Our Starter Package is a standalone month that offers you a great way to try out CrossFit for yourself without any long term commitment. Our Coaches are all homegrown from our community, so fully understand your learning needs. We'll introduce you to the foundational techniques required to move properly, lift safely & pace your fitness activities, allowing you to learn at your own pace. If you are a motivated to succeed, you're sure to love it.
Your first 3 sessions with us are 1-2-1 with your own Coach. This is a great way to start off slowly and get a greater understanding of our foundational movements. These sessions are both practical and educational, comprising of different Functional Movements using both barbells and bodyweight exercises. You will also learn flexibility & mobility drills, alongside soft tissue management (massage techniques). Our overall aim here is to build your confidence and basic skill set so that you can then enter the classes and start using your new skills as your foundational fitness level.
Following your initial 1-2-1 Coaching sessions, you'll have the opportunity to try out up to 9 classes. Each session will be led by a Coach and will help you build on your newly acquired, Foundational skills (see video). We have two levels of workout each day, an advanced and a scaled (beginner version). We fully understand that everyone has different ability levels and wants different things from their training, so each session is completely scaled to suit you. Please Note: All sessions should be used within a month of your Start Date.
We are Group Fitness Specialists, it's simply what we do best. You can choose from are main CF Group WOD sessions (Workout Of the Day), Cf Lite & Barbell Club sessions. You can even book into our Open Gym sessions to practice what you've learnt in your own time. With classes on at 10am,12pm, 5pm, 6pm & 7pm every weekday & two classes on Saturday at 9am & 10am, you'll have loads to choose from. (To see our full listing, hit the Login button on our website). You will never be on your own, with us. If it's not our Coaches guiding you, it'll be the the people you'll meet within our community. Coaching & support from every angle....
Often underrated as a strength element, this is very much our Foundation. Utilising basic progressions & correct movement mechanics, we help you navigate the world of basic Press-ups & Ring-Rows into the more advanced Ring Muscle-ups & Handstand Press-ups. These movements are proven to develop a solid core & lay the foundation for strength.
Having a good Engine (aerobic Ability) is essential to fitness. Alongside giving you the ability to do more in life, it helps you to recover from more strenuous bouts of activity. Here we utilise both longer, slower workouts that include Bikes, Rowers, Running, skipping & Bodyweight movements to gradually increase your fitness.
CF has really opened up the doors of strength for both Men & Women alike. Simply having more muscle will burn more calories, increase functional movement & add to sports performance. Here we introduce you basic compound movements like a weighted Squat & Overhead Press. And gradually introduce you to more advanced Olympic Lifts.
If you can't get into a good position to start with, you won't be able to progress with your strength. Straight from the start we check your range of movement and introduce you to stretching techniques. We also show you how to manage your soft tissue, so you can help reduce any accumulated movement issues.

What Is CrossFit?
CrossFit combines movements from Gymnastics, Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, Kettlebells, Medicine balls, Skipping, Rowing, Biking & Running & much more. With the aim of creating unique, Constantly Varied, Mixed Intensity & Scalable workouts to create amazing fitness results for all.
Can anyone do CrossFit?
Yes indeed. One of the key attributes of CrossFit is its scalability. If you are just starting out, our workouts will be tailored to suit your current fitness and skill level, so although you will be doing essentially the same workouts as more advanced Athletes, you will be doing a lot less. This is the great thing about being coached; there is always someone there to correct your technique and push you just that little bit extra. As your fitness and skill levels gradually increase, so will the intensity of the workout, you can even start to challenge for the top male and female time of the day if you really want to push yourself. There really are no limits to CrossFit, and even top CrossFit athletes find the WODs challenging, just watch the CrossFit games competitors in action.
Will CrossFit help me to lose weight?
More good news guys, further studies have revealed that participants of high & Mixed intensity interval training commonly lost far greater fatty deposits, at a much higher rate, than those participating in low intensity, long duration activity. In short, because your body is operating at a much higher rate, the metabolic demand for fuel by your muscles (remember, we use multi joint, functional movements) is far greater. Furthermore, researchers reported that subjects who performed this type of training burned almost 10 percent more calories during the 24 hours following exercise as compared to those who performed continuous steady-state exercise.
If this increase in resting metabolism wasn’t enough, researchers further confirmed, that HIIT actually enhances the metabolic machinery within the muscles cells to promote fat burning and actually blunt fat production in the first place.

I’m a woman, will I put on too much muscle?
This is actually really hard to do and comes down to two main aspects. Firstly, testosterone, this is a naturally occurring hormone within the body that is responsible for muscle growth (abundant in men). Testosterone in comparison to estrogen is seen on a much lower scale in women, therefore making it much harder to produce muscle. Secondly, muscle growth is directly affected by the frequency and amount of weight lifted. So unless you are going to train 5-6 days per week over many, many years, consistently lift very heavy weights, take performance enhancing drugs or have a 1-in-a-zillion genetic predisposition to extremely large amounts of testosterone, your chances of becoming ‘Freakishly’ big are extremely slim indeed. What you will gain is overall strength and speed, the ability to move properly and with some dedication, an athletic physique.
Will CrossFit help my chosen sport?
Our CrossFit Classes aim to improving your ‘General Physical Preparedness (GPP) through our constantly varied, functional movement based program. This means that you will still receive professional strength and conditioning coaching, only it will be broad based and not specific to your sport. That being said, if your sport involves a need for ‘core’ improvement, mobility, strength, explosiveness, increased anaerobic and aerobic capacities and functionality of any kind (I can’t think of one that doesn’t), CrossFit will indeed give you that winning edge.
