What does a typical CrossFit class look like?
Is it right for me?
Yeah, but I am over 60.
CrossFit is an effective and efficient way for the 60+ age group to recover, rebuild & maintain a youthful and vibrant level of fitness in body, mind and spirit. Regardless of age or ability, the beauty of this program is that it is completely scalable to meet you where you’re at.

What can I expect?
All of our classes are coach-led and group-based. We limit our classes to smaller sizes so that everyone gets individual attention and is seen. Every workout is different. Routine is the enemy and we strive for constantly varied programming. Your class members and coaches will be your biggest fans and we will push you towards your goals and celebrate your successes.
Is it safe?

What is Open Gym?
Open Gym means athletes are allowed to use CrossFit Morden’s facility at their own discretion during this time. Perhaps you are almost nailing that muscle-up, but not quite there. There’s a workout you missed and you would really like to make it up so you can see how your time compares to your CrossFit buddy. Or maybe you want to spend a little time on a lift technique. The beauty of Open Gym is that you will have the freedom to work on whatever you desire* (with some exceptions).
A couple of rules:
1. Basic gym etiquette still applies. Wipe down and put all your own equipment away.
2. This is for members only. You cannot bring friends and family along to work out with you.
3. Open Gym is included in our memberships and treated as one of your classes per week.
4. Follow the coaches instructions, no exceptions.
5. If you need to use the clock or change the playlist, ask the coach to set it up. Otherwise, you can use your phone as a timer if necessary.
6. Open Gym starts and ends on time.
*7. Because a coach is not directly managing athletes during open gym, certain forms of maximum intensity exercise are not permitted. This is a safety concern and will require some judgment on your part. Examples of “not allowed” exercises include Hero WODs, the Girls, and max. effort (>85%) Olympic lifting movements. If you want to max out your double-unders, row a 2K, or see how many sit-ups you can do in 2 minutes, knock yourself out. Bottom line: check in with the coach and let him or her know what your workout plan is for your Open Gym session. This policy is subject to interpretation by the coach on staff, and we reserve the coach’s right to squash any unsafe activity at any time.
