What is CrossFit

THE KEY TO HEALTH & FITNESS
CrossFit is a lifestyle characterised by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone – people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.

THE WORKOUTS
The magic is in the movements. Workouts are different every day and modified to help each athlete achieve his or her goals. CrossFit workouts can be adapted for people at any age and level of fitness.

THE LIFESTYLE
Reducing starchy carbs, eating more good carbs and getting off the couch. The CrossFit lifestyle – a combination of diet and exercise – is the key to fitness and long-term health.

THE COMMUNITY
The support networks. At more than 15,000 affiliates around the world, people encourage and motivate each other in every class as they work toward their goals. Start training with friends.

WHY IS A CROSSFIT BOX DIFFERENT FROM A ‘NORMAL’ GYM?

  • CrossFit is about variance and adaptation. We “program” our workouts for General Physical Preparedness, or GPP. We don’t have leg days, back- and bi- days, or cardio days. We believe the body is a whole system, and strengthen it as a whole.
  • It is fully inclusive as it covers all age ranges from children to the elderly.
  • Classes are limited in size, so all members receive more individual and dedicated coaching.
  • There are always dedicated trainers for each class, and these are available during open gym sessions.
  • Our coaches will also give you assistance and guidance in diet and nutrition. We believe that nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness and know that how we feed our bodies determines how quickly we achieve the results we want.
  • The community is like no other, everyone knows everyone’s name.
  • Everyone does the same program, it is just scaled to your individual ability.
  • The best part is that you’re joined by like-minded people who want to be and feel better.

Why CrossFit Works

CONSTANT VARIATION

Different every day, CrossFit workouts are tailored to the individual.

FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS

CrossFit uses safe, effective and efficient movements similar to those used for everyday life.

HIGH INTENSITY

In CrossFit workouts, intensity levels are adjusted to challenge the individual and safely improve fitness.

FITNESS IN 100 WORDS

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.

Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast.

Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow.

Routine is the enemy.

Keep workouts short and intense!

Regularly learn and play new sports.
