have to be in shape to start?
It certainly helps,
but no, not at all! All of our classes are structured in a way that people who
may be deconditioned can still participate. It is simply a matter of scaling,
or adjusting, the workout. You do not have to be in shape to start to get
in shape! We’ll just lighten the load, lower the reps or shorten the time. Many
people at CFPS do scaled workouts for various reasons and we respect that
everyone is at a different point in their fitness journey.
long will it take to see changes/results?
you start CrossFit you will never work out any other way.
CrossFit make me sore?
CrossFit is an
intense workout program and it is common for participants to experience some
soreness, fatigue, or discomfort especially for those who have been inactive
for a while. We would not recommend CrossFit training within two days of a
competitive athletic event (e.g., running a marathon, completing a triathlon,
etc.) or other special event (e.g., your wedding.)
We always try to
scale a workout so that it’s appropriate to each person’s ability level. Please
let the coach know if things are feeling like they’re too much for you and we
will adapt the workout! Please be honest with any health concerns, we are
experienced coaches and have dealt with all manner of confidential issues in
a female and don’t want to bulk up. I just want to tone up and add some
strength. Is that possible with CrossFit?
Good news, you
won’t bulk up. Firstly, females just don’t have the right hormones (e.g.,
testosterone) to bulk up with this type of exercise. You would have to be
lifting very heavy weights, often, and add supplementation to bulk up. Yes, you
will get stronger – guaranteed!
have very poor flexibility and I’m worried that I’ll get injured if I do too
much, too fast. How can I stop this happening?
Well, you’ve come
to the right place. One of our coaches specialises in mobility and flexibility
and includes it at the beginning and end of each WOD. If you’re enquiring at a
gym that doesn’t do any, or does very little mobility/stretching work, walk
away. It’s that important.

There are no

It can be challenging to get into a routine sometimes.

type of commitment do I have to make regarding membership? Can I drop in for
classes as needed?
involves a lot of technical movements which requires consistency. If you drop
in once in a while you will not see any progress in skill development or
CrossFit fitness. The more you put in, the more you get out but we do want you
to take rest days and have a life.
you offer personal training?
this stage personal training is only available outside of the group training
sessions. Pricing is $60/hour for a single session. Blocks of sessions attract
a discount and small group sessions can also be catered for. We can also cover specialty
sessions such as Weightlifting or training for sport or an event.
you hiring any coaches?
We aren’t currently
hiring any coaches, but when we do, we hire exclusively from within our
community. Therefore, if you are interested in working here we highly recommend
that you head over and participate in some classes and get to know people!

The class structure
at CFPS is not your typical ‘bootcamp/globo gym’ class. The coaches are
coaching and not participating in the classes while coaching. There are always
coaches to instruct, teach and assist every step of the way. We will always
help you with proper technique so that you can build your confidence and get
have injuries from the past, can I still work out?
it is a matter of scaling to enable you to experience a great, functional
workout while joining the CrossFit community. The biggest thing for you is to
communicate that you do in fact have an injury that might affect your movement.
The experience of our coaches is unique in that it includes Sports Medicine,
anatomy and physiology, and biomechanics so we will have a good understanding
of your injury. We also offer to work with your physio/therapist to create a
rehab program that you can do in the gym.
all CrossFit gyms the same?
No! All CrossFit
gyms are individually owned and operated; we are not a franchise. Our
affiliation to CrossFit is based on our passion for quality training and
programming and love of functional movements done at high intensity.
Each gym has a
different blend of Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, mobility and other
modalities. The experience and skill level of coaches and trainers also
vary. So what do you look for? Look for coaches who can show you the moves
and explain the how and why of each movement. That’s how you learn and
We are also strong
believers in mobility and flexibility so we incorporate it into EVERY session.
Choose what fits
you best and your goals. No matter what, we are glad you found CrossFit. Done
correctly, it is the BEST strength and conditioning programming around!
long are the CrossFit sessions? I keep hearing they are short workouts.
All sessions are
one hour in length. A session comprises a warm-up consisting of mobility,
flexibility and some sweat. The warm-up is followed by a skill or strength set
and then there is the WOD (workout of the day) which can be 5-30 minutes
depending on the intention for that day. Some days it’s slow, heavy strength
work and other days it can be a long metabolic WOD. That’s the beauty of
CrossFit – it is so variable and unpredictable.
