All clients new to CrossFit are required to attend of our introductory Fundamentals course to participate in Crossfit classes and workouts. Each session is about one hour long.
These two sessions to learn the fundamentals are critical. They ensure that there is a solid basic understanding of the movements so that the workouts can be performed safely.

If you are an experienced CrossFitter coming to us from another affiliate you are required to perform a Test Out with a Head Coach.
This slogan has a deep meaning at CrossFit Virginia Beach.
In the world of CrossFit intensity means something very specific and scientific: the ability to create power ((force x distance)/time) and to be able to do it in as many variations as possible. This is literally how we measure our fitness. We often see the results of intensity in the sweaty, fatigued athletes on the gym floor after a good workout. But there’s another kind of intensity too. The mental and emotional intensity that comes from facing a challenge that you thought to be impossible. And also the intensity of the group from the fire that shared suffering and achievement bring and in the support and depth of connection you can experience by being a part of it! Both can be a positive force in our lives and help move us towards health, happiness, and fulfillment. Physical and mental intensity are best informed and expressed through integrity. Integrity in our behavior and in our movement. On one hand when we talk about the integrity of a physical structure or body movement we mean connected, whole, and integrated. All of the parts are working together to maximize your will. This lends itself amazingly to the short and long term expression of physical intensity because learning to move with integrity both safeguards us from injury and increases our ability to express power. Integrity also speaks to character. Being honest with yourself about where you are in your journey and approaching each day with a beginner’s mind. Coaching with integrity means you can always expect honest and constructive feedback from us. This is the best way for us to help you achieve your goals, whether for that day’s training or for long term success!
