Member FAQ

What footwear do you recommend?

We got you now! This is the turning point: you are willing to invest in new sneakers, so we must be doing something right. In all seriousness, when it comes to footwear for CrossFit less is more. Nearly every sneaker company now makes a minimal sneaker which is perfect for what we do. The sole of a minimal sneaker will allow a more level and stable surface for lifting weights. Reebok Nanos and Inov-8s are sneakers that many LGCF’ers have had success with.

What to do if you have a friend coming into town that does CrossFit and they want to come in and hit a workout with you?

Please send them to our drop-in policy page. We are super flexible on when drop-ins can workout so they will be able to join you!

Should I do “Two-A-Days” with classes? Doesn’t that make me get better faster?

This is an answer I don’t dance around. Unless you are a professional athlete, the answer is NO. Any coach that recommends doubling up classes shows how unqualified and uneducated they are about training. I’ve seen many gyms offer “shout-outs” and give positive recognition to members for doubling up. “Two-A- Days” will quickly lead to overtraining, injury, and potentially adrenal fatigue in an individual. Our training is rooted in long-term sustainability and progression.
