FAQs

Are your trainers certified instructors?

All of our trainers are, at minimum, CrossFit Level 1 Trainers (CF-L1 Trainer) or certified group fitness instructors. For more information on each trainer please check out our trainer bios.

I'm nervous to try something new. What if I can't keep up?

You have to start where you are at! The beauty of CrossFit programming is that it is universally scalable. That means you will be able to get a workout that challenges YOU. The CrossFit community does not care where you finish just as long as you do it!

Do I need to know all of the movements before I start?

NO! All of the coaches will be able to help you with the movements.

One option is to do some personal training before jumping in a class. Lake Region Healthcare has a program called Lifestyle Medicine and if your LRH doctor refers you to the program, you can get two free half-hour personal training sessions, one free wellness coach visit, and a ten session package for 25% off!

What should I wear? Do I need any specific workout gear?

We always want you to be comfortable, thus wear whatever you feel best in and can move in. If that's spandex and a tank top, great. If it's baggy sweats and a loose T-shirt, great! A clean pair of tennis shoes will top it off.

How do I register/sign up for fitness classes?

LRH Wellness has an app for iTunes and Android. Drop-ins and the 10-punch card can be purchased through the app. Unlimited passes must be purchased through the coaches. All punch card and unlimited passes can be managed through the app. Check the class schedule and sign up for the class you want to attend!

A desktop/laptop version of the app can be found here.

*If you have already participated in any LRH Wellness services please contact your coach or trainer for your username and password.*

Do you have locker rooms and showers?

We do! The men's and women's locker rooms each have one shower. Towels are provided. Check out photos of our facilities!

Do you take insurance?

Insurance will not pay for your training with us. However, we do offer a discount on your monthly training fees if you carry a specific insurance provider and work out 12 times each month. The list of these insurance providers include:

Active 'n Fit

Blue Cross, Blue Shield of MN

Blue Cross, Blue Shield of ND

Preferred One

UCare

Silver 'n Fit

We are not able to honor Silver Sneakers.

Do I need to see a doctor before I start?

If you have any concerns that could be exacerbated by exercise it is suggested you visit with your doctor before you start.

What is SugarWOD?

SugarWOD is the WOD recording app the members use to keep track of their workouts. Measurable, observable, and repeatable, WODs are helpful to gauge your fitness level and improvements. Keeping track of your data also allows you to determine what weights to use.

SugarWOD is also a sort of social media for the gym. You can give each other fist bumps and comment on others workouts. If you do not want to have your workouts for everyone to see, you can keep them private.

SugarWOD is easy to use. You can search workouts without flipping through a notebook and your PR lifts are listed for you to see. If you do your own workout, like running a 5k race, you can make your own workout and enter your results.

To sign-up for SugarWOD follow the correct link and email wellness@lrhc.org for the CrossFit Fergus Falls password.

What are you doing to manage COVID-19?

Class sizes are limited to 7 people per WOD and 5 people per Barbell. All athletes are required to wear a mask into the building, have their temperature taken, and get their equipment to their space before they take their mask off. Equipment sharing is not allowed. Following the WOD all athletes will be given a sanitizing wipe to wipe down their equipment and are encouraged to mask up to put their equipment away. Masks are required in the hallways and bathrooms but not in the gym while working out. Athletes are asked to bring their own water bottles as water fountains are not available.

What if I have trouble with my knees, hips, shoulder, etc.?

We will teach you modifications to use throughout the class so that you are able to keep moving along with us, just in your own way. It's all about you and what you can do.

Where are you located?
