Getting Started with CrossFit!
Most of our members haven’t had any CrossFit experience prior to training with us and even if they have we haven't had the opportunity to work woth them. Therefore, we require all new members to attend our three-class introductory program that we call “Foundations.” It’s designed to introduce you to the CrossFit methodology, the core movements and the intensity of the workouts. It's also a time for our coaches to get to know each athlete and their specific skill sets, personality, exercise and health history a little better. Just like CrossFit as a whole, Foundations is a learning experience, not a gut check. You cannot "fail".
The Foundations investment is $125.00 We schedule these classes by appointment only. Sign up here and click on the online store, or just call the gym. Then, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your registration, and we'll schedule your classes.

Week 3 tested gymnastics with an 18 min AMRAP of bodyweight movements. Week 4 tested both strength and endurance with a heavy deadlift and double under couplet. Week 5 consisted of dumbbell movements, box jumps, and T2B, combined with max effort rope climbs to go out with a bang. Week 6, was a test of handstand pushups and hang squat snatches.
