What is CrossFit Oxnard?
CrossFit Oxnard is a facility that utilizes the national CrossFit philosophy in every training program offered. We offer a variety of programs for all fitness levels. CrossFit Oxnard focuses on fitness and wellness through community development and support.
Do I need to be a serious athlete to do CrossFit, Boot Camp or Athletic Training?
One of the best things about CrossFit Oxnard is that every program is scalable to each individual’s fitness level, so whether you’re a serious athlete or working out for the first time, CrossFit Oxnard is for you.
I Am Visiting From Out of Town, Can I Drop In?
Yes! We love visitors! You can come and drop while you are here – our rules are you must have been CrossFitting at an affiliate gym for at least 3-months, check out our schedule online, select a class, and then send us a heads up to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get right back to you. You essentially have three options:
1) Pay for the first drop in only, or get a deal for the drop in AND get a CFOx shirt, and $10 for each additional drop in up to 3 days from the initial day.
2) If you are going to be here longer than a week, we can prorate any membership option to fit the time frame you will be here.
3) We have punch cards that never expire.
Come 10 minutes early to fill out our information form and waiver. We look forward to meeting with you.
How intense are the classes?
Our programs are all scalable to your fitness level. In other words, it’s you against the workout—you get to decide exactly how intense your workout will be.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to get in the best shape of your life with CrossFit Oxnard. Melt away 5-10 unwanted pounds, get out of the gym for a not so traditional workout, and cut your personal training fees by ¾. You can also expect to get better core strength and a tighter backside, as well as functional strength and agility, that apply to sports and everyday life.
Can I get a good workout in under 30 minutes?
Yes, this is absolutely what we strongly believe in. More and more research shows that shorter duration/higher intensity workouts yield higher benefits/results. Basically, it just boils down to hard work. But the truth is, the longer the effort the lower our intensity. If you run 10 miles your intensity (power output) will be lower than if you run multiple 400 meter sprints. CrossFit Oxnard does go beyond 30 min on occasion, but the majority of our workouts are shorter in duration. If you have a shorter workout, you can work harder by nature which can lend to a better response, especially combined with the movements we do. No matter who you are or what workouts you do, without hard work you will not receive results, which is why we encourage you to work to the limits of your physiological and psychological tolerances.
I am afraid I will get too big and bulky…
In order for people to get bigger, especially women, there are two things that you would have to make a concerted effort to do. One: pick up very heavy weight on a frequent basis. This is not something we do. Yes, we are very much concerned about your strength and we do lift heavy some days. But this is not our main focus. Two: eat an extremely high calorie diet. For most to gain productive muscle mass takes quite the effort in eating the right foods in a high amount. This is also something that we do not focus on. The majority of the workouts we do provide your muscles with more contractile potential and not hypertrophy (muscle mass).
I have heard you can get hurt doing CrossFit, is this true?
You can injure yourself in any activity, but CrossFit is more safe than many activities people perform every day. We like to work with people in 3 stages. First: Mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do the movements). One does not come before the other. We always start with Mechanics.
Do I have to get in shape first before I start?
This is a common misconception. The most elite athlete can come into the gym and find a workout challenging. You will never be “fit” enough. That’s why we are here and offer scaling options for each individual so that you can thrive in each workout on a personal level. Fitness is a lifelong journey, we are never really “there”.
I feel it is too expensive, is this true?
Our rates are actually less expensive than any other group led workout programs in our local area. The reality is with the quality of instruction you get from our trainers, it is personal training at a fraction of the cost.
I have heard CrossFit is really hard, is this true?
CrossFit is as hard as you make it. We encourage people to push to the limits of their own tolerances but only you can make the most out of your own workouts with the amount of work you put into them.
I need to cancel my membership – what do I need to do?
We ask for a two week notice for cancellations by email to email@example.com. If the auto payment has already come out we are unable to give you a refund. Auto payments occur on the day you stated on your membership agreement.
