What is CrossFit

CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit's Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health. CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. read more...

Attend our Fundamentals Course

dsc_6166Our Fundamentals Course is here to equip you with a basic know how to performing CrossFit movements and to give you an understanding of how a CrossFit class is structured. A specialized coach will guide you through the program with a level of Intensity which is specific to you. Our Fundamentals Course consists of two, one hour sessions, which are held every Monday and Wednesday from 18:00 to 19:00. On completion of your Fundamentals Course you will be ready and confident enough to jump into the regular CrossFit group classes. The Fundamentals Course will also give our coaches the required knowledge of you as an athlete to provide specific intensity and scaling to you when joining the group classes.


Jump into Group Training

dsc_6019Now that you have completed the Fundamentals Course, you will have the confidence, knowledge, strength, and endurance to take your training to the next level. It is in the group classes that you can really turn up the intensity on your training. It is the intensity and competition of the workouts that make them so appealing to everyone, and the way we achieve greatness. Remember that we are all here to motivate you and watch you succeed, not just your trainers, but also the other members. Feel free to encourage everyone in the gym to push a little harder and give a little more.
