Getting Started

What are you waiting for?

We are changing the way we run our Intake courses.

In September 2023 we will move to ‘Fundamental’ classes, a rolling programme of 12 sessions covering everything you need to know to start CrossFit and a little more. These sessions will be open to those brand new to CrossFit and our existing members too, so we can all brush up on our basics.

These sessions are designed to coach you step by step through the fundamental movements and training methods of CrossFit in a fun a supportive small-group environment.

These sessions will run on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm and Saturday mornings at 10:30am.

If you are brand new to CrossFit, please get in touch and we can advise you when the fundamentals starts from session 1. This will give you the best learning experience, with each session building on the previous.

You are free to start with any membership option you’d like, but we’d highly recommended prioritising attending the fundamentals sessions first and foremost, then using any additional sessions against our regular timetable, or strength room when you feel ready.

All of our membership options carry absolutely no minimum terms or tie ins, so there’s nothing to lose by giving it a go. By the end of the course, you’ll have gained the skills and knowledge to train safely in any CrossFit gym – especially ours.

Our very first Fundamentals session will begin on Saturday 2nd September at 10:30am, then continue the following Tuesday at 7.30pm and so on…

Step 1: Enquire
