We hear this question often. Here’s the answer: You aren’t. You are going to do your version of the workout, not theirs.
Think of it like a car: Cars are tools designed to be customized to the driver. You adjust the seat, the mirrors, the radio. You decide how fast, what lane, etc. A car’s job is to get you from point A to B.
Crossfit is the same: workouts are a tool to get you to health & fitness. You can adjust weight, speed, movements, etc. The goal isn’t to do it just like someone else, it’s to get the work done in a way that works for you. All workouts are adjustable to your specific level and ability - we’ll help you figure out how. That’s what we’re here for! That’s actually one of the benefits of CrossFit over a typical gym membership: a supportive coach will guide you through the class and help you find the best way to do the movement.
Would you be upset if you got to the end of a trip and didn’t drive your car the exact same way someone else did, with the exact same settings? We hope not. Youshouldn’t be upset if something similar happened in CrossFit.
The point isn’t to drive someone else’s car - it’s to drive yours
