Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What will my first time in your gym be like?
Fantastic. One of our awesome coaches will give you a tour of the facilities, we’ll sit down with you and walk through your goals, help with nutrition, and help you select the right plan. From there we’ll do a quick fitness assessment with you, and we’ll walk through what you can expect from FSC and our coaches.
Why is your gym more expensive than other gyms?
Everything you need is provided. Think of your dedicated coach as a personal trainer; there every class to make sure your safe, doing the movements correctly, and that the weight your using is appropriate. We provide the workouts, the warm-up and cool down, and of course the equipment. All you need to do is show up and get down. More importantly:

What’s your drop-in policy?
We love nothing more than having visitors from out of town come workout with us!
If you are just passing through, we charge a drop in fee of $20 per day for one to two days. Plan on working out for three to five days? Our Drop In Weekly Pass for $50 is the better option.
Arriving 15 minutes before a scheduled class time allows us to have you sign our waiver and show you around our gym. You can find our class schedule online by going Here.

What exactly is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness program that will change your life. By it’s definition, it uses “constantly varied, functional movement performed at a relative high intensity”. As a truly functional program, the difficulty level of our daily workouts is designed to be increased or decreased, depending upon the individual and is referred to as scaling (up or down). This makes the workouts doable by anyone.
Daily workouts could include things such as core conditioning, rowing, sprinting, gymnastics, lifting, etc… with equipment such as medicine balls, slam/d balls, kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, pull-up bars, boxes, abmats, dip bars, benches, and more. All of our workouts are designed to improve your overall flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, and agility.
I’m not in very good shape… can I do CrossFit?
The very first thing you will discover is that CrossFit does not discriminate. Whether you are young, older, small or big, just completed your 50th marathon, are recovering from injury, or walking the dog is the only exercise you’ve had in years, we will help you achieve your fitness goals.
One of the things that makes CrossFit so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, school and backyard athletes, students, business owners, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it. CrossFit bodies – our bodies – come in every imaginable size, shape and age; and yet, our workouts every day are designed for anyone to do them.
Yes, anyone, including you.
I heard that CrossFitter’s have their own language, can you help me with the terms?
We have acronyms, nicknames for workouts, and abbreviations for a lot of things. The goods news is, this link that will help get you started – http://greatist.com/fitness/ultimate-guide-crossfit-lingo. Word of caution: No need to be intimidated by this…it will take a little time to get to know everything. If you’re confused or unsure, ask the coach to explain.
