Name: Reebok CrossFit Duna
Address / Location: Hajogyari Sziget 1033 Budapest
BOX-Owner: Klaus Jespersen
Open since: December 2012
How did you come to CrossFit?
Being a fat old ass, a friend told me about CrossFit back in 2010 and – long story short – it changed my life.
Why did you open your own box?
I’d like to help others get all the same benefit I got/get out of CrossFit, regardless of good/bad fitness level/shape.
Why exactly should I join YOUR box?
If you’d like to be in an international positive community, where it is all about what you can do, instead what you cannot do – you will feel at home.
What makes it standout from others?
We believe it is very important to know who we actually work out and sweat with day by day, so our aim is to get to know to our members well enough to be able to support them the best possible way to reach their target and also to have a good time in our BOX.
How does your member structure look like? (Number of members, Male/Female, Young/Old, any competitive athletes?)
We are just below 100 members, from across the globe, from ages 14 to 57, with 50/50 female/male mix. We have several athletes signed up for Battle of London and Italian Throwdown.
Do you have additional training possibilities (Yoga, Gymnastics etc.)?
We have CrossFit and Yoga.
Do you consult your members in nutrition questions?
Every quarter we do Whole30 program with clean eating for 30 days otherwise lots of focus on eating real food.
If I start as a beginner – how does my training in the first month look like?
As a rockie we focus a lot on the basic movements but will still join the WOD with the others for the energy and fun to be part of the gang.
Do you organize any internal or open competitions?
We have many internal competitions and everybody can join for The Open, Battle of London etc.
Do you have links to other boxes?
No not yet, great idea – I will have soon.
Can I drop in if I am passing your city? Who do I have to contact?
As a fellow CrossFitter you are always welcome, just shoot us a mail/message and we guide you through our online booking system @ www.reebokcrossfitduna.com very easy by the way.
