The Biggest Misconceptions About CrossFit

Fact: there’s no preparing for CrossFit on your own. You will get in shape at CF845 with coaches keeping you accountable to reach your highest potential, instead of trying to run on the treadmill for a half hour, by yourself, scrolling Instagram, alone.


Fact: people would rather stay safe on their couch and become unhealthy, instead of MOVING. The body is meant to move, not deteriorate. It’s never too late, and the majority of our clients are in their 40s and 50s. There are countless members who are in better shape now than they were in theirs 20s and 30s.


Fact: yes, the first time is definitely intimidating. But if you were to ask any one of our members, they will tell you it is the farthest thing from intimidating after getting to know the coaches and community. REMEMBER, everyone who’s come in before you has felt the same way you do about being nervous and intimidated!!


Fact: it’s an investment into your health. What’s more expensive than a CF845 membership? Doctor’s bills. “But the gym down the road is $20/mo.” What sets us apart from those traditional gyms is that they expect you not to show up with a low price point like that. You pull the ole, “I’ll start tomorrow.” Here, with our higher price point, we keep you accountable and the price forces you to show up. You’ll actually get a message from one of our coaches asking where you’ve been.

  • “IT’S A CULT”

Fact: It’s addicting. Of all the terrible addictions you can think of right now, this is the best type of addiction. We are the farthest thing from a cult. Our community is just a bunch of like-minded, happy people who welcomes any body with open arms. Why? Because they were in your shoes at one point too. Haters hate on happiness.


Fact: social media has depicted CrossFit as a bunch of weirdos lifting too heavy and flying around on rings. That’s not us. Our biggest concern is SAFETY (see below) and it is our job to make sure you don’t push yourself too far. Our reputation here in the Hudson Valley speaks to that. Remember, you could get injured getting out of your car, or walking, or sneezing, etc.


Fact: there’s two contributing factors to getting bulky – eating a lot, and heavy weight training every single day. Our program is balanced.

What We DON’T Do

We would never, under any circumstances, throw you into any class at any time without any supervision from one of our coaches. There are other gyms in our area that will try and get new members in at a very low cost. “$30 for 30 days,” “FREE 6 Week Challenge,” “50% Off Your First Month.” I’m sure you have seen their ads.

But that low cost comes at a high cost for your safety and well-being. Without proper on-boarding like we do with our 3-Step Process, your chances of hurting yourself increases.

Always remember: the gym you are thinking about joining needs to have a proper on-boarding programming for you.

Before CrossFit 845 I was tired and sluggish all the time. I never knew how out of shape I was, but I am going to keep going and eating right to get to the body I vision myself having. I love it!
Before CrossFit I was a disabled mother getting weaker by the day as my son started to become more independent. I never thought I’d be able to do half the things I’ve done with our class but to see myself improving and being able to compete with others brought me to tears when I came home and told my husband. I am beyond thankful for CrossFit 845 for helping me to move past this dark part in my life. I have a life again and it’s because of this program, our awesome teammates, and our amazing instructors.
“CrossFit 845’s 6 week challenge has changed my life in so many ways. I’m no longer falling asleep right after putting my daughter to bed and I’m getting so much more accomplished each day. In the past I would join a gym as my New Year’s resolution, walk in and say to myself, “I’m too out of shape to be here” and leave. CrossFit 845 has shown me what a real “gym community” looks like. Each class a member or trainer has gone out of their way to ask, ‘How’s it going?’ I feel more confident about myself and my abilities all the time. Thank you CrossFit 845!”
I can honestly say this is one of the most motivating gyms I have ever been a part of! The trainers at CrossFit 845 are attentive, and they focus on safety and form. They are always willing to help their members strive to be the best that they can be. The gym is very clean, well taken care of, and the trainers make you feel welcome and comfortable. Ever since I joined, I have seen noticeable changes in my strength and endurance. Joining CrossFit 845 is definitely one of the best choices I’ve ever made.
Dave has been great so far and even though I like to mess around I have lost weight and have a new found physical and emotional feel. I am so glad I saw your marketing on facebook and am glad I have done the 6 week challenge. I look forward to continued classes way after it ends.
