CrossFit involves many exercises that demand both practice and professional coaching to learn and perform safely. It is of paramount importance to understand and practice good technique and form mechanics before ramping up the intensity. Our Free Skills Classes provide members with the opportunity to work on different movements with a coach in a small-group setting. Each class covers the content outlined below and lasts approximately two hours, concluding with a short workout.
