Have you always wanted to try out the all-so-popular CrossFit that seems to be on everyone’s lips, but the idea of maybe not being able to ‘keep up’ in the class daunts on you? Then, no need to fret any longer! CrossFit at Strongbox in Medina Centrale is now offering classes without the need of doing the ‘Basics Course’, which basically means that the class itself will be dedicated to complete beginners, all going at the same pace! CrossFit workouts are constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All classes are reflective of all the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. So therefore, instead of learning all this in the two day course and then being thrown into the classes, you can now just come along to the 9am sessions which will have extra time allocated within it to learning the basics and techniques. The 9am class will be most suited to those who are completely new to CrossFit or recent starters who would appreciate some extra work on technique.
