Happy New Year

Well, we are having a nice relaxing entry into the New Year. The way the seminars are shaping up, it seems as if we will be basing ourselves very much at the East London Gymnastics Centre.

If you want sessions or lessons further into London you need to find venues that have olympic lifting kit, ropes, bars, foam pits and tumble tracks, along with a management that does not insist that everyone joins on a monthly basis.

The focus of Crossfit London is to primarily teach you the moves and facilitating people getting together and training. we will probably set up a forum or contact page on one of our allied websites.

However we will be able to offer limited access to Crossfit Certified Personal Trainers , but there are only four in the country (2 in London). So we are also developing a list of personal trainers who understand Crossfit methodology but who have not yet been to the states to be certified. If you are interested in training with a personal trainer drop me an email.
