Curious about CrossFit? Gaithersburg’s CrossFit Become can help you ease into a new workout routine. Start with an hour-long intro session. A staffer will personally lead you around the gym, showing you what it has to offer, introducing you to one of the coaches (ask as many questions as you like), and performing an assessment to figure out which program would suit you best.
After the intro, head to your free trial class to get a better feel for CrossFit. The full-body workout emphasizes the importance of functional movements, which are exactly what they sound like: moves that you do on a daily basis out of necessity. These movements include lifting, pulling, pushing, squatting, and jumping. The coaches incorporate them into daily-changing routines that blend elements of strength-training and cardio. Each workout can be modified to suit any skill level, so don’t feel like you already have to be ripped in order to fit in at a CrossFit Become class. Just bring a positive attitude and a willingness to learn when you come to your first class!
