CrossFit classes revolve around functional movements, which are constantly varied and performed at high intensity. Classes are scalable to all levels of fitness/ability and are delivered by qualified coaches who are there to facilitate good movement patterns and to aid in improving your overall health and fitness
Workouts are different every single day and include a combination ofweightlifting (e.g. dumbbells, barbells kettlebells, medicine balls etc),gymnastics (e.g. squats, press ups, sit ups, pull ups, box jumps, rope climbs etc) and conditioning (e.g. running, rowing) rotated in a sequence known only to the coaches. This ensures that you will work on both strengths and weaknesses with the ultimate goal of becoming awesome at everything ?
Classes last 60 minutes in total and include:
- Warm up/Mobility
- Skill/Strength Development
- WOD (workout of the day)
- Cool Down/Stretch
Crossfit Foundations Class
Completion of our Foundations class is a prerequisite to attending any of our group classes with the exception of CrossFit Lite & Kettlebells.
Our Foundations class is the opportunity for you to learn how to perform the fundamental movements of CrossFit safely under the instruction of highly qualified coaches and how to scale them according to individual level of ability.
This course is 3 x 1 hour sessions and will cover the following movements:
- Air squat
- Front squat / Back squat
- Overhead squat
- Shoulder press
- Push press
- Push jerk
- Sumo deadlift high pull
- Medicine ball clean
- Kettlebell swing
- Wall ball
- Pull up
- Press up
- Toes to bar
Following completion of the Foundations course we recommend that you attend a minimum of 4 CrossFit Beginners classes to put your newly acquired skills into practice before attending regular CrossFit classes.
CrossFit Lite is designed for non-members who would like to try CrossFit but without all the technical aspects of gymnastics and weight lifting.
This class aimed at people who are new to CrossFit and functional training. This class provides an opportunity to enjoy CrossFit without having to go through an induction (Foundations Class) first. It is £5 pay on the door and no booking is required.
The main differences between CrossFit and CrossFit Beginners are that group numbers are smaller and more time is spent perfecting skills and movement patterns rather than focusing on strength development. In order to ensure that new members become competent in key CrossFit movements, we recommend attendance to a minimum of 4 CrossFit Beginners classes before attending regular CrossFit classes.
Our kettlebell classes utilise both kettlebell and body weight movements in a variety of different workout formats to provide a high intensity workout which is scalable to all levels of ability. The class is taught by a qualified kettlebell coach who teaches all movements thoroughly at the beginning of each class. Kettlebells are a fantastic way of developing/enhancing strength & muscular endurance.
Olympic Weightlifting Classes
We offer both beginners and intermediate Olympic weightlifting, both classes are delivered by our qualified Olympic weightlifting / UKSCA coach and encompass the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch. Each class will focus upon a different lift which will be broken down into derivatives to ensure that the movements are performed safely and effectively. This class is not only good to help develop strength but also will aid CrossFit performance.
It is recommended that you attend the beginners class initially until you are competent at these movements at which point you will be advised to attend the intermediate class.
Personal training will provide you with the extra motivation, support and guidance that you may need to push yourself physically and mentally in order to achieve your desired fitness / performance goals, or body image. We are fortunate enough to have several personal trainers who can focus on different training methods including:
- TRX Training
- Olympic Weightlifting
