1. Sign up here for a free trial session and you’ll be able to get a feel for what CrossFit East River is all about. Our coaches will meet with you, discuss your fitness goals, and put you through the Workout Of the Day (WOD) or through a baseline workout. All workouts will be scaled to each individual athlete’s skill level.
2. If you’re new to CrossFit, you’ll then complete our Foundations program after you sign up for a membership. Foundations is held on Saturdays in a 2-hour group seminar, or through 2 private sessions. Once you sign up for a membership, please email us to let us know you’ll be in Foundations that week!
3. After you graduate Foundations, you’ll be a full-fledged CFER member! You’ll be able to attend the daily WODs, which is where the magic really happens.
What is Foundations?
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.
When is Foundations?
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!
I’m a total gym rat already, do I NEED Foundations?
Yes. This is generally non-negotiable, but if you can demonstrate knowledge, safety and efficiency of the movements in our programming – including the Olympic lifts – you might be able to test out of Foundations. Ask a coach during your free trial class!
What should I bring?
Wear comfortable workout clothes and bring a positive attitude. Yup, that’s it! We have lockers and cubbies for you to stash your belongings during class. (Bring a lock if you want to.)
Can I work out on my own in your gym after Foundations?
Yes, we offer Open Gym time daily.
