What is CrossFit???

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning programme utilising constantly varied, functional movements performed at a high intensity. At CrossFit Teesside we specialize in not specializing. All CrossFit workouts are completely scalable and can be embraced by anybody no matter what level of fitness they possess. For example a grandma will have relatively less fitness levels than a 20 year old football player; however they can still train alongside each other carrying out identical functional movement patterns with just the reps and loads changing. At CrossFit Teesside you will attain a broad, well rounded level of fitness and no matter what level you are starting from you will be trained as an athlete in order to reach fitness levels you never realised you could attain. You will become proficient in the following recognised physical skills.

  • Cardio-respiratory Endurance
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Stamina
  • Speed
  • Power
  • Accuracy
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Coordination

The concept behind CrossFit is general physical preparedness (GPP), the idea of being prepared physically and mentally for an infinite number of tasks, which are transferable to everyday life.


Below are just some of the benefits from CrossFit and functional fitness.

  • Fat loss
  • Increased levels of strength and cardio fitness
  • Improved sleep and increased energy levels
  • Look, move and feel better
  • Activities that once were difficult become easier

Coaching, motivation and support.

At CrossFit Teesside we pride ourselves on the support, motivation and coaching you will receive as soon as you walk through the door.  You will always have a level 1 qualified CrossFit coach motivating and encouraging you through your WOD (workout of the day). This is something you won’t find in any other gym as a normality. We will demonstrate to you how to perform movements safely and then fine tune them for efficiency.  At CrossFit Teesside we genuinely care about you achieving your goals and seeing results!!!!
