I’m not sure if I want to join CPMFITness. Can I just drop in and try out a class?
You can try out a class when you are ‘pre-qualified’.
We are a coaching-driven program. We require that we get to know you — your history, where you are now in terms of your fitness, your goals, and everything relevant for us to work together.
To do that, we need to go through our assessment phase. If you are “already fit,” you would have the opportunity to “test out” of the Fundamentals Program (see next question).
- Questionnaire: Getting to Know You
- Fundamentals Program or Test Out
I’m fit already — do I have to start with your Fundamentals Program?
Have you been regularly squatting, dead lifting, and pressing? How about snatching and cleaning dumbbells? Climbing ropes?
We have established (high) movement standards that you must meet in order to gain entry to our regular group classes. If you are competent at performing basic gymnastics movements, the power and Olympic lifts, and are already fit, you may be a candidate for testing out of the Fundamentals Program and jumping into group classes.

I haven’t worked out in a really long time — will CPMFITness be too challenging for me?
Absolutely not! This is exactly why we have you go through our Assessment Phase. We can find out your exact goals and needs. From there, we can create a custom Fundamentals Program and focus on what you need most to find the fastest and most sustainable path to getting in your best shape.
We teach our clients how to lift weights, gain strength and flexibility, lose weight, and how to scale and modify workouts. You will then be fully equipped with everything you need to join our group classes and take full advantage of the intensity and community.
I really want to strengthen my “core” — will CPMFITness help?
Yes! We know that a weak trunk and poorly stabilized spine is the single most significant limiting factor in all human movement and sports. To this end, our programming specifically addresses trunk or “core” strength.
I don’t want to lift weights because I don’t want to get too muscular.
If you are really worried about this, read this article. But the short answer is no, lifting weights will not bulk you up. In fact, it will help you burn even more calories and look great.
Do you have showers?
Important question! Yes — we have showers and provide towel service.
