Getting into CrossFit

Making significant changes to your fitness and lifestyle is a big decision. Before you invest your valuable time or hard-earned money with any gym or trainer,  it’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and your needs and goals are understood.

The thought of walking into a class of people lifting barbells can be intimidating. Especially if you’re feeling unfit or overweight.  The last thing we want is for anyone to feel overwhelmed or out of place with us which is why we sit down with each potential new member for a No Sweat Intro.

During your NSI, we will find out exactly what you’re hoping to achieve and why… because we want to get to know you. We will ask you specific questions to get a real understanding of where you’re at with your fitness so far… no PE kit required! CrossFit is designed with all abilities in mind, so don’t worry if you’re an absolute beginner.

If we’re a good fit for each other we can talk through our membership options and what will work best for your specific goals, so that you can start your CrossFit adventure with us, with confidence.

Once you have completed your No Sweat Intro, what’s the next step?

You need to complete a 3 session Fundamentals Course (Consecutive Saturdays at 11:30am),
You can start the course at any session, as long as you complete all 3 sessions. With this, you also get access to 3 of our beginner workouts on Monday evenings at 7:30pm and will also receive 6x FREE Bootcamp sessions to use anytime during the course, so you can get started on these classes if you’re keen to get stuck in.

You will still need to wait to complete the course before joining the WOD classes*
**This can also be arranged 1-1 if you can’t make the above times**

The course must be completed before you can sign up for a monthly membership. This is essential as you will learn fundamental movements that will make up the bulk of your training as well as assistance movements and an introduction to gymnastics.

The course will include learning the 9 Fundamental CrossFit Movements;

Squats (Air, Front, Overhead)
Press (Strict, Push, Jerk)
Medicine Ball Clean
Sumo Deadlift High Pull

As well as these movements, you will learn movement standards for Press-ups, Pull-ups, Wall Balls and all manner of fun things that make our workouts so enjoyable and challenging! We want you to enter the group sessions confident in your grounding and able to perform the basics. We will continue to teach as time goes on, but grasping these movements gives you a great platform to work from.
