Membership at Prism Moves
Membership with Prism Moves grants you access to dedicated group class times, open gym, seminars, community events, personal training sessions and nutrition consultations.
First and foremost, Prism Moves members are supportive of their peers. They are inclusive, respectful and work hard.
Please acknowledge your fellow members by:
- Signing up for class no later than 30 minutes prior to class start time.
Note: Classes with only 1 participant signed up 30 minutes before class will be cancelled. We hold classes with 2 or more participants.
- Canceling your reservation no later than an hour before class starts.
- Arriving to class on time, though we understand that traffic and events happen.
- Not talking about weight. Some members may have goals to lose weight and that is a wonderful goal for them. Not everyone has the same goal or relationship with their weight, including recovery from eating disorders, so please keep talk about weight out of class. If you would like to talk about weight, do it one on one with you and your coach/nutritionist.
- Respecting pronouns. Please be aware that there may be members of Prism Fit that go by They/Them instead of He/Him or She/Her. If you are unsure, assume They/Them until told otherwise, or just politely ask.
- Understanding that our gym does not work within the typical CrossFit guidelines of Rx/Scaled, Men/Women’s weights.
- Using the term “adaptive athlete” instead of handicapped or handicap-able. Let’s learn together to say “able-bodied athletes” instead of “normal athletes”. Our adaptive athletes are normal people, they just have different challenges to face.
- You do not have to be BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ to join Prism, but we ask that you respect the humans Prism was made to accommodate.
- We love dogs at Prism, but please leave your furbaby at home. Rocket, Bandido and Roy (who likes to be admired from afar) are the resident gym pups.

No we are not affiliated with CrossFit. We use similar protocols for our workouts but we are not stereotypically CrossFit. We reject the “bro-ish” culture that can sometimes be associated with CrossFit and have removed the gender aspect to the best of our ability. We make adjustments to movements so that they better fit everyone that joins us at Prism Moves.
Yes. We attempt to support women and parents in every way possible and understand this may involve parents bringing their children. We ask that parents please keep an eye on their children, and if their child’s safety or the safety of other clients is jeopardized, we will need to ask you to briefly exit from the workout and attend to your child. Safety and proper coaching is our first priority. Ensuring that everyone receives a good, sweaty workout is close behind.
We want all bodies to be able to attend all of our classes and create a diverse clientele and community. That being said, we recognize that the fitness industry has been predominantly white. Getting involved in Prism Moves and starting a fitness journey may be more comfortable if people get a chance to see others that look like them in our community.
Due to space and safety only coach Asher’s dog is allowed in the gym.
Yes, cis men, trans men, all men are welcome. We currently have very supportive cis and trans male clients and that is our main ask: that men of all kinds please be supportive and respectful of everyone around them at Prism Moves.
