Getting Started

Quarter Deck Athletics, home of CrossFit QDA, is the only gym in downtown Buffalo, N.Y., offering fitness, chiropractic and nutrition services for all ages and abilities. If you’re new to CrossFit or just want to check out what QDA has to offer, here’s how to get started:

Step 1: Schedule a FREE introductory session.

We provide a free introductory session, which is designed to help you understand what we do, why we do it, answer any questions that you may have and provide your first exposure to CrossFit. You will gain instruction in some of the basic movements and experience examples of how we scale workouts for each individual. This session typically lasts 30 minutes depending on your experience and availability. Following the FREE introductory session, you will have the opportunity to set up three more introductory sessions with one of our experienced trainers.

Not totally ready for Step 2, yet? We understand. Get to know us a little better then let us know when you’re ready to take the next step!


Step 2: Schedule your one-on-ones with a trainer!

These are for all people new to CrossFit, regardless of one’s previous athletic background. The one-on-one sessions will provide you with the techniques and skills necessary for maintaining safety and maximizing your results when you enter the group classes. These sessions – typically lasting 30 minutes – will be scheduled with one of our trainers at a time that works best for both parties. The fee for each session is $70 (total of $210 for all three) and will be charged as you attend. Once completed, the remainder of your first month is on us! You can schedule your one-on-ones as quickly as you’d like so you have the flexibility to join the group classes. Once you determine what type of membership you would like to purchase, your account will be charged on your one-month anniversary.
