How Old Do You Have To Be To Do Crossfit?

The general rule is that people can start with crossfit as long as they are over the age of 14. If you are under the age of 16, you need to have an official letter from your parents which says it is okay for you to begin training. The USA CrossFit® Rulebook states that there should be no “forced entry” into the program unless it follows the basic criteria laid out by Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Rule 176-7.3(2) requires that only adults will be permitted in licensed facilities without parental consent on workout days or competitions. You must also be at least 18 years or older on the day of your first class (and cannot attend an individual session if younger than 18). Additionally, there can be exceptions for children born on or after January 1 of any year, who assume all responsibilities of fitness completely on their own accord.

A quick explanation: AMRAP stands for “as many rounds as possible” and it works like this: You complete 20 minute rounds using 5 movements (i.e.: squats, cleans, snatches, jerks, swings). When you are ready to move up in volume increase the number of reps per round by 1 then repeat 3 more times or 10 total if you are working hard enough. If your score is sub-8 minutes you are working properly…If not keep repeating until you can do no worse than 8 mins without stopping. The idea behind amrap is to build endurance over time but it makes sense because there are few other workouts where strength athletes can continue at high intensity for 20 minutes straight!!

24-hour Fitness is considering adding competitive CrossFit to its schedule. (CBC) There is an elite fitness craze sweeping the U.S., and now the Maritimes are beginning to catch on. And though it can seem extreme, some people are discovering they love it at 24-Hour Fitness in Stellarton, N.S., where athletes are now being formally recognized with their own team name, colours and jerseys. It’s called CrossFit — a combination of highly technical Olympic training with hard work at high intensity designed to test physical ability as well as mental fortitude Julie Bédard calls this her last good year before she needs knee replacement surgery, but that hasn’t stopped her from competing in leg strengthening competitions across North America under the banner of Team Les Anglaises de la Natation Fondue if French for “The English ladies of swimming fondue.” “It’s getting harder every day,” said Bédard, who clearances five three metre platforms off one side of the pool at 24-Hour Fitness Brantford near London, Ont. “But I’m doing it anyway because I’ve had a stroke about four years ago and anything is better than sitting at home.” Two months ago Bédard finished third overall in New York City after only six weeks’ training.
