What do I need to know?
You don't have to be fit to start CrossFit!
Where you are right now, in terms of age and fitness, is exactly the right place to start. To become a member of the CrossFit 4810 community all you have to do is be willing to learn and be prepared to leave your ego at the door.
Everyone can do CrossFit, but CrossFit isn't for everyone. The people who thirve at CrossFit are those committed to hard work, dedicated to consistency, who will try anything without fear of failure and are eager for a challenge.
The CrossFit program is designed with universal scalability which means we use the same routines for elderly individuals, the every day individuals who want to be able to play sports in the park with their kids, to the experienced athlete. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. We change the load and intensity not the program.
What is the Introduction to CrossFit session?
The purpose of the Introduction to CrossFit session is to establish your current fitness, mobility and capability and also discover a little about your background and your goals.
We understand that each individual has their own unique fitness history. Regardless of where you have come from or what you have (or haven't) done in the past, our course is designed to give you an understanding of Crossfit and the safe movements involved, and is suitable for all fitness levels. It is not intended that you should be able to memorise and master all the movements and techniques you have been introduced to after one session.
What can I expect at the Intro?
Our Introduction session runs for 3 hours and starts with an orientation. We then explain, demonstrate and have you perform some foundational CrossFit movements and introduce you to the two Olympic weightlfiting movements - the snatch and the clean & jerk. All of these movements will be introduced to you gradually and modification or scaling options will be explained where necesary. We finish the session with a short workout followed by a cool down stretch where we can address any questions or concerns.
These sessions are usually performed either one on one or in a small group so there is plenty of opportunity for individual coaching and feedback.
After completing the Introduction to CrossFit session you can attend as many classes as you like for the following week.
If, after your first week, you decide that CrossFit is for you, we can then discuss Membership options.
When can I start?

Can I just try one class to see if I like it?
No – you must do the INTRODUCTION TO CROSSFIT session first. If, after this time, you feel that CrossFit is not for you then you are not locked into any long term contracts.
