Where is Industry Athletics located?

Industry Athletics has two locations in Baltimore. CrossFit Federal Hill is located at 1220 Key Hwy, Baltimore, MD 21230 and CrossFit Harbor East is located at 510 S Eden St, Baltimore, MD 21231

Can you get injured doing CrossFit?

You can injure yourself in any activity. At CFH we like to think of each person as an individual. NO matter what your level is our first focus is on safety of movement. Then we lock down consistency. Can you continually perform every movement correctly. Finally we will push you to go fast and test your intensity.

Will I get too big and bulky doing CrossFit?

No you will not accidentally get too big and bulky. In order for people to get big, buldging muscles (especially women), you must do a few things. Number one, eat a ton. Literally, your caloric intake needs to be through the roof and filled with a high volume of protein and fat. Second you need to consistently pick up really heavy things, rest for a few minutes then repeat. Do we do this? Yes, but then we might run a mile or do 100 Burpees (if you do not know you will find out soon). My point is in CrossFit we combine cardiovascular endurance which gives athletes a lean and athletic look.

What happens after I'm done with the Prep Course?

After you complete the Industry Athletics prep course, you can join Industry Athletics as a member and take any class offering at both locations. We’ll also knock $100 off your first month’s dues after signing up. See membership options here. If you’re interested in continuing with personal training, you can also sign up for one of our personal training packages.
