Many gyms encourage new members or prospects to jump right into classes. That might get more people in their doors faster, but it can also be a recipe for injury. We believe that CrossFit can be incredibly effective and safe for anyone, but only when you build a solid foundation of correct mechanics and technique. Our experience has shown that increasing intensity or load without building this foundation ultimately limits results and can get athletes injured. We require all new CrossFit athletes to complete either Starting Line or Private Track so that we can help you lay the groundwork for success.  

Our next Starting Line kicks off June 15th and will run through June 25th. The class will meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 6 PM. This is a six session series to teach you the fundamentals of CrossFit and get you ready to integrate into regular group classes in a small group environment. We will drill the functional movements that CrossFit is built upon and prepare you for the intensity that our fast-paced group classes will entail. Sessions are comprised of a teaching element, skills practice, and a workout. You will also build a cohort of athletes that will travel the CrossFit journey with you. We can't overstate the importance of community and we begin building it from Day 1. Advance registration is required and class size is limited. Sign up online or email tracie@crossfitcatacombs.com if you have questions.
