Many people come to our facility in Geneva having seen or observed some crazy CrossFit workout posted on YouTube. Some of those videos scare us too but this doesn’t mean that anyone should avoid or be put off by CrossFit. The needs of the athletes seen in the videos and your own needs differ by degree and not by kind, which means that CrossFit methodology is completely scalable to the individual, no matter your current fitness levels.
Squatting is one such method, useful for every althete and non althletes alike as we all need to squat. In fact, squatting is essential to maintaining functional independence and improving ﬁtness. Squatting is just one example of a movement that is universally valuable and essential yet rarely taught correctly.
For your first class we always suggest to start by trying out a free class. This gives you an opportunity to experience a taste of what CrossFit is all about.
Once you have completed the first session and decided to continue, you can take our fundamentals course. This is an intensive 3-hour introduction to CrossFit which takes place over a weekend.
The emphasis of the fundamentals is on skill development and exposure to our basic movements introducing you to technique and mechanics first, then intensity when we believe you’re ready.
Once you’ve completed the ‘Fundamentals’ course you’ll be ready for our main group training sessions. This is where you’ll conduct various additional skill based work, strength sessions, as well as the main work out of the day (WOD) where you will advance and progress your strength and overall general fitness, whilst learning new skills and achieving goals that you never thought possible.
The Fundamentals course includes one month of membership where you can attend as many classes as you like. We believe that one month is enough time to start to master the movements and see the benefits of CrossFit.
