Give yourself a big pat on the back – you’re taking the first step toward a happier, healthier and more confident you! Even if you’ve never set foot in a gym before, you’re going to feel right at home at Fathom CrossFit. In fact, over 80% of our current members started right here as CrossFit newbies! We hope you’ll be next!
TRY FATHOM FOR FREE!
We know switching gyms can be rough, so to make your transition smooth sailing we’d love for you to come check us out for a week: for FREE! This way you can see our amazing training facility, meet your new coaches and fellow athletes, and experience the higher quality training at Fathom.
I'm new to CrossFit. What should I expect?
When you first come to Fathom, you’ll start out with a FREE intro session where you come in for a gym tour, meet our coaches, and discuss your goals. Then, we’ll add you to our Onboarding program, where you’ll learn proper technique and get familiar with using the equipment in three private sessions with 1-on-1 attention.
Is CrossFit dangerous?
Every CrossFit gym is independently owned and operated, and so there may be some not so good gyms out there with inexperienced coaches, shoddy equipment, and lackluster care. But, CrossFit in general is less dangerous than most all sports–even uncoached jogging! The experienced and proven Fathom Coaches will ensure that you’re training the safest way possible. To ensure your safety we start every new athlete with a 1-hour Intro Session and continue that 1-on-1 care for beginners with a three session Foundations Course that focuses specifically on proper movement mechanics and gym safety. No other training regime or gym can match our level of safety dedication and training.
What's a WOD?
A “WOD” stands for the “workout of the day”. It’s your training plan for that day. There will be some new CrossFit and general training lingo to learn, but that’s why you have a dedicated coach to guide you along 🙂
Do you offer personal training?
Yes! Our coaches would love to work with you 1-on-1 so you can use the workout time you have to its best advantage. Contact a Fathom staff member to schedule your first session!
Do I have to eat Paleo, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, anything that tastes good free?
Nope. It’s your health, so eat what you want…buuuuuut, we do advise that you eat a diet (everyday nutrition, not fad) that promotes muscle growth, fat loss, and limits your exposure to processed, genetically modified, or engineered food. If you want more advice on nutrition and meal preparation, please visit our blog and contact us to set up nutrition coaching sessions.
I have an injury, can I still train at Fathom?
Ummm, have you met our owner Alec? The guy is legitimately disabled and he’s a workout ninja. So yes, you can do CrossFit with just about any limiting factor since all of our workouts can be scaled down (i.e. less reps, less weight) and modified (i.e. pull-ups with band assistance) to meet your fitness level or injury.
In fact, Fathom takes pride in training wounded warriors. Alec and the Fathom Team developed the CrossFit Specialty Seminar: Adaptive Training, and travel around the world teaching others how to train adaptive athletes.
Fathom is a training HQ for WWP alumni, Challenge Athletes Foundation, Team RWB, and the Naval Hospital Wounded Warrior Battalion. If it can happen to the human body, chances are we’ve seen it and we know how to work with your injury and keep you training safely. Please send us a message to discuss your injury/limitations and we’ll develop a training plan to get you healthy!
Do you allow kids at the gym?
Yes for sure! We have a ton of members with kids in our gym community. We understand that you may need to bring your kids to class and if so, we simply ask that the little monkeys keep off the equipment and stay in the designated kid safe area. Otherwise, all unattended children will be given pixie sticks, a Red Bull, and a cowbell for your ride home (enjoy!).

Spaces Are Limited! We cap our total membership so we can maintain the highest level of quality 🙂
