So what exactly is CrossFit and are we actually a CrossFit box? I’ve been told by some that we aren’t and I’ve also heard that I should just drop the CrossFit Port Moody affiliate name all together. Do you know what CrossFit is? Read on and find out.read more
We raise the bar for functional fitness
Note: Due to current Provincial Health Orders we are not offering classes. Independent Training is available, with modified Functional Fitness programming for those interested in Functional Fitness training style. We do not offer HIIT-style workouts, and at this time, we have eliminated all indoor conditioning work.
Whether you’re a gym rookie or a seasoned athlete, our client intake process for our Functional Fitness program is designed to set you up with the best possible foundation from which you will start building your fitness.
Please click the tab that best describes you to learn more about our new client intake process.
I'm new to Functional Fitness
If you have never done Functional Fitness before or you’re relatively new to strength & conditioning training, then our Rookie Foundations membership is right for you.
The Rookie Foundations membership includes a private joint-mobility assessment session, a health coaching session, six semi-private Movement Fundamental (MoFun) sessions, and unlimited access to all of our training times. As a brand new client, you get a complete training package that’s designed to ensure your joints are moving well and that you’re equipped with the best possible foundation of knowledge to start training in our friendly group class setting.
STEP 1: Consultation
Book a consultation in the box below to start the process as a rookie member. You’ll then receive a questionnaire from us asking you about your goals, lifestyle, your injury history and your experience with training. You’ll fill out the questionnaire and send it back to us prior to your consultation. At your consultation, we’ll go over your questionnaire answers and we’ll answer any questions you may have. We’ll also conduct a full-body, joint-mobility screen to establish a baseline of your joint-health and joint-function. This will give us an idea of your risk to injury before you start your fitness journey.
Once you’ve decided to commit and purchase the Rookie Foundations membership, we’ll then book your private assessment session, private health coaching session, and all six of your MoFun sessions at times that work for your busy schedule.
STEP 2: Private Assessment & Health Coaching Session
If you haven’t moved in a while and you know you have some tightness or if you intermittently feel some discomfort during certain movements, the results of your full-body, joint-mobility screen in your consultation will indicate that. The next step would be to work with one of our qualified coaches in your private assessment session where we assess your current joint function and joint health and prescribe you with an individualized mobility-training program so you can improve.
Your health coaching session is designed to review your current lifestyle and see how you can modify it so that the work you put into your training will pay off.
STEP 3: Movement Fundamentals (MoFun)
Our Movement Fundamentals (MoFun) Program consists of 6 sessions. You will learn how to correctly perform the basic exercises we use in Functional Fitness training. Don’t have a pull-up for example? No worries! You will learn your appropriate progression for any specific movements that you may not have as you work towards your fitness goals.
- Session 1: The Deadlift
- Session 2: Calisthenics (push/pull)
- Session 3: The Squats
- Session 4: Weightlifting 101
- Session 5: Functional Fitness Essentials
- Session 6: Kettlebells 101
Once you’ve completed all six of your MoFun sessions, our coaches will have all the information they need to formulate the most appropriate training plan and schedule for you to execute that will help you achieve your fitness goals. You will also have access to our full training schedule! As per Provincial Health Orders, all training times are for individual workouts - there are no group classes at this time. In our Functional Fitness program, all FF members have access to their training program through TrainHeroic. A coach will assist with questions, and help you with any specific exercise progression on the movements prescribed in the program. Keep working on it and you’ll get that first pull-up, first push-up, or lift more weight than you ever thought you could. The training program is designed to be fun, challenging, and encouraging as you will develop camaraderie (from a distance!) with your fellow gym members that will help motivate you and push you as you work towards your fitness goals. Get ready to move like you’ve never moved before!!
As you can see, our rookie client intake process is designed specifically to help ease you into our training process while educating you on principles to help mitigate your risk to injury, educate you on creating healthy habits to support your training, educate you on how to perform basic exercises and what progressions are appropriate for your level, and to give you confidence for when you start training on your own.
Are you an experienced CrossFitter?
Have you been doing CrossFit/Functional Fitness consistently for over 6-months at a CrossFit affiliate and you’re looking for a new home? We’d love to have you join our community so we designed a Seasoned Athlete Membership and process that will help seasoned CrossFitters transition into their new home at Engineered Bodies.
Book a consultation here to start the process as a seasoned athlete member. You’ll then receive a questionnaire from us asking you about your goals, lifestyle, your injury history and your experience with training. You’ll fill out the questionnaire and send it back to us prior to your consultation. At your consultation, we’ll go over your questionnaire answers, conduct a full-body, joint-mobility assessment, and answer any questions you may have. Once you’ve decided to commit and purchase the Seasoned Athlete membership, you’ll be good to go and ready to jump in and start training.
If you’re an experienced CrossFitter with a membership at another affiliate and you’d like to visit, please contact us. Due to COVID protocols, we are not permitting drop ins.
