The main aim of our CrossFit classes is to foster elite and complete fitness in our participants. There are numerous mental and physical benefits of CrossFit… here are our top 5:

 

Improved health

 

The varied and whole-body-workout nature of CrossFit means that it vastly improves your physical health, your mental wellbeing and overall transforms your quality of life. Some of the physical benefits of CrossFit include:

  • Improved body composition
  • Increased weight loss
  • Improved conditioning
  • Gained muscle strength
  • Increased stamina and endurance
  • Better coordination and balance
  • Improved performance in sports

 

Longevity and Well-being

 

A Tufts University study found that the most reliable biomarker when it comes to estimating one’s quality of life and longevity was their muscle mass and strength. That’s right, strength is a better determinant of wellbeing and lifespan than cardio-vascular fitness, diabetes status, cholesterol level, weight or blood pressure.

Motivation

 

Don’t underestimate the power of social motivation – it’s the key to why CrossFit classes are so effective in getting the most out of their participants. In a regular gym workout, it’s all too easy to fall into a stale routine and stagnate because you don’t have the encouragement of a coach or the support of a team. The social, competitive and encouraging nature of CrossFit classes combats stagnation and promotes constant improvement – CrossFit classes are designed to provide you with maximum support and intensity so that you can achieve maximum results.

Building relationships

 

A typical gym is often made up of a collection of random people who are focused 100% on their own workouts. At CrossFit, the classes are a community. In our classes, you are surrounded by people who encourage you to push yourself and surpass your boundaries. It doesn’t matter if you finish first or last – absolutely everyone is supported and congratulated for trying their best and giving it a red hot go. The camaraderie of CrossFit is what makes the environment so unique and the experience so fulfilling.

 

Personal coaching

 

All of our CrossFit classes are led by friendly, supportive and experienced coaches. Our expert coaches provide encouragement, support and expertise – they will inspire you and give you the push you need to perform at your best.
