To hear it how Crossfit HQ says it:

What should I expect in a class?

Classes are 1 hour long.

You will “WOD” (see FAQ for Crossfit terminology) with a maximum of 25 people (of all ability levels) and 1-4 coaches running the class.

Class structure will go like this:

  1. Whiteboard talk
  2. Mobility work

  4. Task-specific warm-up
  5. Strength/Skill work
  6. WOD [4-30 minutes in length]
