When you see or hear about CrossFit, what are some thoughts that come to your mind?
We find that a lot of people have misconceptions of what CrossFit actually is. Most people know about CrossFit from what they see on TV and social media accounts. They see workouts and competitions from professionals and top performing athletes.
That’s the highlight reel. The perfectly executed movements at insane amounts of weight and done incredibly fast.
What you didn’t see were the behind the scenes. All of those athletes once started at zero. They learned how to do movements with pvc pipes and trainer bars. Learned proper movement patterns before adding weight. You also didn’t get to see the many mistakes they made while they learning. Or see their coaches regularly guide them on how to execute each repetition safely and correctly.
Everybody starts as a beginner. And every beginner should start with safety in mind.
As a beginner to CrossFit, you too can start at zero like they once did. You too can start with a pvc pipe and trainer bar. You too can have a coach guide your movements to make sure you’re doing them safely and correctly.
And let’s be clear – we’re not sending you to the Games. We just want you to be a champion at living a healthy and active life.
To be strong for what life brings you – picking up your squirming kids, carrying bags of groceries into the house in one trip, chasing your dog down the street, squatting down to pick up a bag of kitty litter and putting it into your shopping cart, putting something heavy away on a top shelf…you know, life!
If you would like to also start at zero and learn more about CrossFit and how to move safely and correctly, then come to our CrossFit Fundamentals class!

- Discover just how fun and do-able CrossFit actually is!
“The CrossFit Fundamentals class at Alamo 180 was exactly what I needed to jump start my fitness goals again. I’m aware of what works for me: consistency with nutrition, commitment to the workouts and most importantly, a strong sense of community. After the first day with you guys, I knew I’d be back- without a doubt!”
“It was a great opportunity to get introduced to CrossFit”
“The content was fantastic.. I was able to appreciate how, apart from being a way of fitness, CrossFit is a lifestyle.”
Will the CrossFit Fundamentals class be a high intensity workout? The CrossFit Fundamentals class is designed with the purpose of teaching you proper movement patterns so you can move safely, correctly, and comfortably. The emphasis is on skill development, not sweating. You can expect several repetitions of each movement (we learn through doing), lots of rest, and lots of explanation. Come as you are and we will meet you where you are!
What if I can’t do a push-up? You can still attend the CrossFit Fundamentals class! Many have gone through our CrossFit Fundamentals class not being able to do a push-up. You won’t be the first, nor the last. The wonderful thing about CrossFit is that it is infinitely scaleable. Every movement can be scaled to fit the individual where they are. If you cannot do a push-up from your toes, we will teach you proper form from your knees. If you cannot do a push-up from your knee, we will do an incline push-up where your hands are on a bench or wall. You will receive appropriate scaling and respectful coaching. We do this for ALL movements you’ll encounter in CrossFit.
I’m not new to strength training, but I am new to CrossFit, do I still need to take the CrossFit Fundamentals class? We highly encourage you to take the class. CrossFit is a skill and skills requires repeated practice. Learn how to execute the movements safely and correctly. It’s always a good idea to recommit to the basics. To unlearn any bad habits you may have picked up (happens to us all) and learn how to move more efficiently. Always be a learner!
Do I have to do the classes in order? The CrossFit Fundamentals is set up so you can start with either Part 1 or Part 2. Start with Part 1 and finish with Part 2, or start with Part 2 and finish with Part 1. In any order that works for you, complete the CrossFit Fundamentals classes.
What if I decide after the CrossFit Fundamentals class that this isn’t for me? If you decide after the class that CrossFit isn’t for you, 1) we will applaud you for trying it out, 2) will do our best to offer guidance on local fitness programs you might enjoy, and 3) you will leave with wisdom on how to safely and correctly move. This will serve you well on your next fitness adventure.
“From the moment I walk in I felt welcomed and encouraged.”
“Awesome….loved it! Thanks!”
