Strong Side Crossfit in Louisville coach clean finish DSC_0345







Most gyms dump you into regular classes with little or no instruction. With the complexity and the intensity of CrossFit, this essentially sets you up for failure. We believe in a higher level of coaching and want to thoroughly educate our athletes before releasing them into regular classes. On top of that, we’re so confident you’ll love our program, our coaches, and our community, that we’ll give you the first 2 weeks for FREE!

You will be required to complete all 9 of the foundational movements to Crossfit standards ( i.e full range of motion) in order to move on to level 1 WOD(workout of the day) group classes. Each movement builds upon another so it is crucial that you attend each class to become proficient with the movements. Plain and simple, if you do not attend the classes, you aren’t learning the key movements required to advance.
