What is CrossFit?

We often hear from our existing members the first time we met them What is CrossFit and Is it for me?. .. ‘Do I need to lose weight first?’, ‘Will I survive?’. What is CrossFit? Is it circuit training? Well, let us explain exactly what CrossFit is…

CrossFit is defined as ‘The Sport of Fitness’. With take Functional Movements the Body was designed to do (Picking Keys up from the floor, sitting to a toilet), we vary the movements constantly, challenging the body in different ways and then we introduce an intensity that is right for you. As a training program CrossFit coaches people of all shapes and sizes to improve their physical well-being, lifestyle and cardiovascular fitness.

What now?

CrossFit is for everyone! We’ve created an environment that can fulfil all of your needs; whether that’s to lose weight and get Beach Body Ready, to be able to lift your kids and play with them without feeling pain or to simply find something more challenging, encouraging and performance focused, then we can help you!

Get Started – Fundamentals Course

Sign Up for our Fundamentals Course

Over a 2 week period, you will learn 5 of the 9 Fundamental Movements needed to safely and effectively perform CrossFit workouts in a group class format. Our Fundamentals class is designed to go over each movement in detail, with a huge emphasis on technical skill. This allows the Coaches to look at your movement and provide scaling options and mobility drills to help you develop a further understanding of the movement requirement. You’ll develop a deeper understanding as you enter into class as you’ll constantly be developing a deeper awareness of each movement and its then we will layer on intensity.

A Typical Fundamentals Class

15 mins – Warmup
30 mins – Movement Instruction
Up to 15 mins – WOD (Workout)
The class duration is usually an hour long, but depending on the workout and movements we will instruct it may go over an hour by 10-20 minutes.

What to Expect

Regardless of your current fitness ability, flexibility and understanding – expect to learn!  Expect to have a tough, but short work out that might give you a little reality check on your fitness level.  You’ll see lots of smiling faces and the Coaches will be with you every step of the way to encourage you.
