Intro Program

The introductory program at Branford CrossFit is a required 6 or more classes for all of those new to CrossFit or that may need reviewing from a few moths or years off. These classes will cover the foundations (meat and potatoes), fundamentals, core values of our strength and conditioning program and community. 

Safety is our #1 priority here so we will never throw you into regular classes if you are not ready or we feel you are not ready. We are building something here and we need a great foundation. We are trying to hep you be more capable in every situation of your life, not just to get sweaty but to be more functional as a human.

Once you have completed the program which is run by the same coach every session; you will then begin classes. During this transition period your coach will routinely be in communication with you to help you succeed.

Team Sports Training or Team Programming

Time / Date- based off team
Price- varies off number of athletes and length of program

Branford CrossFit has been developing athlete programs for all sports since its inception and well before that. Through years of experience in sports and in training for sport we will lay down the blueprints for any level of athlete. Your team will have the unique ability to have their own time slot where only they can train inside BCF’s facility. They will be under the microscope of BCF’s certified coaches who were athletes themselves and understand what it takes. Our main focuses are working to improve fundamentals, increase power / speed, build camaraderie and leadership


Nation Barbell Club

This club will provide and addition to, or alternative to the CrossFit or Conditioning classes that are currently offered.

 The purpose of the club is to develop athletes through the incorporation of the Olympic lifts and structured resistance training. For those interested the club will serve as a platform to compete in the sport of weightlifting and a chance to compete locally, regionally, and nationally. No experience is necessary with the Olympic lifts and all ages are welcome.

 Typically sessions will last 60+ minutes consisting of a warm up, technical instruction on the Olympic lifts followed by targeted strength work to help you further develop your strengths and bring up your weaknesses. Individual assistance exercises will be prescribed to help fully develop athleticism and prevent injuries. A full plan will be written by Coach Chris Taber for all athletes to follow on a weekly basis.

Classes will start 3 times a week at our Branford CrossFit location Monday and Wednesdays 630PM and Saturday 930AM. The programmed work Mondays and Wednesday does not have to be done in that specifice 630 PM class or days. It can be done in the Nation Area (orange rig area) off to side throughout the week. But, in order to be able to do the Nation Barbell Program on your own you will need to be approved by Coach Tabor in class first.
