Optional, but recommended, a Free Intro session is a chance to chat with a coach and try out a workout prior to parting with any of your hard-earned cash! We offer indoor, outdoor, and Zoom versions of Free Intro. Athletes who have attended CrossFit classes regularly for more than 6 months may drop in to an All Levels class free as an alternative to Free Intro.
Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of fitness level do I need to start?
There is absolutely no minimum fitness level required to begin training with us. You just need the intention to give it your best, and the ability to set aside your ego and work hard. Clear eyes, full hearts. That’s it.
Can I cancel a contract membership?
We understand that life happens! Contract memberships can be cancelled at any time; the cancellation fee is just the amount you saved with the contract deal. For example, if you signed up for our 3 month 3x/week intro special for $199/month and the regular 3x/week price is $219/month, if you have to cancel after two months, you’ll pay 2*$20 = $40 cancellation fee.
Will I get bulky?
CrossFit typically produces muscle definition (often referred to as “tone”), but doesn’t typically cause you to grow huge muscles. It produces healthy, athletic bodies – think Jessica Biel or Channing Tatum. Here’s a great article about the CrossFit bulkiness myth.
Can I skip Level 1?
Existing CrossFit athletes who have been taking class regularly at another location for at least 6 months may test directly out of our Level 1 program.
How long do athletes typically spend in Level 1?
Everyone’s different, but expect to spend a minimum of 6 weeks in Level 1 classes.
Is CrossFit dangerous?
In short: no more than any other physical pursuit, whether it’s running, playing soccer, or even yoga! There is an inherent risk to participating in any physical activity, and injuries do sometimes happen. However, the benefits of physical activity far outweigh the risk of participation.
We are dedicated to keeping our athletes safe. Our coaches are always keeping a close eye on form and making sure everyone is moving well. We require everyone to begin in our Level 1 program to learn how to move safely in a small class setting, and scale correctly for their strength and ability level. We are not a “no quitting” gym: if something hurts or is otherwise wrong, we will pull you out of the workout.
Our coaches strike the difficult balance between pushing athletes who need motivation, and pulling back athletes who are pushing themselves to the point of injury.
Can I cancel at any time?
All of our monthly memberships auto-renew for convenience, but the commitment is month-to-month. We don’t do contracts: you can cancel at the end of any month.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes! We offer a 10% discount to the following athletes —
NYPD, FDNY, EMS, Armed Forces
Full time student* or full time teacher
Family Discount (10% off each additional family member)
Please note that discounts can’t be combined.
* Must show ID and class schedule OR certificate of enrollment specifying full-time status of at least 12 credit hours.
Isn't CrossFit super intimidating?
We totally get it! It can absolutely seem that way the first time you walk into the gym. But we absolutely promise that everyone here is super friendly and they all had a first day when THEY were super intimidated to start… and if you just go for it you’ll be over the intimidation factor in no time at all!
CrossFit is an all-encompassing open-source fitness movement involving gymnastics, weightlifting, kettlebells, cardiovascular & metabolic training, strongman exercises, running, rowing, jumping, and just about anything else of which the human body is capable. CrossFit is sometimes called “the sport of fitness” for its ability to engage and delight.
The goal of CrossFit is to improve your general physical preparedness, or the base level of fitness with which you approach any physical challenge. It is accessible and scalable, meaning that regardless of your current fitness level, it will work for you. We currently have clients who are big, small, young, old, and everywhere in between!
CrossFit gives you a strength and conditioning base that comes in handy in a thousand different ways, from hauling groceries to your walk-up apartment, to dominating your soccer league, to setting you up for self-sufficiency as you age.
We like to say we’re training for life: our aim is to get you feeling strong, vital, and ready to take on any challenge that comes your way.
You have quite a few options for getting and staying in shape these days. Why choose us? Here are a few reasons!
WE’RE COACHES, NOT TRAINERS
Our coaches are professionals who have dedicated their careers to the accumulation of knowledge about the human body and all the amazing athletic things of which it is capable. They are here to guide you on your health and fitness journey with the highest standards and utmost integrity and care.
OUR APPROACH IS INDIVIDUAL & HOLISTIC
We’re here to help you reach your fitness goals, and to guide you towards long term health and happiness. We meet you where you are, taking into account your experience level, how often you work out, your age, what you’re eating, how you’re sleeping, how much stress you’re under, what your movement patterns look like, and what mobility restrictions you have. We aim to get you fit and healthy now, and keep you fit and healthy for a lifetime. And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about looking better naked: that’s a fortunate side-effect!
CROSSFIT IS FUN!
Every day you train with us, you’ll complete a different workout and learn something new. You’ll discover things you love, things you hate, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll never be bored!
