All you need is 3 days a week to build strength & conditioning.
Every day will challenge you differently.
We’ll fix your form & tell you what weights to use.
This is not a required first step, but what most people don’t know is that QuickFIt and CrossFit are versions of each other. QuickFit will get you stronger and improve body awareness, so when you join CrossFit classes you’ll feel better when it’s time to learn handstands, climb rope, lift really heavy, etc.
We suggest QuickFit as a step 1 prior to joining HCF classes. Those who attend 3x/week QuickFit for at least 4 weeks, will save $50. Set up a consult to learn more.
On Ramp is Not a program that gets you fit – it’s a program that teaches you proper movement mechanics and tests your fitness baseline:
Front Squat Heavy Single
Shoulder Press Heavy Single
2-minute double under test
2k row time trial
5 minute bike time trial
We offer classes from 5:30am-6:45pm start times. See the schedule page for a full list of Class times.
When you enroll in On Ramp, you are also committing to attending at least 1 month of CrossFit classes. An auto-payment will process automatically on the 1st of the following month with a 3x, 4x, or 5x/week monthly membership. Ask about our semester student plan available in January, May and September.
A full description of our memberships, class policies, and membership change form can be found on the membership details and policies page
CrossFit workouts are not generated at random. It is thoughtfully approached by Coach Shaun to ensure you are using the right muscles and the right intensities on the right days. Workouts constantly vary heavy lifting, short intense, long enduring, and include daily skills training to help you develop as an athlete and meet your exercise goals.
Do you have no idea what this stuff means? That’s ok. That’s why we developed QuickFit and On Ramp.
Do you see a movement you’re not strong enough to do? We accommodate everyone. That’s why after 10 years, we’re still serving our community!
Do you see a movement the Dr. told you to stay away from, like running? That’s ok. We have modifications to make sure you get a good workout. Schedule a consult to talk with a coach.
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to settle in and perform mobility and flexibility techniques (you’ll learn these). We expect you to introduce yourself to people you don’t know!! All you have to do is say, “Hi” and you’ve met a friend.
You are now giving undivided attention to your coach. He/She is an expert and has a plan to ensure everyone is safe, knows what they are doing at all times, and that you have a successful workout.
5-15 minutes in length. We will include movements that increase your heart rate as well as add dynamic stretching components to prepare you for the workout.
Deep tissue mashing and stretching will help you increase range of motion and get you into better movement positions that will help you move efficiently and safely.
Quality is what we’re known for. The coaches will review all the movements in the workout and help you scale the workout to your fitness level.
Coach Shaun programs all HCF workouts; they are programmed precisely for the members in our gym to improve strength and conditioning. Show up at least 3 days a week to get the results you want.
When you commit for the hour, you stay for the hour. You are on a team with your classmates, and you stay together until everyone’s done.
It’s in your best interested to cool your body down and perform post-mobility stretching. The coach will provide their suggestions, but it may not be trainer-led.
When you go to the gym and ask people what it means to be fit, no one’s really sure. You may be a great runner but have trouble with flexibility and strength. You may be a lifter, but have a hard time in the cardiovascular zone. Those who train sports-specific routines are going to the best in their respective sports. THATS AWESOME!
But for the average person, perhaps you who is reading this right now, you’re not training for sports-specific activities. You want to lose a few pounds, be a part of a community who’s going to accept you, have a coach who fixes your form and tells you what weights to use, tone your muscles, be a little stronger, and look a little sexier naked.
When you Join Hoosier CrossFit, you will develop well-rounded fitness become really good in all areas, not specializing in any one area. You’re going to learn highly technical skills that derive from functional movements that can be transferred outside of the gym to empower you, not just physically, but mentally. And you WILL feel like a badass. Commit to at least 3 days a week of CrossFit, and you won’t regret it.
Workouts are broad, general, and inclusive, meaning you’re going to be exposed to a spectrum of strengths and weaknesses on any given day. Our coaches are experts in delivering advanced skill techniques to help you feel determined to overcome adversity, not defeated.
While CrossFit is an affiliation, vs. a franchise; workouts are not supplied by CrossFit Headquarters and each affiliate has the freedom to operate their gym as they see fit. Shaun, owner of Hoosier Athletic Club and head coach, has over 10 years of hands-on experience of coaching and programming as well as continuing education and research.
An 8-week cycle begins with a benchmark test and concludes with a re-test; each benchmark emphasizes a different variable in your training. Possible benchmarks may test your endurance, strength, stamina, skills, or a little bit of everything. During those 8-weeks, you’re preparing for that re-test. With long-term commitment, you end up developing a variety of skills, strength, and conditioning over many more 8-week cycles.
Will you think some cycles really suck? Yes, because if you’re a cardio junkie, then you aren’t going to like a strength cycle where 3 days a week is a strength day with 1 accessory day and one longer/enduring cardio day. But hear us out; If we weren’t delivering results to our members, we wouldn’t be a success today. Join Hoosier CrossFit because you trust our methodology; you trust you’re getting the most well-thought out workouts, the highest quality of education in group training, and you, too will get the results you want.
When you begin to skip days because you don’t think they are intense enough or don’t enjoy doing them, then you’re missing out on the big picture, and you’re setting yourself up for failure within CrossFit training. CrossFit isn’t just a fitness program to give you a cardio high, it’s a sport that involves many technical skills that takes a coach’s leadership to develop. You don’t have to understand it right now, but the reason you’re coming to HCF is because we are experts in CrossFit training and methodology.
HCF couldn’t have developed a great reputation and have become a successful small business f we didn’t take care of our members. During On Ramp, expert coaches adapt workouts to your specific abilities, promoting quality movement over intensity. Workouts will feel just challenging enough to want to come back for more.
