“Like most I guess, I had a twisty-turny fitness journey before I mustered up the courage to cross the threshold of this Cross Fit gym and introduce myself to the owners, Tim and Eamon.”
I want to try functional fitness but I don't know it if is right for me?
You never know until you try! Our belief is that anyone can do functional fitness. Our members come from a number of different backgrounds and ability levels, and they all find success within our walls. You don't need to be 'in shape' to do functional fitness. You do need to be open-minded, committed to learning, and dedicated to the process of taking your health and wellness into your control. Come see for yourself!
What if the workouts are too difficult for me?
One of the many great things about functional fitness is that any workout that we do is universally scaleable to your individual ability, every day. We have collegiate athletes working out next to Max, our first 86-year-old member! Our coaches are the best in the area, and will always help keep you safe while you focus on getting fit!
What is Foundations?
Foundations is our mandatory introductory course for potential members who have never done functional fitness before. These sessions are individually scheduled with one of our coaches and can be accommodated for 1-6 people. During this class you will learn the basics of safe and efficient movement, allow your body to adjust to a new training style, and get to integrate into our growing community of athletes.
What in the world is a 3-1-2-1?
This is the work/rest day format that we adhere to here at Pallas Fitness, and what we recommend to those of our members who attend the gym 5 days per week. What this means for our 3x/week athletes, is that Thursday is technically a rest day - with M/T/W, F/Sat, being our work days, and Sunday a universal rest day as we are closed. Thursdays at Pallas Fitness are coached open gym, with the same class schedule as every other day. On these coached open gym days, we encourage athletes to make up a workout they missed earlier in the week, work on skills/weaknesses, or ask a coach to craft a workout targeting an area they want to work on! It's a great day to really pick the brains of our coaching staff and get some individual coaching on whatever movements you need work on!
How early do I need to get there before my class?
We expect athletes to be ready to go at the class time. That means gym clothes and shoes on, and any gear you may need for the work out. There is a coach led group warm up, but if you need some extra time to work some of the kinks out, get there 10-15 minutes early. As long as there is a coach there, the gym is open!
