  1. I am interested in coming back to CrossFit after being out of it for years. I was wondering if I should take the on ramp class. Also is there a student discount?

    1. That depends on how long you’ve been out and how far along you were when you left.

      If you still remember how to do all of the lifts, and can use self control and not over do it or lift too much (give yourself a chance to ease back into it), then you can probably come right back to the regular classes. I’d schedule a time with an instructor to evaluate your technique and determine if you should return to regular classes.

      Or, if you need significant review and a chance to ease back into our vigorous training, then the On Ramp is always a good way to review, get a good work out and get reconditioned and ready.

      Call or email us to talk about it. Don’t be shy. We’re pretty good guys.

    2. A general rule of thumb is if you can look at the whiteboard and be relatively comfortable with the workouts, and if you are relatively comfortable and competent at the Olympic Lifts, you can probably forego the On Ramp. In all of our classes, you’ll be coached by a CrossFit L1 Coach. It’s a better idea to always try the On Ramp first.

      A safe way to find out would be to go ahead and register for an On Ramp session and the coach will let you know if you should be in the regular classes or not. Either way, you’ll get a little brush up and a good workout.

      For specific On Ramp questions or customized scheduling of On Ramp, email Shannon[AT]Fit901[DOT]com.
