  • Where does CrossFit come from and what is it? CrossFit was created in Santa Cruz, CA by a former Gymnast, Greg Glassman. There were 13 affiliates in the year it started being recognized in 2005, now almost 10 years later we have over 10,000 affiliates worldwide and growing. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, if not seemingly randomized, functional movements executed at high intensity. It combines weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio in ways you never thought possible. Our objective is to become proficient in all ten physical skills:  cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, coordination, power, agility, balance, accuracy, and speed. The WOD (workout of the day) is always different and at CrossFit Marauder II we have a clearly defined level system created to meet the needs of any human being, regardless of age, and ability.

 

  • What is On-Deck program? Our On Deck or Intro program is a 1 week, 3 day program that will help build you the foundation needed to start our regular CrossFit program. This allows us to teach you proper form and function before joining a class. Also helping you to avoid injury. There is an initial assessment upon signing up and a post-assessment at the end of the program to ensure you are setup for success in your CrossFit program.

 

  • Is CrossFit a cult? A cult is a group of people that have their own set of beliefs that others find strange. CrossFit is a group of people who are into fitness in a unique way than what others believe fitness should be. So are we strange? Nope, we are just evolving fitness, and we are more then happy to prove it to you.

 

  • As a woman, will I “bulk up” from doing CrossFit? First, women do not have the necessary testosterone levels to put on a large amount of muscle mass. Secondly, the women you are envisioning, who are huge, are using testosterone and mass building supplements to get that way. So, unless you are supplementing like a bodybuilder, it is highly unlikely you will bulk up. In fact, weightlifting and CrossFit have been shown to increase weight loss, and give women a tighter, leaner, and more toned body the way nature intended us to look.

 

  • Is CrossFit for me? YES!! CrossFit is for anyone who is willing to work hard and improve their overall fitness and strength. Whether you are a high school athlete or a stay at home mom, an elite Lacrosse player or grandfather of four, you CAN do CrossFit.

 

  • Why wear flat shoes? Wearing footwear that is flatter will allow for better traction to the ground that gives you stability when you are doing functional movements and weight training. If you need additional support, you can always add insoles to flat shoes.

 

  • How many days should I do CrossFit? The general suggestion is 3 days on and 1 day off, however it depends on your schedule, goals, and ability. We recommend at least 3 to 4 days a week if you want to see real results. Try to do no more than 3 consecutive days, but no less than 2 days in a row before a rest day. Above all else, though, listen to your body, but know that you must/can work through soreness and fatigue. The intent is obviously to train enough to meet your fitness/health goals, while at the same time not overdoing it to the point of over-training or possible injuries.

 

  • Why are you called Marauder II? We are called Marauder II because we had an original location that is currently being re-located.

 

  • Is CrossFit too intense for me and will I get injured? CrossFit is a program that delivers fitness that is, broad, general, and inclusive for everyone. The individual and coach work together to create a level of intensity for the person. Every person based on their background will always be at different levels, but all desire one end goal to be fit and healthy. CrossFit is nothing new and cross training has been practiced for years before CrossFit brought it back to life. At CrossFit Marauder II we have skilled coaches who have a plethora of experience to work with you to the provide the safest and best program to change your life. We also have designed protocols such as our assessments/re-assessments and level systems to help fit your body type that help promote longevity and make you injury proof.

 

  • Why is CrossFit more expensive then a gym membership? In a regular gym you are paying for a membership in a CrossFit gym you are paying for one of the best fitness programs, coaches and community of support that allow you to transform your body and life in ways you never thought were possible.
