What equipment do I need for CrossFit?At Freakin Awesome CrossFit, we provide all the equipment necessary for a successful CrossFit workout. However, we recommend that our members come prepared with basic workout attire, proper shoes, and a water bottle.

Our classes are designed to be challenging and push you to your limits, but also provide modifications and scaling options for all fitness levels. We encourage our members to listen to their bodies and adjust their attendance based on their individual needs and goals. Remember, rest and recovery are just as important as the workouts themselves.
Can I do CrossFit if I have an injury or medical condition?CrossFit can be adapted to suit anyone's fitness level and physical limitations. However, we highly recommend that you consult with your physician before starting any exercise program, especially if you have a pre-existing medical condition or injury. Our experienced coaches are trained to modify workouts to accommodate individual needs and limitations.

CrossFit workouts are designed to challenge the body in a variety of ways, including strength, power, endurance, agility, and coordination. By incorporating a variety of exercises and movements, CrossFit can help individuals build muscle and increase their overall strength. In addition to the physical benefits, CrossFit also promotes a sense of community and camaraderie among its members.
