What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at 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. Above all though, it’s loads of fun.
The community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together is a key component of why CrossFit is so effective. Harnessing the natural camaraderie and fun of CrossFit yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means. As much as we might want to avoid it, it’s intensity that makes gains possible. Don’t worry, though – what intensity will look like for you is different than what it will look like for someone else. We start everyone at an appropriate level suited to them and then you progress from there.
One of the fun things about CrossFit is that it’s constantly changing. Overall, the aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results. The program prepares trainees for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown but for the unknowable, too. Our specialty is not specializing. You’ll never do the same workout twice in a row, so you can kiss ‘monotony’ good-bye. We keep your body guessing, and keep you adapting.
While CrossFit challenges the world’s fittest, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.Every workout you take part in will simulate the kinds of movements that everyday life requires. We carry out exercises that are natural, such as squat, lift, throw, pull, push. Back to basics and very effective.
In our CrossFit classes you will work in small, friendly groups where you will benefit from personal training. Every day there will be a different workout with different challenges to experience and learn from.
It’s for everyone: no matter what your ability or experience, it’s all scalable.
It is community driven: you will make friends, encourage each other and become our community.
Workouts are short: always within an hour to suit your busy lifestyle.
You will be coached: from start to finish we commit ourselves to you and every one of the athletes around you.
Whatever your goal is, to be better at your sport, to simply maintain your independence, or anywhere in between, our CrossFit classes will work for you.
