Your first workout at CrossFit Rampage will likely be a scheduled 1-on-1 intro session. Therefore you won’t be thrown into a class of veteran CrossFitters making you feel like the newbie. Rather, it’ll just be you and the coach!
Ok, lets fast forward… what happens when you’re done with all the 1-on-1 sessions (there fore 4 of them) and it’s actually time to start workout out with the classes?
Will you be nervous about your first workout? Worried about not knowing what will happen when you walk in on day 1? Butterflies, because you’re sure that everyone in the class is going to be a firebreathing fitness monster and you’ll look dazed and confused? Well don’t be. It won’t be like this at all. As a matter of fact, most of us are nervous about every single workout we do, and very few of us are that fitness monster that you’re worried about. CrossFit classes are mainly made up of your normal every day citizens, from school teachers, students, doctors, retired factory workers etc. looking for better health and fitness. Here is a short list of things to know about your 1st wod (workout of the day) to help you calm those butterflies that are multiplying in your stomach.
1. Wear moveable clothes. Athletic shoes, gym shorts, and a t-shirt. Doesn’t have to be fancy, as there is no dress code. Also, bring a water bottle… a big one.
2. Even people who have been doing this awhile still aren’t masters at the movements, we’re always learning too.
3. The coach for the given class will direct everyone on what to do from the warm up to the workout to the cool down. Our coaching motto is to never let anyone feel like they don’t know what they should be doing at any point in the class.
4. You will warm up and the coach will make sure you are comfortable with all the movements before the workout starts.
5. Everyone does the same workout (aside from adjustments made for different skill levels).
6. Everyones’ name is written on the whiteboard and everyone starts the workout at the same time, on 3,2,1,..GO!
7. Finish the workout as quickly as possible with good form. We’ll be there to make sure of it.
8. Your result (time finished, or rounds complete) is usually written on the whiteboard if you so choose to do so. We encourage recording scores so if we repeat the same workout in the future you can measure your progress.
