CrossFit Foundations

Foundations classes are for individuals seeking to enter our ongoing group classes. They are designed to introduce the techniques and mechanics of CrossFit’s nine basic movements, and progress towards other secondary movements with increasing intensity. Foundations is perfect for those who are hesitant about the movements, desire more attention and time to review, or are unsure of where to begin.


Foundations is included in your CrossFit membership. Classes are three hours long and are held on select Saturdays. Foundations consists of an introduction to CrossFit’s basic movements, including:

  • Squats (Air/Front/Back Squats/Overhead Squat)
  • Deadlifts (Deadlift/Kettlebell Swing/Hang Clean)
  • Presses (Standing Shoulder Press/Push Press/Push Jerk)

Experienced CrossFitters

If you have at least three months of experience doing CrossFit at another location, you are welcome to skip Foundations and can immediately enroll in classes at CrossFit Balance.
