FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. We use functional movements every day and we vary the load, duration, intensity and movements so that you are getting a different workout every single day.

No! CrossFit has an open business model – they are not a franchise. This means individual CrossFit boxes operate under their own philosophy and offer their own atmospheres; each owner and each staff is completely different. Recently big name gym’s have taken to offering “CrossFit” type classes, often taught by uncertified or inexperienced trainers to try to cash in on CrossFit’s growing reputation. CrossFit Fortis has been around since 2012 and is the only  CrossFit box in the Orleans area. We offer you a safe, fun, inclusive and challenging atmosphere to pursue your fitness goals. Come on in for a free trial to see what effect an awesome community has on your training!

We offer a few different membership options. We offer a 3 month twice a week package and we also offer an unlimited package in a 3, 6 or 12 month length. There is a family discount for signing up as a couple on the unlimited plan.

All members sign up for the class time of their choice each day. All CrossFit classes are running the same skill and workout each day so whether you come at 5:30 in the morning or 7:00pm at night you are doing the same workload as everyone else that day.

Absolutely not. The beauty of CrossFit is that everything we do is 100% scalable to each athletes’ fitness level and needs. The integrity of the workout is maintained so while you may be moving a lighter load or performing a slightly varied movement, you are doing the same workout at the same time of everyone else. Our coaches are always 100% engaged in the class and making sure you have the mechanics and movements down before moving forward in any workout.

No. We are a personalized coaching facility and community. You don’t pay us to use the equipment. You pay us to coach you and get results in your body and your mind. To do that, we all work out together and encourage one another. In a way, we’re like a sports team – except CrossFit is the sport of fitness.

We offer an Open House Class on Saturdays at 11:00am where you’ll be run through a scaled down class by one of our coaches with other first timers. No need to be nervous. Or you can try one of our regular classes for your Free Class but you’ll need to email us to set up a time that works based on class size and coaching availability. We want to make sure you get the attention and guidance you need to make your first visit an enjoyable experience.

We definitely do. Drop-In rate is $20 per class or you can buy a Fortis t-shirt and jump in on the class for free.

Sure. Any sport or training can be dangerous if you don’t do it properly and safely. We have trained Coaches that will guide you through the proper form and technique for every movement we do. The model is first Mechanics, then Consistency, and only then Intensity.

At CrossFit Fortis, you receive individual attention during every class from experienced Coaches. Our Coaches offer instruction on movements and proper form, modify or scale the workout to fit your personal needs, and provide advice, suggestions and feedback during your workout. You receive constant encouragement and support from your Fortis family and gain the knowledge and experience you need to improve your lifestyle. You’re basically doing personal training but in a group setting.
