Q- How many times a week are recommended?
Our program is written as 6 days on 1 day off. We recommend at least 3 days a week for best results. If new to CrossFit, we do recommend progressively working up to more days. Start with a couple days a week and add on as your body becomes acclimated. Obviously, more is better; however we understand schedules do not always allow for this. Less days will show slower progress; however, still progress.

Q- Do you recommend back to back days?
