What is the cancellation policy?

Private coaching appointments must be cancelled 24 hours in advance and can be done by calling or e-mailing your coach directly. Because it is very difficult for our coaches to re-book their appointment times on short notice, athletes who cancel their appointments late will be charged for the appointment.

CrossFit seems expensive. Is it worth it?

What CrossFit offers is not your typical gym experience. While our rates are comparable to any group fitness classes, the results you’ll achieve are unparalleled. Membership fees are applied toward equipment and facility costs, as well as the expertise of the Certified CrossFit Trainer coaching each and every class you’ll participate in.

Your typical gym experience relies on you knowing what exercises to do, and for you to have the self-discipline and motivation to do it on your own. Very little guidance accompanies the standard gym membership, which usually results in boredom, injury and lackluster results. CrossFit offers personal training at a fraction of the cost. Our clients love it!

I’ve heard people talk about CrossFit, but why is it that your members like it so much?

Our members love CrossFit because the workouts are constantly varied, we make a point of demonstrating each movement before the WOD begins, and incorporate stretching at the beginning and end of class to assist with a faster recovery following the workout. We have a lot of fun in and out of the gym, and many of our members have developed new friendships at First City CrossFit. This is something we take great pride in!

I don’t want to lift weights because I don’t want to get too muscular.

Lifting weights will not bulk you up. It will actually help you burn more calories.

I’m visiting Monterey from another CrossFit. Can I drop in to a class when I’m in town?

We welcome visitors from other CrossFit boxes to classes that have space available. Please sign up in advance using our Drop-In Portal.

I haven’t worked out in a really long time (or am recovering from an injury). Will CrossFit be too hard for me?

Well, CrossFit is designed to be hard for everybody, but know that you are not an exception.  One of the great things about CrossFit is that every workout can be scaled or modified to suit any fitness level or injury. What that means is that whether you are new or a veteran CrossFitter, you can do the same workout, but the workout is scaled according to each athlete’s fitness level. We teach our members how to scale and modify workouts in all of our workouts, and our coaches always provide modifications. You do not need to be in shape or fit to start working out with us at First City CrossFit.

I’m not sure if I want to commit to a CrossFit membership. Can I just drop in to try out a class?

Absolutely. We offer a free 5 workout trial so you can decided if First City CrossFit is right for you. Click here to sign up for your free trial. Once your trial is up, you can pay per session, you can buy a punch card for multiple sessions, or pay monthly.

When are the workouts? What is the schedule?

You can find our weekly schedule by clicking here.

Do I need special clothing or equipment?

All you need are comfortable clothes, tennis shoes, and a water bottle.  We provide everything else you will need.

Your clothes should allow a full range of motion. With regard to footwear, any type of athletic shoes will suffice, however some people prefer flat soled training shoes (less heel than common running shoes), as well as Olympic Lifting shoes for those days when we’re weightlifting.

Can I try it out for free?

YES!  We offer a free 5 workout trial so you can decided if First City CrossFit is right for you. Click here to sign up for your free trial.

Do I need to be in shape to do CrossFit?

No.  You do not need to be “in shape”.  People come to CrossFit to get healthy!  We will start you out slowly.  We will help you scale the workouts to your own fitness level.  We can raise or lower the amount of weight or get rid of the weight completely.  We can lower the number of rounds or repetitions you will do.  We can also modify the exercises to match your level of fitness. Then as you get fitter we can modify it again to keep it challenging. Before you know it, you will be doing the exercise “as prescribed”.
