How did you come to CrossFit?
I came in contact with CrossFit through my job as a Personal Trainer. It was love at first sight..
Why did you open your own box?
Always wanted to give people the optimal training and the possibility to open a box to a reasonable cost was perfect.
Why exactly should I join YOUR box? What makes it standout from others?
You should join our box because of the quality of our coaches. Our coaches have enormous experience in coaching and all of them are competing on high level.
How does your member structure look like? (Number of members, Male/Female, Young/Old, any competitive athletes?)
We have about 150 members and without counting exactly I would say male/female ration is equal. We have a couple of competitors 2-3 men (Eric Haraldsdotter, Alexander Alexandrov and Ako Rahim) on Regionals standard and 1 women (Sofia Kärrå). We also have 1 master (Ulrik Helms) aiming for the Games, he was 29 in the world last year in the 40-44 category.
Do you have additional training possibilities (Yoga, Gymnastics etc.)?
We have one yoga/mobility class per week.
Do you consult your members in nutrition questions?
Jessica has a masters degree in Nutrition, so she is the one who consults our members in nutrition questions.
If I start as a beginner – how does my training in the first month look like?
You would start with three one on one sessions. Where we would asses your body’s balance. After that we recommend the most members to start with our technique-classes.
Do you organize any internal or open competitions?
Yes, we have a yearly box-championship.
Do you have links to other boxes?
We are good friends with a couple of boxes here in Stockholm.
Can I drop in if I am passing your city? Who do I have to contact?
