Choose Between Two Options
- $59 for four weeks of CrossFit Fundamentals classes and two weeks of regular CrossFit classes (a $329 value)
- $99 for four weeks of CrossFit Fundamentals classes, two weeks of regular CrossFit classes, and a four-week nutrition-and-weight-loss course (a $526 value)
Students meet up to three times per week for CrossFit Fundamentals classes (a $197 value for four weeks). During each session, instructors familiarize students with new and foundational CrossFit skills and movements, while demonstrating how to lift weights safely and efficiently without resorting to driving a forklift into the gym.
After completing the CrossFit Fundamentals course, students can attend an unlimited number of regular CrossFit classes throughout the week for two weeks (a $132 value). During these sessions, instructors lead high-intensity routines that combine gymnastics, weightlifting, sprinting, and jumping. See the online schedule for class times.
The four-week nutrition course gathers groups of eight students or fewer for discussion of how to shop, cook, and eat more healthily. Classes take place Monday and Wednesday from 7:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. A new session starts on the third Monday of each month.
At the CrossFit Memphis training studios, every brow is knit in intense concentration. Students are tussling with dumbbells, sprinting up and down courts, and leaping onto Olympic platforms. These are some of the many exercises that make up the innovative CrossFit program, which eschews monotonous cardio machines in favor of varied, high-intensity circuits of functional movements to keep workouts challenging and engaging. Each workout strives to hit a variety of fitness targets at the same time, including stamina, strength, power, balance, and accuracy.
Certified instructors scale movements to accommodate each student's fitness level and help patrons to keep fit by doling out tips on nutrition, emphasizing lean meats and vegetables instead of marshmallows in the shape of lean meats and vegetables. In addition to CrossFit classes, the studios design specialized classes in strength training and endurance.
Faction Strength and Conditioning
Faction Strength and Conditioning is a CrossFit gym, which means exercisers gather regularly for intense, rigorous workouts that change up every day. Most opt for the regular WOD, or "workout of the day" CrossFit sessions, which might incorporate anything from pull-ups to powerlifting to sprinting, but competitive athletes can train in Competitor and Weightlifting sessions.
Though the gym is characterized by tough, discipline-building routines, coaches make sure everyone feels welcome. Memberships start with three weeks of Fundamentals class, which acclimates newbies to CrossFit's unique challenges and imparts safety principles. And on the gym's FAQ page, the question "Do I need to be in good shape before I start CrossFit?" is answered with a "Psssh…NO!"
