Step 2: Foundations

Welcome to Step 2!

Foundations is required before entering into our group CrossFit classes. Attendance to all sessions/classes is imperative to your progress.

The primary option for completing Step 2: Foundations is Individual Sessions.

Occasionally a Group Class Option may be offered – we will note the dates & times of this course under the section to the right. If no date is noted, Individual Sessions are the only option available.

During the Foundations course, our goal is to introduce you to the fundamental movements you will see in our regular CrossFit classes, to spend time discussing the role of nutrition, and to find out a little about you.

We will introduce the correct technique & discuss range of motion requirements for:

  • Squats: air squat, back squat, front squat, overhead squat
  • Presses: shoulder press, push press
  • Hip Hinge: deadlift, romanian deadlift, kettlbell swings
  • Gymnastics: pull-up, push-up, burpee, handstands
  • Olympic Movements: discuss the clean & jerk and snatch which are movements you will be introduced to later in our group classes
  • Other common movements: rowing, jump rope, thrusters, wall ball, box jumps

Please understand that all movements have modifications and we are excited to work with all abilities.

We will also briefly overview the concept of the Paleo Diet.  Nutrition is often overlooked when training, but to us it is the foundation of fitness.  Though you don’t need to follow a nutritional program to be a part of CrossFit Uncommon, we want you to look and feel good.
