Starting at HomeFront CrossFit with FUNdamentals CLASSES
“When you hear something, you will forget it.
When you see something, you will remember it.
But not until you do something, will you understand it.”
~ Ancient Chinese proverb
All Beginners at HomeFront CrossFit are eased into our programming by modifying the workouts for the body to adjust to the intensity. It lets you realise that our classes are easy going, fun, non-intimidating and in a welcoming environment that caters for all individuals of all fitness levels.
Our members includes 15 year olds to 70 year olds, Grandparents, Mums and Dads, Brothers and Sisters, Big Ones and Little Ones, Large Ones and Skinny Ones, we look after everyone!
CrossFit is simply running, jumping, skipping, lifting, throwing, pushing and pulling – basically training for life!
You will start with lower skill movements and lighter weights than what experienced CrossFitters use. We don’t want to smash you!!! We want you to start moving, be healthy and in time become Fitter Faster, and Stronger.
There is over 30 classes available to choose from every week. You can stay with a 10 pack membership for as long as you want too. There are NO contracts and you do not have to start a general CrossFit Membership (Direct Debit) until you are ready.

HomeFront CrossFit F.A.Q.
Why would I join a CrossFit Gym instead of a regular Gym?
Because I’m presuming you want to get fit and healthy! By Fit and healthy we mean in a supportive, positive, social and caring environment that motivates you to keep turning up! You just happen to exercise as well.
At HomeFront CrossFit we have one of Australia’s best CrossFit strength and conditioning facilities. Specifically designed for functional training plus world class coaches that are fully invested in helping you achieving your goals.
All classes are fully coached and supervised from start to finish, often with multiple trainers. The program is set, all you need to do is turn up, have fun and work hard.
Why is CrossFit more expensive than a normal Gym? and what does a membership Cost?
A CrossFit class is exactly like a group personal training session. We look after the programming, HomeFront CrossFit has one of Australia’s best equiped “Box’s (CrossFit for Gym) and Trainers with 20 plus years experience and qualifications.
Every CrossFit class involve a very hands on approach to training. That means you are privy to constant coaching and development at all stages of every session. Our Trainers pour their heart and soul into your development, and HomeFront members, and our athletes are our best work.
The traditional gym model requires a monthly membership, plus paying a personal trainer per hour on top of your membership if you require this kind of training.
See how the price of five (5) P.T. Sessions a week plus monthly membership stacks up. Comparatively, we are half the price of one hour personal training session per week. We think that’s fair. This is for an unlimited class membership.
Four main points:1. Unlimited Classes per week. 2. No Contracts. Never have been and never will be! 3. You will have to complete the FUNdamentals Program(10 pack) before starting general CrossFit Sessions. 4. If you are a CrossFitter from another box then you will need to talk to Angus & Sally before joining general CrossFit sessions regularly.

I’m not very fit, do I need to be? Can I still do CrossFit?
You do not need to be fit to get start training at CrossFit. If anything we love it when we get a new Member who has no or little training experience as they do not have bad habits and old injuries from training incorrectly.
We have Members of all levels of fitness at the gym, often all in the same class.
The universal scalability and flexibility of the programming allows us to have complete beginners, and full time athletes working the same, although modified versions of the same workout. That’s what makes it fun..
Every single person that walks into the HomeFront CrossFit is a beginner to CrossFit, regardless of how fit they are. Some progress quicker than others, its about how mush you’re willing to commit to achieve your goals.
Its all about you and your journey, no-one elses!
Guys: "I need to get fitter before I’ll start CrossFit!
You don’t get fit to go to the gym, you go to the gym to get fit…
Sorry, that was the sound of my palm hitting my face..we get it, we really do. You don’t like being a beginner at anything, anymore than we do. The reality is, regardless of your current/previous training schedule, you are always going to be a beginner in CrossFit.
You might be a TriAthlete, A Soccer or Rugby Player, A Hockey or Netballer and be good at it! CrossFit looks after all 10 facets of Fitness not just the 2 or 3 specific to your sport. CrossFits specialises in not specialising! The only way to get CrossFit….. is to start CrossFit.
It is going to feel very different from anything else you have done, and your previous fitness will not hold up very well to the different level of intensity, it takes time to adapt and build up to the new demands you are asking of your body.
There is a learning curve, that’s what makes it fun, different and keeps you engaged. Enjoy the ride and again, remember be patient. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Ladies: "Will I get massive doing CrossFit?"
Ladies: “Will I get massive doing CrossFit?”
Sorry, that was my palm hitting my face again. If you are female it is not possible. Read that again, not possible to get huge CrossFitting.
Women do not have enough circulating testosterone or eat enough Protein (2 x your bodyweight in protein a day) to promote that level of muscular growth. 60% off your health is what you eat! If you are getting bulky, you would be better off checking your body fat percentage, we can almost guarantee that the cause of you getting bigger is that you are eating all the wrong things. Sally is our in-house Nutritionist who can help you achieve your goals with Nutrition and therefore bodyweight.
If you are a male, it’s possible to put on mass training CrossFit. However, as with any growth, it requires you eat good “in season” food and eat a lot of protein (Not supplements) to support your growth. If you are not putting on size and you want to, you are not eating/training hard enough.
If you are not losing size and you want to, you are not drinking enough water and you are eating too much, probably in the order of refined (simple) carbohydrates.
What if I have never lifted weights before?
Lifting weights is essential for increasing strength and power, which is a fundamental component of any training program. If you have not lifted weights before, this doesn’t mean you can’t take part in CrossFit.
In fact, it’s easier for us to coach people who haven’t used weights before, as they haven’t picked up bad habits that can be challenging to correct. We’ve found that women who have never lifted weights before often have better form/technique than the guys, as women don’t use their natural strength to lift the weights.
Remember we do care about what weight you lift, we care about how you lift it!
