Forging Elite Fitness
in Sutton Coldfield
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many military units and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience age or ability. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind, both of whom have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
