Your introductory consultation is your opportunity to ask any questions about CrossFit and decide if it's the right path to achieve your fitness goals. The truth is that CrossFit is for everyone and you might also be surprised to see just how safe and achievable the training can be.
The consultation usually takes 30 minutes.
You will be doing some light movements to help us determine any customisation needed for your CrossFit training. We recommend you wear clothing that allows you to move freely. You will also need enclosed footwear. Something like a pair of runners is fine.
Part of the initial consultation is getting to know a bit more about your lifestyle and current level of fitness. We will talk about things like; do you have any previous injuries that may affect your movement patterns, how much quality sleep do you get each night, how is your nutrition and are there any stresses in your life that may affect your progress.
Many of our clients sit at desks all day during work, in which case there is a good chance that hip and thoracic (upper back) mobility is impaired. This is all considered in helping you achieve sustainable progress in your fitness (i.e. without injury).
Also CrossFit training is suitable for any fitness level. If you are just starting out, you will likely be most comfortable in our Beginner Program where each workout is less demanding that the normal CrossFit classes.
As part of the consultation we need to get an idea of your movement patterns and basically see how your body moves. We also compare your left and right side for balance. For example, is one side stronger than the other? If so, how will we best tailor the training to deliver the best results.
Regular training at CrossFit Hunter will develop a stronger muscle tone. For most people this results in a slimming down of the body because any excess fat melts away as muscle tone increases.
Progressing to additional muscle 'bulk' would require significant dietary adjustment for most (think dramatic increases in protein) and modifications to the standard CrossFit training schedule. i.e. A reduction in cardio activity and a dramatic increase in lifting REALLY heavy weights.
So if you're concerned it will happen by accident - it won't.
But if you WANT to put on bulk, then be prepared to put in a fair bit of additional work!
