What will my first time in your gym be like?
Your first time in, we want you to feel comfortable. One of our awesome coaches will give you a tour of the facilities, we’ll sit down with you and walk through your goals, we’ll do a quick fitness assessment with you, and we’ll walk through what you can expect.
I’m not in very good shape… can I do any of your classes?
The very first thing you will discover is that Storm King does not discriminate. Whether you are young at heart, or have just completed your 50th marathon, or are recovering from injury or healing a broken heart, whether walking the dog is the only exercise you’ve had in years, or you’re someone training for the Iditarod…We will help you achieve your fitness goals.
One of the things that makes Storm King so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, elite athletes, students, CEOs, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it. Storm King bodies – our bodies – come in every imaginable size, shape and age; and yet, our workouts every day are designed for anyone to do them.
How often do you recommend I come to the gym?
If you’re just starting up, we recommend coming three to four days/week for your first couple weeks, then build to four to five. Once you’re up to five days per week, we recommend building in two recovery days per week.
Do You Only Do CrossFit?
No! At Storm King, we offer a variety of classes to meet our community needs. We have CrossFit, Thrive Boot Camp, Pulse (Cardio Only), Barbell Club, Nutrition Coaching, Remote Coaching, Endurance Coaching, Storm King Kids Classes, Personal Training, and much more. At Storm King, it’s our job to make sure we offer the most comprehensive classes around. Just like you, we’re always evolving.
Do I need to reserve a spot or contact anyone?
Please use the Schedule to “Enroll”. You will fill out your account information, provide payment, and sign the waiver. We do not turn anyone away. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the “Contact Form” if you have any questions.
I'm looking for a new gym and I’d like to check you out prior to joining.
Based on experience we will let you try any of our classes for free for one day. If after your free day you feel Storm King Athletic Club is the right gym for you, we’ll get you started and on your way. Please contact us at email@example.com.
Can I do my own thing?
For any experienced members we have Open Gym times where you can follow your own programming. We only ask that you follow our house rules.
- Check in before working out.
- Clips on all bars with weight even while warming up. No exceptions.
- Have fun!
Why is your gym more expensive than other gyms?
We know you may have a lot of choices on where to workout. What’s best… A treadmill at home? The gym down the street that is $40/month? A boutique membership and Storm King? We’d actually encourage you to ask a different question. What are your goals? Personalized attention? Trained, professional coaches? Accountability? Working out with a group of like-minded people who cheer on your success? If the answer to any of the above is “yes”, then we’d encourage you to check us out.
What’s your drop-in policy?
We love nothing more than having visitors from other boxes come “throw down” with us!
If you are just passing through, we charge a drop in fee of $15 per day.
It’d be great if you’d plan on arriving 15 minutes before scheduled class time so we can provide you with a waiver to sign and introduce you to our box. You can find our class schedule Here.
You may find that we do things a little differently than your “box back home.” We hope that you enjoy the change in scenery, clientele, maybe even music. If anything makes you uncomfortable, however, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
What exactly is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness program that will change your life. By it’s definition, it uses “constantly varied, functional movement performed at a relative high intensity”. As a truly functional program, the difficulty level of our daily workouts is designed to be increased or decreased, depending upon the individual. This makes them doable by anyone.
Daily workouts could include things such as core conditioning, rowing, sprinting, gymnastics, lifting, etc. And all our workouts are designed to improve overall flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, and agility.
