We don’t want to waste your time in a free trial with us, so before you go sign up for the free trial, please know that we require that everyone complete our Fundamentals Course, or pass a Skills/Fitness 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 to succeed in the group training. If you are looking for the cheap, fast entry to CrossFit group training, we are not it. If that’s what you want, you need to go somewhere else. There are plenty of CrossFit gyms in the area that will put you into group classes faster and cheaper that we do, so before you sign up for a free trial, be sure you understand what we require, and how much it costs.
At the free trial we want you to learn why we do what we do, so you will learn about CrossFit’s definition of fitness and the CrossFit Method. We’ll talk about your goals, your experience in fitness, exercise, and sport, your injuries and limitations, and assess your mobility/flexibility. We answer any questions you have. And we will 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.
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 to arrange an appointment.
