Importance of learning the basics in CrossFit

November 23, 2018
When we look at our favourite athletes, and all the others performing high reps and lifting heavy, we are tempted to go fast to get to their level, skipping the vital steps that lead to a strong and a healthy CrossFit.

Do I need to be fit to start CrossFit?

November 16, 2018
Entering a CrossFit gym, or a "box" can be quite intimidating at first. Most members know how to do the movements and even though some are breathing hard, everyone is in shape. We might be wondering then, if we needed to get ourselves into a globo gym prior to considering starting CrossFit, or if those people are former athletes and sports specialists. The answer is no! In CrossFit, the magic world used all the time by professionals, coache

How many times a week should you WOD?

November 9, 2018
Often tempted to schedule a workout every day, CrossFitters are known to be a fierce breed which is not afraid to grind. Although we are warned from the beginning that we should rest at least 2 days per week or follow the pattern 3 days on 1 day off; we get caught up in the excitement of the class, our PR's, or our motivation to improve our movements. The focus on recovery in CrossFit is usually non-existent. We would rather research on how to i

Are you too comfortable in your CrossFit training?

November 2, 2018
You feel good, post regularly your PR's on Instagram, and really enjoy going to classes each week. It almost feels like it's too good to be true right? When everyone else is listing all the movements they have yet to achieve, you find noting wrong with your training. Could it be that you are missing something here?

CrossFitters: What’s in your gym bag?

October 26, 2018
  When we see athletes coming in with a big bag full of equipment we wonder: are all these used when training? Should I be carrying these around too?

It's dark in the morning, it's darker in the afternoon, the temperature has plummeted, and it seems like it cannot stop raining. We have officially entered the autumn and winter season. At the gym, although the atmosphere is still amazing, it's hard to fin the motivation to get there in the first place. Before skipping a workout snowballs into missing an entire week of training, let's set up a strategy to face the colder and gloomy days and pr

October 12, 2018
New kids classes are on the CrossFit 1971 Wimbledon location. Kids? CrossFit? Ok, we hear your concerns and at the same time your hidden enthusiasm for your child.

Can I Improve my CrossFit with Personal Training?

October 5, 2018
Can I Improve my CrossFit with Personal Training?   Perhaps you have noticed improvement in other member's skills, or have walked in the box during a Personal Training (PT) session. Like in any type of gym, you know it's possible to have PT sessions. But why would you spend more money when you are already paying your monthly fee and attending the specialty classes included in your membership?   Why Personal Training? If you conside

Why do so many people pay so much for CrossFit?

September 28, 2018
If you compare how much you pay for a monthly subscription in a commercial gym to the cost of CrossFit, it's legitimate that you ask yourself that question. If you have never attended a CrossFit class, then it's fair that it might seem unfair, too much, or extravagant to pay for that much "just" to train. But CrossFit is about other values which, once you experience them, become priceless. So, what goes on behind the closed doors of a CrossFit

September 21, 2018
