CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement, done at high intensity. In simple terms, this means we do a variety of workouts, using movements from gymnastics (body weight movements), weightlifting, and cardio (rowing, running, skiing, and biking). Each workout is performed at a high intensity to make maximal fitness gains.
EXPERIENCE FOUNDATIONS AT ESTLR
CrossFit Foundations is a one-on-one introductory course that will introduce you to the basic movements you will encounter in our group training classes. This program is three sessions where you will meet with a coach and progress toward joining our group training programs, or choose to stay with personal training!
Anyone who is new to CrossFit has to take our Foundations course. If you have some experience but have been away from CrossFit for while, Foundations is a great way to ease into our gym. We take pride in our athletes “moving well”. Our Foundations program is here to get you moving well and to prevent injury.
”ESTLR CrossFit has been the best gym I've been to in the Los Angeles area. Outstanding coaches, an awesome, open environment and an unstoppable community.Aly A.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Foundations is the discounted price of 3 personal training sessions at $199.00 for a limited time. Every new member signed up for our Foundations course will receive private coach mentoring! We will help you set goals and develop a workout plan to start achieving those goals. Furthermore, the Foundations course is FREE with a commitment to a three-month unlimited membership.
Each session starts off with a warm up. Then, there is a specific warm-up that involves more moving and stretching to prepare you specifically for the movements you will be learning about that day. Next, you will learn the skills for the day. This portion makes up a bulk of the hour, but the length of the session will be different for everyone. After you feel confident in the new movements, we finish the session with a short workout!
Wear anything you are comfortable working out or exercising in. Make sure they are the clothes you are OK sweating in. There are tons of CrossFit-specific clothes and shoes, but you do not need any of that for Foundations. If you are looking to upgrade your clothes to something a little more CrossFit specific, we can point you in the right direction.
We would love to welcome you into our gym. “Doing CrossFit before” means you’ve done an introductory course at another CrossFit gym, or have at least 3 months of CrossFit experience without significant time off. If you’re not sure where you fall, reach out to us and we can set you up with a refresher/test session.
We are sorry to hear, but that’s but not a problem! CrossFit can be adjusted, scaled, or modified to fit anyone’s needs. In Foundations, we can come up with a plan on how to accommodate your injuries. In addition, we have in-house physical therapists to provide assessments and recommendations if you like.
Any sort of hard, strenuous training can be unsafe if it’s performed incorrectly. That’s why we created Foundations. Through these intro classes, you are learning the correct way to move and how to properly approach the workouts. Once in classes, you are under the watchful eye of a coach(es) whose sole purpose is to push you outside your comfort zone while maintaining a safe environment. CrossFit done correctly is not dangerous.
Absolutely! We can do partner Foundations sessions for couples or friends. It’s still ($199.00) per person for Foundations, but after that, talk to us – you might qualify for a couples membership discount!
We would love to welcome you to our community. Please contact us and we will then schedule your three sessions at your convenience. Let us know what times work best for you, and we will match your trainer who will mentor you through the introductory process. We look forward to working with you!
