Choosing a Crossfit Gym

CrossFit’s mission is “to fuel a revolution in fitness based on the pursuit of function.”

Where you train is less important than how you train… and whom you train with matters more than what gear you have. CrossFit Wappoo just happens to have a great culture of acceptance and motivation, and very dedicated and knowledgeable coaches


You still need to decide if CrossFit Wappoo is for you

Once you narrowed down the CrossFit affiliates you want to try, take the time to visit. Talk with the trainers, talk with the members. Spend time observing a morning class and an afternoon class. By just being in the space you’ll learn a lot about class structure and trainers’ personalities.

The Same but Different

Although the fundamentals of CrossFit are the same wherever one goes, it’s safe to say no two gyms look the same. What matters most is that you feel comfortable in the space. Is it clean? Is the equipment easily accessed? Decide for yourself if it’s the environment for you.

At most common gyms there is no need or desire to get to know the people next to you on the elliptical trainer or Stairmaster. They’re probably too busy watching TV or reading US magazine. CrossFit, on the other hand, is one hundred percent all about the people you improve with every day. As CrossFit increasingly becomes a bigger part of your life, so, too, will your fellow CrossFitters. You don’t have to like everyone, but don’t be surprised if it turns out you do.
