1What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a lifestyle that combines a large variety of different exercise modalities with a sound foundation in nutrition. We do different things every day that will challenge you and push you a little outside of your comfort zone.

CrossFit is more than just a training program, its a community of like minded individuals who get to workout together, laugh, cheer, and make new friends all while achieving their desired health and fitness goals.

2Is CrossFit too hard for me?

No! Not to worry Every workout can be scaled for the individual to ensure proper technique is used and the correct training stimulus is achieved. As said by CrossFit Creator Greg Glassman, “the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience…The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.”

3Will CrossFit get me the results I’m looking for?

Only if you are committed to making a change, stepping outside your comfort zone, learning new skills and becoming a better version of YOU. At CrossFit Override our mission is to inspire young athletes to work hard and follow their dreams, while motivating adults to achieve their fitness goals and improve overall health/well being.

4I heard CrossFit is Dangerous?

We like to use the analogy of driving a car. If we fail to respect the power of the car or rules of the road, then YES driving a car can be dangerous. As long as we have the maturity and correct guidance to progress accordingly based on current life situation and training history then CrossFit can be a very safe approach to fitness.

5What is a WOD?

WOD stands for Workout of the Day. This can pertain to skill work, strength, conditioning or any combination of the three to be performed that day.

6What is the “New You” Foundations?
