Getting Started

Welcome to Mayhem where fitness is fun!

New to Crossfit? This is how we get you started…

Take the Back to Basics Intro Course for functional movement & fitness. The cost of the Back to Basics Intro is $150.00.

We require all new clients to attend a series of eight (8) one hour sessions that will systematically teach the fundamental movements of crossfit during a four week period. Workouts incorporate gymnastics, Olympic lifting, kettlebells, running, rowing and various other skills incorporated into exciting and challenging “workouts of the day” (WOD). See “What is Crossfit” for more details. The classes must be taken in sequence as programmed. The intro is offered every 4 weeks. The 1st session will be offered Monday and Tuesday (you choose which day fits your schedule), the 2nd session will be taught Wednesday and Thursday (you guessed…you choose which day) during week one of the four week intro course. Session 3 and 4 will be taught during week 2…until the final 8th session is taught on the Wednesday and Thursday of the fourth week. There will be an Intro-WOD (I-WOD) available on the Friday and Saturday of each week so that you can continue to work on the skills you have learned that week or the previous weeks. At the completion of the 4 weeks, you start attending the regular group WOD sessions. The good news is that the month following the Back to Basics Intro Course will be Unlimited sessions for $99. Email gettingstarted@crossfitmayhem.com to sign up for the next Back to Basics Intro Course.

Some helpful reading is available to gain some understanding of the basic functional movements that will be practiced. They are available in pdf documents on the Crossfit Journal. The documents are titled “What is Fitness” and “Foundations.”

Here is a great post about “10 Tips For Success For The CrossFit Newbie” from CrossFit Delaware Valley.

If you think you should be excused from the required “Back to Basics Intro Course” please email gettingstarted@crossfitmayhem.com to set up an appointment with a trainer. If you are competent at all moves, you can go straight to group WOD session signup. If the trainer determines that you need to take a few of the intro sessions, you will be charged accordingly.
