New YMCA & CrossFit?

does anyone know if they offer cross-fit classes, or who to talk to about getting it offered there? To pay the membership some of the 'boxes' in Brandon are charging I'd much rather pay 1/3 at the Y and possibly do some other activities throughout the month. YMCA staff, can you help me out to get it offered in the new facility?

I'm interested in spin and kickboxing. Does anybody know if the Y will offer them? Or anywhere in Brandon?

They do not and will not offer cross fit. Or kickboxing. But they have spin.

I'll check on Monday

with it being only a 2 day training course to be certified to train, I don't understand why they wouldn't offer when they have a brand-new facility, even at a beginner level. Does anyone know program-directors down there or who is in charge to ask. Seems like they are missing a void, and be a shame to see the new building/rooms underused.

From what I was told a couple of months ago by one of the class instructors, it costs too much to have crossfit. It is a brand name that has to be paid for to use. But they did try out a crossfit style of class in the spring that it sounds like they were going to try to offer at the new facility. They do have a muscle kick class that teaches you the kickboxing basics

Crossfit is a trademarked company

Crossfit is a registered trademark brand. Anyone offering classes under the Crossfit label must be certified and also pay a licensing fee to offer such programs under the Crossfit name (I think it's around $5,000). So, it is not just a matter of taking a 2 day training course. You also have to pay the licensing fee. As the YMCA operates primarily with volunteer fitness trainers, they would not be in a position to offer "crossfit" training. Crossfit is not the end all and be all. The Y has lots of great classes that allow a person to develop core strength and flexibility.

I have done crossfit for 6 months and love it. Family issues have made the 150$ gym membership just not feasable for the next few months.. Does anyone associated with the new YMCA know if they will have all the equpiment a crossfitter would use? (so i can do my own WOD's) ie few pullup bars, rings, Rubber plates?? and an OLY lifting area??
