Our comprehensive Foundations Program is designed to teach anyone new to the CrossFit methodology how to lift safely and effectively in a group environment. Our knowledgeable coaches breakdown the movements commonly seen in our CrossFit WODs, teaching all the fundamental components in a way that is easy to understand. Each workout in the program builds on the previous workouts, gradually elevating in both complexity and intensity gearing our new members up to joining the main CrossFit class at the completion of the program.
