IS BOX FIT SAFE?

You can injure yourself in any activity, but BOx Fit is safer than many activities people perform every day. We work with people in 3 stages. First: mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do the movements). One does not come before the other.

IF I HAVE A PREVIOUS INJURY, CAN I STILL DO BOX FIT?

Please talk to your doctor before starting Box Fit, or any fitness or nutrition program.
