Foundations of CrossFit Training
At CrossFit APx the safety and success of our athlete members is the top priority. To ensure that our new members get of to a great start we have them enroll in our ‘Foundations of CrossFit’ classes. This is where you will work with your CrossFit Certified Coach to gain familiarity with our movements. Regular CrossFitting is transformational to mind, body and health and learning the exercise’s is where the results begin.
Completion of all four Fundamentals classes are mandatory before attending any CrossFit Classes. Fundamentals are included with membership and there is not an extra charge for them.
The Foundations curriculum is sequential and attendance is fundamental to gaining the necessary knowledge and technique of the exercises performed during our CrossFit WOD (Workout Of the Day) classes.
