About Iceni

About ICENI.

The Iceni were a tribe of British Celts living in the area of modern Norfolk and north-west Suffolk.

In 61 AD the Roman officials decided to interpret the Iceni kings will as a submission to the Roman state, so they moved to appropriate all of the Iceni lands and disarm the tribe. Not surprisingly, the Iceni Kings widow, Boudicca (or Boadicea as she is sometimes known) protested. The Romans had her publicly flogged and her two daughters were raped. This high handed treatment of an ostensible ally had predictable results. In 61 AD Boudicca raised the Iceni and the neighbouring Trinivantes tribe in revolt against Roman rule.

Boudica led her army south to attack Colchester. Confronted by Boudica’s army the townspeople fell back to the area of the Temple. After a two day siege the last defences were broken and and everyone inside was killed. Leaving Colchester a smouldering ruin, Boudica led her army to destroy Roman settlements at London and St Albans before being finally defeated.

The reason we used the name Iceni is because of the tribe and the great historical importance it has to Colchester.
We like the fact they stood up for themselves and worked hard to reach the goal they set themselves!

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.
