Yes. You can get injured doing anything. But the purpose of CrossFit is to prevent injuries and other health-related issues, not cause them. Certified coaches teach you how to move properly and help to condition you for everyday life. Strength training builds muscle, builds stronger connective tissues around your muscles and increases joint stability. In other words, “CrossFit makes you harder to kill.” The risks of injury associated with ANY physical activity pale in comparison to the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, etc. CrossFit actually helps a person reduce ALL of these risks. Simply consider that heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, killing nearly 800,000 people per year. No one has ever died from CrossFit.
