We don’t want you to waste your time or ours in a free trial, so before you go sign up for the free trial, please know that after the Free Trial we require almost everyone complete our Fundamentals Course or pass a Skills Evaluation before joining our group classes. (Click on those tabs for more info). The Fundamentals Course is a series of private training sessions that cost $65/session and which get your ready for success in group training.
At the Free Trial we will explain why we do what we do. You will learn how we define fitness and what we do to get it. We’ll talk about your goals, your experience in exercise and sport, your injuries and limitations, and we’ll assess your mobility/flexibility. We’ll answer any questions you have. And we’ll do a fitness test.
If, after the free session, you think you should be excused from the requirement of some or all of the Fundamentals Course you may talk to the trainer about that. If we think you can skip some, but not all of the personal training sessions, the price will be adjusted.
CrossFit is expensive compared to machine based gyms, so it’s a big investment, a big decision. We offer the Free Trial, and the Skills/Fitness Evaluation as a free session, so you can make an informed decision. 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 good at everything), and discuss CrossFit’s ideas about how to get fit. Then you’ll start exercising. The session consists of instruction in some basic movements. Your goals and current fitness will be evaluated and discussed. A workout tailored to your abilities will follow.
Free trials are 1 on 1, or 1 on 2 personal training. Free Trials and the Skills/Fitness Evaluation are by appointment only. If you bring a friend, the price per person is lower.
To make an appointment, first be sure you understand our pricing and where we are located, then fill out the form on the right, and please allow us 24-48 hours for us to arrange the appointment.
