What is Crossfit?
In Short: CrossFit is a thriving community of people who value true fitness with instruction from high quality coaches.
In Long: CrossFit is a fitness program designed around the things you do in the real world. CrossFit is personal training, but in a group setting to make it more challenging! We borrow exercises from things like weightlifting, gymnastics, rowing, track and field, and we mix it up a lot, so your body is always adapting, getting stronger, faster and better conditioned.
When you think of a “gym”, what comes to mind? Rows of machines and banks of cardio equipment? Workouts comprised of structured sets on a series of machines that never change? A program card and a brief run through your program? CrossFit Geelong is not that kind of gym. You won’t find machines or programs: you will find people and the tools for true fitness.
What does CrossFit Geelong have to offer?
What you get with CrossFit is coaching by certified and experienced trainers who teach you about real fitness. Putting you on a ‘leg press’ and making you go hard is not fitness, nor is it an effective form of training. You pay us for our knowledge and advice as applied to you and your life.
Is CrossFit suitable for everyone?
CrossFit is suitable for any level of experience; our emphasis on functional training means we prepare you to meet the physical challenges of your life. An Olympic athlete will be looking for Functional Dominance, while a person with average of low fitness ability will be looking for Functional Competence.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movement executed at high intensity that teach you strength, stamina, flexibility, endurance, power, speed, balance, agility, co-ordination and accuracy. All scaled to suit your ability.
