For people new to CrossFit we require them to complete our Preparatory Course, or pass a Skills/Fitness Evaluation. CrossFit is is a major life style change for most folks. Anyone, regardless of age or condition, can do it and benefit. While anyone can do it, it is not for everyone because not everyone is willing to put in the effort. This means that while we have helped all types of people change their lives for the better, from kids to great grandparents, not everyone is cut out to do CrossFit. CrossFit is expensive compared to machine based gyms, so it’s a big investment. Therefore, we offer a Free Trial session, and the Skills/Fitness Evaluation as a free session so you can make an informed decision about that investment.
I recall returning to Atlanta in 1986 after a 20 year absence. I was still active playing rugby and needed a gym. I picked up a card that promised a free workout at a big, sparkling gym near my home. Next day, gym bag packed, I went up there ready to workout. I never got that free workout. Instead I got 30 minutes of high pressure sales pitch in the manager’s office. I left feeling tricked, mad as hell, and went to join the YMCA. We won’t treat you like that.
We think CrossFit sells itself once experienced, so there is no sales pitch other than to let you have a taste, and describe what we do and why. The free trial lasts about an hour. We start by describing CrossFit’s definition of fitness (basically being well rounded and good at everything), and discuss CrossFit’s ideas about how to get fit. Then you’ll start execising. The session consists of instruction in several of the most basic movements we use. Your goals and current fitness will be evaluated and discussed. A workout tailored to your abilities will follow. We answer any questions you have. Free trials are 1 on 1, or 1 on 2 personal training.
Free Trials and the Skills/Fitness Evaluation are by appointment only. To make an appointment, Email and tell us your 1st and 2nd choices of the date and time you prefer. Please allow us 24-48 hours to arrange an appointment.
