A No-Sweat Intro is a chance for you to come into the gym and have a 20-30 minute chat with one of the coaches. You’ll discuss your fitness goals and we’ll discuss how CrossFit might be able to help you achieve them.
We call it a ‘No-Sweat Intro’ as you won’t actually be working out the first time you come in. You’ll see what a regular CrossFit class looks like and how we structure what we hope will eventually become the best hour of your day! If you like what you see and hear, we can get you started as soon as the next day!
