How did you come to CrossFit?
Thanks to my friend who lives in London. He talked a lot about this sport. We always been very restless so we immediately started to investigate it.
Why did you open your own box?
We fall in love with CrossFit so we decided to make one crazy thing.. Open our own box! We wanted to link our lives to this sport and his philosophy.
Why exactly should I join YOUR box? What makes it standout from others?
Our box is humble. Winter is cold and summer is hot. We haven’t all the Crossfit material yet, but we have something that others don’t. CHARISM! We are able to convey what CrossFit is and means, showing people that their lives will change to a better lifestyle since you start to train with us because you will be part of this family! That’s why we are different!
How does your member structure look like? (Number of members, Male/Female, Young/Old, any competitive athletes?)
Our members are very different but all of them fantastic! We have students, police members, firefighters, housewifes, high performance athletes, IT… We couldn’t have a day without them. Our competition team will give much to talk about!
Do you have additional training possibilities (Yoga, Gymnastics etc.)?
We are focus only in CrossFit at this time. We only have special classes for Olympic weighlifting and powerlifting.
Do you consult your members in nutrition questions?
We advise our members inside our capacities. We have huge experience like athletes and also have knowledge in sports science.
If I start as a beginner – how does my training in the first month look like?
New members of the family have to pass a basic movements course, which includes all bases of CrossFit. Then, they start training with other people. CrossFit is for everybody, scalable for all!
Do you organize any internal or open competitions? Do you have links to other boxes?
We organize lots of open competitions. We are lucky to deal very well with other boxes and we do all kind of interbox. There isn’t a winner or a loser, we only expand the community feeling!
Can I drop in if I am passing your city? Who do I have to contact?
If you are from other city or country and you want to train with us, we will very glad to receive like one of us. You should contact with someone of the team: Marta, Javi, Mateo, Miguel and Jorge. Our main e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a facebook profile that we maintain update everyday! Take a look!
