Getting Started

1. Read What is CrossFit?

2. Sign up for a one month package. Bring friends if you can. CrossFit is best if enjoyed in a group. Be a student of the game by coming in prepared for each session. Review the exercise posted on our website. Have an understanding of what the exercises are before coming to class. You do not have to be an expert at them (that will come), but you need to know what they are.

3. Workout three to six times per week – preferably 3 days on, one day off. Learn to workout within yourself. Although anyone can do CrossFit. Only the tough-minded survive. Be a tough-minded individual! CrossFit has a way of bringing that out in you. Never whine. Never complain. Always communicate with the coach. LEARN, LEARN, LEARN every day.

4. Eat good food – eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. If you are not ready to eat right making progress will be very difficult. CrossFit is the whole package and nutrition is part of that package.
