Q&A with a Crossfit T9000 Investor and Student
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
CrossFit is a culture of individual training in a small-group setting. You become accountable to yourself, your trainers, and those in your class to stay motivated.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
Lack of knowledge about what is required or how to stay safe in the process. Getting fit doesn't require lifting heavy weights, and knowing how to protect stabilizers is as important as building larger muscle groups. Slow down and do it right, and you get fit faster, stay fit longer, and stay safe.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
CrossFit is for everyone. Our trainers set the pace and you participate at your experience and comfort level. There is no way to work hard in our classes and not see results.
