Getting Started

Here at 431 it’s easy to get started!

We do NOT offer an On Ramp Program which means you are able to jump into class anytime you’d like!  And if that doesn’t work for you, we are now offering a FREE “Learn To CrossFit” class every Tuesday night at 7pm which is absolutely perfect for any beginner athlete that has always been looking to start CrossFit but doesn’t know how or where to do it.  Our regular CrossFit program here at CF431 is designed not only for all fitness and skill levels, but is also tailored for the newer CrossFitter as well.  The first class is free, so be sure to come check us out at 729 Wall Street to get started!

Private sessions can be booked through any of our coaches if you feel the need to brush up on your CrossFit Fundamentals, and/or some of the more advanced skills.  We would love to help you get better at this wonderful and addicting sport!!!
