CrossFit is a functional, strength and conditioning programme focussing on the 10 major aspects of physical fitness. Strength, speed, stamina, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, power, cardiovascular endurance, agility and accuracy.
It is the principle training programme for many elite professional athletes, champion fighters, Olympians and military Special Forces. However, it is designed to be completely scalable, meaning it can be tailored and applied to any committed individual regardless of fitness or experience.
The fitness needs of Olympic athletes and house wives differ in level, not kind!
This means the same routines can be used for a grandmother to a cage fighter, we change the load and intensity, we don’t change the programme!
We will train you using functional movements such as deadlifts, snatches, and squats, gymnastic movements including pull ups, dips, handstands and rope climbs, combined with running, rowing and skipping.
Our workouts are short, constantly varied, and performed at high intensity.
A typical one hour class will usually include a warm up, a strength section, a skill section, and then a WOD (workout of the day) which on average lasts around 15 minutes, finishing off with a stretch and cool down.
If you are new to CrossFit and functional weight training then you will need to complete our short foundation course. This comprises of two sessions both two hours long where we teach you all the basic CrossFit movements so that you can join in with the normal CrossFit classes safely and perform better.

What we do
At CrossFit Coventry we are unlike any typical gym. We don’t have rows of stationary bikes and resistance machines. Instead you will find pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells, gymnastic rings and a wide open space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing – moving your body the way it is meant to be moved. It means that all your workouts will be comprised of exercises that mimic movements performed in day-to-day life and sports.
We don’t have the unsociable awkward atmosphere of a typical gym – instead you will find a friendly, welcoming environment where after your first session you will know everyone’s name and want to keep coming back again and again, not just to improve your fitness, but for the social aspect of the gym. Our goal is to build a strong community, with regular social events, team workouts and competitions where we all encourage each other and keep each other motivated to achieve our fitness goals.
As well as the scheduled CrossFit classes we also provide yoga, nutrition advice, and various instructional workshops including Kettlebell training, rope climbing, gymnastics and Olympic lifting.
We also have open gym slots every day allowing you to come and train however you like, if you already have a training regime you want to stick to, or simply work on a specific area or weakness.
We can also provide training for sports teams, for example, a pre-season S&C programme for a rugby or football team, as well as personal training sessions for individuals and small groups.
