In Foundations classes, instructors introduce first-timers to CrossFit movements and vernacular. Foundations classes are a pre-requisite to the Crossfit classes and meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 8am and 8pm; first-time Crossfitters must complete one month of the Foundations course before enrolling in the standard Crossfit classes. Once familiar with workouts and techniques, students attend regular CrossFit classes throughout the week, in which coaches lead high-intensity routines of functional exercises. The constantly varied and scalable workouts may include gymnastics, running, and weightlifting. See the class schedule.
Trainer Chelsea Rupp warns all her potential students that CrossFit might become an addiction. When she first started training five years ago, she was astounded and enthralled by its challenging and effective workouts, and was instantly hooked. After receiving her Level 1 CrossFit certification, Chelsea and her partners founded her own CrossFit gym—CrossFit GSL—where she and a team of enthusiastic trainers lead students of all levels in the high-intensity, ever-changing routines. Surrounded by the colorful flags and bright walls of their studio, the trainers guide students through warm-ups and functional workouts, scaling the drills' intensity to accommodate varying fitness levels. They encourage each student to push past their previously set boundaries as they heave barbells and kettlebells, jump rope, hop on large wood blocks, and toss medicine balls. The supportive instructors dole out nutritional guidance as well as postworkout recovery tips, such as techniques for therapeutic stretches and tips for mending shirts torn apart by bulging muscles.
