What will my first time in your gym be like?

Your first time in, we want you to feel comfortable. One of our awesome coaches will give you a tour of the facilities, we’ll sit down with you and walk through your goals, we’ll do a quick fitness assessment with you, and we’ll walk through what you can expect.

Why is your gym more expensive than other gyms?

This is a question we are asked often; and likely a question/comment many members of CrossFit gyms hear too. “Expensive”, like hard, soft, cheap, hot, cold, etc. is a relative term. Expensive compared to exactly what? Expensive compared to the traditional gym membership that allows you access to equipment only, no coaching, no personalized workouts, no individual attention, no personalized fitness advise, and a few pizza parties each month? Or expensive compared to P90X in your living room? Or compared to the cost of living the final years of life with one of a myriad of obesity-related diseases? Think for a moment about some of the other bills in your life.  How much is your phone bill per month?  How about your cable bill?  Most people don’t think twice about paying $100-200+ each month for those things, and they contribute to a lack of, not increased wellness.

We know you may have a lot of choices on where to workout. What’s best… A treadmill at home? The gym down the street that is $15/month? A CrossFit membership? We’d actually encourage you to ask a different question. What are your goals? Now based on the answer, what will you need to get there? Personalized attention? Instruction on correct technique? A workout program tailored specifically to your goal? Trained, professional coaches right beside you? Accountability? Working out with a group of like-minded people who cheer you on to your success? If the answer to any of the above is “yes”, then we’d encourage you to check us out because you will get all of these as a member of our gym family.

A thought to consider is this, “you’ll pay for your health one way or the other. Either through massive medical bills down the road, or through a membership to a quality gym now so you can live not only longer, but happier and healthier all along the way.”

What’s your drop-in policy?

We love nothing more than having visitors from other boxes come “throw down” with us!
If you are just passing through, we have a drop in fee of $15 per day or a 10-class punch pass for $120.

Follow This Link to the Drop-ins page and sign your waiver and pay for class, or it’d be great if you’d plan on arriving 15 minutes before scheduled class time so you can sign our waiver, take care of payment, and introduce you to our box. You can find our class schedule Here.

We are confident that you will probably find we do things a little different than your “box back home, however, we hope that you enjoy the change in scenery, clientele, maybe even the music. If anything makes you uncomfortable please don’t hesitate to let us know.

See you soon!

How often do you recommend I come to the gym?

If you’re just starting up, we recommend coming three days/week for your first couple weeks, then build to four, then five. Once you’re up to five days per week, we recommend building in two recovery days per week.

What exactly is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a fitness program that will change your life. By it’s definition, it uses “constantly varied, functional movement performed at a relative high intensity”. As a truly functional program, the difficulty level of our daily workouts is designed to be increased or decreased, depending upon the individual. This makes them doable by anyone.

Daily workouts could include things such as core conditioning, rowing, sprinting, gymnastics, lifting, etc. And all our workouts are designed to improve overall flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, and agility.

I’m not in very good shape… can I do CrossFit?

The very first thing you will discover is that CrossFit does not discriminate. Whether you are young at heart, or have just completed your 50th marathon, or are recovering from injury or healing a broken heart, whether walking the dog is the only exercise you’ve had in years, or you’re someone training for the Iditarod…We will help you achieve your fitness goals.

One of the things that makes CrossFit so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, elite athletes, students, CEOs, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it. CrossFit bodies – our bodies – come in every imaginable size, shape and age; and yet, our workouts every day are designed for anyone to do them.

Yes, anyone.

I heard that CrossFitter’s use their own language, can you help me with the terms?

Sure! This is a great link that will help get you started – http://greatist.com/fitness/ultimate-guide-crossfit-lingo.  Word of caution: No need to be intimidated by this… ☺ We’ll walk you through it all!
