Getting Started

basicsThe Riptide CrossFit training methodology is unlike any other gym class, bootcamp, or fitness program. We implement various tools to help our clients reach their fitness goals. Our program is comprised of Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, kettlebells and basic gymnastics movements—we don’t do machines, and we don’t do gimmicks.

We focus our attention on being extraordinarily effective at coaching our clients to move efficiently to realize their athletic potential and achieve their fitness goals as quickly as possible. To ensure that all of our clients are provided with every opportunity to succeed, we require everyone to get started at Riptide CrossFit in one of three ways: CrossFit Fundamentals Course, Private Coaching, or by Testing Out.

CrossFit Fundamentals Course

Our CrossFit Fundamentals Course is designed for individuals who want to train and workout in one of our ongoing group CrossFit classes. In this class, you will be exposed to our movement curriculum in a group format. Movement techniques will be drilled as well as a progressive introduction to the intensity levels that are inherent in our group classes. The Basic Workshops meet 3 times a week for 2 consecutive weeks. Please note, if you have pre-existing injuries or are deconditioned, additional private coaching sessions may be required before moving into our fast-paced group classes.

Private Coaching: Introduction to CrossFit Series

Are you ready to start doing CrossFit but can’t attend our CrossFit Fundamentals Course because of scheduling constraints? If so, sign up for our Introduction to CrossFit series, which is four hours of one-on-one coaching with one of our coaches. During these sessions, you will work with your coach to build your general fitness base and gain familiarity with our movements with the goal to prepare you to join our fast-paced group classes. You will find the greatest success starting CrossFit with private coaching if your needs or goals include:

  • weight loss and improved body composition
  • extra accountability
  • you are new to exercise
  • you have specific performance oriented goals (triathlon, basketball, etc.)
  • you are pregnant or have just had a child
  • you have an orthopedic injury

Your coach will tailor workouts specifically for your current fitness level and progress you at the proper pace for you. Please note, if you have pre-existing injuries or are deconditioned, additional private coaching sessions may be required before moving into our fast-paced group classes.

Price: $175 (4 sessions).

Testing Out

If you feel confident and comfortable performing basic gymnastics movements (i.e. pull-ups, dips, handstands) power lifts and Olympic lifts (ie. clean and jerk, snatch, deadlift, squat), you can request to test out of the CrossFit Fundamentals Course Workshop and gain immediate access to our Group Coaching Sessions. Call Us to schedule a time to come in and demonstrate your competence with one of our coaches. We have extremely high standards, so if you are unsure as to whether you are a candidate for testing out, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of our Basics Workshop.

Price: $75 for a 1-hour test.

If you think you are a candidate for testing out, call us at 754-227-9087
