About Crossfit

Let us tell you about CrossFit, and CrossFit Iceni in Colchester.

What is CrossFit……?

The answer is quite simple, it’s constantly varied, functional movement!


But what is functional movement……?

Functional movement involves real world situations, a great example of this is to perform an exercise called a squat, which represents standing up, how else could you get off the toilet….??? Or an exercise called a Deadlift, how else would you pick this week’s grocery shopping up….???

CrossFit is a full body conditioning programme for any age & ability, the workouts are scalable to suit each individual and their own personal goals, the CrossFit community brings together a wide range of people from beginners who are new to fitness and the elite athletes who are looking for a new challenge both body and mind. CrossFit challenges the body in all areas using as many different and unique exercises and movements as possible.

Our aim is to adapt and develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries.

What can you expect to gain from taking part in CrossFit workouts?

  • Increased energy levels!
  • Improved sleep!
  • Reduction in body fat!
  • Toned and shaped body!
  • Faster in both reactions & movement!
  • Look, move and feel better in every way!

i.e. Activities that once were difficult now become easier and more comfortable to complete.

CrossFit foundations are built around targeting key fitness areas such as:

Cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, co-ordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

The aim is to prepare YOU to deal with life’s challenges i.e. the unknown or unknowable!!!

Our workouts are constantly varied and therefore you will never do two days the same, two weeks the same or two months the same. This keeps things interesting and increases the impact of each workout.

The key to CrossFit’s success is due to not allowing the body get used to the type of activity/training/movement you are regularly performing (keeping the body guessing) therefore by using functional compound movements, which are performed at high intensity and are constantly varied in their duration, movements and repetitions, this allows your body to keep adapting and therefore continue getting you RESULTS long term!!!

Every CrossFit routine is timed or measured to monitor YOUR progression!!!

Crossfit Iceni is in one word AMAZING from the Main workouts and personal training sessions to the atmosphere and the coaches, I just can\'t say where this box needs improving i am the sort of person that goes in and out of different fitness phases and normally after a few weeks I give up but not at Iceni!!! All day I think about training there and seeing the awesome people at the box and testing myself every day! I feel great and better than ever and Crossfit Iceni can take all the credit for that I would recommend this box to everyone I meet.
