I am intested in training classes for my 12 and 13 year old daughters….both are athletes and I believe would benfit from increasing their strenght and agility. Would CrossFit be right for my daughters?
Hey Carl, that’s exacly what CrossFit is all about and it’s right for athlete’s of any age! We focus on all 10 aspects of fitness:strength, speed, power, stamina, agility, acuracy, balance, flexability, cardiovascular endurance and coordination. Bring them in to try a class for free any evening and 5 or 6 P.M., I have extra trainers on hand at tha time. Let me know if you have any more questions.
very interested in beginning crossfit coming this august. Just had questions concerning the best time for a beginner to come and start a class and become acquainted and also how long an average class takes and how often a beginner Crossfit patron should attend classes per week? Thank you
Peter, I would say any of the class would be fine for you to stop on by. As Tommy stated above, there are usually more trainers at the 5p and 6p classes. Each class is different, each workout is different. Some workouts are 10 minutes long and some could be 40 minutes long. You can usually expect to be there for an hour from warmup to the cashout workout after the main workout. Each person works at their own level based on their experience so there is no issue with coming several days a week. You will see most people working out 2 or 3 days then taking a day off and continuing at that pace. I am sure Tommy will also comment on this but I just wanted to give you some info while you wait. By the way, the 4p class is the BEST! Stop on by and give Crossfit Scranton a try.
I am presently on work assignment in Cambodia and have been here for about 5 years. I return to the Scranton area in March 2012. I have been weightlifting and powerlifting for the past 18 years but I came across CrossFit with a friend here about 3 years ago, but there is no one doing that here. So I am interested doing CrossFit when I return and stay for about 10 months. Hopefully I will learn enough to bring some equipment back to Cambodia to do it here as well. I am not interested in losing weight, on the contrary been trying to gain here which can be difficult at times. Just looking at what appears to me to be an all around good program. I will be basing out of Mt. Cobb and commuting a lot to Clarks Summit. I am 55, but I was told that is not an issue for CrossFit, correcct?
Hey Rob, that’s right…CrossFit is for all ages so come on down when you get to settled and we’ll get you started! Just show up a little early for any of the scheduled classes. We look foreward to meeting you!
Hope to see you come down as soon as you can. Join the fun and get hooked on CF like the rest of us. The community is great, Coaching is great, bottomline, CF is great at CF Scranton.

Hi, i was wondering if i sign up for an unlimited membership does that mean i could still work with a personal trainer? I don’t usually work out in gyms and also play in a band and don’t want to end up over doing something
