Danny started with us a year ago to help improve his strength and stamina.  He has been working very hard and I think those that know him in the box and outside would agree it’s working!!  Great job!!

“After the three worst years in my life I moved to Florida and didn’t know anyone except my two partners at work. I joined a baseball team and a teammate suggested I start crossfit to build up my endurance and my leg strength. So I began investigating different boxes. I knew there would be physical benefits to starting CrossFit but I didn’t know I would discover such a fantastic group of people and an addicting lifestyle as well as a great coaching crew. I knew I was in the right place after my first class when Wes and Shaun welcomed to the group. Greg and Jen have built something that has terrific value and attracts great people. Glad I found CFLM. It has made my transition to Florida much easier.”

 

Don’t just jump into CrossFit……

Here are a few topics as to what to expect from your coach, community, why the foundations course is so important, and how the course will generally be laid out. Then we can, hopefully, put to rest a lot of myths about the social media-based “dangers” of CrossFit.

Your Coach

Our coaches at CrossFit Lake Mary are individuals who enjoy taking life to the next level, they are very friendly, and has the client/member’s personal well-being at heart. These are just a few attributes that a new individual starting CrossFit will experience when signing up to become at CrossFit Lake Mary. Your coaches have a list of priorities that they live by, but here are a few very important ones:
1) Client/member safety
2) Instilling proper and appropriate technique on ALL lifts
3) Willing to scale any and all movements appropriate to each skill level
4) Friendly and uplifting personality
When you walk into CrossFit Lake Mary, be rest assured that you will experience this type of person when beginning your CrossFit journey. The most important thing to our coaches is that you’re safe and remain injury-free. Our coaching team are extremely open-minded and are always uplifting.

CrossFit Lake Mary Community

The CrossFit Lake Mary Community is a thing of beauty. Once your introduced to it by your coach, the manner in which you exercise will never be the same. Our community is remarkably friendly, encouraging, and uplifting (just to name a few attributes). It doesn’t matter the skill level, each and every individual is treated the same. There’s no discrepancy (or there shouldn’t be) between the fittest athlete and the least-fit athlete. They are a magnificent group that wants you to succeed and achieve all of your goals that you have written out.

Importance of The Foundations Course

These beginner courses (often referred to as Foundations, CrossFit 101, OnRamp, etc.) are quintessential to individuals who are seeking out CrossFit so to change their current workout/lifestyle routine. These courses are made to ensure the following (this is not a complete list):
1) Proper mechanics
2) Debug CrossFit myths
3) Define CrossFit
4) Guide you through the workouts
5) How the body is going to be trained so not to specialize
As you may have noticed before signing up with CrossFit Lake Mary, there are a lot of complex movements that require appropriate technique and a lot of coordination. This course forces and walks you through the mechanics with nothing more than a 8′-9′ PVC Pipe, 15# barbell, 35# barbell, or 45# barbell. By the end of the course, your learning does not stop, however you will have gained the appropriate knowledge and laid down the correct movement patterns so to “graduate” to the general classes. By fully grasping what is laid out for you in this course, your CrossFit journey will continue to be filled with fun and learning.
