If you have signed up for your first ever Northwest CrossFit’s Complete Fit Bootcamp session or are considering doing so, congratulations! We are looking forward to having you join our community. For those who are interested in this program, we want to help you get started and make sure you are comfortable and prepared. If you’d like to give CrossFit a try but aren’t sure what to expect, here’s a quick breakdown of our bootcamp program and how to prepare for your first CrossFit class.
Who Can Do CrossFit?
Many people think CrossFit is only for active athletes and people who are already in shape. We believe CrossFit is for anyone who wants to commit to a healthy lifestyle and functional fitness. We are happy to serve men and women of all fitness levels at Northwest CrossFit.
Starting CrossFit Out of Shape
Many people wonder if they are fit enough to do CrossFit, or fear not being able to keep up with the class. Our CompleteFit Bootcamp is designed for people who want to get a taste of CrossFit and learn what the lifestyle is all about it. It’s geared towards those who are new to CrossFit and haven’t done these types of workouts before. You don’t need to be in top shape, all you need to do is come to class!
Class Format and Workout
At Northwest CrossFit, our bootcamps include warmups and stretching, speed and agility training, and a Workout of the Day. Our bootcamps are typically between 10 and 15 people, which enable you to complete the workout at your own pace but still get one on one attention from our coaches. Athletes are coming in to these bootcamps at different levels of fitness, so we expect people to finish at different times, and we tailor the workout to your current level. This can mean changing the amount of weight or doing modified exercises to fit your personal needs.
The goal of these workouts is to give you the foundation you need to join regular CrossFit training. You will hone your agility, learn the right technique for weight training to avoid injury, and of course, get in a great workout.
How to Prepare and What to Wear to CrossFit
In terms of preparation, make sure you drink lots of water before hand. Wear clothes you are comfortable moving in and shoes that you can run and jump in. The most important thing for our CrossFit Bootcamps is to show up, we’ll do the rest!
