JUST A FEW QUESTIONS WE HEAR REGULARLY TO HELP YOU
Frequently asked questions
Is CrossFit For Me?
Yes. Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.
Do I have to be fit to start?
How often should i come?
2-4 classes a week is a realistic for beginners, depending on your level of fitness when you start. It may take a while for your body to get used to training at that intensity, so at the beginning you might need more recovery time between training days. Over the first few months, start working your way up to training 5 days a week.
What kind of results can I expect?
Be patient. Results take time but if you’re consistent, they absolutely will come. The exciting thing as a beginner is that results come fairly quickly, even in 30 days you can really see a difference in your strength and overall fitness.
Im a lady and dont want to get bulky!
You don’t produce testosterone like male and unless you plan to train multiple times a day, like an elite athlete you will just develop a lean and effective bodyshape.
What do I need to bring with me?
Normal workout clothes (t-shirt, shorts/leggings, trainers). A towel and water bottle are optional but encouraged.
What can I expect from a Free Consultation.
Your free consultation is our chance to get to know you, understand your goals, see our gym, see how we work and talk about our plans. Its a 15-30 minute chat. No sales pressure, just a chance to see if you like what we do and who we are.
Im scared, nervous, worried about starting. Should I be?
We’ve all been there…it normal! Everyone is always open and friendly to new-comers,we pride oursleves on being the friendliest gym around. We promote a family-like atmosphere of support and camaraderie amongst our members. One of our coaches will take you under their wing and help you through your introductory period and teach you everything these is to know during your 5 Get Started Session. Everyone remembers what it was like at the start and we all want to see each other succeed. Most importantly, we won’t ever have you do something that you are uncomfortable with or that is too advanced for your current fitness level. We've got your back.
Ok awesome, I want to get started... what do I do now?
It could not be more simple, just book a free consultation to meet with a coach, we will sort the rest.

I havent trained for a while (or ive been out with an injury) will it be hard for me to get started?
Our training is designed to be challenging for all, but every workout is modified to suit any fitness level or injury. What that means is whether you are new or an elite athlete, you can do the same workout, but the workout is adjusted according to each athlete’s fitness level. We teach our members how to focus on their own journey using the other members around them for motivation, and our coaches always provide support every step of the way. Reach out and let us know you’re interested!
Am I stuck into a contract?
Nope. Our memberships are rolling contracts. Just give us 1 months notice and we can end or pause your membership at any time.
