We welcome you to try a CrossFit Lite class to see how fun – and challenging CrossFit can be!
We are excited to give you the opportunity to get involved with our CrossFit Lite membership. This membership option is specifically aimed at new starters and CrossFit beginners.
CrossFit Lite is what replaced our old inductions/ONRAMP course. The aim is to get you guys involved as soon as you like. There’s no waiting for a group induction or long waits for a membership spot. Instead you can simply make yourself a member and get involved straight away.
A CrossFit Lite workout will have the same principles as a regular CrossFit class (Constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement) except we will focus mainly on Metabolic Conditioning (MetCon) with scaled down weights or body weight movements.
Many people want to experience the fun of CrossFit, but may have reservations about using the barbells. This is understandable since the idea of lifting very heavy weight can sometimes be a little scary.
CrossFit Lite is designed to maximize your fitness by using a variety of different movements and objects to obtain significant strength and cardiovascular health. Each class is different and can include activities like running, rowing, cycling, body weight movements, or using kettlebells, wall balls, or boxes. While we call this CrossFit Lite, don’t be confused that this is easier than a typical CrossFit workout!
THIS IS NOT BOOTCAMP… it’s very important that we stay true to the roots of the CrossFit class experience. You can expect a warm-up where a coach will prepare you for everything you will do in your WOD (Work Out of the Day), you will be introduced and taught new and exciting skills, and there will be a coach with you every step of the way. You will be challenged but we won’t throw anything at you that you can’t handle.
Our “Lite” membership also gives you access to our weightlifting classes where you will learn very important barbell skills. Olympic weightlifting is a huge part of CrossFit, there are two official Olympic weightlifting disciplines, the clean and jerk, and the snatch. Both of these movements involve lifting a weight from the floor to overhead, albeit with very different techniques. During our weightlifting classes one of our qualified and experienced coaches will demonstrate and teach you these techniques to prepare you for our full CrossFit WOD classes.
