Welcome to CrossFit Alaska!
New to CrossFit?
Our Foundations Course is exactly what it sounds like – it will be the basis on which you would either begin or continue your health and wellness journey. Through our years of experience, we believe that providing the “foundation” for movement is critical to our athletes’ success and longevity. It also allows for our staff to observe movement patterns and identify areas in which a new athlete may need modifications and additional training. This is offered in a small class format, it is a fun and supportive environment for all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
CrossFit, by definition, is constantly varied, high intensity, functional-movement. It is important to us that all of our new members feel comfortable and prepared to attend our daily classes and in order to do so, we ask that they attend our Foundations Course. In this 4-week course, you will be introduced to CrossFit’s methodology as well as begin to learn the basics of functional movement to include Olympic lifting, rowing, body weight movements, and gymnastics. It is even more important, however, that you learn to perform these movements correctly and safely.
Each class will consist of a warm up, a review of the previous classes’ movements, the teaching/learning of new movements, and a workout. As there will be new movements introduced at every class, it is important that you attend every session. Because you will be an active participant (a very active participant!) in every class please make sure that you are dressed ready to move and that you have a water bottle with you. It would also be a good idea to bring a notebook in order to write down any new movements you learn as well as keep track of the workouts you do in class.
The CrossFit Alaska Foundations Course is an 8 session course that runs over 4 weeks. We meet 2 evenings a week from 6:45-8:00 PM. The cost of this small group course is $200.
