Getting Started at CrossFit London

This article was posted in: Blogs

What is CrossFit:

  • CrossFit is designed to develop well-rounded fitness through strength, conditioning, gymnastics, and mobility exercises to bring you time-efficient, effective, and fun workouts in a group training environment.
  • CrossFit is especially effective at getting people lean, strong, and fit, and is never boring.
  • Each 1-hour class consists of a warm-up, followed by some core or gymnastics skill work, then a strength/weight lifting element, and finishes up with a high-intensity workout.
  • Don’t let the intensity of CrossFit scare you away – with beginners our coaches emphasize proper mechanics and developing consistent form and technique before adding speed or load to the workout. Over time, the training ramps up as you continue to get stronger and faster, and the nature of CrossFit pushes you to learn new skills and never stop making progress as an athlete.
  • We offer two paths for training, and each day you’ll have the choice to self-select and follow our “Health & Wellness Program” or our “Competitive Program”, allowing you to find the right challenge and workout for YOU, based on how you’re feeling that day.
  • Although the workouts can sometimes be tough, thanks to our coaches they can be scaled to meet ANYONE’S ability level. We’re here to help you modify the workouts to deal with life’s realities – an injury, pregnancy, getting older, having a movement limitation – we’re here to help keep exercise in your life and help you stay on the path to health and wellness.

Why People Love Our Gym:

  • Each class is led by a coach and you will be paired with others that have similar physical abilities so you have a training partner each time you workout.
  • People that have a Personal Trainer are 75% more successful than those without, and people that have a training partner are 40% better than those who train alone. Our program makes use of these concepts to maximize your success!
  • CrossFit London is for people who want to surround themselves with a support network of hard-working and motivated people who help each other to achieve personal goals.

The Benefits of Being Coached:

  • Our coaches have spent extensive hours learning training methods and techniques to get you direct results. All you have to do is arrive at the gym ready to work, and our coaches will take care of the rest helping you to follow and modify the workouts to maximize individual results.
  • Our coaches know everyone by name, and we like to regularly check-in with people to make sure that everything is going well with their training. Our success is based on your success.
  • You have one body and it deserves the best care it can get. Having a coach support your fitness goals saves you the time, money, and energy it costs to learn what we know about achieving success.

Why Short term results mean nothing!

This article was posted in: Uncategorized

beforeandafterEveryone has seen before and after pictures that are shocking and stunning and they want in… they want to know “the secret” they read on into the click bait marketing headline that tells them about the secrets without telling them anything at all. It’s all a scam.

As a strength coach who has worked with thousands of athletes over years. I get to see what works, short and long term and my goal as a coach is to get people looking for the delayed gratification of knowing that they can obtain results, but the results aren’t the only goal.
It’s shockingly easy to get someone to lose 20lbs in 2 weeks, it’s shockingly hard to have them keep it off for 5 years. (the after- after photo’s are what you don’t see)

The actions taken to lose a lot of weight in a very short time are unsustainable, and therefore teach the person nothing about what they need to do long term to keep the weight off. Many people know this and think, if I can just take this short cut to losing the weight , then I will go to a more moderate plan. The problem is that they have obtained their goal, but have none of the tools, none of the practice it takes to continue to achieve maintaining their goal.

What would you rather A) lose 20lbs of fat today and regain it in 6 months or B) lose 20lbs of fat and keep it off for life. (this works with other fitness goals as well)
Your results will change when your strategy changes. Short term plans get short term results, and short term results mean nothing.
