Return To The Gym
CrossFit on the surface can appear tough, but we believe it is for anybody. Our members range from 3 to 78 years of age. The beauty of CrossFit is that it is designed to enhance everyday life outside of the gym. Our classes are designed to enhance the health and fitness of all, regardless of fitness background, from the beginner, to the elite athlete.
We also offer specialist classes to focus on some of the more specific areas of CrossFit.
Devised by ex-gymnast Greg Glassman, CrossFit workouts look to challenge he entire body and its larger muscle groups, combining moves from gymnastics, HIIT, weights training and Olympic weightlifting (such as the snatch and the clean and jerk)
The key to CrossFit isn’t that it takes you hours to complete your workout, but to put in maximum effort in the shortest time possible to achieve the biggest improvement.
We want to get you into the classes running, so we offer three PT sessions, included in your first months membership to teach you the basics. From the foundational movements, methodology, as well as nutrition and recovery protocols that will help you be as self-sufficient and informed in your training as possible.
What is a WOD?
The “WOD” is the “workout of the day.” Each day a new WOD is posted at Crossfit Beowulf, and it’s part of a complete program designed to improve strength and conditioning. The Beowulf Crossfit program is characterized by three days of work before one day of rest, though athletes may alter this pattern. The WOD can be scaled (adjusted) to provide a suitable challenge for athletes at any level.
I haven’t been active for years, is CrossFit for me?
Yes, absolutely! CrossFit is completely scalable so every workout can be made more or less challenging, depending on your fitness level. This allows complete beginners to train with CrossFit veterans and still get an awesome workout.
To see progression, often the WOD (workout of the day) is timed. The only person you’re working against is yourself. This time will become your benchmark and should reduce each time you perform that same WOD.
I’ve never tried CrossFit before so can I join any of the coached sessions?
CrossFit is made up of many different movements that need to be practiced and performed under the watchful eye of a CrossFit coach to ensure you’ve got the correct technique.
All members new to CrossFit are offered 3 PT sessions included in the first month membership. You’ll learn the basic movements as well as the methodology you will be practising.
What is the Foundations course and how do I get sign up?
How many coached sessions can I attend each week?
As many as you want. We dont like to restrict how often you can attend the gym, and we have plenty of “Open Gym” session’s throughout the day too for you to practice what you are learning in classes. Speak to your coaches and they can advise how often you should be coming in. It can be tempting to do all the CrossFit, when you first start. The coaches can help guide you to ensure you get the most out of your training alongside solid recovery too.
How much does each membership cost?
Membership is £85 per month, with a minimum three month commitment. You can use the gym as much as you like.
When do coached sessions run?
CrossFit coached sessions run at different times throughout the day, 7 days a week. More information can be found on our class timetable, there are classes on in the morning, at lunchtime, during the evening and on the weekend too.
We also have coaches available in between classes during Open Gym to assist you with movements or workouts.
Can I drop in from another box? If so, how much?
If you are a visiting CrossFitter and would like to drop in we would love to accommodate you. It is £10 a drop in and you can book by purchasing a drop in ticket through the TeamUp site (see class bookings tab).
