Common Questions and Misconceptions
Do I need to get in shape before I start a program?
No! Every one of our programs has instructors who are tuned into the individual client inside a group setting. We will find scaled movements that will build you up over time. Beginners are welcome.
Are classes open gym, or led by an instructor?
All classes are led by an instructor in an hour long session. Proper warm-ups, skill builds, intensity, and cool-downs are part of every class. Denton MAC instructors are a tight knit group who take pride in their students’ success.
I’ve heard CrossFit is dangerous. Is that true?
At the Denton MAC, our coaching staff and programming focuses on technique and proper movement first. We work smarter so we can go harder. At first you may be asked to scale movements so that you may learn proper mechanics before performing more complex skills. Trust the process.
I watch MMA, I don’t want to fight in a cage.
No worries. Very few people who train martial arts train for professional fights. Each art has its own methodology, but all of the instructors teach grounded martial principles that allow for self development through learned physical skills.
I want to do both CrossFit and Martial Arts. Is that allowed?
Yes. All programs are open to you through our membership packages. We do ask you be mindful of your body as you acclimate to a new routine. Physical conditioning does help with the martial arts. And the martial arts are a great way to flex your athleticism in unexpected and mentally challenging ways.
