Fundamentals Course for those who are new to CrossFit
New members that do not have prior CrossFit experience at a registered affiliate will go through our On-Ramp course before joining our regular CrossFit classes.
During On-Ramp you will learn the fundamental movements of CrossFit + ways to modify workouts for your personal abilities. Safety & proper form is our priority.
Our On-Ramp program is 4 sessions with our head coach. These sessions are roughly 1 hour, & take place either 1-on-1 or in a small group, depending on if there's other new members signing up at the same time. After your 4th session, you will roll right into a membership so that you can start coming to regular CrossFit classes.
We start with a consultation. During your consult we will give you a tour/our spiel, discuss some things, answer any questions you may have, & potentially set up your account. This is typically also when we schedule your 4 sessions (our On-Ramp class times vary month by month), & set up your membership.

Being made up of constantly-varied, functional movements, CrossFit is a training philosophy that coaches people of all shapes and sizes to improve their physical well-being, strength and cardiovascular fitness in a hardcore yet accepting and encouraging environment.
A typical class period at CFA has 4 elements: brief, warm up, strength work, and workout of the day (WOD). Our classes start out with the brief, which is when the coach gathers everyone around to go over the day's programming. Next, the coach leads the class through an intentional warm-up. From there, the coach guides the class through the workout(s), checking in with athletes individually, providing cues/corrections/feedback, enforcing scaling in order to maintain the desired stimulus/intensity, overseeing the class as a whole throughout the duration (60 minutes), & prioritizing safety. Everything we do is scalable, so everyone can join in, despite their fitness level.

Despite appearances, CrossFit and Yoga are perfect partners. Incorporate yoga into your training regimen to improve flexibility, mobility, balance, intentional breaths, strengthen stabilizer muscles, expose imbalances, and reduce injury risk.
You needn’t be super flexible or possess a Zen master’s level of concentration. Yoga is a lot like CrossFit in that it is scalable! You don’t fit the pose; the pose fits you. And if you do not do CrossFit, you can still benefit from our Yoga classes, and are more than welcome! Our yoga instructor walks and talks the class through the flow, showing what to do, and thoroughly/understandably explaining as they go, while offering modifications and providing props/hands-on help when needed.
