Frequently Asked Questions
If I’ve never exercised before, can I really do CrossFit?
Of course. The best part of CrossFit Unknown Element is the emphasis we place on teaching proper movements to beginners and our programming designed specifically for anyone that is new to CrossFit or exercise in general.
What happens if I don’t know how to do all the movements or don’t understand the workout?
Coaches teach all of the basic movements done in CrossFit during our classes. You will learn everything you need to know to complete any CrossFit workout. Also, at every workout, our coaches will guide you through getting setup and selecting a workout that is right for your fitness level so that you are challenged but not overwhelmed.
What is a WOD?
An abbreviation for the workout of the day
I have an injury, can I still do CrossFit?
CrossFit is not only a general physical preparedness program, it is also rehabilitative in that it takes the body through a full range of motion about the joint. Proper movement stimulates healing by generating blood flow to the affected areas. How we approach injuries is a learning process between you and us. We want to know the when and what of the injury. From there we can attack the “how to heal”. We have two options for this. We can explain to you our methods and you can scale the WOD’s appropriately or we can arrange personal training session to get you on the healing path.
Do you allow Kids at CrossFit Unknown Element?
Yes! We are proud to offer childcare Monday-Friday at our 9am & 11am class, along with our LightFit Class at 8am on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. This is a fee of $25 a month add-on for CrossFit and $20 a month add-on for LightFit. You can always bring your children with you to class. We just ask that they remain seated in the children's area or on the couches near the front entrance. For the safety of your kiddos and our members, we ask that all children stay off the black mats.
