Day 1: What You Can Expect From Your First Class

For most of us, trying something new can be a mixed bag of excitement and apprehension.
Whether you are dipping a toe into fitness for the very first time or you are a seasoned CrossFit expert, we understand that walking through the doors of a new gym can be intimidating. So by being prepared and knowing a little bit about what you’re walking into can help calm the nerves.
Buckle up, buttercup, because this is what you can expect of your first Glevum Fitness class.
IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU! From the minute you step inside the door you will be greeted by a member of our staff. We will walk you through the quick process of checking in and signing our waiver. Pro tip, the front desk is also where we keep the post-workout snacks…
MEET THE TEAM! This is no cool kids club where we keep to ourselves – Here you will be introduced to and welcomed by everyone in your class. We have no strangers here.
GET WARM! Each warm-up is designed to prepare you for the Workout of the Day (WOD) and get your heart pumping. Whether it is generalised or digs into a specific skill that we will cover in the session, the ultimate goal is to set you up for success in the workout ahead.
LET’S CHAT! Following the warm-up, we all gather around the whiteboard to evaluate the WOD. Each workout is broken up into RX (Advanced), Intermediate and Beginner levels, which gives you clear options around how to confidently challenge yourself. This is the time to talk through the strategy, motives and desired goals for the WOD along with ironing out any progressions or modification options for you.
SET UP! From here, we take about 5 minutes to set up the weights or equipment you will need for your WOD, grab water and get our heads right for the main event.
3-2-1-GO! During the WOD, the coaches will be monitoring each member – giving cues on technique and making any adjustments you need to perform safely and effectively. Push yourself, respect your threshold, understand your limits and have some fun!
COOL DOWN! Now that the work is done, it’s time to reward your body with a gentle cool-down. In the last few minutes of the class, we will encourage and guide you through stretching off and winding down those taxed muscles. If time permits, we may also introduce some light skill or practice work.
AND THAT’S IT! Our classes, from start to finish, last an hour. If you need to run, we will get you out the door on time. However, our team is happy to hang around after the workout for questions and feedback – as, with any good relationship, communication is key.
Not too scary, huh? You’ve got this, and we’re excited to host you at our gym.
