FREE ON RAMP CLASSES

Interested in Crossfit but intimidated by what you've seen on ESPN and countless YouTube videos?

We are excited to announce that we will be offering a special new promotion to ALL interested athletes of ANY fitness level at Humboldt Crossfit in Eureka as well as our new Arcata location opening soon! 

We are offering a FREE Two Week On-Ramp course which will consist of 6 small group training sessions led by our certified instructors.  

If you are completely new to CrossFit, you will need to start with our On-Ramp series. This series will familiarize you with the 9 foundational movements found in CrossFit. We require this to ensure that you are able to safely perform a workout before you join our regular daily classes.

Aside from learning the essential movements of Crossfit, attendees will receive a better understanding of the philosophy behind the Crossfit training program as well as our nutritional strategies.

Our average member comes 3 or 4 times per week, and experiences incredible results as you begin a lifelong, social fitness journey.

Each athlete will be required to attend ALL of the 6 classes in order to perform the movements safely by the end of the series. The group On-Ramp series will introduce the following:

  • Squats, Presses, Deadlift
  • Basic Gymnastics Movements
  • Olympic Lifting (Clean & Jerk, Snatch)
  • Cardiovascular Conditioning (MetCon)  
  • Mobility
  • Safety

To give our athletes the best possible experience, we are offering this promotion in order to introduce new athletes to the CrossFit methodology and movements in a comfortable, safe environment.  The classes are designed to help you build the confidence and familiarity with what we do in our everyday classes.

The next FREE On-Ramp begins July 28th!  Classes will fill up quickly so come down to the gym in person or click the link below and Email us your First and Last name with the heading "On-Ramp Class"  to save your spot today!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”


I've posted this quote every year during the Open, and this year its for you Kim!  You're in the arena, there'll be dust, sweat (lots) and blood (hopefully not too much) and in the end you will know the triumph of high achievement!! You are already there! You've got a whole community of people behind you and we could not be happier to have you representing us! Now go show them what HCF is made of!!!!!!!!!
