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, you’ll be able to begin our Foundations program, which meets three times over the course of one 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?
Foundations is intended to be completed in one week. The order of the sessions doesn’t matter – you can start on a Tuesday or Saturday. You must complete the 3 Foundations sessions during your first month.
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 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.
