Key Ideas

It's a challenge

Many of us stray away from stepping out of our comfort zone, leaving our lives and bodies in a stagnant state.

CrossFit can provide a challenge both mentally and physically.

You will see results

If you commit to regular attendance to CrossFit, your strength will improve. Your endurance will improve. Your overall health will improve, as will your bodily aesthetics.

It's a culture and community

Individuals experiencing real challenges and providing endless support for one another quickly become a family, not just a class.

Workout with a purpose

By not specializing in any one area and working on all of them instead, CrossFit provides one of the best overall fitness experiences for creating a better quality of life.

Home Work Outs

Burpees are a quick push-up and jump combination that can be done easily on a flat surface. It’s a good idea to start with five to ten of them, and then challenge yourself with 100 in one go.


Air squats are an effective basic lower body exercise that can be done anywhere and combined with push-ups, mountain climbers and lunges, become a full body work out.

Work Out Creativity

Simple movements can be made challenging and more effective by holding them at key positions(like the bottom movement of a squat), making the muscles work harder. Any exercise that gets your heart pumping and makes you uses oxygen as fuel for the muscles is a cardio exercise.


Home furniture, like a chair, can be used to support your squats and also your upper body during tricep dips. For weights, broomsticks or jugs full of water can be used.


Keep washing your hands, eating healthy, and hydrating yourself, while getting plenty of sleep.
