Frequently Asked Questions
What do “Px”, “Fx” and “Lx” mean?
At MKG Fitness we understand everyone has different fitness goals and abilities. This is why we have designed three different tiers within every class/workout that allow members to determine what’s appropriate for them at each stage of their athletic development. Each tier has different weight loads and movements to preserve the intended stimulus to accommodate potential limitations of experience level, range of motion or injury. PX - Performance The weight loads and movements are designed for athletes who enjoy competing in local competitions, on-line events such as ‘the games’ and aggressively advancing in the movements. Fx - Fitness The weight loads and movements are designed for athletes that have developed proficiency in the different lifts and movements. Lx - Lifestyle The weight loads and movements are designed for athletes that are just starting out or have mobility issues which prevent them from executing movements properly/safely.
What if I can’t do the workout as written?
Not to worry! Everything we do here can be scaled down to each individual’s ability. We encourage scaling as much as possible, to ensure proper form, technique, intensity, and range of motion.
Can I/Will I get hurt?

However the injury rate is completely blown out of proportion. Be careful with what you’re reading and check the source. Here is a level headed post on the Real Clear Science website.
