By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Over the weekend our awesome member and friend Letty completed the Coast 2 Coast. What an amazing achievement. We are all super proud of you and you definitely deserve a few days off but not too many:) Letty will give her own account of her experience of this mammoth effort in a future blogpost so stay tuned for that. She has put a bunch of photos up on her Facebook even with some cool action shots. Well done Letty really looking forward to seeing you back in the gym and hearing all about the experience.

Marcus and Danielle Leaving Party

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are meeting this Friday 15/2 at the Bog for a few drinks and some hopefully above average chat to send these two off in style. I have already written about how grateful we are for having Marcus as a coach here and we wish them both the best of luck for the future. Please turn up if even just for an hour to show your appreciation.

Extra Competitor Work

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are adding small elements to some of the classes for all you guys and girls who want to compete in CrossFit. There will be plenty of work in the normal classes but if you want to compete in CrossFit there are certain elements you will need to work on to be competitive. Those elements will be included gradually over this next training cycle. It is to be done after the class MetCon on the days you have time or during Open Gym. It is straight forward work and shouldn’t demand too much explaining.

We are adding these elements to help a small number of members who need the extra challenge. As we pride ourselves on being able to help all levels this goes both ways as in being able to help new members get into fitness and high level members wanting to take the next step. Keep training hard and we are looking forward to seeing some awesome results during this training cycle.

BOOK INTO CLASS!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As you have seen classes are starting to pick up for real and it is super important that you book in. The reason for the booking system is so we don’t have classes that are so big that it gets unsafe. We pride ourselves on our ability to give every member a quality training session and that can only happen if we get 16 people max in each class. You are paying for quality so that is what we want to deliver. We still have 4.30pm and 6.30pm for you to use. If you can only do 5.30pm you better get in quick and book a few classes in advance. You still have the option of doing the CrossFit Wod during Club GPP on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6.30pm and Open Gym Tuesday and Thursday 4.30pm there is always a coach to help you. We only have the space we have and we will keep adding classes to the time table as our other classes fill up, but 7am, 4.30pm and 6.30pm still have plenty of available bookings on most days. take advantage of it. Looking forward to seeing you in class.

CrossFit for Regular People

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have had a bunch of new people come in this month and we predict many more to come in over the next months. It is amazing to see everyone come in and try out CrossFit. You would undoubtedly have heard a lot about CrossFit both from people who do it but also from people who have never set foot in a CrossFit box. Everyone seem to have an opinion about CrossFit. The only way to really know what we do is to try us out yourself. We love seeing new people down here and the reaction we get when they realize what we actually do on a daily basis. Motivating regular people to learn brand new lifts and skills and provide them with consistency in their training and improve their quality of life. Proving you don’t need to be a “professional athlete” in any way to have access to quality training and you don’t need to smash your body everyday to improve your fitness.

We can’t wait to help you all out and spread the word about what CrossFit is about. it goes way beyond just working out and you see that from the first moment to step through our doors.

Please Book In and Pay Attention

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Classes are getting bigger and it is super important that you book in so we can prepare appropriate warm ups and make the class flow smoothly during the hour. We will never show anyone the door for not booking in but you will be asked to perform 50 Burpees to join in:) You have been warned. As class sizes increase so does the importance of paying attention to the coach so you all get a good workout and don’t have to rush to get things done. We are all for talking some smack and catching up with your friends but do it before and after class. People in the class have places to go after class so we need to stay on time please.

If you follow these two simple rules everything else will take care of itself. Lets have some fun and keep training hard. Next training phase is about to start so prepare for more work and cool MetCons.
