What program is right for me?
Our Foundations/On-Ramp program is designed for those that are looking to ease into working out and to learn how to perform the fundamental CrossFit Movements safely and effectively, ensuring a seamless transition into the Group Workouts.
The Group Workouts are designed for those looking to get the full effect of a standard CrossFit workout. People who choose this program should be able to quickly learn the movements, have basic mobility, and an average exercise endurance
Do I have to choose a class time and stick with it?
No, you are free to take any class at any time.
What does “Unlimited” mean for our programs?
Unlimited = As many classes as you feel like taking. You are free to take any class at any time of the day as many times as your body will allow you to take. Just because you can take that many classes doesn’t mean we will stop watching your form though.
What is a WOD?
WOD = Workout Of the Day.
What does Rx mean?
Rx refers to the prescribed WOD. (Prescription = Rx)
What do all of these Crossfit Terms mean exactly?
Do I need experience or need to be fit to start CrossFit?
No. One of the most amazing things about CrossFit is that it is universally scalable. You start where you start. Every WOD can be modified. Our goal is to get you fit faster than you would on your own. By modifying your workouts (weights and movements), we can still provide you with a high intensity workout that will keep you safe and put you in a position to be successful in every class that you attend. This does not require a universal fitness level – anyone can do this.
What does Scale mean?
“Scale” means to scale back the workload, or modify the movements. Virtually everyone that starts CrossFit scales their weight and movements as they become more experienced. We stress the importance of scaling workouts until you feel absolutely comfortable with the movements and the technique that it requires to do them successfully on a consistent basis.
CrossFit requires a checking of egos at the door. Don’t worry about the person next to you. Don’t worry about doing everything perfectly. Make sure you have the opportunity to walk in and out of our doors injury-free. CrossFit isn’t going anywhere; there’s plenty of time to get stronger and fitter.
How do I get started?
Check our schedule page for the next Foundations program, and email us to make sure that there is availability. You can always walk in and check out the facility but please try to come in during non-class times. We want to meet you, but our first priority is the safety of and attention to our current athletes.
Am I going to get bulky?
Although weight training is a major component of CrossFit it is only a component. As with any weight training you will gain lean mass which will help aid in burning fat. In order to get “bulky” you need to be very heavy, and consistent on the weight training, and we will only be doing heavy weight training 1-3 times per week. Regardless of your goals (lose weight, get stronger, become an elite athlete, etc.), our programming model will allow you to achieve what you are trying to do. And if for some reason you are not reaching your goals, please come talk to us. We are here to help you.
