On Ramp Group Classes

On Ramp

Are you a new athlete?  Do you have trouble keeping your knees out in a squat or your back set in a deadlift?  Are you fresh out of Foundations and not quite sure if you're ready for the demands of group classes? If so, our new On-Ramp class may be perfect for you.

The sole purpose of the On-Ramp program is to develop consistent technique and increased capacity so that new athletes can proceed into group classes with solid movement and training habits.  By focusing on truly mastering the fundamentals, developing proper movement strategies, and increasing strength and mobility, we'll provide you with the fitness base to move seamlessly and successfully into Group Classes. 

The key difference is that the On-Ramp classes purposefully take more time to review exercises, detail good training habits and limit intensity.  Most workouts will be done not for time in the interest of making you move better before you move faster.

The class meets 2x/week and is recommended as a 8-12 week cycle for potential participants. Attendance is open to all members and payment works exactly like your regular Group Class membership.  You may also mix On Ramp and Group Classes if your schedule doesnt afford you the time to come to both classes.

On Ramp Classes meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 8pm.  If you've got
any questions about this class, please email

Happy Birthday, Alek G, Debbie P and CrossFit Virtuosity!

We've made one change to the programming for the upcoming cycle.  Instead of Overhead Squats we're going to do Back Squats.  The rational being that we'd like to drop the additional overhead component so that we can go overhead in conditioning workouts more often.

Good luck to Steph P and Christine G as they gear up for the NYC Triathlon this weekend!

Correction!
The flat rate for Active Recovery is $15 regardless of contract type.  We've just switched it up so that you can now use A/R as one of your group classes.  The management (David) apologizes for the mix up.

We've combined next month's pull and upper body lift.  The following cycle will look like this:
Saturday  Overhead Squat + Metcon or assistance work
Sunday  Metcon
Monday  Clean and Jerk + Metcon or assistance work
Tuesday  -REST DAY-
Wednesday  Overhead Squat + Metcon or assistance work
Thursday  Metcon
Friday  -REST DAY-
