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?
All physical training programs come with the risk of injury. That being said, CrossFit is no more dangerous than any other fitness routine. And it’s certainly better than no program at all. 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.
