Preschool care ($160 per week) is designed for ages three to five and incorporates developmentally appropriate experiences and learning materials as well as outdoor play. Kindergarten care ($145 per week) involves nutritious snacks, computer games, and creative materials that focus on art, science, and more.

The first order of business for Cross Fit Wichita's trainers is to get everyone on a first-name basis; it's commonplace for trainers to encourage a round of handshakes before they read off the day's workout. Community plays a central role in the gym's CrossFit and boot-camp programs, which explains why all new CrossFit members typically begin with On Ramp. This program teaches CrossFit's core movements, such as squats and presses, so clients feel comfortable entering the group WOD classes, also known as the Workout of the Day. These daily-changing workouts favor a dynamic, nonspecialized approach to build all three of the body's metabolic pathways, from the phosphagen pathway that powers high-effort, short-duration activities to the oxidative pathway that drives lower-effort, sustained activity such as distance running and rowing.
This approach also develops CrossFit's 10 recognized physical skills—such as cardiovascular endurance, strength, and agility—that serve as measures of overall fitness. Trainers keep a close eye on every member, adjusting exercises to easier or more challenging versions. This helps clients stay on track to meet their fitness goals, whether they're focused on losing weight, building muscle, or tearing through a T-shirt with a single flex. To further cater their services to clients, trainers never hold them to long-term contracts, and the gym’s warehouse-like setting and low-tech equipment—squat cages, rowing machines, and platforms for box jumps—prevent the pretension that sometimes comes with commercial gyms.
