Karin and Connie bring up good points. The scaling for previously inactive people needs to be HUGE. As for not intimidating them with CROSSFIT(!) I agree. But they don't even need to know it's CrossFit. "Mom, Dad, we're going to do some basic functional movements mixed in such a way that we get your heart rate up a little."

I also think it would be good to start with 1 day on, 1 day off and increase the workloads slowly like everything else.
