      Hi David,

      Come on by and talk to Garrick. He will set you up with a waiver and introduce you to CrossFit. If you could get there around 4:55 it would be better so we can get you all settled in before class actually starts.

    Coming into town to visit family and wondering if it was okay to pay a drop in fee to catch a workout with you all on Monday and Tuesday while I’m in town ? Please just let me know.

    Thank you

      Hi There,

      Sorry we missed this comment yesterday! By now you’ve probably figured out that all you need to do is come in. Please try to arrive about 15 minutes before the class you wish to attend so we can give you a brief orientation and get you to sign our new athlete waiver. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

      Hi Kathy,

      Sorry if you’ve already followed up on this, but the next step is to just come on in! For people who are brand new to CrossFit, we recommend coming in for the 8PM class, which tends to be smaller so you can get more individual attention. Since you’ve signed the waiver there is no need to get there extra early. Show up around 7:50 or so and you will have time to settle in and get ready to sweat.

      See you at the box!

    Having an issue completing waiver from phone and pad. The kids have lost the mouse and now I can’t complete it from the PC. I’ll stop by again tomorrow to see if you have a hard copy.

    Hello. I really want to try CrossFit, however, my concern is the lack of personal attention to newbies like me. I have tried several Boot Camps in the area and what I disliked about them was the fact that the instructors do not take into consideration there are beginners in the class. That led to me quiting because I felt like I was never going to catch up w/the advanced people. I don’t expect to have one on one, but some extent of attention until the movements are mastered and progress is visible.
    I guess my questions to you are:
    What is your procedure when dealing with newbies like me?
    What are your prices should I decide to join after my 2 week trial?
    I also saw a deal on Living Social, should I decide to go that route, do you offer any discounts if we sign up after the 30dys?

    I literally live down the street from you.. on 250th. I drive by every day since I work off Lomita Blvd and Oak St. There is NO excuse for me to get started. I used to have a trainer and I miss it. I need all the motivation I can get.

    Thanks you for your prompt response.

      Hi Lydia,

      Sorry I missed your comment before. The thing about CrossFit is that nobody has never been a newbie at it. Sure some people have lifted weights and stuff, but for the most part it is a lot different than anything else. Because of this, everyone you’ll be working out with has been in your shoes at some point in time. There may be other new people at the class you go to, or there could be experts, but regardless, they will know your struggle.

      At CrossFit Provoke we do a pretty good job at scaling workouts for beginners and Coach G will notice if you need special attention and you will get it. We often provide one-on-one coaching during an exercise for those that are having a rough time picking up the movements. It’s not like we give you a workout and expect you to just know how to do it.

      It’s important not to get discouraged when you see people who have more experience than you knocking out the movements like nothing when you’re struggling mightily. Eventually you will get to the point where the movements are natural, and it’s our job to get you to that point so you can start adding weight and improving your fitness.

      The great thing about CrossFit is the external motivation you get from people you work out with or meet at the box. Personally I’ve never been able to stick to an exercise routine when it’s just me. I get to the point where I know I need to work out, but the bed looks so much nicer or I really want to watch that TV show instead. Working out with a group in a tight community keeps you kind of accountable, so the external motivation is there even when you’re lacking internal motivation.

      Just stop by the box and talk to Coach G and we’ll get you all set up.

    I’m interested starting on Monday at 8:00PM. I already filled out and signed the waiver online. How should I proceed. Mobile: (310)738-3247

    Hello! My name is Hannah. I’ve never done Crossfit, but am interested in joining…. Now with this being said, what would be good for a beginner who has never taken part of this and doesn’t have beastly muscles nor cardio? I’m honestly nervous even thinking of coming in, as I am not a master, nor have ever been, of fitness. I want to be in better shape, and want the training for the police department. Help?!? Where do I start?

  • Jon HIldebrand

    Bought the Living social deal for my son who just turned 10 for the Crossfit Kids.

    I am interested in starting him on the Monday classes at 4 pm. What are the next steps we need to take?
