What if I have a medical condition or injury?

Like any exercise program consult with your doctor first BEFORE starting CrossFit. We also ask that you disclose any medical conditions including injuries, to your coach BEFORE the workout even if it was from a long time ago. This will help us scale the workout appropriately for you.
