More About CrossFIt
CrossFit is a core strength & conditioning program that delivers a fitness that is by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Elements of track & field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and strongman are combined in short intense daily workouts to maximize results for any individual. CrossFit teaches functional movement patterns, or, movements that you find in real life -pushing, pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, and sprinting.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

Questions about the Class and what the people say
No. Or, yes...
At RDX CrossFit our focus is on the virtuosity of proper mechanics and movement. Once you've mastered moving your body safely and efficiently, then, but only then, will we allow you to add load or intensity. The bottom line: the CrossFit method of training, when employed under the direction and supervision of a CrossFit Coach, is statistically safer than running.
However, when the movements found in CrossFit are attempted with unsafe loads, without proper training, or under poor instruction, the results can be catastrophic. That's why it's essential that you receive instruction from a staff holding a valid CrossFit Coach's certificate, and in a licensed CrossFit Affiliate, like RDX CrossFit.
The bottom line: every sport and fitness program carries some risk of injury. However, NOT participating in a fitness program all but guarantees illness and premature death.
RDX CrossFit can be thought of as "group personal training." Though an oxymoron, the premise remains. Every class you take at RDX CrossFit is under the direct supervision of CrossFit Level 2 Coaches. We handle your programming, warm up, instruction before the workout, assistance in selecting the load and intensity for your workout, supervision during the workout, cool down, and even track your performance with state of the art software. All for a great monthly price.
If, in the alternative, you elected to enroll at a traditional gym, for your monthly fee, you would have access to a large facility with an impressive array of amazing machinery. And that's is it. Want personal training? That's $45 an hour. Want them to design a training program for you? That's another $45 per month. Interested in specialty classes? That can be another $45 to $90 a month. So, if you worked out, on average, four days a week each month at RDX CrossFit and wanted to replicate that experience at a traditional gym under the guidance of a trainer, you would pay over $700 in trainer fees. That's on top of your monthly dues.
In the end, not only is the cost of training at RDX CrossFit is a great value, but the reward of being in the best shape of your life is priceless.
Every class you take at RDX CrossFit is an hour long. This will always include your warm-up, instruction and teaching, your workout, and your cool-down. Here's the secret:
Eighty percent of all CrossFit workouts are under 20 minutes long. And, of that 80%, half of those workouts are under 10 minutes long. One of the basic tenants of the CrossFit programming is to maximize the return on your physical investment. Why spend an hour and a half grinding it out at a traditional gym when you can produce better results in under 20 minutes? Don't think you can get a good workout in under 10 minutes? Then sign up for your free trial and find out just how wrong that assumption can be!
Absolutely not! We will spend a month with you in our On Ramp program teaching you the fundamental movements that are found in CrossFit workouts, and in every day life. We will meet for one hour, twice each week, for four weeks. This will give your body plenty of time to adjust to the new stimuli. Plus, you'll be part of a whole class of all new athletes. You'll be in this together, there are no strangers in foxholes!
Finally, we even help make sure RDX CrossFit is right for you before you spend a dime. The first two weeks of the RDX On Ramp Course are absolutely free. If you decide you want to continue, only then do you pay for the On Ramp Course. Better still, this payment will cover your first regular month of membership. The fee for the RDX On Ramp Course is always equal to the monthly rate of our 6 Month Plan. This keeps it fair to you when you are a member; the month of instruction devoted to new students will never be cheaper than any membership plan you're on.
Adult CrossFit classes are one hour long and are held every weekday evening, at 6:00 and again at 7:00. On Saturdays, we have a single Adult CrossFit class at 10:00 am, and have Open Gym Time from 11:00 am until Noon.
We understand how valuable your time is, and vow to never waste it. We take pride in starting and finishing classes on time, allowing you to maintain your schedule outside of the gym. Give us one hour; we'll do the rest!
RDX CrossFit is the only CrossFit Affiliate in the region where the entire training staff holds a CrossFit Level 2 Certificate. For more on those helping you reach your goals, be sure to click on the TRAINERS tab above.
Regardless of your current state of fitness, CrossFit is ideally suited for every individual. We can scale the load and intensity of your workout to keep you safe but challenged. You'll be doing the same workout as everyone else in your class, with the target weight, speed, or duration tailored to your conditioning. As you progress, so do your numbers.
