Q: What do I do if I want to come see what this is all about?
A: Contact us to schedule your free "Intro" appointment. During this private session with a Triangle CrossFit coach, you will learn more about how we do things at TCF, have your questions answered as well as experience a sample workout. For more details, visit our Get Started page.
Q: How are you different from the gym right around the corner from my house?
A: Triangle CrossFit offers superior fitness coaching, not an overcrowded place for you to meander through and hope you're getting it right. Our coaching staff is highly trained and experienced. "Globo Gyms" do not offer a high level of attention and instruction with their "$20-a-month" memberships. Your $20 a month simply gets you in the door. YOU WILL GET COACHED AND SEE RESULTS at Triangle CrossFit. In addition, becoming a part of TCF instantly connects you with a community of like-minded individuals who don't mind working hard for their fitness and having fun along the way.
Q: What is a class like at Triangle CrossFit?
A: After a warm-up period, you will will then take on the "Workout of the Day." Before the workout begins, the coach will explain the workout, what is expected as far as correct performance, help athletes with any needed modifications and/or scaling, answer questions, and then start the workout for the group. Your coach will correct form or technique issues as the workout goes on, making sure you're working safely and effectively. Usually, your goal is to finish the prescribed amount of work as quickly as possible, which is a measurable component that can be compared to the next time the particular workout comes around. Be a consistent CrossFitter, and you will see improvements. The workouts are always varied, so you never know what you're going to be doing from one day to the next. Some days it's body weight exercises (like push ups and sit ups), some days weights are involved (like deadlifts and presses), with many other activities thrown in (sprints, medicine ball throws, rope climbs). All of this is scaled so that you can do it. Throughout the class, you''ll receive instruction and feedback to help keep you moving safely and efficiently.
Q: How long is a class?
A: A class will last approximately an hour. Athletes are expected to arrive on time and to stay for the full duration of the class. If you are one of the first athletes to finish a workout, it is expected that you stay to support your fellow CrossFitters finishing up. Leaving early is bad etiquette.
Q: From looking everything over, don't I have to be in shape first?
A: Not at all! That's what we're here for. We "scale down" each workout to meet the abilities of anyone. We don't try to embarass or "show up" anyone, which would accomplish nothing. We're dedicated to getting you fitter and healthier.
Q: What if my schedule doesn't match the scheduled classes?
A: There are a few options. First of all, please let us know of a better time for a class. If enough folks ask for it, we'll get it on the schedule. Next, we do offer Private Coaching, which might also be an option for those who aren't ready to work out with others yet, or are looking for extra attention when it comes to form and technique.
Q: If a Workout of the Day is posted everyday, why do I need to come to your gym?
A: Besides the fact that we already have all the equipment you'll ever need to do CrossFit and a highly qualified coaching staff, joining TCF brings you into a community of other CrossFitters that will provide you with support, encouragement, challenge, and friendship. The camaraderie that exists within our gym is part of the Triangle CrossFit experience.
Q: Do you offer team training?
A: Yes. We can make any athlete better, from wrestlers to cheerleaders, and cross country runners to football players. We offer team rates that make our program very affordable for participants. Contact us for more details.
Q: Do you have child care?
A: Children are welcome to come to TCF with their parents. We have a designated children's area just off of the main gym floor.
