We can’t wait for Monday morning to come. We can’t wait to go to the gym. We can’t wait to see what the workout of the day (WOD) is. We can’t wait to hear all of the talks about happiness and turning our “have-to’s” into “get-to’s”. And, we just really can’t wait to be at a place where you can comfortably train in the same class with stay-at-home parents, high level executives, first responders, elite level athletes, obese people, adaptive athletes and grandparents. Our diversity is what makes the whole thing work.
We promise to offer a professional environment and a knowledgeable staff dedicated to helping you reach your fitness goals. We promise to always challenge you so that you never get bored and to create a community that will inspire and motivate you.
To be nerdy, it is constantly varied, functional movement, done at relatively high intensity. What that means in English is that we do a bunch of different workouts, comprised of simple body-weight and free-weight movements, and we are pushing ourselves as hard as we want to or can on that day.
Anything done incorrectly can be dangerous. By going through a Foundations program, you are learning the correct way to move and approach workouts. Once in classes you are under the watchful eye of a coach whose sole purpose is to push you outside your comfort zone while maintaining a safe environment. CrossFit done correctly is NOT dangerous.
Each Foundations session is set up to flow just like our classes do. Each day starts off with a general warm up, like 2 minutes on a bike or a short run to get the heart pumping. Then there is a specific warm up that involves more moving and stretching. Next, you will learn the skills for the day. This portion makes up a bulk of the hour. After you feel confident in the new movements, we cap the day off with a little workout.
Anyone who is new to CrossFit must Foundations. We strive to move with virtuosity. That means doing the common uncommonly well. The best place to learn new skills and hone your abilities is in a one-on-one setting.
Hell yea! Welcome to your new home. “Doing CrossFit before” means you’ve done the introductory course at another CrossFit Gym and then you were an active member there for at least 3 months. If that’s the case, you can do a Test-out. All that means is you’ll try a free class and your coach may ask you to perform some additional exercises to ensure you can move safely.
“My buddy showed me some moves in his garage,” or “I’ve watched all the videos online” are great but we still suggest you go through Foundations if that’s the extent of your experience.
Clothes that you are comfortable moving in. You will be getting up and down off the floor and moving quickly. Make sure they are clothes you are ok sweating in. You will sweat. In the nicer months we will work out outside if the weather permits it. There are tons of CrossFit-specific clothes and shoes out there, but you do not need any of that to get started. If you are looking to upgrade the wardrobe, we can point you in the right direction.
We are sorry to hear that but not a problem. The beauty of CrossFit is that it can be adjusted, scaled, or modified to fit anyone’s needs. In your Foundation classes we can come up with a plan on how to accommodate any injuries.
Boom! Welcome to the family. You can schedule your first class or schedule Foundations by emailing us at [email protected]. One of our friendly coaches will reach out to set everything up. We look forward to working with you!
