First off, who is this class for?20150914_200923

All fitness levels from couch potato to avid gym goer. All movements have modifications and we are happy to work with all abilities. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

During the Foundations class we are going to want to know a little more about you. We will be conducting assessments in order to understand you, your personal goals, current health, and concerns. Once we have some understanding of your needs, we can help you achieve your goals.
