Welcome to CrossFit Rocks. We are not just a gym but a community of people committed to health and fitness.
CrossFit is defined as Constantly Varied, Functional Movements executed at High Intensity. This means that your workout is going to be different every day to ensure adaptations across all 10 general physical skills (Endurance, Strength, Stamina, Flexibility, Speed, Power, Co-ordination, Accuracy, Agility, Balance) not specialising in only one. Functional movements are what life demand you have capacity in, no machines, no mirrors, no isolation exercises, just “real world” movement patterns that are safe and produce powerful, strong, capable humans. Intensity is key. The training is hard and fast but can be scaled to suit any and all levels of fitness. Whether you are 6 years old or 60 years old, intensity is given in doses relative to the individuals physical and psychological tolerances.
By now you have probably heard of CrossFit through social media, newspaper or your friend, it is the fastest growing fitness program on the planet setting unprecedented growth records in the fitness industry. It is here to stay and is a fitness revolution changing the landscape of how people train. Perhaps you have even done a “CrossFit class” at a commercial gym who have attempted to imitate CrossFit. If this is you are being robbed of an experience, coming to train at CrossFit Rocks will be the best decision you will ever make. Don’t take our word for it, hear it from our members.
