Getting Started with HomeFront CrossFit

How do I start at HomeFront CrossFit?


1. Contact us through social media or call Sally on 0419604649 to organise a one-on-one walk through of HomeFront CrossFit at 52 Lords Place, Orange NSW 2800.

2. Organise your 1.5 hour On-Ramp session with Sally at a convenient time for you.

The On-Ramp session is a way that we can introduce you to HomeFront CrossFit in a relaxed and non-intimidating setting.

You will go through with Sally the basics of -

a) What is CrossFit?

b) You will be shown how a class is run and how we modify the movements for you. 

c) You will do a simple movement assessment, so we can see what you can and cannot do.

d) Then we go through the paperwork, set up your mobile phone apps and join HomeFront CrossFits private Facebook group. You will need these to book into your first class and be a member at HomeFront CrossFit.

Note: There are “NO” membership contracts at HomeFront CrossFit and you are “NOT” obligated to sign up for a membership after you complete the OnRamp.

Why is that you may ask?

The magic happens when you just do the work! No questions asked, No Egos, No time lines, No excuses, No second guessing anyone or anything,  just do the work.

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.

  • 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…

    You are always going to be a beginner when you start at 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 ever 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 journey and again, remember be patient. Rome wasn’t built in a day!


  • Ladies: "Will I get massive doing CrossFit?"

    If you are female it is not possible. Read that again, it is not possible to get huge doing CrossFit.

    You will get awesome definition because you will loose body fat. That’s not bulking up!!

    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 Clinical 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 just 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. Eg: Donuts & Cup Cakes!

  • 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!

  • What is CrossFit’s prescription for Nutrition?

    “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that support exercise, but not body fat.” Greg Glassman (Founder of CrossFit)

    A really good starting point in learning about food is to read “In Defence of Food” by Michael Pollan. From there you will realise its about eating food that rots! Basically not eating food made by humans, in factories but eating plants and animals.

    Sally can help you from there.
