Details:

  • The first night of CrossFit for beginners is more talk than work.  We will introduce you to the main concepts and explain why CrossFit is the strength and conditioning program that is sweeping the world (hint: results).  This first class is free and there is no obligation to continue.
  • If you wish to continue, the full Foundations course for beginners is five additional classes:  Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30, and Saturdays at 8am for two weeks.  The cost to finish the Foundations Course is $199. (January Foundations only – $99!)
  • Class size limit: 15
  • Following completion of the Foundations course, you may come to the regular classes for two weeks, so your Foundations cost actually covers a full month.
  • Questions? Please contact us.

More Explanation:

Because we want to be sure you are safe and successful in CrossFit, the Foundations Course is mandatory before purchasing membership and attending one of the regular CrossFit classes. This course introduces you to the basics of CrossFit skills and the nine foundational movements.

The Foundations Course consists of six different classes (3 times per week for 2 weeks). Each class will last an hour and 15 minutes. During the course you will learn proper technique for weight training movements, new gymnastics skills, how to track your progress, how to self-adjust your workout, proper etiquette and where the bathroom is located.

Think of this like playing golf for the first time.  You wouldn’t want to jump into a foursome of guys who have been playing for two years and you don’t even know which club to use.  You may not become an expert golfer in just a few lessons, but you’ll know enough to go out and play.  That’s what the Foundations Course is designed to do…give you the confidence and basic skills to come play.

2) Boot Camp

Saturdays at 9:15am

Mondays and Wednesday at 10:30am

 

Boot Camp workouts, while still high intensity, are meant to be fun and functional.  We don’t worry about counting reps or trying to do something as quickly as possible, so it feels a little less competitive.

With Boot Camp there is no Olympic lifting, and in fact, no heavy lifting in general.  Yes, we will swing kettlebells and throw medicine balls and use dumbbells and things, but we won’t be setting aside time to lift heavy weights.

Boot Camp allows you to get started right away, meet the coaches and experience the atmosphere and community of the gym.
