FAQ’s


What should I expect at my first CrossFit workout?

Your first workout at LETS CrossFit will be a fun and efficient experience. Each class starts with a dynamic warm-up, then it’s skill training, instruction and movement standards for the WOD (workout of the day). When your trainer says “3-2-1 Go!” the challenge begins and our community of athletes push themselves and encourage others to achieve elite fitness.

Athletes that have completed “On-Ramp” with us or at another CrossFit Box may join scheduled WODs. For your first class, please arrive a few minutes early to meet our members, trainers and get to know our box.

What can I expect after my first CrossFit workout?


You will feel successful and part of a community of athletes, many of whom you did NOT expect to be CrossFitters. You’ll have a better understanding of how classes are run and the method behind what we do. And it’s likely you will have learned new things, be a little bit “sore” and excited to come back for more.

What makes LETS CrossFit different from other gyms?



CrossFit is about variance and adaptation. We believe the body is a whole system, and strengthen it as a whole.

Our trainers give you basic diet and nutrition information as well. We believe that nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness and know that how we feed our bodies determines how quickly we achieve the results we want.

Every workout is led by a certified CrossFit trainer and you’re joined by like-minded people who want to be and feel better.


What are some of the exercises/movements we do?


CrossFit teaches 9 Foundational Movements. The mastery of these 9 movements correlate directly to the efficiency of the exercises performed during your workouts and transfer to the development of other skills you see often in WODs. Unfamiliar with any of these exercises? Check out these great videos for demonstrations or see the WOD Blog.

They are:

Air Squat
Front Squat
Overhead Squat
Shoulder Press
Push Press
Push Jerk
Deadlift
Sumo Deadlift High Pull
Medicine Ball Clean

Other movements/exercises include:

Pull Ups
Push Ups
Sit Ups
Jump Rope
Box Jumps
Running/Sprinting
Rowing
Gymnastic Ring Work
Dumbbell Work
Kettlebell Swings
Wall Balls
Static Holds
And various others

While this list may seem foreign or intimidating, please note that every one of them is modifiable and scalable to meet your skill level and needs.

Do I have to be in shape to take CrossFit classes?


No. Really. There is a common misconception that CrossFit is for elite athletes. The truth is that it is for everyone. Sure, we say that we are “forging elite fitness” and we are. This means that you start the journey where you are today. And, if you stay on our path it’s likely that you will get in to the best physical, emotional and psychical shape of your life.

Our community is comprised of competitive athletes, former athletes, working professionals, stay-at-home parents, people that had never stepped foot into a gym and people with physical ailments. Our program is the most efficient, most effective regimen for everyone. Allow us to get you into the best shape of your life.
