CrossFit 757 A Norfolk Original

CrossFit 757 is located in the Ghent area of Norfolk, Virginia. We were the first operating CrossFit affiliate gym in Norfolk, Virginia. After over three  years, we remain the only CrossFit in Ghent. We are dedicated solely to CrossFit and the advancement of our athletes through the CrossFit methodology. While assisting all of our athletes in achieving their personal goals, we also seek to build a strong family within the gym and contribute to the community of other CrossFit facilities in the area. All fitness levels are welcome with open arms and open minds to participate in our CrossFit workouts and training.

Our History

CrossFit 757 was first conceived by two friends who had the mutual dream of owning their own CrossFit facility which would exemplify both fitness and community. The dream has been realized because a select group shared our passionate dedication to CrossFit, and more importantly, a dedication to helping others. CrossFit has changed thousands of lives for the better by forging elite athletes through its training methods. Our stories are not unlike those who came before us. CrossFit has changed our lives for the better and will positively change yours as well.

Our Mission…

…is to safely pass on the proven training techniques to as many people as we can, so that you too can realize your personal fitness goals. While on this path to your goals, you will realize that we are all here to help you. Whether it is to become a better athlete or just to become a more functional person, the trainers at CF 757 will be there to assist. Sometimes it will be to help you by correcting your form, which will make your movements more efficient. Other times it will be that little yell of encouragement to help you push through and finish the workout. However our encouragement comes out, you will know that we are here for you and want you to succeed just as much as you do. In essence, we are here to make you…

…Harder to Kill

“Stronger people are harder to kill than weak people, and more useful in general.”

—Mark Rippetoe

CrossFitYour Questions Answered

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program designed to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible. It is not a specialized fitness program, but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in all ten areas of fitness:

  • Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Coordination
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Accuracy

Is CrossFit for me?

In a word: yes. CrossFit is for anyone. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. This kind of fitness compliments a wide range of physical activities including sport, combat, survival,  and simply negotiating life here on Earth. Our specialty is not specializing. We punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We work with each of our members to scale weight and intensity appropriate to their individual abilities.

What is World Class Fitness?

Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, sums it up in 100 words: “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean & jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”

Let's Get Started

There are several ways to get started at CrossFit 757 based on your level of CrossFit experience. You will likely fall into one of these three categories:
+ Experienced CrossFitter
  • You have been exposed to CrossFit and the nine fundamental movements and feel you can demonstrate successfully any of them when asked to do so.
  • You typically have a couple of months experience in a CrossFit Affiliate.

You are welcome to come and join classes at your discretion and would only pay the drop in fee or the appropriate monthly fee.

Come in at any of our scheduled class times and stop by the front desk to fill out a waiver and set up your membership/pay your drop-in fee.

 

+ Novice CrossFitter
  • You have some CrossFit experience.
  • You feel like you know the nine fundamental movements but are unsure as to the proper form and technique.

You are welcome to take our one-hour Refresher Course. This course is $50. You will be required to perform the 9 movements in the hour time frame or will need to continue with the other two hours of fundamentals at an extra cost of $100.

Please contact us to schedule your Refresher Course.

 

+ New to CrossFit
  • You will be required to take our Fundamentals course.

 

At CrossFit 757, we want to make sure you get the safest, most effective workout, and that you also feel like part of the our family before you attend your first group class. Our fundamentals course consists of one private two hour session or three small-group sessions and is designed to give you a solid foundation on which to build your CrossFit experience.

 

We offer a FREE class every Saturday morning.

Come in and try out CrossFit with no obligation to join. Email us today to let us know when you’ll be coming in.

The Fundamentals Course

We are dedicated to assisting you in becoming the best CrossFitter you can be. To ensure we get you off to the right start, we need to teach you the proper form, cues and techniques we use in CrossFit.

Group Fundamentals is a small group class consisting of entirely of athletes new to CrossFit. This class is held from 6-7:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Athletes must attend one of each session because they each cover different material. If your schedule requires it, this can be broken up over more than one week. In each class you will become familiar with the following:

Monday

Squat Series
+
push-ups
burpees
wall-balls
box jumps

Wednesday

Press Series
+
rope climbs
handstand push-ups
the kettlebell

Friday

Deadlift Series
+
pull-ups
ring dips
the glute-ham developer (GHD)

We do offer an Individual Fundamentals course if you cannot fit the group class into your schedule.

If you are ready to start your Fundamentals Course, please contact us.
