Taking that first step is the hardest thing to do. We realise this (we have all been there) and that is why we do our best to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Regardless of if you are a seasoned athlete or an absolute novice with no training experience at all, it can be a daunting prospect to start working out in a new gym with people you don’t know. You will be looked after at GEO.
When it comes to training, our focus is on ensuring you learn at a pace that is appropriate for you and that you are training safely with a view to constant improvement.
There are two ways you can start training with us.
If you have previous CrossFit experience and have trained at a CrossFit gym you can jump straight into a class and join up.
Alternatively, if you do not have previous CrossFit experience, then we will need you to complete our CrossFit Foundations Program first.
The CrossFit Foundations Program
The CrossFit Foundations Program is essential for anyone who has no CrossFit training experience. Why? Because we want to set you up for success. We want you to progress and improve, and also avoid injury. Whilst all of our regular classes are coached (you will be shown techniques and how to improve them), we need you to have some understanding of what is being coached.
The program is comprised of 3 x 1 hour sessions of one-on-one coaching at a time that suits you. We start you with movements like squatting, push-ups and pull-ups, and gradually increase the complexity of them as you progress through the 3 sessions. You will be shown and practice the 9 foundational movements of CrossFit. The 9 movements are: air squat, front squat, overhead squat, shoulder press, push press, push jerk, deadlift, sumo deadlift high pull and the medicine ball clean. We will also guide you through movements that build towards the Olympic lifting movements of the snatch and clean and jerk. Every movement can be modified to a level that suits your technical ability and level of fitness. CrossFit is for everyone!
By the time you have completed your 3 sessions, not only will you be raring to go, you will also have a good understanding of the fundamentals of CrossFit training, which will allow for a smooth transition into our regular classes.
Cost – for one person $210 (3 sessions)
Cost – for two people doing the sessions together – $360 (3 sessions)
Prior CrossFit Experience
If you have trained previously at another Box and feel confident and comfortable performing basic gymnastics movements (i.e. pull-ups, dips), Power lifts and Olympic lifts (clean and jerk, snatch, deadlift, squat) then you can jump straight into a regular class.
