What is Foundations?orig
Foundations is our beginner’s course at CrossFit East River. The goal of Foundations is not to turn you into Rich Froning but simply to set you up for long-term training success.

  • Instructed by a CrossFit L-1 and Olympic Weightlifting Certified trainers
  • 8 sessions over one month
  • Open to everyone
  • Technique intensive
  • Includes a WOD (workout of the day)
  • Leaves you feeling sweaty and great

When is Foundations?
You may attend afternoon or evening sessions, or both! The order of the sessions doesn’t matter. It is possible to graduate Foundations in as little as two weeks. If you graduate early, you may begin attending regular WODs. You must complete at least 8 Foundations sessions during your first month.

  • Monday/Wednesday: 12:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday/ Thursday: 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m.

Is CrossFit for me?
Yes, absolutely! CrossFit is scalable and adaptable for everyone, no matter your level of fitness or your age. Make no mistake, though: CrossFit isn’t easy. Like anything, if you want real results, you’ll need to put in hard work and be committed. Lucky for you, CrossFit is constantly varied and a TON of fun!

Will CrossFit make me bulky?
No. Ladies, give this a read. Ladies also read this.

I’m a total gym rat already, do I NEED Foundations?
Yes. This is non-negotiable.

What should I bring?
Wear comfortable workout clothes and bring a positive attitude. Yup, that’s it! We have storage for you to stash your belongings during class.

Can I work out on my own in your gym?
We currently do not offer open gym sessions.
