What will my first time in your gym be like?
Your first time in our gym will be during a Free Trial class in which you will be in a small group of other new entrants – taking it step by step and ensuring you stay safe, have fun and get a good work out! We won’t throw you to the wolves! We invest in you, before you invest is us.
Why is your gym more expensive than other gyms?
We know you may have a lot of choices on where to workout. Every gym option provides a different experience. But we make it simple: Our gym costs more because we do more for YOU. We have small classes, dedicated coaches, incredible attention to detail, high standards for safety, an incredibly engaged community for support and a method of fitness that will change your life…not just crank out reps.

What’s your drop-in policy?
We love nothing more than having visitors from other boxes come “throw down” with us!
If you are just passing through, we charge a drop in fee of $25 for 1 or 2 classes or $50 for 3+ classes in a week. Your drop in may also be paid for by donating a shirt from your local box – we love to showcase the boarder CrossFit Community!
It’d be great if you’d give us 12 hours notice of an intended class as we do cap our classes at 12 in order to deliver a high quality experience. We may not accomodate last minute arrivals without prior notice! You can find our class schedule Here.
You may find that we do things a little differently than your “box back home.” We hope that you enjoy the change in scenery, clientele, maybe even music. If anything makes you uncomfortable, however, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
How often do you recommend I come to the gym?
If you’re just starting up, we recommend coming three days/week for your first couple weeks, then build to four, then five. Once you’re up to five days per week, we recommend building in two recovery days per week.
What exactly is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness program that will change your life. By it’s definition, it uses “constantly varied, functional movement performed at a relative high intensity”. As a truly functional program, the difficulty level of our daily workouts is designed to be increased or decreased, depending upon the individual. This makes them doable by anyone.
Daily workouts could include things such as core conditioning, rowing, sprinting, gymnastics, lifting, etc. And all our workouts are designed to improve overall flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, and agility.
I’m not in very good shape… can I do CrossFit?
The very first thing you will discover is that CrossFit does not discriminate. Whether you are young at heart, or have just completed your 50th marathon, or are recovering from injury or healing a broken heart, whether walking the dog is the only exercise you’ve had in years, or you’re someone training for the Iditarod…We will help you achieve your fitness goals.
One of the things that makes CrossFit so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, elite athletes, students, CEOs, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it. CrossFit bodies – our bodies – come in every imaginable size, shape and age; and yet, our workouts every day are designed for anyone to do them.
I heard that CrossFitter’s use their own language, can you help me with the terms?
