I’ve heard CrossFit is dangerous and my doctor/therapist says I should avoid it because I’ve been prone to injury in the past.. is this true?

Our number one priority is to make sure our athletes reach their PEAK potential while taking long term overall health and fitness into account. Injuring yourself is counterproductive to this.
