What makes CrossFit different to other gyms?
CrossFit is about variety and adaptation. We programme our workouts for General Physical Preparedness. 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.
So for you, this means you’re a better runner than the best weightlifter, a better weightlifter than the best runner, and are generally physically prepared for anything in your everyday life. Plus you’ll live in a healthy body with a strong, lean physique.
I am out of shape and the people I have seen who do CrossFit look really fit, will I fit in?
Of course, CrossFit is for everyone regardless of age, sex, body mass etc. Our community will embrace you as a new member and provide you with all the encouragement you need.
I am a member of another CrossFit affiliate and will be passing by, can I call in for a WOD?
Yes you are more than welcome to join one of our classes just let us know when you are looking to come. First session is always FREE!
What are functional movements?
Movements that occur in everyday lives e.g. squatting, picking items up, pushing and pulling things.
What if I have a previous injury?
Come in and have a chat with us and we will discuss scaling options with you to enable you to complete the workouts
I don’t feel confident in all of the CrossFit movements yet, is there a way I can get better before I can attend the classes?
There are several options following your foundations classes:
- You can attend ‘open gym’ to practise all of the movements you have learnt.
- You could attend ‘CrossFit Beginners’ which is designed for individuals who feel they need additional tuition before attending the main stream CrossFit classes or for individuals who are returning from injury.
- You can get personal training where we can work one to one with you to improve your confidence in completing the CrossFit movements.
I struggle to arrange child care occasionally , can my child come with me to classes?
Come and have a chat with us and we will try and arrange something so you don’t miss out on a workout.
Will I get a chance to compete at CrossFit competitions?
Yes, we will advertise and promote as many CrossFit competitions as possible in addition to entering teams when possible. This is a great opportunity to gauge where you stand compared to other CrossFit athletes in addition to meeting fellow CrossFitters.
