Both the CrossFit and Parkour On-Ramp intro courses emphasize general physical preparedness, a term used to describe one's ability to adapt and perform at any moment in any environment. The CrossFit fitness methodology utilizes a wide range of equipment and techniques, including anything from rowing machines to sprints to Olympic weightlifting apparatuses. In each CrossFit session, students take part in an eclectic routine under the watchful eye of an expert Primal Fitness trainer. Parkour, or the art of movement, explores the mastery of body control in the context of everyday circumstances and obstacles. During Parkour classes, students hone the fundamentals of jumping, landing, rolling, and more, all in an effort to prep for more-difficult stunting down the line.
CrossFit and Parkour On-Ramps are set up for four consecutive days of training, from Monday–Thursday. CrossFit gets the body moving in the mornings (7:15 a.m.–8:15 a.m.) or afternoons (12 p.m.–1 p.m.), and Parkour leaps out in the work-friendly evening slot (6 p.m.–7 p.m.). Check out the schedule for CrossFit here and the one for Parkour here.
- If James Bond just jogged and lifted weights, he'd probably be dead. But 007 and his fellow action movie heroes somehow acquired the ability to shimmy up walls, leap from rooftops and soar over scaffolding to capture evildoers. These are feats the average shmo can manage, too -- even without the stuntmen and special effects -- with enough trips to Primal Fitness. – Vicky Hallett, Washington Post
- Primal Fitness will be unlike any gym you've ever stepped into, which is why it's better. – Jim B., Yelp
