Start CrossFit Today

“The road to someday leads to a town of never.”
— Tony Robbins

I am a firm believer that anyone can start CrossFit and enjoy the benefits of what it has to offer as a health and fitness programme.

It is NOT JUST for the elite and gifted - I can attest to that as I am not that. I am a regular person who uses it to enhance my health and well being on a daily basis.

How do I start CrossFit?

Everyone was a beginner at some stage, and the hardest part is always starting. When I first began CrossFit, no one knew what it was, and there were hardly any facilities around that supported this fantastic method of training. I had to self-teach myself the movements and workouts and learn from my mistakes.

 

These days, however, some highly qualified professionals will educate you to help you improve your fitness. They will step by step guide you from your first day in the gym. 

We've carefully devised a process to make sure you're taken care of from your first day in the gym. Our coaches will step by step guide you through a free consultation, series of 1:1 sessions and finally into group classes to make sure you're confident and proficient in all the movements we use. It's our own way of informally assessing your level of strength and fitness to make sure we can help you as best possible going forwards. The coach that leads you through your initial 1:1s will be your personal coach going forwards. This is for constant check in's and help with your training going forward to make sure you continue to work towards your own goals.
