The answer to this question is NO. First let me say at Shockoe CrossFit, our style of working out is NOT dangerous, as some other gyms maybe. You may have heard stories from friends getting injured in CrossFit, and have let that skew your idea of what this actually entails. This idea has grown because not all CrossFit gyms, and crossfit coaches for that matter, are created equal. CrossFit has become a popular commodity and the problem with that is the door has been opened to many impostors. The coaches at shockoe bottom CrossFit are loaded with experience and specifically trained to catch when movement faults are happening and to correct them so that injury does not occur. We intimately work at finding and correcting any potential for danger. For this reason, CrosrossFit is very safe and very beneficial at SBCF. This creates an environment were you will find health and fitness, community and friendship, and your true potential!
