What is Foundations?
This is an introductory course in which you will work 1:1 with a coach for 4 hours total. We will explain the why behind our program, expose you to some of the foundational CrossFit movements and teach you all you will need to know about doing CrossFit at DeNovo. Not only does this course teach you what you need to know, we find that it also is highly effective in helping our new members walk into their first class feeling comfortable and confident rather than intimidated and lost.
I work out a lot, do I still need to do Foundations?
Having a strong fitness background will be an excellent start for joining our program and we still require all members new to CrossFit to go through Foundations. As mentioned above, we do not just go over movements; this is an opportunity to learn all about DeNovo as well as have ample time to get acquainted to your new coaches and help you feel confident going into your first class.
I have done CrossFit before, do I still need to go through Foundations?
As long as "I have done CrossFit before" means you have done an intro course (element/on ramp/foundations/etc.) at another CrossFit gym and were an active member for at least 3 months, you are eligible to do a Test-Out (1 hour long session to get you all set up at DNCF and officially welcome you to our community.) After purchasing your session, a coach will be in contact with you with you within 24 hours to schedule your Test-Out.
How much does Foundations cost?
Foundations costs $135 and you will have 30 days to complete your sessions. If you finish all 4 sessions before the month is over, you can use the rest of your month to join classes. (If you purchase Foundations on August 13th and finish your last session on August 20th, you can take classes until September 13th, then start paying your membership.)
What should I wear?
Clothes that you are prepared to sweat in, athletic shoes and bring a water bottle.
I am joining with my partner/friend, can we do Foundations together?
Definitely! We are able to do partner Foundations for couples or friends. Any more than 2 people in a session can make it take longer due to scheduling as well as more conversation, so we recommend keeping it to buddy vs. group. Cost is still $135 per person for partner Foundations.
What if I have pre-existing injuries or limitations?
No problem! We can work with you and adjust any workout to fit your needs while still giving you the best value possible. The Foundations program is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with you one on one to figure out a specific plan moving forward as it relates to your injuries/limitations.
Can I try a class before committing to Foundations?
Absolutely! We allow all new to CrossFit athletes a FREE class on Fridays.
We are SO excited to have you join our DeNovo family! Purchase your Foundations Sessions below and a coach will be in contact with you within 24 hours to schedule your first session.
