Frequently Asked Questions

CrossFit Oakville > Frequently Asked Questions
I heard CrossFit is dangerous, will I get hurt doing your program?

Sure, if groups are ran by incompetent coaches and programming is done without the clients best interest in mind. But, along those lines, driving a car is dangerous. The bottom line is that there is a progression to everything that we have ever or will ever have our clients do. Our mission to provide a safe and encouraging environment where everyone can reach their fitness goals.

What is a WOD?

WOD stands for Workout of the Day, and varies from location to location. Our programming (or daily WOD) will generally consist of a thorough warm up, strength and/or skill work, and a met con or conditioning piece to cap off the session. Everything that we do is tailored to the fitness level of the individual, allowing everyone from the beginner to the advanced client to get a great workout!

What's with all the workout names?

The named workouts that are often associated with CrossFit are considered “Benchmark” workouts. Meaning, they are tests to see where your fitness currently lies, and there are only a handful of them. Just like anything else, you don’t get better at the test by simply doing the test, so this goes back to balanced approach to fitness.

I heard CrossFit is only for people that want to compete, is your program entirely geared towards competitors?

Not in the least. Although the CrossFit Games have become popular due to being televised and attention on social media, the reality is that most people are simply looking to improve their fitness in a fun and encouraging environment. We understand that there is a fine line between training for wellness and competitive fitness, with far more people leaning towards the former!
