STEP ONE: Intro to CrossFit, must be scheduled
Once you’ve decided you want to get into the best shape of your life and be a part of a community of like-minded people, it’s time to book a Student Consultation/Intro to CrossFit.
Do it alone or bring a friend along to your 60-minute free intro session that explains the CrossFit methodology and evaluates your current level of fitness. More specifically, you will become acquainted with our application of the CrossFit method.
STEP 2: Personal Training
We are a school of fitness, it is going to look a lot different than group aerobics or group bodypump or a bootcamp or any other group exercise class.
Yes, you will eventually have the option to graduate to CrossFit group classes; however, before that we need to ensure that you are both competent in the CrossFit movements and fit enough to safely join group classes.
With that in mind, you will start off by completing 10-15 one-on-one or two-on-one private training sessions, where you will be coached by both an instructor, as well as their apprentice coaches. Our instructors are some of the first CrossFit coaches who brought CrossFit New Jersey 6 years ago; their experience is second to none.
During your 10-15 personal training sessions (the number depends on your personal fitness level and physical abilities), you will become familiar with the CrossFit movements (30-40 movements), things like Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, gymnastics and rowing. You will also learn about mobility, injury prevention and nutrition.
The purpose of doing personal training prior to group classes is three-fold:
First, CrossFit is incredibly technical – it’s like learning an entirely new sport – so the same way you wouldn’t throw someone off the street onto the Varsity swimming team, we don’t throw people who have never done clean and jerks and snatches and pull ups and rope climbs right into the intimidating fire of group classes. Instead, we take the time to properly teach you the movements so you’re confident and safe in your abilities by the time you begin group classes.
Second, one-on-one personal training allows us to address your individual needs, deficiencies, weaknesses and injuries. Everybody needs to work at a different pace, and we want to keep you injury-free to increase your longevity.
Third, we believe relationships with the people around you are going to enrich your life, and your relationship with your coach is no exception. We want to get to know you, your fitness goals, what’s going on in your life, and what you need from us to help you succeed.
$550 for 10 sessions (one-on-one personal training)
$350 for 10 sessions (two-on-one personal training)
After both your Intro Session and your first 10 private sessions are complete, we’ll re-evaluate (evaluation is based on proven benchmarks) and decide together how many more sessions you may need in order to reach our graduation requirements.
