only way to build stamina and endurance, but this simply isn’t true. In the same way muscles must be taken beyond their limits and torn to stimulate growth, your ability to process oxygen must be pushed out of equilibrium in order to increase your capacity to process it. Running at some level below your aerobic threshold (i.e. less than 100% VO2 max) will do little if anything to increase this ability. To push it out of equilibrium and induce growth you have to workout at 200% or more of your aerobic ability. In metabolic terms, you need to work the high-intensity phosphagenic and glycolytic pathways in order to improve the medium-low intensity aerobic pathway.

    5) Do you have showers? No. CrossFit CBD facility is majority outdoors on a rooftop in the middle of Melbourne CBD. There is a an area to change, a hose to jump under if you are keen, but no shower.
