For The Beginners
The Foundations course is our introduction to the world of CrossFit and functional fitness and is where all new athletes begin their journey. During this two week period, you will attend 6-8 classes by appointment during which we will perform an overall assessment, teach you skills and progressions for developing proper mechanics in each of the foundational movements, lead you through a beginner-friendly workout, and introduce the concepts and strategies that we use to get incredible results. Safety is our top priority and our coaches partner with you to ensure that you can feel confident in joining the CrossFit program and community. The cost for Foundations is $200 and we will apply a $50 credit towards your membership upon graduation.
At CrossFit Brigade we are all about fun but any CrossFit box in the Central East Region knows that we have serious competitive side. We’ve sent competitors to the CrossFit Games’ Regionals in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016. The “Sport of Fitness” is changing a little with the loss of Regionals and the addition of Sanctioned Qualifiers and we are ready to adapt. Our Special Ops programming is designed to be layered on top of our existing programming. This means that participants in Special Ops attend our CrossFit sessions and do the WODs with everyone else then utilize “open gym” time and Special Ops group training sessions to tackle the extra work.
This program is designed to help athletes prepare for the sport of CrossFit, as well as prepare them to be as adept and well-rounded as possible to excel in unknown elements of our growing sport. If you are interested in developing as a CrossFit athlete, have been CrossFitting for at least 6 months, and are willing to make a commitment to longer training sessions with more advanced movements – this is the specialty course for you!
Be aware – Special Ops isn’t for everyone – it requires a pre-screening before participating as it is considered a high level class with certain requirements and time commitments. If you are interested in joining our competition training program now or in the future, contact: [email protected] to find out what it takes.
Members seeking to add Olympic Lifting technique sessions to their CrossFit program are encouraged to check out Brigade Made and the Brigade Barbell Club. These programs offer time to work purely on the barbell in a small group setting with a coach.
We understand that group classes aren’t for everyone. Some benefit more in a one-on-one atmosphere or have very specific objectives or goals better suited for a more individualized plan. Our coaches offer one-on-one and small group sessions to complement any program.
