No shortcuts. No gimmicks. Just tough, old school training and great results.
CrossFit can equally be described as state of the art, cutting edge of athletic performance training. Or alternatively, as old school training stressing high intensity, functional training using ‘primitive’ training tools. We typically use ‘retro kit’ such as kettlebells, ropes, matts, vaulting horse, gymnastic rings, olympic lifting techniques, sprints and medicine balls. We emphasise skills and coaching over a broad range of physical tasks such as learning how to use your body, running, jumping, throwing or moving heavy objects or your own body.
We use specific training tools known to develop real human ‘horse power’ and shy away from machines, isolation exercises and and low intensity training..
We dont do pec decks, machines or mirrors and no, we wont sell you a protien shakes, skin tight Muscle T shirts or supplements. Instead we will talk about good nutrition, efficient biomechanics, functional movement, skill, speed, and power.
If you want to get fit, get healthy or get prepare for a challenge – come and see us. If you want to develop your beach muscles or look in a mirror as you ‘do your arms’ – we are probably not the place for you.
CrossFit Bristol offers group coaching, hard work and hard earned results.

What is it ?
CrossFit has a unique approach to Fitness training. In fact, its so good that its used by Professional Fighters, The U.S Marine Corps, Navy S.E.A.L s, Athletes, Law Enforcement Agencies and Elite Military Units across the world. Just about anyone placing human beings in an environment where life its self depends on human physical performance wants CrossFit or an imitation of it. CrossFit works for people of all abilities and allows ordinary people to develop seemingly impossible physical abilities.
Where did it come from ?
Crossfit was founded by Greg Glassman who ‘tells it how it is’. Glassman challenged the existing fitness orthodoxy by asking ackward questions about training and subsequently offending a range of ‘experts’ in the process. The Fitness establishment tried to ignore or undermine Glassman and CrossFit as a minority activity. Eventually they branded CrossFit dangerous, and even a cult – at one stage, none of which proved to be true. To compound the issue, Glassman and his theories were proved to work consistently who then shared them freely with anyone that was interested.
The CrossFit method proved so successful, it expanded from a specialist interest for a minority to the proven tool used by elite athletes, fighters and the armed forces. CrossFit’s appeal has not been missed by the military. Particularly the special forces community who embraced it with open arms. CrossFit has taken off so dramatically here that there are even separate sections for military based CrossFit Affiliates.
The U.S marines were so impressed by the CrossFit method that they adopted a CrossFit based fitness selection process. More recently, the Navy S.E.A.L s adopted CrossFit to prepare recruits for their world famous B.U.D.s course and I believe its being used across the board by military and Law Enforcement staff. Coupled with its use by big name fighters such as B.J Penn .
How does Crossfit work?
Crossfit is delivers a complete programme of exercise and nutrition. It uses large multi joint exercises delivered with intensity in a range of highly varied sessions (called W.O.D. s). Training is short, intense, highly varied. These WOD’s are scaleable for different fitness levels or abilities. In recognition of their sheer intensity some work outs are even named – just like hurricanes……
The evidence for doing Crossfit is now so compelling the real question is simply this. Why aren’t you doing it ?
