FAQ

COMMON QUESTIONS

Have a question about CTOWN CrossFit? Wow, we must be great mind readers. Hopefully, we can answer a few for you in the FAQs below. If not, feel free to contact us and we’ll reply back as soon as we can.
What Is Crossfit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Since then it has evolved to be an all inclusive fitness program for people of any athletic capability. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, sports, and life all reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our armed forces, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

I'm new to CrossFit. What should I expect?

We have a great program for people who are new to CrossFit - we call it CTOWN Fundamentals. After you come in for your free one-on-one fitness assessment and decide you'd like to take the next steps forward in your fitness journey, we'll enroll you in CTOWN Fundamentals. This course is typically one-on-one unless you'd like to bring in a friend or two to train with you. You will train with one of our world-class coaches who will become your fitness/lifestyle Coach for Life. We're not about the short term stuff - we are preparing you to get fit for good this time! For more information about CTOWN Fundamentals, visit our Training Programs page.

Is CrossFit dangerous?

In short, yes CrossFit can be dangerous. But not in the ways you might believe. With inexperienced coaches, shoddy equipment, and the wrong attitude, CrossFit can be very dangerous – but so can riding your bike or driving your car. The experienced and proven CrossFit coaches you’ll find at CTOWN CrossFit will ensure that you’re training in the safest most effective and efficient way possible.

What's a WOD?

A WOD is the workout of the day. We program a different WOD every day. This is only 1 of the strange words you'll hear when you come in for your first free session. CrossFitters have a lot of interesting lingo. But don't worry about learning that all now. We'll send you an email when you get signed up that'll tell you everything you need to know.

What is your drop in policy?

If you have been CrossFitting for at least 6 months, have completed at least 50 workouts and are familiar with Olympic lifts you can come to any CF, FITCON or Combatives class at either Downtown (DTF) or Fairview Park (FVP).

Please note that we have other classes on the schedule but may not allow drop-ins to those. We do not allow drop-ins to Open Gym unless you are a CF L1.

Full Schedule - please pay attention to the location on the schedule. You can use the drop-down filter at the top of the page to limit by location.

On the Class Calendar, click directly on the class slot that you want to drop-in to. You will then be presented with payment options for single or multi-class passes.

As part of the process, please be sure to sign your drop-in agreement and waiver of liability.

If by chance you have been CrossFitting less than 6 months, we prefer that you schedule a semi-private session where we can have an additional coach in class to give you extra attention. The fee for this is $39 and we would like at least 48 hours notice for scheduling purposes by emailing larry@ctowncrossfit.com. We are very enthusiastic about welcoming visitors, we just want to make sure it’s a great experience for you and the rest of the class.
