1.) Is this a gym?
We are nothing like a traditional gym. We don’t have a sea of machines with people chasing “fitness” while jogging on a treadmill (and watching CNN). We are a coaching facility with youth, parents, grandparents and athletes who’s main goal is to become as fit as possible. This is accomplished by training as a group, and receiving the best fitness coaching money can buy.
2.) Aren’t you expensive?
We are, if you think steak is expensive compared to hamburger. Tastes better though, doesn’t it? Is it worth it? You betcha.
And, honestly, go tally up what a month of personal training sessions will cost you in this area. If you go 5 or 6 times a week for 4 weeks, it will run you over $2,000 if you hired a personal trainer at a local gym. Then come see us at a tiny fraction of that price — and get better results and have a better time. We’re actually really cheap for the service and results you receive.
3.) Isn’t CrossFit dangerous?
Absolutely, but so is driving like a maniac. You have to learn to crawl before you run. People begin practicing lifts with a broomstick, and we slowly build up from there. We focus on mechanics first, then look for consistency. After you can perform movements safely, and perfectly, we will add intensity.
That’s why we have so much coaching. Most people weren’t born knowing how to perform Olympic lifts. Someone needs to teach you how to do it correctly. We’re the people to do it.
4.) Olympic Lifting? What’s that?
The Snatch. The Clean and Jerk. That stuff you see strong guys do at the Olympics. It’s a lot of fun — and a lot of technique. It’ll develop your explosive power like nothing else. And it’s not just for Olympians. We have grandmas and nursing mothers do it, as well as big, strong guys. And we’re one of the only athletic training facility in Moncton that has premium Olympic bars and bumpers. You can drop the weights at CrossFit Moncton. In fact, if your lift goes bad, we want you to drop the weight. That’s why we have rubber bumper plates. Your safety is the most important thing to us.
5.) Why only classes? Why can’t I come in whenever I want?
Group workouts get better results. Period. You’ll push yourself harder and have more fun in a group. Guaranteed.
However, we also have Open Gym time slots throughout the day in case you want to work on extra skills or weaknesses.
6.) I’ve heard CrossFit is really hard. Is that true?
Easy is spending an hour at the gym, adjusting pins in those ungodly machines. Do you break a sweat? Maybe…
Does your gym workout right now leave you so gassed at the end that you have to lay down just to catch your breath? Probably not…
CrossFit will knock you flat. But that doesn’t mean you start at the hardest level. You start wherever you are able to start. If you can only deadlift 50 pounds safely, then that’s where we start. And then we help you to get stronger. Got a real pull-up? Great, we’ll show you how to do more. Don’t have a pull-up? That’s even better. We’ll teach you how to get one — and we’ll get you strong enough to do one. No matter who you are.
7.) My gym says they have CrossFit classes, they just call it something else. Why should I come to you?
If you want steak, come here. If you’re happy with hamburger, go to your gym. We’ve been trained in the CrossFit methods by all of the top CrossFit coaches. Our staff is highly educated in the science of athletic movement. We can pass that knowledge onto you. We are the best. If you want that, come see us. Click here to see our qualifications.
8.) How much does it cost?
We have a variety of options, we want to make sure what you get is what you need. Come in for a No-Sweat Intro, then walk out our door. Really. Go home and decide if you want to join. We’re not going to bug you. But price comparison between us and Global Gym or Goodlife or whoever is comparing apples and oranges, so we just don’t do it. Instead, come in and talk to use about your goals and decide for yourself. Think of it as a taste-test. Call Kevin at (506) 962-0710 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and set up your free taste-test.
