How did you come to CrossFit?

I started CrossFitting while I was in the Army in 2011

Why did you open your own box?

When I attended the L1 it was just to know more about the method. However, after seeing the hosting box and the environment I decided to open my own box.

Why exactly should I join YOUR box? What makes it standout from others?

I believe that any box has its own personality. We believe in making people feel at home as soon as they step in the box. We work hard on their fitness but also on their wellbeing.

How does your member structure look like? (Number of members, Male/Female, Young/Old, any competitive athletes?)

The majority are guys from 20 to 42 years old. The girls are less. In 90 members, 70% are guys. We have about 4 guys competing but never made it pass the Open.

Do you have additional training possibilities (Yoga, Gymnastics etc.)?

Brazilian JiuJitsu.

Do you consult your members in nutrition questions?

We do give them some guidelines on nutrition but we do not vouch for either Paleo or Zone diets.

If I start as a beginner – how does my training in the first month look like?

Mechanics analysis, ON RAMP course, Beginners Class (lot of bodyweight, increasing metabolic conditioning).

Do you organize any internal or open competitions?

We are organizing the first one with some other affiliates.

Do you have links to other boxes?

We do. In fact, we are about to open another box in central Lisbon.

Can I drop in if I am passing your city? Who do I have to contact?

Of course! Paulo Cura wod.sintra@gmail.com or Luis Filipe crossfit2725@gmail.com
