Where are you located?
We are located on the corner of 1st and S. Mint St in the heart of Uptown Charlotte. We’re sandwiched between the Panthers Stadium and the BB&T Ballpark where we have a 9000sqft facility that is on the ground level of the parking structure connected to the Catalyst apartment building.
What is a WOD?
WOD stands for “workout of the day”. It’s the workout that will be done for the day’s classes. The WOD is programmed to challenge the most elite athletes of the box. Meaning, not everyone will be able to complete the workout as programmed without tweaking or modifying Volume, Load, or Intensity. Coaches will help with this aspect based on skill/experience level.
What is “Essentials”?
This is the platform we use to integrate newer athletes into our program. Basic barbell movements, body weight movements, and a short WOD are all part of the 3 session Essentials. Our focus is to execute the movements with proper form and technique to ensure safety. This also makes the entire process much less intimidating, makes the prospective athletes more coachable, and creates a seamless entry into the class setting.
I’m an experienced CrossFitter, do I have to attend Essential’s Classes?
We do offer a test out option free of charge. This is a 30min consultation with our head coach. We will evaluate your skills and movement to assess whether moving directly to the class setting would be appropriate.
Is there a prerequisite fitness level I must meet before becoming a CrossFitter?
Absolutely not! Regardless of your experience, skill level, or conditioning our program will work for you. The most common misconception of CrossFit is that you have to get in shape before coming in. Just like anything else in life you may have start from the bottom and build up. This is the scalability factor we refer to in both intro level courses and Essentials. Minor adjustments and tweaks to the workout that preserve the exercise stimulus and intensity we are looking to produce. This is a very individual thing.
I have/had an injury. Can I still do CrossFit?
So long as you’ve been cleared by your physician to once again participate in an exercise program it’d be likely that you could use CrossFit as a means to progress towards your fitness goals. Contact our staff to give us a better understanding of the underlying issue so we can be more helpful.
How much does a membership with Reebok CrossFit Charlotte cost?
We have a variety memberships available under our membership options on our website. In short, all of our options are unlimited. We always say these are perishable skills. We want you to build up to coming in 4 or more times per week. The 2 or even 3x/week option does not support our philosophy.
What is your cancellation policy?
Our month to month, 3 month, and 12 month contracts all auto-renew. Just give us a heads up before the next billing date and we can take care of it for you. We want you here so long as you want to be here. We don’t require blood and urine samples to cancel.
What is your guest policy?
We love having guests/drop ins. We offer a daily drop in rate of $20 or a weekly Unlimted pass for $50
Can I drop in at Reebok CFC Uptown and work out on my own?
Yes, so long as it does not interfere with the WOD and class schedule. We have a strength area set up just off of the floor that accommodates our open gym members and most things that you may want to do.
Who do I contact with questions?
Contact Andy Hendel:
Do you have showers?
We have 4 men’s showers and 3 women’s showers along with large changing areas and lockers. Check out our video tour located on our home page
Do you require membership contracts at your gym?
We do to some extent. Our 3 month and 12 month memberships are more like traditional contracts in that you are committing to that time frame. We also call the month to month a contract as well.
Why is CrossFit so expensive?
You’re signing up for coaching not just a gym membership. You can’t compare what we do with a general gym membership like a YMCA or a Gold’s Gym. We are professional coaches that train our athletes, not casual coaches that yell out that-a-boys and cheerlead for an hour.
