WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN A TYPICAL CROSSFIT SESSION?
Each session will last approximately one hour. It will begin with a short warm-up including mobility work to increase flexibility. You will then be instructed on the Workout of the Day (WOD). The WOD will include a strength building movements that will enable you to focus on technique while building your strength. After the strength building movements, members will complete a metabolic conditioning (METCON) workout that compete the anaerobic session of the day. Members will then have time to “cool down” with stretching, light rowing, etc. On top of all this, you can expect to have fun. Everyone will be completing the same WOD at the same time. You will experience the community as well as the competition of CrossFit.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT BY DOING CROSSFIT?
CrossFit will make you stronger, faster, more coordinated and balanced. CrossFit can be used as part of a regimen to lose weight; however diet and lifestyle changes must also be incorporated to get the best results. Simple “weight loss” is not our primary goal; instead, we focus on improving body composition by reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass.
CROSSFIT SEEMS INTIMIDATING. CAN I COMPLETE THE WORKOUTS?

HOW DO I START DOING CROSSFIT?
Come see us! We want you to get a feel for the box and staff. A great way to do this is by attending one of our free introduction to CrossFit classes held on saturday mornings.
If you feel like CrossFit is a good choice for you, we will then ask you to attend our On Ramp – Foundations classes where you will learn how to correctly and efficiently perform the base CrossFit movements. This is an important because it will help to prevent injuries caused by bad form and technique, and it will also enable you to get the most out of each WOD. Once you complete our On Ramp – Foundations course, you’ll be ready to jump into our member WODs.
I’M ALREADY PROFICIENT IN CROSSFIT. DO I NEED TO ATTEND YOUR ON RAMP – FOUNDATIONS COURSE?
If you are coming from another CrossFit facility and feel you are competent enough to bypass the On Ramp – Foundations, you will have the chance to test out and go directly to the member WODs.
