What should I expect at my first CrossFit class?

We are always open and friendly to new-comers. We promote a family-like atmosphere of support and camaraderie amongst our members. You’ll be allocated a ‘buddy’ in the class to help get you through the session, just to make sure you’ve got a friendly face there to answer all those niggling questions you might have that you don’t want to ask the coach!

We typically start with a 15 minute warm-up, mobility and skills, then proceed to our “Workout of the Day” (WOD). The WOD can consist of anything from push-ups, pull-ups, and squats, to rowing, presses, and deadlifting. Our specialty is not specialising; every day is a completely different workout.

How often should I do CrossFit?

We recommend that you start out by doing the CrossFit classes 3 times per week and then gradually work up to doing it 5-6 times per week for maximum results. Your body will take a while to adapt to the high-intensity workouts and at first it is a bit of a shock to the system, but gradually your body’s work capacity will increase and your recovery will improve, allowing you to increase your training frequency.
