B Corps leading the way

B Corps are known for being leaders. Here are some of the ways B Corps make it easy to use a business as a force for good.

Going Climate+

As climate action becomes increasingly urgent, Tentree created this page to help customers offset the impact of their everyday activities. From binge watching Netflix to an international drive, they have just about everything covered.

Copy, paste, better business

Code for Australia found that documenting their policies and employee handbooks was hard work. To make it easier for other businesses to follow suit, they open-sourced everything from their certification process. Pretty nice, right?

Frequently asked questions

IS THERE ANY WAY TO TRY CROSSFIT WITHOUT COMMITTING TO A MEMBERSHIP?


Yes! The first class is always free and there are options for coming to either a regularly scheduled class time or a “CrossFit 101” class, which is our Introduction class.




CAN I COME TO CLASS WITH NO WORKOUT EXPERIENCE?


Absolutely. One of the best things about CrossFit is there are ways to “scale,” or adjust the workouts to safely get the most out of them for any type of person. Our oldest CrossFit participant has been 73 years old and our youngest 6 months (if you count airsquats holding a little one).




HOW LONG ARE THE WORKOUTS?


Right around sixty minutes.




WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN A TYPICAL WORKOUT?


Outside of “Benchmark” workouts that are designed to track progress over time, you should never see the same workout twice. Programming is designed so that there is constant variation of movement, weight, and duration. This means that one day may involve a shorter workout with heavier weights, and the next day, a workout designed for endurance with light weights and more repetitions. There is always a “Warm-Up” that is aimed to get the body going for what is in store that day, followed by the WOD. Saturdays we even throw in some crab-walk races, Tug-of War, and other games that will take you down memory lane to those childhood games (with a CrossFit twist, of course).




IS THERE OPEN GYM TIME?


The community that CrossFit creates helps to foster motivation, commitment and friendship through working out together. The class setting is one of the cornerstones of CrossFit; however, we do offer Open Gym 5x/wk for those looking to put in some extra work. See the Calendar for Open Gym times.




WHAT IS THE IDEAL FREQUENCY TO COME TO THE WORKOUTS?


With our research and how our programming is structured, we recommend a minimum 3x/wk frequency. This will ensure you are getting a good mix of the programming that will include strength, cardio, gymnastics, mobility and endurance training.




IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE WHILE I WORK OUT?


There is an unsupervised kids room with a tv, with plenty of space to do activities.
