Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between a Medical Fitness Facility and a regular gym?


There are many differences and we will outline a few for you.  This facility is overseen by a Board of Directors in the medical field.  Each athlete who comes here will have a baseline sports physical.  Any pertinent information that is brought about by your physical will be conveyed to your health coaches along with an exercise prescription following the American College of Sports Medicine Guidelines.  Your health coaches coach you in person to make sure you are fulfilling that prescription, utilizing proper form, and pushing yourself to where you need to go.  You are also in an immediate network of healthcare professionals where you can book appointments for medicine, chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, acupuncture and counseling.  By utilizing all of these disciplines we see to help our patients/athletes in their physical, mental, emotional, psychological and physiological health and allow them to be better than yesterday.

Can I just sign up for a membership or personal coaching and not go through the physical?


No.  The physical allows the medical staff to learn about you, your history, and your movement tendencies and communicate your exercise prescription to your coaching staff so that they help you work towards your goals and not away from them.  Learn more about what to expect during your physical here.

What is CrossFit?

"Constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity across broad time and modal domains," put simply, CrossFit is an athlete's approach to training for everyday life.  No gimmicks, no fads, no trends, just hard work and good training. We stick to movements (squats, running, pullups, etc) that have always worked.  We mix them up and vary them because that's how life works: things come at you in strange mixes of cardio and strength. Each class has a coach to teach the agenda for everyone and once you mix that with encouraging teammates you have the best hour of your day at the best gym in Moorhead.  Welcome to your new Happy Hour!

How Much Does a Membership cost?

The cost is going to vary on which program best suits your needs and your goals.  When you meet with the clinical director and head coach during your prospective athlete meeting they will review this information with you based on which program they recommend.  Costs of our programs vary based on monthly membership rates and sessions ($20-200 depending on the program).  Your initial prospective athlete meeting costs $120.  If you choose to register for a program at EHP $80 of your initial meeting will go towards that program.

Why is EHP Performance more expensive than my globo gym membership?

It's not cheap, but it's not expensive.  Expensive implies it's overpriced. A gym membership that you pay for and never use is expensive.  Our memberships are not cheap, but that's because what we do works. 

What we do is time and labor intensive.  We treat every EHP-er like an athlete, not a hamster.  We don't just stick you on a treadmill or watch you spin away like other gyms.  Traditional gyms are cheap because only 11% of people show up. 89% never show up and end up subsidizing the ones that do.


Do you take  drop ins?

Usually yes, our drop in fee is $20 and you can sign up here before hand, otherwise you can purchase at least $20 in merchandise in our EHP Store. Coming for a week? Pay a one time fee of $50 for the week and come as many times as you want!  Due to the world Pandemic we may not allow drop-ins from time to time.





Is CrossFit or Elevate dangerous, I have heard that a lot of people get hurt?

CrossFit nor Elevate is not dangerous, however bad coaching is and bad movement is.  At EHP our coaching staff takes pride in making sure we understand you and your goals.  This is why we have our 1-on-1 prospective athlete meeting before you start.  We also include 90 Day athlete meetings with you to make sure you are on track for your goals.


Do I need to get in shape before I start at EHP?

NO! Our programming is scalable to anyone's level and we will take your exercise prescription into consideration when you start.  We offer online Individual Coaching, Personal Coaching, CrossFit, and 8- Week Bootcamp Challenges and Elevate so we can help you decide what is best for you


How do I get health care reimbursement for attending classes?

Depending on your health care insurance, the chances are you can!  

What do I need to do to use my HSA or FLEX money?

Training room visits are used for current athletes to book (15 minutes) for a clinician to discuss and examine any new injuries or ailments that might come up.  They will make recommendations as far as what you should do for treatment.  It is up to you to decide if you want to follow through with the treatment plan or not.  We use this information to educate our coaching staff on how to best help you through your injury and to ensure you can stay active and healthy while not making your injury or issue worse.

I genuinely want to start working out, but I tend to not follow through?

Another Great Question!


In our experience people do not follow through for at least 1 of 3 reasons:

~They don’t have a plan.  They can make up exercise routines for themselves for a little while but eventually they stall out and get bored

~They don’t have a dedicated health coach. This takes a lot of work and expertise.  If you try figuring it out on your own you will make mistakes. At EHP our coaches have spent many hours perfecting their skills to help you.

~ They don’t have a team. Humans are social creatures.  We crave community, we crave a tribe. EHP is a community of people who want you to be the best version of yourself.


This is why we have structured everything we do taking these 3 roadblocks into consideration.  From our 90 day athlete meetings to check in on your goals, to that little nudge you need to get back on track when you have missed a week, we are here to support you.  When you combine them all you stay motivated and not drop out!


I am in HORRIBLE shape, can I start at EHP Performance without embarrassing myself?

Here is the thing about Elevate, CrossFit, or starting anything you have never done before, you are going to get humbled more than once. For most people, the feeling of being humbled gets confused with being embarrassed.  The very nature in how we train is to find what your weaknesses are and work them.  So the answer is yes, you  may feel  “embarrassed” or "humbled" while you are learning, but this is a process of becoming comfortable and confident in your skills.  Our question for you might be, "How will you handle it?"

I see the CrossFit Games on TV.  Is That what you expect me to do?

Nope, that is like playing touch football for fun one weekend and your coaching expecting you to get drafted straight to the NFL.  

The CrossFit Games is like the super bowl is to football or the World Series is to baseball.  It is the best of the best. Although it is a dream goal of many, most of us are looking to find the best versions of ourselves.  Some of the movements that you see at the CrossFit games we will also do in class, however we do not expect you to walk up to a barbell and perform a snatch flawlessly or beautifuly kip your pull ups.  Everything you see is modifiable and scalable.
