When we applied for our CrossFit Affiliation at the end of 2013, we needed to provide background as to why we chose our name, and the connection with the local area.
So why CrossFit Iron Duke? In 1815, soldiers disembarked in Portsmouth after returning from the Battle of Waterloo, and decided to stop at ‘The Heroes of Waterloo’ pub in Waterlooville to celebrate their victory. These British Forces were commanded by the Duke of Wellington, aka the ‘Iron Duke’.
‘Iron Duke’ has been used by the Royal Navy as a name for three naval ships since 1870, all of which have been based in Portsmouth – the home of the Royal Navy.
Our logo includes a bust silhouette of the Duke of Wellington, all designed within a kettlebell.
The name ‘Iron Duke’ is synonymous with local history, and we are proud to be called CrossFit Iron Duke.
