Introduction to CrossFit

For many new athletes, CrossFit can seem intimidating or unattainable, but nothing could be further from the truth. At CrossFit Homeward, we want to do our part in changing that perception by helping athletes to understand that CrossFit's infinite scalability allows the same programming to be useful for athletes of all levels.


"But coach, how am I going to learn to do all that stuff?"

No worries at all, your CrossFit membership begins with a three-session Foundations course (required for all new CrossFitters) conducted in either one-on-one or very small group sessions. In these sessions, you'll learn the foundational movements upon which we build the rest of our programming. After finishing your On-Ramp, you'll be ready to jump into our regularly scheduled CrossFit WODs on any day you choose.


Why Is CrossFit So Expensive?

We are expensive because we invest in our members! We invest in recruiting the most educated staff and paying them accordingly (Orange County Living Wage certified) which provides members with education and feedback about their performance and movement that they could not receive elsewhere. We also invest in providing the largest and best facility in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area. It is important, however, to recognize that you are not paying for a pile of equipment, you are paying to change your life for the better.

CrossFit also has the potential to become the social highlight of your day, as members often spend time before and after class hanging out. In addition, Homeward hosts a variety of social events for members to have time to meet outside of the gym. Having a group of like-minded individuals will help drive you to succeed in achieving your fitness goals.
