Welcome to CFSBK! Below you can find the course outline for Foundations complete with links to each of the exercises we’ll be covering. We’ve also compiled some additional resources below to set you up for success with our program!
Our Charter: Mechanics, Consistency then Intensity
CrossFit is a movement discipline that can provide lifelong improvements in fitness, health and happiness. Our charter for success is focusing first on developing your foundation with proper mechanics, showing up consistently and then finally focusing on intensity. Your first few weeks at CrossFit should almost feel “too easy” with a complete emphasis on performing the exercises as perfectly as you can. As you begin to feel more comfortable with our workouts, only then should you gradually begin to concern yourself with heavier weights and faster times. Just like any other discipline, success in CrossFit is achieved by focusing on mastering the basics and approaching it with a long term perspective. In this series we’ll cover everything you need to know to participate in our group classes.

- Completion of all 4 classes is mandatory prior to being cleared for group classes.
- Any missed class will need to be made up with a 1hr ($75) Private Training session.
- Registration is for specific days and times. Due to space/equipment limitations and in order to keep the coach/athlete ratio in check, unless there is space a member cannot ‘make up’ a class with a different Foundations cycle.
- Cancellation of the Foundations course within 7 days of the course start will be assessed a $75 cancellation fee.
- Cancellation of the Foundations course within 48 hours of the course start is non-refundable.
How to RSVP for a class after Foundations
All visits to the gym require an RSVP via the Zen Planner Membership App. Group classes are listed in the app by start time and Open gym times are listed in blocks. You can show up to Open gym whenever you want within the listed block times.
To log in to your Zen Planner (ZP) account download the member app.
Once you log in, the page will default on your profile page. Any active memberships will be displayed here.
To register for a class you will go to Calendar and click into the class you want to reserve. If you have a membership that can be applied towards this class the blue “reserve” button will appear on the right side of the page. Clicking this button will add you into the class with your membership.
If you want to see the classes you are registered for you can view this on the calendar or on your profile page. Classes you are reserved for will display with a star on the class. Or if you go to your profile page, under reservations to see them all displayed in list view.
Members will be allowed to register for classes up to 7 days in advance. Members also have the option to cancel the class via ZP or calling the front desk without penalty as long as it’s 6hrs before class starts.
Log your workouts
Probably one of the most important things you can do from the beginning is to log your workouts. Often our workouts build upon what we worked on the prior week, so writing down what you did allows you to track your progress and make the best decisions about what weights to pick each day.
CFSBK is excited to partner with our friends at Beyond the Whiteboard to provide digital workout tracking for our affiliate! Members are able to access each day’s workout on the app or desktop site, both of which provide tons of data, gym leaderboards, and a variety of other cool tracking parameters.
