dscf9461

A lot people feel imitiated when they first walk into a CrossFit Box. They look up all the the CRAZY workouts and athletes online before they come and don’t understand one thing: Scalablity. Every single workout and exercise is scalable. There is always a sub to any exercise with the goal being; become very proficient in the subsitute exercise and scale it up a notch until you can do every workout as Rx’d (prescribed). Once you can do that you are well on your way to Elite Fitness.
