What is CrossFit?


CrossFit benefits everyone from the couch potato to the elite athlete. We believe fitness means being able to perform well in different movements and different time intervals. CrossFit athletes can perform well in a variety of different events. Our programming delivers clear results which are measurable and comparable. We burn fat like crazy and create the world’s best athletes with a scientifically-backed, evidence-based approach to fitness. Want to read more? Check out CrossFit’s “Foundations.”

What is a WOD?

We refer to our daily workouts as “Workouts of the Day” or a WOD, and these will be updated the night before the workout.

What are all the weird abbreviations people use and why do we post on the website?

Rx – “As Prescribed” (WOD performed according to posted weights, reps and movement standards)
# – used to replace “pounds” for weights
PR – Personal Record
1RM – One Rep Max

There are other abbreviations used as well, but you’ll pick them up as you go (T2B = Toes to Bar, PU = Push/Pull Up, etc.).

Also, the website is really helpful for keeping track of progress over time through the use of Trackbacks (links to the last time a WOD was done at the gym) and the search bar. For example, if you see that Push Press is coming up in a WOD but don’t know what weight to do, search for “Push Press” and you can see what you did last time or gauge the weights used by athletes of comparable proficiency.

Why is membership more expensive than [insert name here]?

The short answer is it’s not. The cost of Charlottesville’s gyms and health clubs don’t include personalized small group training. They can have thousands of members because they know you won’t use the gym.

Our higher prices reflect our commitment to offering you the best possible personal fitness training in all of Charlottesville. Think about how much small group sessions or personal training sessions cost you ($20 to $100/hour). At CrossFit Charlottesville, we charge our members less than $10 per class which is a great deal.

Remember, we don’t just show you a machine and tell you to use it, we work with you, teach you new movements, focus on your specific goals and make sure that you are reaping the benefits of CrossFit.

I’m a woman. Will lifting weights give me “Popeye” arms and a huge neck?

There is a common misconception that lifting weights will gives women massive shoulders and huge arms. With CrossFit, you will experience improved muscular tone, but unless you eat massive amounts of food you will not become bulky.
