Our FREE WORKOUT session is a complimentary training session at CrossFit London for adults 18 years or older of all ability levels. At this session you will have the opportunity to work with a certified CrossFit coach in a small-group setting and try a regular CrossFit workout at no charge. Our FREE WORKOUT sessions are by appointment only and take place each week on Wednesdays (8-9 am) and Thursdays (7-8 pm). Reserve your spot online: http://www.crossfitlondon.ca/wp/getting-started/free-workout/

To join CrossFit London regular CrossFit classes you must complete ONE of the following:


($125)
Each month, CrossFit London holds a 4-week Bootcamp that incorporates the exercise principles of CrossFit into fun and challenging high-intensity workouts designed to get you real results. Class size is limited to 10 people to ensure personal coaching for each participant. Bootcamp takes place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6-7 am. Reserve your spot online: http://www.crossfitlondon.ca/wp/getting-started/bootcamp/

There are only a few spots left for our January 2015 and February 2015 CrossFit Bootcamps. You can sign up online from home to secure your spot!

($85)
CrossFit London also offers a One Day Intro session, which teaches the fundamental CrossFit movements, Olympic weight lifting, mobility, and recovery exercises under the supervision of a certified CrossFit coach. Designed with the beginner in mind, our goal is to help you feel more comfortable doing CrossFit with us or on your own. Our One Day Intro sessions are typically held 1x/month on a Saturday from 1-5 pm. Reserve your spot online: http://www.crossfitlondon.ca/wp/getting-started/1dayintro/

 


($65-75/hr based on coach’s experience)
Completion of at least three (1-hour) personal training sessions with a CrossFit coach is required before joining regular CrossFit classes. Personal training can be done individually or with a small group (2-4 people) for the same hourly rate, and appointment times are flexible. To book an appointment email: info@crossfitlondon.ca

 

Once you have completed our CrossFit London Bootcamp OR One Day Intro OR 3 personal training sessions, you have achieved the basic skill level required to jump into our regular CrossFit classes.

 


Regular classes are held six days per week (see schedule) and are based on the CrossFit prescription of constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.  We offer 22 Regular CrossFit classes, 2 Power Hour classes, 1 Mobility class, and 5 Open Gym classes each week. As a bonus, we DO NOT require you sign up for your workout time in advance and you have the flexibility to drop into any class time you wish week to week.

Each regular CrossFit class delivers fitness that is designed to be broad, general, and inclusive. In every workout, you will be presented with new fitness challenges and an ever-changing stimulus by incorporating many different activities and skills, such skipping, rowing, running, Olympic weight lifting, gymnastics, dumbbells, kettle bells, medicine balls, box jumps, rope climbs, tire flips, body weight movements, muscle ups, and more!

Our group classes are community-orientented, have tiered programming for beginners, intermediate, and advanced/competitive athletes, and focus on skill development, performance, and constant self-improvement under the supervision of a qualified coach.

35 Classes/Week
22 CrossFit Classes: High intensity strength and cardiovascular CrossFit training open to all levels of athletes. Programming is tiered for beginners, intermediate, and advanced/competitive athletes to ensure everyone gets the right level of challenge.
5 Open Gym Classes: Open gym time to choose your own workout to continue to develop your CrossFit skills and address weaknesses in performance.
3 Bootcamp Classes: 1-month long Bootcamp designed to introduce new members to CrossFit training principles.  Training takes place 3x/week.
2 Free Trial Classes: Non-members can try a CrossFit workout for FREE in a small group setting to see what a real CrossFit class is like before joining the gym. Advance registration is required for this class: http://www.crossfitlondon.ca/wp/getting-started/free-workout/
2 Power Hour Classes: Dedicated training times to practice the Olympic and power lifts under the supervision of an Olympic lifting coach.
1 Mobility Class: A dedicated hour each week to work on mobility, stretching, and recovery exercises with the guidance of a coach.

 

For those individuals who can’t commit to a long-term membership for work, family, or travel reasons, a 10-Pass or 25-Pass training card can be purchased that allows you to drop in for 10 or 25 regular classes any time at your convenience. Pay-Per-Use Passes expire one year after purchase. This option is only available for those who have successfully completed a Bootcamp, a 1-Day Intro session, or three personal training sessions.

I Can’t Do That, Yet

This article was posted in: Uncategorized

The attitude for success in any endeavor, whether artistic, intellectual, or athletic, has two components that are both equally essential, but are in tension. The first is an understanding of the level you are currently at. The second is an understanding that the level you are at is not the pinnacle of what you are capable of achieving. How do we reconcile these two principles? By adding one word to a phrase many of us like to use all the time: “I can’t do that.”

11043052_1098473603502779_8426871394240016182_n

People can do incredible things. In any human endeavor there are people who have reached levels of expertise that are unfathomable to the common person. We live in the online age where we are immersed in such performances. Although awesome to witness, constantly being reminded of elite level capabilities can be damaging to the attitude for success if we do not recognize how the elites got to where they are – through years and years of hard work.

The first thing that can happen is that people get unrealistic expectations for what their level should be. The biggest mistake a new Crossfitter can make is using an experienced Crossfitter as a measuring stick for where they should currently be with their fitness. The result will be that the new Crossfitter will continually fail to meet their own expectations, always feel like they are losing, and often times quit before ever reaching their personal goals. What these people are forgetting is that fitness is like any other endeavor – one can only get good at it by doing it!

Thus, when starting Crossfit one must adopt the beginner’s mindset. There will be things that some people will make look effortless that you will not be able to do. That is a fact. You should not expect yourself to do those things right away, nor measure yourself based on that standard. The important thing is that you recognize that this does not speak to anything inherent about yourself or anything inherent about the experienced Crossfit athlete. All it says is that you have not yet put the work into Crossfit that they have.

Conversely, the new Crossfit athlete may realize just how wide the gap between themselves and the elites is, and conclude that reaching such a high level of physical capability is something above and beyond them. They take an all or nothing approach, focusing on an end that is so far in the distance that they cannot see the small attainable steps to get there. As a result, they do not believe that what they cannot currently do is something that may be attainable in the future. By recognizing that the long road to long-term goals has many intermediate stops along the way, it becomes clear that what we cannot do now does not reflect our potential.

People can do incredible things, but no one is born able to do incredible things. In recognizing this fact we can look at the incredible achievements of human beings around us through the attitude for success. We see such achievements not as a reason to be discouraged, but as a source of inspiration. We know that everyone starts from the same novice level, and thus we know not to hold ourselves to the standards of those who have specialized in a craft for years. But, at the same time, we know that there is a road of intermediary attainable steps to allow us to achieve whatever our goals in the specific area are, fitness or otherwise. So next time someone with more experience than you does something incredible, if you find yourself thinking “well if he/she can do that I must be able to do ____”, or “I can’t do that”, catch yourself and instead think: “I can’t do that, yet.”

Will it be easy? Nope. Will it be worth it? Absolutely!
