My husband and I worked out at Team CrossFit for three months until we had to move, and we really miss it!
The owner James runs the the box very professionally and is smart about the WOD programming. All the coaches are professional, encouraging, and helpful. They will meet you at your skill level. If you are a beginner, they'll walk you through all of the basic movements; and if you've been doing CrossFit for a while, they'll help you get even better. I liked the fact that they give step-by-step breakdowns of a skill, and then drill the movements to build proper muscle memory.
There's a whole spectrum of people who work out there, from beginners to hard-core athletes, and everyone in between. It's a good balance of younger and older people, and men and women. As the name suggests, there's a real team spirit and a friendly and encouraging environment.
Several things set Team CrossFit apart from other boxes I've been a member of or dropped-in on:
1) The coaches are focused on safety and proper technique. For lifting, they will make sure you're doing the exercise properly before you add too much weight. They'll even tell you to remove weight if your form starts getting sloppy; this is something I appreciate because I'm not interested in injuring myself! They actively pay attention to you when you're working out, making sure your form is correct and safe. I especially liked that they will encourage you to NOT tear your hands to a bloody mess while doing pull-ups. It's not really about safety, but more the fact that torn hands will prevent you from working out until they heal!
2) There's something for everyone at this box. It is unique in that it offers Krav Maga self-defense classes. For experienced CrossFitters who need equipment to use, there is an open-gym membership. There are kids classes three times a week and workshops once or twice a month.
3) The gym is super clean and super organized. All the equipment has its place so everyone knows where to find it next time and so there are no safety hazards. The members are quite good about wiping down the equipment with antibacterial wipes. I'm not germaphobic, but I still appreciated this.
If you're not so keen on proper form and standards, you may not like the coaching. For example, if you do 3/4 depth push-ups, the coaches regularly remind you to go down to full depth. But if you want to compete, you'll get good feedback because the coaches know the standards.
Whether you're unfamiliar or experienced with CrossFit, you should check this box out!
