How did you come to CrossFit?
Michi started CrossFit 4 Years ago at work. Then he established a home gym in his garden and introduced Domi into CrossFit.
Why did you open your own box?
There was always the idea of having our own box. As we are on actice duty we haven’t had the opportunity to deliver a constant schedule. After Dominik changed his job to realize constant WOD Times we chased the dream and opened CF Rosenheim. And at this point many thanks to Korbi for selfless supporting from beginning!
Why exactly should I join YOUR box? What makes it standout from others?
You should better ask this question to our members. But if we had to answer this one, we would say that we have an outstanding community and you will not only increase you work capacity about broad times and modal domains 😉 if you join us, but will also find new friends and a place where you can leave sorrows behind. And all of us are extremely hot!
How does your member structure look like? (Number of members, Male/Female, Young/Old, any competitive athletes?)
We actually offer 3-5 classes per day which are booked up most of the time. We have a 50/50% relation between male and female athletes at ages from 16-50 years. There are about 10 to 15 athletes who compete in local and national competitions. Some of these guys got CFRo on the podium for a few times in the last 6 months.
Do you have additional training possibilities (Yoga, Gymnastics etc.)?
We don’t have any additional classes.
Do you consult your members in nutrition questions?
Yes, we do so. We had a nutrition seminar and always try to lend an ear in nutrition questions.
If I start as a beginner – how does my training in the first month look like?
You start with 2×2 hours of an introduction course. In this course we bring the foundation of CrossFit, fitness and the basic movements to you. After that you can join regular classes and will get some extra help if needed.
Do you organize any internal or open competitions?
We regularly have an open gym day on sundays where we compete in little intern box challenges just for fun. Know we are looking forward, because we are moving. If everything goes well we get a tennis hall with over 650qm. So we become one of the biggest boxes of south Germany. This will be a lot of fun! And this place is made for challenging!
Do you have links to other boxes?
Yes we have. There’s a close relationship to many boxes and coaches in the region. We are trying to have some coaches summits regularly to learn from each other and improve our abilities. It’s something in planning with CrossFit Innsbruck and CrossFit Salzburg.
Can I drop in if I am passing your city? Who do I have to contact?
If you’re in town, just let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to save a spot for you. In case you have a shirt from your box for us, that would be awesome and obviously there is no drop in fee for you.
