All first time CrossFitters will be required to attend foundation classes. These classes are held in conjunction with our regular CrossFit class but you will receive one on one attention and training on the basic movements of CrossFit including the Squat, Deadlift, Jerk, Snatch, and clean. During these foundation classes all participants will undergo a Functional Movement Screen where deficiencies in movement will be identified. Once identified individual mobility and or stability work will be given to each participant to work on at the beginning of each following class.

CrossFit classes generally last 1 hour and begin with mobility/stability drills and dynamic warm ups. Following the warm-ups, participants will be instructed on the Workout of the day (WOD). All WODs can be scaled to the individual’s strength and skill level making these workouts fun and competitive for all. Once the WOD is completed additional strength or skill work will be presented. All classes are constantly varied functional movements and will test multiple parameters of your individual fitness.
