Q: I have heard CrossFit is dangerous, is it safe?

A: We have knowledgeable coaches who instruct every class to make sure athletes are moving with proper form and in using the equipment safely. We encourage athletes to start off slow and light. We want our athletes to push themselves once we have an understanding of their athletic endurance. LEAVE your ego at the door and listen to the coach, you will be safe.


Q: I am new to the area and looking for a new box, would I be able to try it out for a few classes before committing to a membership?

A: We offer free trials for our express fundamentals but unfortunately we no longer offer free trial classes for our regular WOD's. However if you want to try out a class or two as a drop-in for our regular WOD and you decide we are a good fit we will gladly credit your drop-in payments towards a membership.
