We get it. People throwing weights around? Jumping on to boxes 2 feet in the air? Pullups? Come on. This stuff looks intimidating from the outside. Have you seen these people? You’re intrigued though. You’re curious. You wonder – maybe I could do that. it does look fun, after all but I’m just a little too intimidated by all of the commotion and movements going on…
Well at CrossFit Maelstrom we provide two, excellent options for anyone who wants to learn more about CrossFit.
Fundamentals is an ongoing class that meets every Wednesday at 7:45pm for CrossFit beginners. Two coaches are always present and carefully review every exercise movement that will be performed during that evening’s session. With simple, understandable explanations you’ll walk through demonstrations of each exercise and be shown suitable
options and substitutes based on your particular needs and capabilities. Can’t do a pull-up? Don’t feel bad, most of us couldn’t when we walked in! We’ll show you how to get there while still getting a great workout. Classes last one hour.
Elements is a four session, class structured program designed to introduce you to the basic movements and exercises used in CrossFit. With lots of individualized attention, you’ll participate in thorough demonstrations of each movement and shown how to appropriately substitute (scale) any movement that might present some issue for you. We’ll review all of the jargon you might hear a CrossFitter use, the ‘method behind the madness’ and we’ll review your personal fitness goals. You’ll learn that even the most beginner level athlete can participate and make tremendous progress using the CrossFit method. Contact us for dates and times.
Why participate in Elements or Fundamentals?
In CrossFit you are often asked to push yourself because of the great results that high intensity workouts are proven to yield. All exercise movements, including the ones we use, have potential to cause injury if done with incorrect posture or with incorrect technique. Getting ready for our CrossFit group classes is never a matter of ‘cardio fitness’, more often there is a need to learn to do the movements correctly and a need to fix mobility/flexibilty restrictions that prevent correct movement. Fast tracking yourself into group workouts before you’re ready is a recipe for confusion, disappointment, and possibly injury.
So get up and let’s do this already!
Please contact us at CrossFitMaelstrom@gmail.com if you have any questions or want to schedule a session. We’re excited to hear from you!
