Common Questions

Have a question about CrossFit Rife? Wow, we must be great mind readers. Hopefully, we can answer a few for you in the FAQs below. If not, feel free to contact us and we’ll reply back as soon as we can.
What Is Crossfit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Since then it has evolved to be an all inclusive fitness program for people of any athletic capability. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, sports, and life all reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our armed forces, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

I'm new to CrossFit. What should I expect?

We have a great program for beginners to Crossfit and functional fitness.
Rife Fundamentals classes are perfect for people who are new to CrossFit or would like a refresher on the basics. The small group, 3-session, beginner's course is held throughout the week and starts over every Monday. One of our experienced coaches will train you through the foundational movements of CrossFit which we regularly program into our group classes. This 60-minute class will typically start with a briefing on what will be covered, a structured warm up, skill coaching on a particular movement or two, a heart pumping workout, then a cool down and brief lecture on a particular topic of the day.

Is CrossFit dangerous?

In short, yes CrossFit can be dangerous. But not in the ways you might believe. With inexperienced coaches, shoddy equipment and the wrong attitude, CrossFit can be very dangerous – but so can riding your bike or driving your car. The experienced and proven CrossFit coaches you’ll find at CrossFit Rife will ensure that you’re training in the safest most effective and efficient way possible.

What's a WOD?

A WOD is the workout of the day. We program a different WOD everyday.
