What is CrossFit?

In 100 words:“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.” ~ CrossFit Founder, Greg Glassman

It’s a workout methodology based on constantly-varied high intensity movements that help everyday life.Why it works is because your body never adapts to any one movement thereby keeping the effect of any given day’s workout at maximum – and you never gets bored.

Why is Smart Move CrossFit better than my gym?

The business model for most commercial gyms is they want you to sign up and never come in.You may get a tour of the gym, or a quick overview of the equipment with a trainer, but, you’re on your own after that in most cases.They aren’t there to ensure technique is good when the weight gets heavy or you get tired. In a commercial gym you basically pay membership to be allowed to use their space and machines.

At Smart Move If you haven’t come in for more than a week, we notice. So will the other members you’ve got used to working out with. Expect even a friendly call out on Facebook checking in on you, if you haven’t been coming in!Of course, there will ALWAYS be a certified coach watching your form in our classes to ensure you are executing to moves correctly and savely. You wont have to worry about the training plan either. We have that all worked out for you and all year long we shall guide you daily through a different training that have proven to lead to progress. Expect to get stronger , move better , up your confidence and look fitter.

I heard from my gym that CrossFit can hurt you. Is this true?

Yes and no.First, consider the source, they don’t want you to leave and they’ll plant fear in your head so you wouldn’t leave.

OK, so onto answering the actual issue,ANYTHING you do in life can injure you if you don’t do it correctly, or haven’t taken into consideration your level of fitness, flexibility or health. If you’re spending too much time on the couch right now, that’s hurting you, too! Runner’s get shin splints, tennis players get tennis elbows, strength trainers get strains, basketball players get sprained ankles, couch potatoes get obesity, high blood pressure and coronaries.

At Smart Move CrossFit we will instill Technique BEFORE Intensity.We will keep you safe by having a watchful eye on you during your entire workout.By increasing your strength and flexibility, we will actually make it harder for you to get hurt!CrossFit done properly, is both safe and effective.

I don’t want to lift weights because I don’t want to become too muscular.

Lifting weights will not bulk you up, it will actually help you burn more calories.

What does WoD refer to?

WoD also known as Workout of the Day is the list of exercises for a given day. Since CrossFit is constantly varied, everyone is always anticipating what tomorrow’s WOD / training will be as no day at Smart Move looks the same.

Do I have to train every day in CrossFit?

No, we encourage you to train intensely but also to take your recovery serious..It’s vital to keeping you healthy and allowing you to push next time to new personal bests. Over-training is something we discourage because it does not help you achieve your fitness or health goals and increases the risk of injury.We recommend either a 2 day on , 1 day off or 3 days on, 1 day off approach.

If I want to join can I just start today?

No, all our members go through a fundamentals course before joining the regular classes.

What is the fundamentals Course all about? What will I learn there?

Smart Move CrossFit is committed to 3 pilars:Technique, Intensity, and Community.

Without proper Technique, you won’t be able to transition to performing with great Intensity.It’s the way we keep you safe from injury.

The Fundamentals course will not only give you a good sweat, but it will help learn the proper mechanics to keep you safe and in the long run allow you to lift more efficiently and heavier as well as some knowledge on why CrossFit is so effective and why nutrition is key to your physique and your power output.We won’t forget teaching you about mobility as well, to keep you active and injury free for years to come.

I am already fit. Can I skip the fundamentals course?

Of course it is possible if you were going to an other crossfit box. The only condition is to make our trainers sure that you know the fundamentals and you have the right technique.

Is there any opportunity for personal training?

Definitely! For more info contact us via mail so we can make an appointment to talk about your goals.

I am an athlete. Will CrossFit help me improve in my own sport?

CrossFit will definitely make you a better all-round athlete and this will benefit you in your specific sport. Atheletes preparing for competition we recommend to choose for our personal training option so we can tailor the training program to your specific needs, weaknesses and strengths.

We have helped athletes from different sports (MMA, boxing, skiing , running, etc) get ready from a strength and conditioning point of view for competition.
