WHAT_IS_CF_BlueHigh Point CrossFit is an integrated approach to fitness that builds strength and increases endurance with high intensity workouts that are adaptable to any level of conditioning. Rather than working muscles in isolation, CrossFit exercises involve the entire body, a method that gets balanced results much quicker than traditional programs that separate the weight room from the aerobics studio. CrossFit workouts have been designed for Marines and middle school kids, ultra-marathoners and ultra-couch-potatoes, grandmothers and grand masters.

 

 

The CrossFit program is designed to give you maximum results in shorter time duration. Our program is your regimen. We provide you with the necessary tools you need to achieve your fitness goals. Most people go to the gym daily and waste their valuable time, doing the same thing day in and day out. Here, you won’t even see the same workout for a couple of months at a time. You will notice a difference in how you look, you how you feel, strength, endurance and an overall higher quality of life. If you follow our plan, we guarantee results! Our coaches are passionate about helping you succeed.

No. CrossFit is for people of all fitness levels, from the complete beginner to an advanced athlete. CrossFit is unique in its universal scalability, meaning two people at completely different fitness levels can perform the same workout using movements best suited to each of their individual capabilities.

No. The High Point CrossFit Fundamentals Course introduces you to all our basic movements so that you can safely transition into regular classes.

Everyday Crossfit is done by kids as young as 8 and adults in their 80s. We have competitive athletes alongside people who are exercising for the first time. Again, all the movements are scalable to all abilities. The only limit is what you place on yourself.

Everyone is always open and friendly to new-comers. We promote a family like atmosphere of support and camaraderie amongst our members. Someone will undoubtedly take you under their wing and help you through your introductory period. Everyone remembers what it was like at their first class and we all want to see each other succeed.

We typically start with a 10 minute warm-up and proceed to our “Workout of the Day” (WOD). The WOD can consist of anything from pushups, pull-ups, and squats, to rowing, running, presses, and deadlifting. Our specialty is not specializing; thus every day is a completely different workout.

After your first class, most people experience one of two thoughts. You will either say: 1)”This it it! It’s exactly what I’ve always wanted! I can get leaner, stronger, and healthier!” or 2)”These people are crazy!” and you will run out. Should you choose the latter, we will give you the phone numbers to all of the local “Globo” gyms and we will patiently wait until you are truly ready to change to a real fitness ideology. Should you choose to become a member, we guarantee you successful results as long as you keep coming through our door.

You should come to classes in clothes that are comfortable to exercise in. For most, that is a comfortable T-shirt and pair of shorts or sweat pants. Proper footwear is also necessary. You may want to bring water and a towel and above all bring a positive attitude!

You are welcome to do whatever makes you comfortable before class begins. Every class includes ample time to warm-up and stretch. Your coaches will make sure you are warmed up at the beginning of class.

The short answer is yes, you can but we wouldn’t recommend it. The better answer is, in a perfect world you would train on a 3 day on, 1 day off schedule. This is because we want you to be able to perform at maximal intensity during each workout. Without allotting time for rest and recovery, your performances may begin to suffer and it could lead to over-training.

If you pursue another physical activity such as a sport, you will need to balance your work/rest cycles and be sure to allow for recovery. Sometimes, you will need extra days off or to consider a WOD as “active rest” done at a lower intensity.

On the other end of the spectrum, we do want to see people coming in on a regular basis. Again, the 3 on 1 off regimen is our recommendation. Of course, life doesn’t always see it that way, there are jobs and family and other responsibilities that sometimes prevent you from getting in on that schedule. At a minimum, though, we want you in 3 to 4 days per week. Your success matters to us, and the only way to achieve that is if you come in.
