Do I need experience or some minimum level of fitness?

No. Our workouts and exercises scale to any level. We have trained clients from seventy four year old grandparents to people with all sorts of weight and physical limitations and they have all done great and so will you. We pride ourselves on our ability to scale the right movements with the right people at the right time to produce measurable results.

I have/had an injury. Is CrossFit still for me?

Members have successfully used CrossFit to rehabilitate from minor injuries. Because we have to move, work, and play in the real world regardless of injuries, learning and understanding proper form, technique is a prudent way to a long-term healthy lifestyle. By understanding and utilizing functional movements, we will slowly build strength in those movements, rather than to avoid them altogether. Our trainers and coaches are always happy to work with you to scale and substitute exercises, to tailor workouts to your abilities. If you have more serious injury we prefer you consult your physician before starting this (or any other) exercise program.

How do I start?

Call 240-230-7705 or email staff@tridentcrossfitva.com to schedule a free trial and get a taste of a Trident CrossFit workout and see if our community will be a good fit for you

Is it possible to skip the trial workout and come to the Workout of the Day (WOD) class, can I do that?

We take these cases on an individual bases. Typically we like everyone to complete the free baseline workout so our trainers can get a good gauge of your movement patterns, athletic ability and discuss your personal needs and goals.

Will CrossFit make me bulky?

Check out this article written by a non-bulky woman. But if you wanna get bulky we can do that too, remember CrossFit is scaleable in all directions.

I’m just visiting, but I’m a CrossFitter, can I attend a WOD?

We welcome experienced CrossFitters from all over the world. Please call or email first to set up a class time. When you arrive be sure to let your coach know you’re level of CrossFit experience and if you have any limitations if you’re a beginner let us know that as well, yes we’ll still let you work out. We have a $25 drop in charge ($20 for full-time mil/fire/police/students).

What if I don’t want to join Trident CrossFit but would prefer to strictly work with one of your trainers one-on-one?

You are more than welcome to do so. You can read about our staff on our trainers’ bios page and email us for more info on how to be matched up with a trainer. Our rates vary from trainer to trainer and there are discounts available for those looking for longer-term agreements

Do you take credit cards, cash, and personal checks?

Yes, we accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover, sorry AMEX but you are way too expensive and we like to keep our rates low.

Can I sign up for membership online through your website?

Yes you can. However, please be sure not to sign up for membership until you have successfully finished our free trial, we will gladly sign you up for a membership after that

Do you sell t-shirts?

Of course. Come on down to the box and pick one up, heck pick up two or three and give them to your friends, they are $20–cash, check or charge. (Just be sure to come by when we’re open for business and also be aware that our supply of various sizes will vary depending on what we have at the gym on any given day.)

Do you have showers?

Presently No. But we have two restrooms and a changing room and will provide wet wipes if necessary.

Can I just come to Trident and work out on my own?

No. We offer classes and one-on-one sessions, where people work out under coaches’ supervision, as it yields better, safer, and faster results than having people simply use the facility alone.

We also have an open gym membership provided to our Unlimited members.

Are there any other rules I should know about?

I’m glad you asked- yes there are three to be exact: 1. gotta be safe, 2. Gotta have fun and most importantly “NO HANDS ON HIPS”
