CrossFit is a strength, conditioning, and overall fitness program consisting mainly of a mix of aerobic exercise, calisthenics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weightlifting.
CrossFit, Inc. describes its strength and conditioning program as "constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad time and modal domains,"
CrossFit aims to develop fitness in what the company deems to be the ten components of physical fitness: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

Circuit training is a form of body conditioning that involves endurance training, resistance training and high-intensity aerobics. Similar to High-intensity interval training, it targets building strength and muscular endurance. Traditionally, the time between exercises in circuit training is short, often with rapid movement to the next exercise. Designed to test a variety of different functional movements. These classes are 45 minutes long but be prepared to work for the majority of it.

The two competition lifts in order are the snatch and the clean and jerk. The snatch is a wide-grip, one-move lift. The clean and jerk is a close-grip, two-move lift.
People lift weights for a variety of different reasons. One of the main reasons is to improve their overall health. When compared to machines, free weights improve not only strength but muscle function as well.
With us now being added as an affiliate into Olympic Weightlifting New Zealand you can be sure a focus will be on technique and skill as we look to encourage the sport of weightlifting for all of our members to prevent injury and the focused crossover into Crossfit.

Legend meaning an "extremely famous or notorious person, especially in a particular field". This class is exactly that. With the older generation in mind, CFWA looks to focus on cardiovascular endurance, stamina, flexibility, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy in a low impact environment. Similar to our Circuit class where we focus on H.I.I.T but with a safe and age conscious consideration.
The Legends Class is accredited with the ACC Strength and Balance program.
Coached by Cam Urgert our Osteo, you can be sure you are in good hands.

With the scheduled Open Gym be sure to work on those extra's while the gym is empty. We do allow members to work though those extras during, before and after classes but with the group class taking priority for space and equipment. The gym is normally open from 5am until 7:30pm so plenty of time between classes if a coach is still around to have the roller door open.
