F.A.Q.

What is a WOD?

Workout Of the Day. This is our original CrossFit programming, drafted by Owner/Coach Ray Fleser. Our WODs incorporate all aspects of General Physical Preparedness; no stone of fitness will be left unturned with regular attendance at our WODs.

Will I be sore?

Because you will be learning new movements and new levels of intensity, you will be sore from your workout, that is perfectly normal! That is why it is so important to start slow, and learn proper mechanics and technique before increasing load and intensity. Movement quality is always more important than movement quantity or load.

What is Ocean State CrossFit?

Do I need to be a serious athlete to do CrossFit?

NOT AT ALL! Most people who come to OSCF are not currently working out, or have never exercised before.

Ocean State CrossFit Policies

Missed Class/Make-Up Policy

As a pre-paid drop-in, 3-Class Package, Limited Member, or any package other than Unlimited: Missed classes without 24 hour notification will not be refunded. However, if you ran late in traffic, or ran late for family or personal circumstances, you may make up the class, if another is offered on the same day, if you can make it. For example, you register and cannot attend the 12pm, you no-show, but are able to make the 3:30, you may do that at no additional cost, presuming the 3:30 is not at capacity.
All Unlimited members remain unaffected by missing class.
Note: as a common courtesy, we ask that missing class not become a habit. Many classes reach capacity, and if we see a trend of specific athletes register and no-show, we will address the situation personally.

Class credit is only given out with the approval of Aaron Meredith – and should expected only in extreme cases such as injury, family issues, or work-travel related that can’t be avoided.
