I hope calling me names makes you feel better. So if you looked it up you should have all the info you need & if you have questions they are also on Facebook & they have a phone number you can call. I actually workout there. Seems like you want someone to do the work for you which makes you seem like the lazy one.

There are other CrossFit gyms in BG. CFOS is not the only one. You can do personal training at BAC ( http://www.bgathleticclub.com/services#Person... ), they do a type of Constantly Varied, High Intensity, Interval Training (aka... CrossFit, but you have to physically go there and ask for it). I think Vette City CrossFit ( VetteCityCrossFit.com ) is now open. I'm going to check them out. I here all of their trainers are Fire Fighters and are super nice guys.(my buddies a Fire Fighter and knows them.) I don't know very much about CFOS. Can't speak for the trainers. Only thing I've heard is that they are super over crowded and there's not a lot of supervision. As for the BAC i've seen people get good results from the guy that does the training. I think it's expensive though Not sure on the cost though. Vette City CrossFit prices look reasonable though comparing to other CrossFit gyms; they range from $120 -$90 per month depending on how many months you buy. It's all on their website. CFOS doesn't post their cost.

I can officially say that I've visited both. I just moved here a few months ago and have been to multiple other CrossFit gyms and I have to go with Vette City as being one of the better gyms that I've been to. I went to CFOS and it was super over crowded. I overheard one guy saying that he was tired of waiting and he left, apparently it's not an unusual thing there. People had bad form all over place. There were too many people for the one coach to watch (seriously it was like 40 people trying to do a workout as once!) and people were running all over each other and getting in each others way. I actually couldn't figure out who the coach was until I asked someone. All she, the coach, was doing was writing down people times and not paying any attention to the clients. I have to say that the atmosphere was pretty intense though, and people were really welcoming as far as the clients went, but I want a coach that will pay attention to me. They said they had a protocol class of 16-18 sessions, but it looked like most of the people needed to do it again and since there apparently wasn't much reinforcement of the movements during the workout I would appear it's probably useless and I could see a lot of people potentially getting hurt.
Now, as far as Vette City CrossFit goes... When I went over there. I was immediately greeted by one of the coaches, he was an older guy who was super nice. The first thing he asked me was my name and then what my goals were. The class was small, about 10 people. The coach told me that they limit the class size to 15-20 people and have 10:1 client to coach ratio, this surprised me because Vette City had more equipment and a better setup than CFOS. The group was going over the techniques needed for the strength portion of the workout. The coach told me that they went over technique progressions everyday. And they always had a strength or skill work and Met Con every day. This was what I was use to in a CrossFit gym. The coach also told me that the protocol class was free (vs CFOS which one client at CFOS told me was $150.) Vette City's was just an hour and a half because as the coach told me "You don't get to be a professional in a month. It takes 10,000 hours to do that and you can't fit that in a month." So, needless to say I chose Vette City CrossFit. Thus Far I've been there for about a week and it's been amazing! Classes have been small I get the attention I need and they really do care about technique and form vs. just getting me in the door to take my money. I've talked to the owner, Joseph, several times. He's always willing to answer my questions and he's not afraid to admit it when he doesn't know, but he'll go try to find out the answer for you. I have not been disappointed and I haven't second guessed my choice. This is the best CrossFit gym in town. You need to try it! You won't be disappointed.
well

It won't stay in business long in BG. WAAAAAY too many fatties, nowhere near enough people that actually want to live past 45 and take care of themselves.

Cross Fit Old School is my favorite. I haven't been to the other one because its twice the cost of this one. I love old school. They are very helpful and the 12 day protocol taught me what I needed as far as form and techniques. There are a lot of trainers and each is helpful and knowledgeable. Very seldom do they have to look up any information about what they are doing. They are all extremely fit so its seems to me, they know what they are doing. They are crowded during protocol and newbie nights- I think that's a good sign. If you're not crowded wouldn't that tell you something? It's like a good restaurant. If its crowded- it's because it's good. They have talked about expanding their space to allow more room. It is growing quickly. As a member, I know why. The staff is excellent- they live it and can teach it- there's always someone around to help. I never have to wait too long. The waiting time is your stretch and buy-in so you're ready for the WOD. Choose wisely everyone but I'm sure either way you have a good place to start or maintain your fitness!

The 12 day protocol at Old School is a joke and costs more than a month at Vette City. How can you learn everything you need to know about form and technique in 12 days? Maybe that is why the cost is what it is. I think there is a saying for this: "You get what you pay for." I'm sure the trainers do their best, but how can they pay attention to the members if it is overcrowded?

The restaurant analogy: It's more like going to a restaurant where you only have a total of 4 tables so you have to wait 20 minutes just to get seated, then the waiter ignores you the entire time. The restaurant will go out of business, it's just a matter of time.

I want to workout at a place where there is plenty of space, quality equipment, certified coaches, and efficient programming (not just a mainsite workout). If you look at other CrossFit affiliates, they almost always have a strength portion in every class. Old School is just that, "old school", following the mainsite since they first opened and located in the same small space they started in. Doesn't seem like they are growing any to me.

Matts right on the dot. If you can learn everything you need to know in 12 days about every movement that is performed in CrossFit that's amazing! It's too bad you can't do that. It takes a long time. It's like saying you can learn to be a professional race car driver in 12 days. Seriously? 12 days? You would wreck. It takes years of practice. I'll be honest, I used to go to Old School, but after waiting around forever to workout, using old equipment and lack there of, spending little time on strength, I decided to try out Vette City. I am so glad I did! Several people have gotten hurt at Old School from poor form and little one-on-one coaching. It's not the coaches fault though. They just don't have the ability to work with people when its packed. I think Vette City told me they limit their class sizes to 15 people, so they can focus on everyone.

Maybe you're twisting my words. Did I say I learned everything I needed to know in 12 days? I think I said I learned what I needed as far as form and technique. Of course it's a given that you build on that and improve it with every workout. Matt and The Dude- they are crowded but there's hardly a wait time. I already mentioned that though. I'm realizing that you both aren't the best of readers. Maybe you should use your $120.00 crossfit fee and take some reading classes-Specifically passage comprehension. And while you're at it, you may as well join the debate team for practice-It's difficult to argue opinions. As far as old school- yeah, I believe it is just that. It's old school. Nothing fancy. You do get what you pay for. You like nice fancy new stuff but that's not going to get you fit. It's part of an illusion. It's like living with your parents but driving a Mercedes. Does that make sense? The old school equipment is safe and fairly new. The space is smaller and it doesn't really shine but that's worth $60.00 a month for me. My workouts are awesome and I have the space I need. Anything more is a waste. But then again, I'm frugal. I can use that extra money saved to add 2 more members of my family.$30.00 for each teen.
Like I said, I'm sure your place is great and the trainers are encouraging as well, but what I'm saying is I lack nothing in my time at old school. I think it's an ideal place to work out and the cost is reasonable.$60.00 is a lot in my opinion but its worth the money. I have to assume, yes, assume since I haven't been to the other, that both provide the same one on one experiences and a great family atmosphere. The difference is in what you need for your workout- fancy or practical. I'm just practical. Oh yeah, and money conscience. So fancy workout? Or practical? See how that works? Look at the outcomes to help you decide.
