Aevitas Bridge Program - Going from ViTaFIT to CrossFit

Nuts & Bolts of the ViTaFIT Bridge Program

The Bridge program includes 3 mandatory sessions with a coach to cover the CrossFit Foundations curriculum. Generally these will be held during the evening directly before or after a ViTaFIT class

We will also host a weekend make-up session, if needed. This weekend session will generally be held directly after the Saturday or Sunday morning ViTaFIT class

Cost of the program is $199, which includes the 3 sessions along with a month in the Elite membership option (this means access to ALL of our programs - ViTaFIT, CrossFit, and all Specialty programs as well!)

The Beginning: ViTaFIT is a program for ALL!

At Aevitas, our bread-and-butter is CrossFit programming. This is the method of group training we built this gym on, and more than six years in we are still committed to the constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity that CrossFit training is all about.

However, we recognize that CrossFit itself can be a bit intimidating to start, especially for people who have little or no fitness/sport background, or who have been away from the fitness scene for months or years and are trying to find their way back. With that in mind, we created a more fundamental introductory program for people to get their feet wet in the world of functional fitness, without diving straight into the “deep end” of CrossFit (though we promise, we won’t ever let you drown!) This program we lovingly call “ViTaFIT”, and it combines all of the fun, functional, and intense aspects of the training we know and love, while leaving out a few of the higher-skill, higher-risk movements.

If you’re a new athlete starting at Aevitas, your first workouts with us will be in a ViTaFIT class. ViTaFIT is a program that can be implemented in 45 minutes (compared to the traditional hour-long CrossFit class), and is action-packed with many exciting (and functional!) movements. The workouts, like CrossFit, are universally scale-able to any fitness level and background. The movements are somewhat simple in nature and involve bodyweight, dumbells, kettlebells, torpedos, resistance bands, boxes, cardio machines, gymnastics rings, and the pull-up bars. Like CrossFit, every day is different and exciting, so you will never get bored. Also like CrossFit, the intent is to add (or subtract) intensity to match your own capability and goals. And finally, just like our CrossFit program, there is a coach with you every step of the way, ensuring you are performing the movements with correct technique and intensity so that you get the most out of every single workout.

ViTaFIT classes are simple, but definitely cannot be described as easy. Just ask any of our ViTaFIT or CrossFit athletes who have been through a grueling 45-minute ViTaFIT session!

Our intent with the ViTaFIT program is to create a workout regimen that you can follow indefinitely, just like CrossFit. Since the movements (and repetitions) can be scaled up or down to meet your needs, you’ll never have a workout that’s not specifically programmed for you. However, at some point, you may want to take your increased work capacity gained through the ViTaFIT program and try your hand at our bread-and-butter CrossFit program. If that is you, keep reading to learn how to make the leap!



Transitioning from ViTaFIT to CrossFit

First of all, the question that we get a lot: Does everyone have to transition from ViTaFIT to CrossFit? And the answer is absolutely NOT. The ViTaFIT program is created to be a stand-alone regimen, and the intensity can be scaled to allow even the most seasoned athletes to gain a higher level of fitness. However, in some cases athletes decide that they want to try out the “deep end” of our CrossFit program - and that’s great too!

If you are in our ViTaFIT program and are thinking about giving CrossFit a try, let a coach know! There is some work that needs to be done to close the gap between the ViTaFIT movements and CrossFit movements, which is where our “Bridge” program comes in. But before we get to the mechanics of the Bridge Program, let’s first look at what your reasons/thoughts might be that lead you to wanting to give CrossFit a try.

How to know if you’re ready to transition

Use the questions below to discover if you’re “ready” for CrossFit (hint: CrossFit is infinitely scale-able as well, so everyone is “ready”), and if the Bridge program is right for you

Steps to take

If you’ve determined through the questions above that you are in fact ready for the next step towards CrossFit, let’s get you started on that path!
