Re: Foundations Curriculum

This is something that I've wondered about as well. How do most affiliates introduce Crossfit to someone completely new to the exercise world? I could spend all day going over all the exercises, but that wouldn't really leave time for any working out.

I figured on starting with something like...

Introduction to the Crossfit idea for exercising
Introduction to simple but important movements such as squat and pull-up
Use these few movements in something like a low-intensity Cindy
Slowly introduce new, more complex movements with the proper progressions and gradually increase intensity.

I know that is just a template - I want to get an idea of what affiliates do for a first class.
