One of the biggest hurdles that people face when starting CrossFit is understanding the “language” that CrossFit uses. CrossFit uses terms to describe programming and movements that most people have never heard of. Beyond just the description, many movements in CrossFit are foreign to most of the fitness community because of the broad range of disciplines that CrossFit covers. Our Fundamentals program is designed to navigate you through the first daunting phase of your CrossFit journey. During our Fundamental program we will familiarize you with the broad range of movements and exercide philosophies that CrossFit uses to make the most versatile, functional bodies in the world. We will also teach you how to perform these activities SAFELY so that you keep training . . . and progressing! During your fundamentals be ready to exercise your mind as much as or more than your body. We’ll be covering safety, technique, and terminology from virtually every physical discipline in the world. You’ll be learning how to identify and perform basic techniques from gymnastics, rowing, plyometrics, Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, kettlebell work, etc. We will be teaching you some new concepts from disciplines you may have already tried, like running, weight training, jumping rope, sit-ups, push-ups, etc.
Is CrossFit Worth What I am Paying?
CrossFit rates seem low compared to personal training sessions. CrossFit rates seem high when compared to most gym memberships. CrossFit is a combination of these two experiences.
A typical CrossFit class includes the execution of complex or skilled movements. Performing these movements correctly requires the attention of a knowledgeable coach. Your time in CrossFit will train you in a variety of new skills, each of which will require the attention of the CrossFit coach . . . probably at every class you attend. CrossFit classes also provide you with a variety of programming to develope you as an athlete. Getting similar training from personal trainers would cost a fortune. Learning and maintaining these skills a CrossFit gym is economical by comparison.
A regular gym membership will be far cheaper than a CrossFit gym because a simple gym membership will do none of the things listed above. You will not receive individual instruction. You will not have access to equipment necessary for learning skilled CrossFit Gym movements. You will not have diverse programming organizing your workouts. Attending CrossFit class at any rate is a better deal then the “fitness” offered by the big gym industry.
In most cases, CrossFit boxes charge by the month, for unlimited access t class times. If clients attend three classes a week, most clients will pay about $10 a class. If clients attend classes on every day they are offered, most clients will pay about $4 a class. Between the coaching, the skills, and the equipment, this is quite the bargain.
