Getting Started

What is CrossFit?

The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general, and inclusive fitness. CrossFit is program that will best prepare trainees for any physical activity—not only for the known, but for the unknown and unknowable.

CrossFit defines fitness as increased work capacity across varied time durations with a variety of functional movements. With the unpredictability of life (much more so than sport) real world fitness must be broad and not specialized, both in terms of duration and type of effort (time and modal domains).

The magic is in the movements. All of CrossFit’s workouts are based on functional movements. These are the core movements of life, found everywhere, and built naturally into our DNA. The movements efficiently utilize the entire body, therefore they are ideal for maximizing the quantity of work completed in the shortest period of time (intensity).

Can anyone CrossFit?

Anyone can participate in CrossFit. No matter your fitness level, no matter your age, no matter what, CrossFit can be for you. Scaling and modifying workouts is at the heart of what we do, making workouts appropriate to an athlete’s physical and psychological tolerances from beginner to elite.

How do I get started?

We recommend two distinct approaches for beginning the CrossFit Program:

  1. If you are largely familiar with intense exercise, then starting with Group Class setting is a perfect place to start. If you’ve had exposure to olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, or gymnastics, this is the recommended approach to beginning your CrossFit Program.
  2. If some or many of the exercises are unfamiliar to you, we have a 3 session Elements program designed to quickly get you up to speed. We first schedule your INTRO session with a class and dedicate a coach or member to shadow you along your first class experience. After the INTRO, we can schedule your first of three Elements sessions. We include your first month dues prorated in the price of the 3 Elements. Once you graduate Elements, you are ready to attend regular classes.
