Where do I start in CrossFit?
At CrossFit Tidal Wave as well as Mainland CrossFit I get many phone calls and emails from people of all levels and backgrounds. After the initial conversation the question is always “How do I get started?”.
I decided to make an easy reference guide to help you along your path of fitness.
Step 1: 0- Barely any training.
We highly suggest our Monthly Foundations course that will cover all the fundamentals and theory needed to progress smoothly in the class setting without feeling like a fish out of water. The workouts are scaled to your ability levels but even the more seasoned fitness enthusiast will learn something in this class.

Step 2: Personal Training
This is not mandatory but just another option available. Let’s say you don’t feel comfortable in the group setting just yet but would still like to do CrossFit. This is also an option for those that want to train specifically for something (Marathon, powerlifting,Off Season for football, etc).

Step 3: Consultation
Call 832 705 9852 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a short consultation with the coach. After the interview process we will decide if a trial class is an option based on your level of experience. Free Trials classes are available for experienced CrossFitters only as brand new members require 1 on 1 attention that can take away from the overall experience of a class. If you know how to perform the fundamental movements off CrossFit moderately well than this option is for you.
Step 4: Competition Team
This is an option for those that require a little less coaching but want to take things to the next level. We have competition programming available for those that are looking for that next level of training. This is a member benefit and you must pass the physical requirements to be given access to the programming.
Step 5: Barbell Club
For those of you that are looking to step on the Olympic Lifting platform this is for you. We have a Barbell Club option available for those just looking to compete in lifting. This is a club format so there will be posted hours when the lifting coaches will be present for the club but you. We provide programming but you are more that welcome to follow your own. This is NOT OPEN GYM FOR CROSSFIT. The equipment available to the club is only for lifting and warm up purposes. You will not have access to the CrossFit equipment with a club membership only.
