The course consists of four 1-hour sessions where you’ll be introduced to CrossFit through discussions, movements, and workouts. The first session is free to try and will include an in depth mobility assessment to determine which program is for you. In addition to the first session you will have the option to purchase the remaining three private sessions for $150 or test out (experienced Crossfitters only-Coaches recommendation).
Session 1 – Free Mobility assessment and brief intro WOD (workout of the day)
Session 2 – Shoulder Screen, intro to Overhead Presses, brief workout
Session 3 – Hip Screen, intro to Squatting, brief workout
Session 4 – intro to Deadlifts and Cleans, brief workout and wrap-up
By the end of Basic Training, you should feel much more comfortable with the movements and demands of any workout, and confident that your coach will be able to scale any workout to meet your needs.
WHAT IS BIRTHFIT?
BIRTHFIT is a movement.It’s about expecting and postpartum moms taking charge of their bodies and their decisions, and supporting one another’s journeys—together and apart.
BIRTHFIT is an approach to birth.We challenge the status quo and ask the questions no one else asks. We read, research, experiment, and consolidate all the common sense, time-honored wisdom, and recent studies we can find and present that information to you through various education models. Our pillars are fitness, nutrition, mindset, and connection. We unconditionally support YOU—the birth mom & birth partner—to make the best decision for you and Baby.
BIRTHFIT is a state of readiness.Childbirth is perhaps the most physical, mental, and spiritual experience of a woman’s life. We want you to be ready in body, mind, and spirit for the experience of birth and the lifelong journey that follows.
BIRTHFIT is your support team.We are a team of practitioners, educators, chiropractors, coaches, nutritionists, fellow mamas, men, and women who are involved in our local communities and we are all rooting for YOU.

The founder of Crossfit Greg Glassman once stated, “my greatest fear is living a long life without the functionality to enjoy it”.
We are excited to announce the implementation of a new class called Masters+!
Like it or not, we all get old and will have to deal with the changes associated with the aging process. However, to a very large extent we have control over the degree to which those changes impact our quality of life, because we are only as old as we believe we are.
In summary, attitude plays a huge role in figuring out how to achieve fitness as we get older!
This is a one hour class specifically designed with the needs and goals of both men and women ages 50 years and above. There will be a strong emphasis on gaining strength in the muscles around the joints to prevent and/or reduce pain for areas including hips, knees, and shoulders. Each extensive mobility session will be followed by a brief (5-10 minute) non-competitive workout. The class will meet every Monday and Wednesday at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 11:00am.
We scale to your fitness level, so you get a challenging workout every time. After completing the basic training course, individuals will be prepared to join traditional CrossFit classes. In these classes, participants will be executing a wide variety of movements with a large focus on proper mechanics. We are in no hurry to approach high levels of intensity; everything starts with mechanics and consistency. These classes will be great for beginners as all workouts are easily scalable, or can be made more challenging for experienced members. Movement efficiency is the main objective for everyone. These classes are perfect for individuals looking for a general physical preparedness program and to improve quality of life. We recommend members new to CrossFit to spend at least 6 months in CrossFit classes before looking to jump into more advanced levels.
