CrossFit FAQs

I work out all the time and I am in great shape,  can I be exempt from CrossFit 101? 

Being in great shape doesn't necessarily translate into proper technique in all of the CrossFit excercises.  Our first priority is your safety and health - afterall don't you want to stay in great shape.   If you are interested in joining CrossFit Suwanee, please contact Jeff Kearse at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I have done CrossFit at other gyms and already completed a similar program to CrossFit 101, can I be exempt?

Possibly, but you will still need to set-up a time with one of our trainers to make sure your background and understanding is in line with the curriculum covered in CrossFit 101.  Contact Jeff Kearse at This email address is being protected from spambots.

As part of my CrossFit membership, what all do I have access to at Suwanee Sports Academy?

Each CrossFit training session will be designed to make appropriate use of different parts of the facility.  Most sessions will take place exclusively in our CrossFit training center on the second level of the facility.   The instructor for each session will communicate which areas you can use safely during the session.

Can I come to any session?

Yes, as of now you can show up to any session and attend as many as you want each week.  As our membership grows we may require you to notify us before the session so we can make sure we have enough room for everyone.  But for now just come whenever you can.

If I can't make any of the scheduled workouts, can I come another time and do a workout on my own?

We post a workout every day under "WOD,"  so you may do the prescribed workout on your own.  Please understand that there are risks with any workout program (including CrossFit) so you will need to make sure you are competent in all the movements before trying on your own.   All of our workouts here are monitored by professional trainers.  The CrossFit gym at Suwanee Sports Academy is not open outside of the regularly scheduled CrossFit workouts.

How do I know which workout to attend each day, which one will be appropriate for my level of fitness?

Come to the workout that best fits your schedule.  Most of the workouts will be similar if not identical each day.  The beauty of CrossFit is that a grandparent can train next to an elite athlete.  The difference is the duration, intensity and load that each individual takes on.  That is why each session is guided by a certified trainer, who is there to help you make the right adjustments to fit your individual needs.

Are there any limitations to who can participate in Suwanee Sports Academy CrossFit?

There is CrossFit program for kids, but its not currently offered at Suwanee Sports Academy so we require members to be at least 14 years of age.   IMPORTANT PLEASE READ Before beginning CrossFit, please check with your primary care physician to make sure you are able to particpate in intense physical activity.  Our trainers are certified to teach the techniques and methods of CrossFit.  They are not medical professionals, so please seek the appropriate advice before beginning.  If you have any past medical history or injuries please make sure your trainer is aware of them.
