  • BASICS - This class is for participants that are new to CrossFit and want to learn the fundamental movements needed to advance their training. The classes will be kept small to ensure participants get the attention needed to learn the technical aspects of the fundamental CrossFit movements.   
  • WOD - (workout of the day) this class is geared towards participants that have experience with CrossFit and/or a basic understanding of the movements and terminology. Workouts are universally scalable to accommodate participants of all fitness levels.   
  • OPEN GYM - This will be a dedicated time for members to come in to practice skills, movements, mobility, etc. An instructional WOD will not occur during this time, but a coach will be present for questions and feedback on form. Open gym provides an opportunity for anyone who is looking to work on skills that they may not have enough time to focus on during a regular WOD class.


Join our CrossFit coaches for a series of FREE strength seminars throughout the semester. Each class will focus on one main movement - squats, deadlifts, presses, power cleans, and snatches.  
Seminars will include:

  • Instructional teaching on correct movement patterns
  • Exercise progressions
  • Causes of faulty movements
  • Personalized feedback and individualized technique development
