What is CrossFit?
The definition of CrossFit is:
This quick, strength and conditioning training combines weights, cardio, endurance and gymnastics- no one session is ever the same. Getting you out of a routine and keeping sessions constantly varied and surprising makes CrossFit fun, motivational and great for all-round fitness development.
The aim of CrossFit is to get you feeling strong, healthy and in the best shape possible through pushing yourself in this high intensity workout session. Although training within a group you are competing against yourself in a friendly but motivational workspace.
CrossFit @ The Hive
At The Hive, our CrossFit team have worked hard to design and develop a CrossFit offering that we believe is the best on the South Coast. Our new facility and equipment is designed specifically for a range of CrossFit exercises and combinations for our members.
We're building a CrossFit community here at The Hive, which is growing fast! So make sure you come down and give it a try.
We are a fully certified venue with CrossFit and our staff are fully qualified. Those that are new to CrossFit will need to have an induction with one of our qualified CrossFit coaches.
All of these are common questions that we get from new and potential members, and generally these are fuelled by incorrect information or the "stigma" surrounding CrossFit. Well at the Hive we cater for everyone and anyone, and our members are diverse in age and ability. There are no big egos and although a few have a penchant for getting their tops off (guilty coaches), we never take ourselves too seriously!
Is CrossFit for me?
CrossFit is perfectly designed for anyone that:
- enjoys exercise but doesn't like the gym
- is bored or isn't seeing results with their usual gym routine
- is looking to improve performance in their sport
Am I too old to start?
We have seen a massive improvement in the quality of life of over 50's who participate in regular physical exercise, and CrossFit is the perfect prescription for this. Our coaches can scale any workout for anyone, enabling them to workout alongside all of our members and enjoy it! It's common to see different generations of the same family working out together, and reaping the benefits that CrossFit provides.
Am I fit enough to start CrossFit?
Many if our members began CrossFit in a completely untrained state, often with no gym experience, and scared about the supposedly intimidating nature of group classes. Fast forward a few weeks, and they are a part of a supportive and fun community that genuinely care for each member.
