Elements:Learn the Basics
What is Elements?
If you are new to CrossFit, Elements is mandatory before jumping into any of our CrossFit classes. You will be required to complete at least 4 private sessions with one of our Coaches in order to set you up for the best success moving forward.
Elements is our beginner's course designed to teach you what we do and how you can do it too. We cover everything you need to know about jumping into our program. We will learn how to squat, work through appropriate pull-up progressions, and everything else in between so that when you start your first class you are not lost or feel behind the curve. Anyone can jump into Elements, learn the basics and start CrossFit with us. We want to set you up for the best long-term success and make sure we find ACCURACY, build CONSISTENCY, and then add INTENSITY. By starting off with our Elements program you will learn to do exactly that!

Common CrossFit Myths
MYTH: I need to get in shape to do CrossFit.
Absolutely not, we have people that often start exercising for the first time in our program. We will scale and modify every workout to fit your level and ability.
MYTH: CrossFit is Dangerous and I am worried I’ll get hurt.
Any time you start exercising you are taking a risk, but doing it on your own without professional coaching and programming is riskier than joining CrossFit. Movement is our profession and one we don’t take lightly. Our goal is to help guide you throughout your fitness journey so that you are not only getting results but also minimizing risk along the way. At Black Iron, you will always have eyes on you and we will make sure you know exactly what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. Accuracy, Consistency, and Intensity… in that order, ALWAYS!
MYTH: If I do CrossFit I will get “bulky”.
Doing CrossFit will absolutely not make you “bulky”. It’s quite the opposite, most commonly we see people lose body fat and gain muscle but not “bulk”. Specific body composition changes can be made with the proper nutrition and consistency. That being said if you are not eating to gain, you won’t gain and gaining muscle is by far hard to do than losing fat. If you’d like more information on dialing in your nutrition to help you reach your goals faster and increase your performance we have a full-time nutrition program that will set you up for success.
