"Constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity."

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 programme works for everyone – people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.

 

Constantly Varied

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

 

Functional Movements

CrossFit uses safe, effective and efficient movements similar to those you use every day in life.

 

High Intensity

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

WORLD CLASS 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. Practise 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.”
