The CrossFit Roots FAQ

Hey Roots Crew, we need your help! We’re compiling a new athlete FAQ for the website and want to know what you think needs to be included.  What questions did you have when you first joined?  What would have helped you assimilate into the group classes more easily?  And what questions do you still have!!

Examples include, but certainly are not limited to: where do I get knee sleeves for Oly, what kind of shoes should I wear for workouts, where do I find the workout of the day on your website, and how much do BooBars cost?

Post to comments.

    I don’t know how the FAQ should be phrased, but I think there should be something addressing the myth that weightlifting causes women to bulk-up.

    Starting crossfit, or even making it to that initial intro class, can be very intimidating.  ‘what if I can’t do the exercise? What if I can’t finish?  what if I can’t even lift the bar?  It would be good to let people know Roots is a very friendly, welcoming place with althetes of all different ages and abilities.

    I agree with Hank!  Also, maybe include something about how it’s okay if you don’t quite remember the differences between the clean, jerk, snatch, etc….because the coaches are great about reviewing everything before the workout.

    Yep, also, I was very confused about pretty much everything when I first started. it took a solid 4-6 months until something clicked in my brain and I finally started progressing. Up until then, I honestly dreaded going to class, trying to figure out which bar was 35 lbs, how to use the website, where to buy a jump rope, how many bands to use,etc. But all the coaches and fellow athletes were so supportive and patient, that  I slowly dropped my “special needs” status. maybe post something to the effect of “have faith, be patient, you WILL see results!”
