Q. Will I be shown how to do exercises and movements properly?
A. YES! All classes are coach-led and the fundamentals sessions are there for that reason. Teaching the safe and basic techniques from the start is the best way to go, and from there on, fine tuning on techniques is a constant in every session.
Q. What are the ‘fundamentals’?
A. They consist of 9 key foundational movements: Air Squat, Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Shoulder Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Deadlift, Sumo Deadlift High Pull and Medicine Ball Clean. These are usually split into 3 1-to-1 sessions that everyone must do as their induction to CrossFit.
Q. What is the format of a WOD (Workout Of the Day) class?
A. You will start with a warm up, followed by a skills session (the practicing of particular techniques/movements required for CrossFit workouts), then the WOD and a warm down.
Q. Is CrossFit just for really fit people?
A. No! Each and every workout can be scaled to individual needs, age, ability, skill level, body shape and size. CrossFit is designed to be inclusive.
Q. How hard are the classes?
A. CrossFit workouts are designed to be hard but not impossible. Workouts are universally scalable, allowing for all levels of fitness, skill and age, to participate.
Q. How can I pay for membership/will I be tied to a contract?
A. Standing order, credit/debit card, cash or cheque. There is no contract – we just ask for the first month to be paid upfront.
Q. Do you have changing rooms?
A. Yes, separate mens and ladies with a shower in each, and a separate toilet.
