You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!

I Can’t
Posted On : May 20, 2016




“i can’t”

i hear these words sometimes far too often usually right before someone does exactly what they told me they couldn’t do.

A lot of the movements in CrossFit appear on face value to be pretty complex and sometime’s impossible. But like everything at CrossFit Iceni we break down all movements to their simplest form.

For example, no one is expected to be able to jump onto a 32” box jump the first time they walk into the gym. We break this down into simply jumping and landing something that we all did as children. With modern society and lifestyles we rarely perform this once daily movement.  Once we have got the basics sorted then we can progress onto the next stage of jumping onto plates only a few inches off the ground.

This is the same for everything at CrossFit Iceni. In CrossFit we call it virtuosity meaning getting the basics right first. keeping things simple as we believe simple is the most effective way of progressing.

We don’t expect anyone by any means to be able to walk into to gym and be amazing at all movements this take time. All that we do ask is that you are willing to try and give every session 100%. and never say “i can’t”

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.
