There are a few ways to get started with us. You can come by our gym anytime to say hi, observe a class, meet our coaches, see our facility and sign up for Fundamentals.

What can I expect on my first day?
We know CrossFit can be very intimidating to someone of their first day, so don’t worry, your first day will be focused on getting you use to our gym. You will be led through a warm up of basic movements, taught some new basic skills, and then given a workout in which the intensity will be completely personalized for you. If you feel confident in your fitness ability you can go as hard as you can, however if are not used to working out you will be encouraged to take it at your own pace.
Can I check out the gym first before committing to anything? Yes! Come check us out for FREE! Email us or fill out our form so we can contact you and get something set up for you. Please check out our Coaches Page to learn more about the Endzone coaches.

What’s a WOD?
It is the “Workout of the Day”. This workout could be a “named” workout, developed and described on the national site, however most of the time it will be a workout we have programmed here. Our programming is based on years of experience and the overall needs of our clientele. It is all part of the “constant variation” philosophy of CrossFit.
What happens in an Olympic Lifting class?
Part of CrossFit is learning the Olympic Lifts - the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. You will get exposure to the lifts during CrossFit classes and will have the opportunity to work on these lifts. To continue building on these lifts, our Olympic Lifting classes focus on instructing and improving the technical execution of the Snatch, Clean and Jerk, and other related lifts. Lifting classes help improve explosiveness and power and gives you a better foundation of overall strength. We drill technique, efficiency, and coordination with the lifts and we laugh a lot! Programming varies each class and is on a 4 week cycle. You can attend class at any point during the cycle. Please visit our Coaches page to learn more about our Olympic Lifting coaches.
