Why do we require Foundations?
Nowhere else can you get as much out of an hour than with CrossFit. The movements and techniques you’ll perform, however, are sometimes complex and require a bit of learning. For your safety, each and every new member must complete Foundations Classes prior to joining, giving you the confidence and knowledge you need to take on any WOD.
(If you’re visiting from another box and have previous CrossFit experience, contact us to see if you are able to test out of Foundations.)
What is Foundations?
Foundations Class consists of six sessions over 2 or 3 weeks that focus on the core movements of CrossFit. In each class you will learn foundational movements and progressions from a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer, along with Olympic Lifts taught by a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sport Performance Coach. Each class will start with a warm-up followed by instruction on CrossFit Movements and/or Olympic Lifts, then end with a workout using the movements learned that day.
Each class builds on movements learned from the previous class, therefore it is a requirement that you complete all 6 classes in order before you join regular CrossFit classes.
What’s the class size?
Classes are kept small in order to give each person plenty of individual attention while learning these movements.
When can I start?
A new class starts at least every two weeks or when we have enough people to fill a class. Contact us to see when the next set of Foundations Classes start. If those class times don’t fit your schedule, let us know so we can make other arrangements.
What’s the cost?
Small group classes (6 people or less), 6 classes total – $165
Private one-on-one session of 5 classes (you get to pick days/times) – $240
Once you have completed Foundations Classes you are welcome to join any of the regularly scheduled CrossFit classes, Specialty Classes or stop in during Open Gym time, depending on your membership.
