Fundamentals

As many of you know, we are now requiring that all new CrossFitters take our Fundamentals course before joining the group classes. In Fundamentals, newbies will learn basic CrossFit movements so they will be better prepared in the group setting. This will not only set new athletes up for success, but it will also result in a safer workout for all.

During the course, athletes learn and practice movements such as the squat, front squat, overhead squat, press, push press, push jerk, deadlift, clean and sumo deadlift high pull. They also get coaching on technique for box jumps, GHD sit-ups, thrusters, rowing, wall balls and more. Each class ends with a WOD.

This course in an additional one-time cost and also includes diet evaluation and counseling. If an athlete believes they are already proficient in CrossFit exercises, they can have the opportunity to "test out" of the class by demonstrating strict and effective form on a variety of basic CrossFit movements. If they do not pass, they will be required to take Fundamentals.

Yes, Fundamentals is an investment. And, yes, we understand that our gym is higher-priced than the globo-gyms in town. However, the value is much greater. Where else do you get hands-on training from coaches who are always expanding their knowledge base, helping you with diet/lifestyle and pushing you to be the best, healthiest, safest athlete you can be?

    P.S. — Sweet backflip Doo-rag! Did you overcome your handstand mental block?
    I would love to signup for that class next time!

    Hey Sib…sorry but not all of us have a career like you…some of us are in nursing school and had to study for a very hard test this morning…don’t worry I’ll come in later to beat your time 🙂

  8. Debbie D

    Oh gee thanks, Wendy! I was hoping that wouldn’t surface…EVER. Though it is interesting to see how silly you look trying to be a kid again. The handstands are progressing, yes, but I pulled something (naturally)and have been laying off them for the past few days.
    Would love to see a gymnastics class/workshop locally! It really was fun.

  9. Diane Blais

    Looking good Debbie, our own little gymnast.
    I used to be able to do that stuff, should be real funny to watch now though.
    Yea, nice pic Kristi, was that the wod where we did three rounds of posing? lol
    I am just dead after the wod today. I was really sucking air bad. Tomorrow is rest day for me, thank God!!! enough running!!

  10. Debbie D

    After all the posts today, I can’t say that I’m really looking forward to tonight. Though I have the excuse of giving blood today, so maybe I’ll just do 3 rounds instead of 5…

  11. Charlie and Susan Clendening
