Foundations Training: £60, 2 x 1.5 hour classes
Before starting CrossFit, we require every member to complete Foundations Training , before moving onto Beginner classes.
The Foundations course is broken into two, one and a half hour classes. Class A introduces you to the principles of lifting and Barbell movements. Class B teaches you core control and the Bodyweight/ Gymnastic movements you will be using again and again in classes.
We presume you have no prior knowledge and pretty much everyone starting CrossFit is in the same boat. You won’t be made to look or feel stupid and no-one will be screaming or shouting at you and none of the training is heavy, we simply hand you a piece of PVC plastic pipe and teach you how to lift; nothing scary, just an introduction to the movements and techniques, at a pace you can follow. We teach you how to scale the gymnastic movements, so that everyone has an achievable starting point – don’t worry, we know that most people won’t have done gymnastics since they were a kid!
We will not be surprised or shocked if you have mobility or flexibility issues, we estimate about 30% of people starting training will have some sort of flexibility limitation, don’t worry, we’ll help you fix it. If you have a pre-existing injury, then this is not a problem, lots of people do, just make sure you notify the coaches when you arrive and we can work around it.
