21-15-9 Reps For Time of:
Air Bike, Calories
Volume scale is: 15-9-6 reps
In a “For Time” workout, the amount of work that needs to be completed is preset and the variable is how long it takes you to complete it. For example “Run 1 Mile” is a for time workout where everyone will have a slightly different time for completion. We always provide a general time frame for how long a workout should take and will adjust the total volume (number of reps) or movement to allow you to finish in the intended time frame.
In “AMRAP” (As Many Rounds as Possible) style workouts, the time frame for the workout is predetermined and the variable is how much work you can perform before time expires. So in today’s workout you’ll keep cycling through the three exercises for 8:00 and will note how many rounds and partial rounds you completed.
A: 6-12 Cals Rowing
B: 6-12 Burpee
An EMOM (Every Minute on the Minute) workout is an interval style workout where each minute you perform a preset number of reps or max reps for the time frame before moving onto the next exercise. In today’s workout, the goal is to find a rep range that allows you to work for about :40 +/- :05 each round. So on minute one you perform 8 Calories on the rower and when minute two starts you perform 8 burpees. Y
Work up to a technically sound medium/heavy single.

What happens after Foundations?
Choose a Membership
After Foundations you’ll have a few membership options to choose from. Pick a membership based on how many times per week you think you can consistently attend class. Memberships are month to month, so if you’d like to adjust it at any point just let the front desk know and they’ll make the change.
How to RSVP for a class
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.
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 do not have a membership that is eligible for this class, please reach out and we’ll help troubleshoot.

Group Classes & Open Gym
Additional Training Services:
In addition to group classes and open gym, we offer a variety of other programs you might consider taking advantage of:
Personal Training: Work 1 on 1 with a coach regularly or occasionally to focus on some personal goals. Some folks see a coach 1-3+ times per week, others schedule a session every few weeks to tune up things they might be working on.
Nutrition Coaching: Interested in getting some coaching and accountability with your nutrition? Many of our coaches offer nutrition consultation. Simply ask the coach you’re interested in working with or tell the front desk and we’ll set you up. Many of our coaches use the Precision Nutrition approach to developing gradual and sustainable behavior change to meet your nutrition goals.
Remote Programming: Remote programming is an option where a coach will assess your goals and provide individually tailored programming for you to work on in Open Gym. Talk to a coach you’d like to work with or let the front desk know if you’re interested in this option.
Massage & Physical Therapy: Interested in some hands on treatment? We have a Licensed Massage Therapist as well as Physical Therapist in house to work with you. Learn more and reach out via the links to book an appointment.

Good Training Habits
Mechanics, Consistency, 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.
Come Prepared, Listen to your Coaches & Ask Questions
To get the most out of each visit to the gym, we recommend you show up knowing what the workout will be. The daily workout can be found via the workouts & blog link or by putting cfsbk.com into your browser. While we’ll review everything in house, coming in with a working knowledge of what the workout will be will dramatically accelerate your familiarity with our exercises, methodology and give you a chance to watch any demo videos if you’d like to ahead of time. The blog is also a great way to learn what’s going on around the gym, see fellow members highlighted and check out some of the daily resources we provide. We also program in 6 week blocks during which you’ll see some consistent training themes on given days. The 6 week training template is always linked below the workout. Don’t worry too much about that in the beginning unless you’re really curious. Just show up!
Our coaches are all professional trainers focused on providing you with the best feedback and guidance to get the most out of our gym. Follow their instruction and never hesitate to ask a question, request a substitute on an exercise or get better clarity about what’s going on. It’s literally our job to help you, so speak up!
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.
