On Ramp class dates: 2 weeks – 3 x a week
So you’ve done a free intro and you realized that CrossFit is just the thing you need. Or you saw The CrossFit Games on ESPN and said to yourself “you know, I’d really like to be able to walk 75 meters on my hands and do multiple rope ascents intermingled with some heavy clean and jerks (because, hey, who doesn’t say that when watching The Games).” Or maybe you’ve just decided that you’re going to start. Whatever your reason, if you’re looking to get going at CrossFit Playground, this is the page for you!
Why On Ramp?
There are a lot of reasons that we require the On Ramp be completed by new athletes. We use it as a method to determine your overall fitness, and to make note of any issues / areas of work that need to be watched when you join the main group.
We also use it as an opportunity to get you versed in the CrossFit vernacular. If you don’t know what WOD, AMRAP, thruster, burpee, squat cleans, box jump, and kipping are, you will once you are done with the On Ramp.
The main reason that we have you go through the On Ramp is so that we can teach you how to do the foundational CrossFit movements safely and effectively. Our number one goal is to keep you progressing as an athlete, and no one will progress as an athlete if they are injured. Going through the On Ramp Process has the additional benefit of allowing new athletes to develop a sense of community with their fellow athletes and with their On Ramp Coaches prior to joining the main group.
How long does the On Ramp last?
The On Ramp is six sessions over a two week period. Each session will last approximately one hour, although sessions occasionally go longer depending on the dynamics and progress of the On Ramp group.
