Getting started in your fitness journey doesn’t have to be intimidating. We have designed a stress free and fun environment. Our beginners program isn’t a one week thing or just a few classes, it is an ongoing program that slowly introduces you to CrossFit and fitness in general. Everyday will be something new and challenging for all fitness levels. Once you and the coach decide you are ready for the regular CrossFit classes you will jump into the main gym classes and continue progressing on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure you accomplish your goal and never get discouraged.
Following the initial instruction of each class you will go through a MetCon (metabolic conditioning, the bread and butter of what we do) workout to get that heart rate pumping and calories burning. Each day we will tackle a different style of workout, a chipper, an AMRAP or time priority workout, and a task priority workout.
These classes are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday as designated in our schedule. Members who attend the beginners program can also attend the Saturday class as this class is designed for lighter weights, team workouts, and cater to all fitness levels.
What we tend to see is that our new members will first start to feel better moving through workouts and then they will start to see physical changes. As much as we would like to say, “join CrossFit and you’ll lose 15 lbs. in your first week!” we cannot and will not make any such claims. What we can promise is that with patience, dedication and consistency, we can help you change your life permanently and for the better. A big part of this is finding a workout routine that works for you.
Once you choose to move out of the Beginner’s CrossFit program, you will be able to attend any class on our schedule. Dependent on your physical fitness level you will train 3-6 times a week in small group classes coached by our world-class instructors. Classes will start with an instructed warm up, then either skill or strength and move into the WOD (Workout of the Day). After class coaches will walk you through a cool down stretch or roll out session to conclude the class. Classes last 1 hour long, please arrive 10 minutes prior to class time.
CrossFit’s methodology preaches a three days on, one day off workout schedule. Our suggestion for you, especially as you are getting started is to listen to your body and find a regime that works for you. Initially it may just be every other day.
We generally encourage you try working out two days in a row and then decide if you feel like you need to take a rest day. If so rest a day and then return for two more days in a row. If you feel good on day three come in and workout and then rest on the fourth day then come back in for two days. This however is just a suggestion. We have some members who over time find that working out M-F and resting on the weekend is their best approach. Bottom line is, we all operate on different schedules so find the best combinations of work and rest days for you. Once you have found a routine that works try to stick to it, and watch the results come in.
