If you’ve done an Elements or fundamentals program at another CrossFit box, or have at least 6 months experience training at an affiliate, you’d likely be fine hopping in to the WOD. Email us or call to discuss.
I just relocated to the Southern Highlands, but I’ve been CrossFitting for a while elsewhere. Can I please come to a WOD class?
I have not done CrossFit, but I’m really fit and would like to skip the Elements course and just sign up for the Workout of the Day membership. Can I do that?
No. We require everyone to take Elements, so that we can make sure all of our members have a basis of safe effective movement. This also makes WOD classes better for everyone, since we don’t have to start from scratch each time a movement is used just so the new guy can keep up.
What happens in a free Intro class
Each Intro Class contains a quick summary of the concepts behind CrossFit. You’ll then learn perfect form on a couple of simple, functional movements, which you’ll piece together into a real CrossFit workout, to give you a taste of our approach. You are welcome to join in as many Intro classes as you would like, though after just a first class, most people realise they could be in far better shape, much faster, by doing CrossFit, and quickly join up.
I have/had and injury. Can I still do CrossFit?
While we aren’t doctors (and we highly recommend you discuss any workout program with yours), we do find that many of our members have successfully used CrossFit to rehabilitate from injuries. Because people continue to move, work and play in the real world regardless of injury history, we believe the best route to long-term health is to learn perfect form on functional movements, and to slowly build strength in those movements, rather than to avoid them altogether. Our coaches are always happy to work with you to scale and substitute exercises and tailor workouts to your abilities. That said, we cannot offer you specific medical advice.
Do you have childminding?
We have a safe and fun children’s creche where they can see you and you can see them. Our staff are als expertly trained in peek-a-boo and this little piggy.
What if I’m REALLY out of shape and kind of terrified?
We promise you’ll be totally fine. Trust us. We’ve had heaps of people come in the door who were fatter, weaker, older, and less co-ordinated than you are, and they were totally fine. And more importantly, most of them joined the gym and are now in great shape. Seriously, just come and learn more about getting started.
Do I need experience or some minimum level of fitness?
CrossFit is for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Our members range from high level athletes to ladies in their mid 50s, teachers, Mum’s and Dad’s, lawyers and retirees. In short, if you care about your health, real-world performance, or just want to look better naked, CrossFit is for you.
