About > Getting Started
CrossFit teaches and utilizes a broad range of skills; including technical and simple feeder movements. We are an environment that is 100% coached. Before joining regular classes we ask you to complete our Foundations program to introduce you to the movements in our programming. These sessions accommodate all levels of experience to build a stable base and later allow more complex movements to be performed well. You don't need to have a high current level of fitness before you start with us and the 7 intro classes are accommodating to all ability levels. We will teach you the movements that are the most efficient for developing fitness, and the weights in your workouts will be scaled to your current capacity. You learn about how and why we do what we do, how to safely perform the movements and how to modify them if needed. We learn about how you move and your capacity in different domains of fitness, to best accommodate your needs in the workouts. This is the first step in building a coach/athlete relationship. We call you athletes, not clients, because we believe this creates a more balanced relationship, each with our own responsibilities in your progression. Whether you have a limited background in fitness, or have trained these movements on your own before, you will find that being coached and hearing new cues is beneficial to your skill development or refinement.
The 7 Foundations sessions can be completed as part of our group classes or privately. PLEASE CHECK OUT THE TWITTER FEED IMMEDIATELY BELOW TO FIND OUT THE NEXT START DATE, and then click 'Foundations' in our SCHEDULE to see the full schedule of classes and sign up. Private or semi private Foundations sessions can be started at any time, contact us at email@example.com. During the summer months the demand for group Foundations is more variable. Email us if you are interested as we will add additional sessions if there is demand!
The next group Foundations starts Thurs. Aug. 17th. Sign up at clients.mindbodyonline.com/cl…. Email us re. options for private sessions!
If you have previous CrossFit experience and are moving to Squamish you have two options for getting started with us. Please consider that we program slightly differently than most CrossFit gyms and there are many movements and variations that may be unfamiliar to you. If you are relatively new to CrossFit we recommend completing our Foundations classes as this option will give you a thorough overview of our coaching cues and the movements we do that are specific to our programming. If you have more extensive experience and feel confident with your technical skills we will have you complete an orientation session with you at no cost. This will allow us to learn about your skills and teach you the movements that are unique to our programming. If you are unsure where you fit and to get started please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love having visitors from other CrossFit gyms. If you will be in the Squamish area and would like to drop into a class please check out our schedule for availability and contact us at email@example.com. Let us know where you are visiting from, how long you have been CrossFitting and which class(es) you would like to come to. We will sign you in to reserve your spot. For current members at other CrossFit gyms we charge $10 per class or you can buy a shirt!
