Getting started at CrossFit Thermal is simple. Once you’ve made contact with us through our “get started” form on the main page, or via phone you’re ready for your one time, free, intro session. You’ll come in and have an opportunity to meet the coaches and tour our facility. During this initial session you’ll also have an opportunity to sit down with a coach and go over your goals and discuss how our CrossFit program can help you achieve them. This is the time to ask questions, get a sense for logistics and get a feel for the atmosphere. At the conclusion of the intro session, you’ll have a chance to try a shortened CrossFit workout designed for you to sample what doing CrossFit will feel like.

Once you’ve completed your intro session you’ll be ready to try an actual class. For you first week or so, you’ll have your very own “CrossFit shadow” in class. This means that one of our coaches or interns will be assigned to you and that person will make sure you get your feet under you while you’re starting out. This is critical since it is likely that you will be unfamiliar with some of the movement patterns or the overall flow of the class when you are brand new. The shadow will help you figure out things like how much weight to use, or how to scale a particular movement that you’re unsure of. Once you’ve had a few sessions with your shadow, you’ll transition into being an active regular member of class.
