Beginning CrossFit

For those brand new to CrossFit, we offer a FREE community class at 8am and 9am on Saturday (please check the schedule and/or contact us to confirm, as there are times they are cancelled for special events). The free community class uses lower skill, light weight exercises so that no prior experience is necessary to participate and enjoy a fun, challenging workout!

We highly recommend anyone in good health interested in CrossFit come try the community class to determine if the workout structure, exercises, and environment would be a good fit for them. You do not need to sign up for the community class in advance, but if it is your first time at the gym, please show up a few minutes early so that the coach can set you up with a waiver.

From there, we offer a few different options to begin your CrossFit journey with us.  For additional information and pricing on any of the below, please check out our membership options.

PERSONAL TRAINING

For trainees who want a one-on-one introduction to CrossFit, we recommend scheduling sessions of personal training at your convenience. We recommend this as the best path for those who are currently dealing with injuries or restrictions that would require significant modifications to exercise, or who want personalized programming to meet specific goals. Please contact us prior to signing up so that we may pair you with a coach who will best meet your needs.

ON-RAMP GROUP CLASSES FOR BEGINNERS

For those with a basic to moderate level of fitness, the on-ramp course is required to learn the foundational movements of CrossFit.  This course is a series of eight classes, and teaches safe technique in a group environment. The coach will guide you through progressions to build new skills and improve upon weaknesses. On-Ramp groups currently start at the beginning of every month, at either 7:30 am or 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Sign Up

 PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE ON-RAMPS

If you have missed the start date for the On-ramp or are unable to attend at the scheduled class times, you may schedule a private On-ramp at your convenience.  We offer private sessions for one person, or can accommodate up to three friends at a time. Please contact us prior to signing up, so that we can determine the size of your group and find a coach available at your preferred times. 

What Is CrossFit?

Our approach is to return “back to our roots” and explore the functional fitness our ancestors would have needed for survival.

On any given day, a workout might consist of running, rowing, throwing, jumping, pushing, pulling, climbing, lifting, crawling, or any of a myriad of natural exercises. These movements incorporate the entire body and prepare our members for the rigors of everyday life. The result is a measurable change in fitness, performance, and body composition. The best part is—it’s fun!

We foster a community of like-minded fitness enthusiasts who often become lifelong friends.  Members are encouraged to cheer one another along and push each other to greater heights.  No longer will you become a slave to the elliptical machine and your iPod—you’ll be a part of a thriving, growing network of fellow CrossFitters.

While we will seek to push you beyond your comfort zone, safety is our first priority. As you grow in your skill and capabilities, our trainers will work with you to expand your repertoire of movements.
