FAQs

I heard that CrossFitter’s use their own language, can you help me with the terms?

Sure! This is a great link that will help get you started.  Word of caution: No need to be intimidated by this… ☺ We’ll walk you through it all!

Do I need to reserve a spot or contact anyone?

Yes! Terminus runs on appointment only. We do not turn anyone away, you can email [email protected] or complete the contact form here.

 

How often do you recommend I come to the gym?

If you’re just starting up, we recommend coming three days/week for your first couple weeks, then build to four, then five. Once you’re up to five days per week, we recommend building in two recovery days per week. Consistency is the key to making progress toward your goals! We love to see people make our gym a daily habit just like brushing your teeth!

I just relocated/looking for a new gym and I’d like to check you out prior to joining.

If you are an experienced CrossFitter, we will give you a free trial session. If you feel Terminus Strength & Conditioning is the right gym for you, we’ll get you started! Please contact us at [email protected] or fill out the form here.

I’m new to CrossFit! How do I get started?

We have Intro class times for anyone that is new to CrossFit! These classes provide a great workout and are perfect for beginners! Most importantly, our Intro classes will introduce you to our group structure and safely train the movements that will be performed in our general classes. With regular attendance it shouldn’t take any longer than 2-4 weeks before graduating from Intro sessions to our regular class times. Contact us here to get started

I’m not in very good shape…can I do CrossFit?

The very first thing you will discover is that CrossFit does not discriminate. Whether you are young at heart, or have just completed your 50th marathon, or are recovering from injury or healing a broken heart, whether walking the dog is the only exercise you’ve had in years, or you’re someone training for a triathlon…We will help you achieve your fitness goals.

One of the things that makes CrossFit so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, elite athletes, students, CEOs, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it. CrossFit bodies – our bodies – come in every imaginable size, shape and age; and yet, our workouts every day are designed for anyone to do them.

Yes, anyone.

What will my first time in your gym be like?

Your first time in, we want you to feel comfortable. One of our awesome coaches will greet you and show you around.  A typical session starts with a briefing of the training for the day. We will talk about the intention and focus of the workout . Then we will complete a general warm-up which will build into a workout specific warm-up and review of the skills and scales for the workout. After the warm-up it’s time to workout! We wrap the session with a general cool-down, fist bumps, and smiles!

What exactly is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a fitness program that will change your life. By it’s definition, it uses “constantly varied, functional movement performed at a relative high intensity”. As a truly functional program, the difficulty level of our daily workouts is designed to be increased or decreased, depending upon the individual. This makes them doable by anyone.

Daily workouts could include things such as core conditioning, rowing, sprinting, gymnastics, lifting, etc. And all our workouts are designed to improve overall flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, and agility.

What’s your drop-in policy?

We love nothing more than having visitors from other boxes come “throw down” with us!

If you are just passing through, we charge a drop in fee of $20 per session or offer a 5 session punch pass for $80.

All we ask is that you submit a drop-in form to make an appointment (we do not accept walk-ins) at least 24 hours in advance. Please use this form to start the appointment process. You can find our class schedule here. Please note: we do have a class cap and some of our class times book out in advance. We will do our best to give alternative times if that class time is full.

You may find that we do things a little differently than your “box back home.” We hope that you enjoy the change in scenery, clientele, maybe even music. If anything makes you uncomfortable, however, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Why is your gym more expensive than other gyms?

We know you may have a lot of choices on where to workout. What’s best… A treadmill at home? The gym down the street that is $15/month? A CrossFit membership? We’d actually encourage you to ask a different question. What are your goals? Personalized attention? Trained, professional coaches? Accountability? Working out with a group of like-minded people who cheer on your success? If the answer to any of the above is “yes”, then we’d encourage you to check us out.
