How will I start my CrossFit Program?
CrossFit in Park Ridge offers their clients a Fundamentals Course (beginner CrossFit program designed for everyone) . In 4 weeks, we will teach you all fundamental movements needed in order to perform the full range of high intensity CrossFit workouts safely and effectively. Because you are still beginning, our fundamentals class is designed to go over each movement in a slower yet more detail-oriented pace than a normal CrossFit class. In this critical learning period, you are given more instructional time and personal attention by our coaches.
Fundamentals Courses run 2 days a week for 4 consecutive weeks for a total of 8 sessions. This course is offered at 7:30pm every Tuesday and Thursday. In each session, you will go through a full warm up, mobility, skills and drills, learn new movements and perform a full CrossFit workout.
If the Fundamentals Course is not convenient or you wish to be in a smaller or private group, Crossfit 88 offers an 8 session intro program. Call us to discuss this program in detail.
