What to Expect
When you walk into our gym, the first thing you are going to see is.... people. Plain and simple. NORMAL PEOPLE!! Our members are doctors and lawyers, teachers and nurses. And most likely when you walk in, they're all going to be milling around catching up on small talk. We start our classes with a coach-led warm-up. These warm-ups are designed to get your body moving and get those muscles ready for some work! After warm up, we generally have a strength workout that will encompass some variation of a lifting movement. Sometimes these are timed, and sometimes they are set to a rep scheme. On the days that we focus on more intense metabolic conditioning, we may not have a strength workout.
The WOD is also coach-led, and everyone starts at the same time. The warm-up, strength, and WOD are all on the board daily... so you know what's coming. The coach will go over each of the movements, and then the fun begins! Don't worry if you don't know the movements, or if it's a movement that you can't do. The coach is here to help you! The coach will work you through the movements and determine any necessary scaling for you before the WOD ever starts. You will not go into any WOD without having some direction from your coach. If you have any extra questions, just ask! We love to talk about Crossfit and its movements!
After the WOD, if there is any time left in the class you are free to stay and work on mobility or any other skills you so choose.
What to Really Expect....
Crossfit isn't just a workout program, it's a whole attitude. You're going to make friends here... and I mean lifelong friends. These are going to be the people that push you to work harder, be better, and show up. These people will work their butts off to beat you in a WOD, and then turn around and cheer you on before they can catch their breath. It doesn't matter if you're the best in the gym or the newest... your effort is the same and that ties everyone together. Maybe it's the common suffering... but it takes the community of Crossfit to a whole new level. You're going to do things you never thought you could... and you're going to have your own cheering section! So come on... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??
