Choosing a CrossFit gym is a big deal. There are a lot of factors to consider so that you can find one that meets your needs and helps you achieve your fitness goals. In this article, we want to objectively look at some of the things to think about when selecting a fitness facility… and — not gonna lie — we’re also going to tell you how Rhapsody is awesome in those areas. 

Things to Consider When Choosing a CrossFit Gym 

When it comes to selecting the right CrossFit gym, you want to make sure to consider all the variables and tour the facility for yourself. Online pictures and reviews are helpful but there’s nothing like stepping inside and getting a feel for it all. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you’re weighing options.

Experienced and qualified coaches: Make sure the gym has experienced and certified CrossFit coaches who can guide you through proper technique and form. 

Programming: Look for a gym that offers a well-designed programming schedule that balances strength, endurance, and mobility training. This should include a mix of different workouts. 

Community: CrossFit is known for its supportive community and engaging environment. Look for a gym that has a welcoming atmosphere and encourages members to motivate each other. 

Equipment and facilities: Check the equipment to ensure it is maintained, safe, and right for your fitness level. Take a look at the other facilities, too. 

Scheduling: Look for a gym that offers a flexible schedule to accommodate you. This may include morning or night classes or open workout times — whatever you need.
