The answer is, that it is NOT expensive training at CrossFit Roughnecks!
First compare the cost of what you are paying for. With CrossFit, you have the complete package with no hidden cost for personal training, activation fees, or limitations on the number of times you can work out. Gym memberships are only the start of your cost at a regular globo gym.
At CrossFit Roughnecks you are getting a personal trainer at your beck and call 6 days/week, customized daily workout, one on one instruction, motivation, accountability, and results. An average personal trainer is going to charge you between $40-$100/hr at any large scaled "Do It Yourself" gym. Utilizing their services for 3x/week will cost you upwards of $500-$1,000/month. Your average cost for personal training at CrossFit Roughnecks is between $8-13/hr. If you wanted to do training before or after your class, you are welcome to stay and do extra work and still have guidance from your coach should you need it.
There are no machines here at CFR for you to figure out, which means you will be personally taught how to use functional movements in Olympic lifting, gymnastics, and many other forms that will soon become a part of your workout routine. Not only do you get top notch personal training that will actually produce results, but you get access to one of the greatest fitness communities there is. You are not a number at CFR, but a name and everyone will know your name when you walk in. It is a gym full of your peers that are there to support you and help you succeed. There are no age, ability, or fitness requirements and there are no egos in our gym. Everyone around you only wants the best for you and regardless of your ability will help you get there.
We also do monthly BBQ/Paleo parties at the gym where everyone gets to know each other and learn more about proper nutrition/diet. We also hold fundraisers, parties (live band), seminars, and other trainings at no extra cost to you.
If you have ever wondered why your regular $45/mo membership never gets used, then maybe you should look to something different. Its easy to let that membership slide each month, but how about you turn that money into an investment into your fitness.
