What is the Foundations Course?
The Foundations Course is split up into four (4), 60-80 minute sessions in a small group setting headed by one of the Gardens CrossFit Coaches. Foundations will meet Tuesday and Thursday @7:30pm, for 2 weeks. All 4 sessions must be completed before you can attend the regularly scheduled CrossFit classes. Please reserve your spot as space is limited. If you are unable to attend these sessions, please contact us to schedule another time with a Gardens CrossFit coach. We do offer private, one-on-one courses as well. There will be an additional fee associated with this.
Why are there Foundations?
If you are new to CrossFit, the worst thing you can do is let a coach throw you into classes without knowing the basics elements of what we do. That’s how you get Hurt. it is important that you learn the basics of each movement, think of it as laying the foundation of a building. It’s crucial to proceed in your CrossFit career, and practicing safe technique. Our staff also needs to see how your body moves and to make sure that any deficiencies and/or injuries are identified, not to worsen. The coaches need to set up a mutual understanding of expectations. What you need as an athlete and what we expect as coaches.
What can I expect in the Foundations sessions?
You will learn the nine basic CrossFit movements: Squat, Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Deadlift, Sumo Deadlift High Pull, Medicine Ball Clean, as well as Kettlebell Swings & Cleans, Pull-ups, Box Jumps and more! At the conclusion of your technique session, you will get the opportunity to put those skills into action in a WOD (workout of the day).
Who must complete the Foundations Course?
Anyone new to CrossFit and its methodology, or anyone looking to improve upon their current technique. Let’s face it, we could all use a refresher once in a while!
Upon completion of your Foundations Course you will enter our regular CrossFit class schedule. You are on your way to living your best!
