Q? You also do Yoga, how does that work?
A. We like to mix it up sometimes, so any member or person with a class package can attend yoga classes. They’re super fun for yogis of any level and we have a ton of fun doing it! If you think you can handle it, we also have a running class! Check it out!
Q? I really like Olympic Lifting, and I see you are USA Weightlifting club, what’s that about?
A. Yes, we are an official USA Weightlifting Club (Team Intrepid Gym), and we’re really psyched about it! We hold monthly competitions that you can compete in and are really fun. Ryan, our official Olympic Weightlifting Coach, teaches skill classes to help you work on Snatches and Clean and Jerks (C&J). Ask how you can join our team!
Q? How much is membership?
A. We have a few different membership options to choose from, the longer you commit, the better the deal. If you commit for a year you can either pay $105 every month, $290 per every 3 months, or yearly (the best). We also have options for a 6 month commitment along with a month-t0-month option. You can see all our pricing here.
Q? So what is high-intensity training, and why does it work?
A. This may help you understand more, check it out here!
Q? How does Intrepid Gym compare to a CrossFit gym, the workouts seem similar?
A. We are not an affiliate of CrossFit, nor do we have anything to do with CrossFit. We are an independently owned gym that specializes in group fitness high-intensity training utilizing functional movements and calisthenics for Metabolic Conditioning. So no, we are different than CrossFit, we like to think of ourselves as a unique breed since we’re one of the only high-intensity gyms in the country.
Q? What the hell is Skin the Cat?
A. Skin the Cat is a gymnastics move where you hang from either a bar or gymnastics rings, bring your feet up through the rings/bar, and controllably back down to the starting position.
Q? Your classes look really intense and scary, I feel like I am really out of shape, can I do it?
A. The hardest step is taking that first step inside our doors. We know it looks intimidating, but the coaches will make sure that you know all of the exercises (i.e. Skin the Cat, we keep the cats in the back – just kidding) in the “Workout of the Day” (we go over them as a class) and everything is scalable and easily modified to suit your skill level. For example, if you can’t do a Skin the Cat you can try sit-ups instead. We encourage people to really push themselves, think of this as more of a journey than a race. All of our members are at different skill levels and we love seeing you grow stronger with each class!
Q? Where are you located?
A. Our entrance is on Observer Highway, between Harrison Street and Jackson Street, you will see our big black double doors with Intrepid Gym painted in silver at the loading dock.
Q? I see Intrepid Gym offers a one-week free trial, can I come to any class?
A. Yes, you can come to any class you want. We think the only way to get a real feel for a gym is to try it out. You have one-week or 3 classes to try, whichever comes first.
