YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, WE'VE GOT ANSWERS
OUR MOST COMMON QUESTIONS:
No they are not. Each gym is owned and operated by different individuals and as such it naturally takes on a unique feel based on the character and personalities of the coaching staff, owners and clientele. This is what people have characterized at the CrossFit “community”. It is important to go to a gym that spends time teaching and breaking down complex movements in a way that teaches people to move safely and efficiently. You will also gravitate toward certain personalities, so go to a gym where you like the vibe. We offer a Free Trial Class for anyone wanting to experience the CrossFit Tustin difference.
Nope. Just show up with a good attitude, and the desire to sweat and work hard – we’ll provide the rest!
We are not your typical on-your-own by yourself, lift some weights and go home gym experience. Our training is based on a high-performance, small-group personalized environment. Every hour-long class is led by an experienced and knowledgable trainer who is there to guide, motivate and push you to a new level of fitness. We will teach you the skills, habits, and nutritional knowledge you will need to achieve incredible results and sustain a long-term fitness lifestyle.
CrossFit is for everyone – kids, seniors, professional athletes, moms, business professionals – you name it! It doesn’t matter what your current fitness level is – we scale every workout to match your current abilities and increase load as your fitness progresses.
Not to worry, CrossFit will increase lean body mass, but not to the degree most people think. Since CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program and not a bodybuilding program, your results will be a leaner, more toned version of yourself.
“MetCon” is short for Metabolic Conditioning. These are typical conditioning workouts done at high intensity in either an interval time-based format or a sequence of movements executed for “rounds”. You may be asked to do a workout “For Time” or for “Rounds”.
Other variations include an “AMRAP” (As Many Rounds As Possible) workout in a pre-set time frame. An AMRAP workout is doing a sequence of movements repeatedly in a particular time domain.

The short answer is as often as you can. But to be honest the answer to this question depends on a few key things. Typically we recommend you CrossFit between 3 and 6 days a week depending on your fitness level, recovery time, goals and normal activity level. Everyone is different. A great model is the 3 days on and 1 day off approach where every 3 training days you take 1 full-rest day. In the beginning you will often be too sore to CrossFit everyday and in that case please listen to your body!
Absolutely! CrossFit by definition is universally scalable, meaning all of our workouts and movements can be modified–or “scaled”–to meet your individual needs. Please inform your trainer and work around the injury, protect your mobility and avoid any painful movements. We can work with you to get you fit with most any limitation you may have.
