We accept cash, cheque, credit card, and gold doubloons. If signing up for a long term contract, you need not pay a lump sum. You only have to pay for your first month and last month’s membership rate. Rest assured, we will never bill your credit card for the whole term.

Are there free trials?

You bet! Just contact us to reserve a slot for our trial classes.

 

I’m not sure I can do this. How can I be sure I’ll be able to keep up?

The beauty of CrossFit programming is universal scalability. We scale the wod based on your abilities and work capacity. You move at your own pace and you work your way up the ladder. We also have beginner bootcamp classes for those who are not ready to lift weights, and our Intro to CrossFit classes will prepare you to perform the movements properly and safely.

 

What is the beginner bootcamp class all about?

Our Beginner Bootcamp class, as the name implies, is bodyweight only. This class was designed for those new to CrossFit. This class features plyometrics, calisthenics, Tabata training, cardio-training, etc. All our Trial classes begin here.

 

What is the Intro to CrossFit class all about?

Our Intro to CrossFit class is designed to prepare rookie CrossFitters with the different foundational movements of CrossFit. Before a client can participate in the regular Wod classes, they have to graduate from our Intro to CrossFit series. This is a 2 part class, scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays or Saturdays. Each class lasts an hour and we also briefly discuss CrossFit history, methodology, philosophy, etc. We feel it’s not just important to know “how” to do the movements, but also “why” we do the movements.

 

Will this type of training help me get stronger?

Yes! Here at CrossFit Ortigas, we spend 10-20 minutes of each class improving either a skillset or strength-training. We believe that strength is a major component of fitness.

 

Will this type of training help me lose weight?

Yes! If by losing weight, you mean being leaner and fitter. With the type of metabolic conditioning involved in CrossFit training, your body won’t have a choice but to burn body fat.

 

What if I don’t get any results?

In the extremely rare case that you don’t net any results from this type of training, CrossFit Ortigas will gladly refund your 1st month’s membership fee. This is what sets us apart from other gyms/fitness centers. We stand behind our training methodology. Please visit the box for more details.

 

I have existing injuries; will I still be able to do CrossFit?

For the most part, yes! We have to assess what type of injuries and physical limitations you have, and we will work around them. Bear in mind that there are CrossFitters all over the world with similar or worse impediments and they haven’t let it stop them from becoming fit.
