New To CrossFit
Although CrossFit has been around for decades, the first CrossFit gym was opened in California in 1996. Founded by Greg Glassman, CrossFit has been one of the most effective forms of fitness ever invented. So effective that basically new fitness facilities have all modeled after a modified version of CrossFit. Orange Theory, Boot Camps, and the most effective and high-end Personal Training Studios have adapted their workout routines after the very basic concepts applied in CrossFit.
Wait, what’s CrossFit?
To be nerdy, it is constantly varied, functional movement, done at relatively high intensity. What that means in English is we do a bunch of different workouts, comprised of simple body-weight and free-weight movements, and we are pushing ourselves as hard as we want to or can on that day.
How do I get started?
Contact us for an introductory visit, tour of our gym, and to set up your Introduction to CrossFit sessions. Please text Nate at 404-556-5885.
How do I sign up?
What do I wear?
We recommend clothes that you are comfortable to move in. You will be getting up and down off the floor and moving quickly. Make sure they are clothes you are ok sweating in. You will sweat. In the nicer months we will work out outside if the weather permits it. There are tons of CrossFit specific clothes, shoes, and gears out there, but you do not need any of that for Foundations. If you are looking to upgrade the wardrobe we can point you in the right direction.
What if I have an injury?
We are sorry to hear that but not a problem. The beauty of CrossFit is that it can be adjusted, scaled, or modified to fit anyone’s needs. In the Open House Sessions we can come up with a plan on how to accommodate any injuries.
I’ve heard that CrossFit is dangerous, is it?
Anything done incorrectly can be dangerous. By going through Foundations, you are learning the correct way to move and approach workouts. Once in classes you are under the watchful eye of a coach whose sole purpose is to push you outside your comfort zone while maintaining a safe environment. CrossFit done correctly is not dangerous.
My significant other is interested in starting, too. Can they come?
For sure! We encourage you to bring your significant other, friends, and family to try us out. Please ask us about our couples and family discounts.
