What is a WOD? And other lingo to know.

WOD = our workout of the day also referred to as “Metcon”. These workouts are scaled as needed by our coaches to adapt to each athletes abilities and goals.

Q: Do we do the same WOD everyday? A: No, our goal is to have constantly varied movements in our WOD’s to make sure our athletes are prepared for all sorts of contingencies. New day, new WOD.

How often should I WOD?

We encourage 3x a week for the first few months. We want to avoid overuse injuries but we also want to see progress. 3x a week allows a new athlete to recover properly while still making gains.

I am not sure if I am in shape enough to start CrossFit? Should I get in shape first?

You don’t need to be in shape to do CrossFit! The beauty of the scaleable WODs is that they can be tailored to YOUR abilities. We’re all at different levels, and here to feel awesome!

I have heard CrossFit is dangerous, is it safe?

CrossFit is based on foundational, functional movements: movements we all do every day in our regular lives. We believe that teaching the proper mechanics of those movements is what will help prevent injury, whether you’re exercising at the gym, playing with your kids or moving a sofa!

I am new to the area and looking for a new box, would I be able to try it out for a few classes before committing to a membership?

We are always welcoming of new members to our community. We don’t offer free classes, but if you sign up for a Drop-in and decide MTCF is for you, then we will apply your Drop-in fees to your membership dues!
