FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
VISITOR OR NEW MEMBER QUESTIONS
Do you accept drop-ins?
Yes. If you can Facebook message us you are coming so we can find out what class you will visit, what your CrossFit experience is like, etc., that would be great. If not, no worries - come on! Drop-in fee is $10.
What does a typical class look like, i.e. what can I expect?
CrossFit classes begin with a warm-up and some foundational movements (to prepare you for the workout to come), strength or gymnastic skill work, and then the Workout of the Day (called a WOD). Classes are set for 1 hour, and you are under the guidance of a coach throughout the whole class.
What if I can't do ________ (pull ups, muscle ups, squat below parallel) or ever picked up a barbell?
EVERYTHING in CrossFit has the ability to be modified to YOUR fitness ability. We can scale the workout so that you can participate and still feel accomplished when you leave.
What equipment or gear do I need to get started?
First, you need you and your willingness to walk in the door. And clothes that allow you to work out comfortably. As you progress, you will find various gear to be helpful (lifting belts, wrist wraps, hand grips, etc.) - but that all can be discovered after we get you started.
What shoes should I wear?
If you only have running shoes or other types of sneakers - then wear what you have! Once you progress, you may want to invest in a pair of flat, cross-training type shoes (examples include the Reebok CrossFit Nano and the Nike Metcon). Should you get more serious about Olympic lifting/barbell, we recommend getting lifting shoes.
Do you offer any other classes besides CrossFit?
We sure do! CFAMM offers Small Group and Personal Training classes.
Do you offer Open Gym?
Beginning Aug. 1, 2018 - we do offer an Open Gym opportunity.
