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! That’s the first and best reason. We have a first class strength and conditioning facility conducive to functional training, world class coaches that are fully invested in training you towards your goals, and all the equipment and resources you could possibly need to get you there. 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 and work hard..
Why is CrossFit more expensive than a normal Gym? and what does a membership Cost?
Our CrossFit classes involve a very hands on approach to training. That means you are privy to constant coaching and development at all stages of every session. We pour heart and soul into our program, and our clients, members, and our athletes are our best work.
The traditional gym model requires a monthly membership, plus personal trainer costs per hour on top if you require this kind of coaching. 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 personal training session per week. I think that’s fair..This is for an unlimited class membership.
Four main points:Unlimited Classes per week. No Contracts. Never have been and never will be! You will have to complete the FUNdamentals Program(10 pack) before starting general CrossFit Sessions. If you are a CrossFitter from another box then you will need to talk to Angus & Sally before joining general CrossFit sessions regularly.
HomeFront CrossFit FUNdamentals 10 pack $150 – Compulsory to start CrossFit.Students: 37.50 a week. Fortnightly Payments. Unlimited Sessions. Singles: $45 a week. Fortnightly payments. Unlimited sessions. Couples: $75 a week. Fortnightly payments. Unlimited sessions. Family: $110 a week. Fortnightly payments. Unlimited sessions.
If you have any questions please call Sally on 0419 60 46 49
I’m not very fit, do I need to be? Can I still do CrossFit?
You do not need a pre-existing level of fitness to get started training. We have any and every level of fitness at the gym, often all in the same session. The universal scalability and flexibility of the program 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, but this is your journey and yours alone.
So do not compare your day 1 to someone else day 100.
I need to get fitter then I’ll start! What should I go get fit first before starting CrossFit?
Sorry, that was the sound of my palm hitting my face..I get it, I do. I don’t like being a beginner at anything, anymore than you do. The reality is, regardless of your current/previous training schedule, you are going to be a beginner in CrossFit, unless you have been involved in Olympic style weightlifting or gymnastics in your youth.
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. You do this by doing……CrossFit..
There is a learning curve, that’s what makes it different and keeps you engaged. Enjoy the ride and again, remember who you are here for.
You don’t get fit to go to the gym, you go to the gym to get fit…
Will I get massive doing CrossFit?
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. You do not have enough circulating testosterone to promote that level of muscular growth. If you are getting bulky, you would be better checking your body fat percentage, I can almost guarantee that is the root cause of any dimension changes.
If you are male, it’s possible to put on mass training CrossFit. However, as with any growth, it requires adequate caloric intake to support said 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 eating too much, probably in the order of refined carbohydrate..
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.
