1 ) What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a universally scalable fitness program that delivers results. It is the preferred strength and conditioning program for many first responders (police and firefighters), special ops units (military), professional sports teams, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Because it’s scalable, CrossFit offers results for everyone at any fitness level, from grandparent to elite athlete. The fitness needs of individuals differ by degree not kind. So load is scaled for each individual for the best fitness results from the same regimen.

2 ) What’s a WOD?

We use the acronym WOD when talking about the Workout of the Day.

3 ) Can’t I Do The Same Workouts at a Gym or at Home?

You CAN do the WODs at a gym or at your house, but you’ll be missing out on the two most important aspects of CrossFit Brunswick: Coaching & Community.

Coaching: The training and coaching that is offered at CFB is CrossFit Certified. With accreditation from the American National Standards Institute, CrossFit’s Level 1 certification is currently the only internationally accredited personal training certification. Our trainers take pride in continual study of exercise and nutrition and offer the most knowledgeable training around.

Community: Our workouts are built around the group setting which provides an atmosphere that fosters camaraderie and community. CrossFitters cheer one another on while pushing each other to push past personal records. Teamwork and healthy, friendly, competition are encouraged!

4 ) Why is CrossFit Brunswick More Expensive Than Other Gyms?

  1. It’s not an ordinary, traditional gym.
  2. The monthly membership fees aren’t “club dues.” At CFB you are not paying to borrow the equipment, you are making an investment into your own health & fitness with unlimited access to community, AND coaching each month. You are paying for a personal trainer who will guide you through modifying your workouts and nutrition to fit your needs.You also get to become part of an amazing community that will help you achieve your goals.
  3. In any open society, there are “products” that are premium and those that aren’t. The “product” (results, community, coaching) provided by CFB is premium and we’re proud of it.
  4. Most gyms don’t offer such a broad, general, and inclusive fitness program. Our specialty, by design, is not specializing. If you specialize (in fitness), your results will be diminished across a variety of activities. For example, if you go to a regular gym and workout on the elliptical machine for an hour a day, you’ll excel in exercising on the elliptical, but you’ll probably not excel in other areas. CrossFitters excel across a broad range of athletics, survival, combat, martial arts, etc. If you CrossFit you’ll be better at everything.

5 ) What If I Can’t Do The WOD Exercises or Movements?

Because CrossFit is scalable, you’ll never find yourself not being able to participate. Whether it’s by modification, substitution, or scaling weights you’ll always get an intense WOD and in the process build a stronger body and a stronger mind.

6 ) I Want to LOOK Good, Will CrossFit Brunswick Work For Me?

 

Yes!! Whether your goal is to gain muscle, lose body fat, or to simply move and feel better, CrossFit is the answer! Learning how to attack your workouts each day in order to achieve your personal goals is the key.

7 ) What is “On-Ramp”?

At CrossFit Brunswick, we value total fitness and push all of our members to be in a continual state of competition with themselves to be the best athlete they can be. In order to do that, our staff will work with new members to ensure that each new member learns and maintains proper form and becomes familiar and comfortable with the style of workout at a CrossFit Gym. Proper form coupled with correct scaling and modifying ensure continual growth and success.

“I’ve worked out my whole life, do I really need to do the On-Ramp course?” YES! CrossFit is a different, demanding, complete and total body workout that requires discipline and commitment. In order for our community of CrossFitters to be completely successful, we need to make sure that all of our members are up to snuff.
