We don’t want you to waste your time at the Free Trial, so before you go sign up for it, please know that after the Free Trial we require almost everyone to do personal training with a coach before joining our group classes. Our Fundamentals Course is a series of 10 private training sessions designed for people new to CrossFit, and aimed at getting you ready for success in the group training. The personal training sessions cost $65/session. People with CrossFit experience who wish to skip some or all of the Fundamentals Course may book a Skill Evaluation session after the Free Trial.
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 coach about that to set up a Skill Evaluation.
CrossFit is expensive compared to machine based gyms, so it’s a big investment, a big decision. We offer the Free Trial 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 for a long term contract. 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 bodyweight movements. Your goals and current fitness will be evaluated and discussed. A fitness test 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.
