Is CrossFit Safe?

“Will I get hurt if I do CrossFit?” This is many people’s first questions when they are considering joining TriForce. Unfortunately, there are too many big egos on the internet and uneducated “coaches” which have led to injuries over the years. In my first article on “Why I Hate(d) CrossFit” I touched on this, but today let’s dive deeper into this concern.

CrossFit is a form of working out that most people don’t understand. It’s not just for athletes or bodybuilders, but it can be for anyone looking to get in shape. The workouts are never the same which will keep your brain engaged and help you avoid the slump that we have all experienced from boring exercise routines. They are also designed to make you stronger over time so your fitness level improves with every workout! Because of its diverse, high-intensity functional movements, CrossFit is a distinct type of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It helps to improve the depth of physical adaptations and gain strength, endurance, and power, all of which contribute to better overall health. 

So, is CrossFit safe? 

Definitely, yes! As long as it is practiced correctly — just make sure you find a qualified coach before juymping in classes. The misconception with CrossFit is that it is dangerous. The truth is, CrossFit is dangerous when done incorrectly. And the further truth is…All workouts have risks associated with them if they’re not being performed correctly. 

That is why at TriForce we have introduced several safety measures in order to allow our members to have increased longevity. We are, afterall, focused on staying healthy for the rest of our lives, rather than trying to crush our bodies.

The primary way we help our members stay safe is with expert coaching. Whether you choose to do 1-1 personal training, or enjoy group CrossFit classes, you will always have a coach watching your form. These professionals will make sure you are doing movements appropriately and you don’t ever push too far beyond your capabilities. 

We also take your initial time at TriForce very seriously, because we know that if you have a strong base, you can continue seeing improvements for years to come. Everyone starts with at least 6 Personal Training sessions to teach good movement patterns as well as assess your current fitness level. You also will be assessed head-to-toe by one of Doctors of Physical Therapy. They will find areas for you to improve your strength, mobility, or coordination, and give you a specific plan to address your deficits.

Because CrossFit is considered “high-intesnity” some people think that they are too out of shape for it. No Way! Crossfit builds your strength in functional movement patterns so you are actually less likely to get hurt doing things in every day life, like playing with your kids or moving furniture. It also helps you lose weight by burning fat and building muscle mass at the same time.

So if you’re still on the fence about whether or not to give this whole ‘CrossFit’ thing a shot, hopefully you feel more confident that at TriForce, CrossFit can be for anyone. It might seem intimidating at first, but once you try it out for yourself, you’ll understand why so many people are obsessed with it.
