CROSSFIT BARBARIC ‘FORGING ELITE FITNESS'

Three years in and CrossFit Barbaric is going from strength to strength. Membership has grown substantially and that growth continues as CrossFit as a sport becomes increasingly popular across the globe.

Crossfit Barbaric

CrossFit is functional training at its best, it’s a great combination of movements that incorporates the whole body to a high level of intensity. When CrossFitters train, they train in ‘The Box’ using a whole host of exercises and pitting themselves against their own bodyweight as well as a range of equipment from barbells to medicine balls.

It's not a gym

Let’s get this straight - it’s not a gym in the traditional sense. Working against the mundane routine the same exercise regime can produce, CrossFit keeps the mind engaged and the body challenged, it produces an energy and excitement that routine workouts extinguish. “Routine is the enemy” says Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder. Using diversity to dispel routine, CrossFit keeps the mind and body guessing. Yes, it’s extremely physical, but it’s also fun, dynamic and fluid.

Aiming high

Functional training - as with all exercise - needs to be done correctly. If you can master the moves and use good form, there is no limit to what you can do. Ben, age 16, is currently training to reach CrossFit Games standards - if successful he will be the youngest individual ever to achieve this. Watch this space for 2020!

Everyone's invited

CrossFit is not just for the elite athlete, it’s for everyone. Whatever your age or fitness level, you’re invited - a surefire way to rocket you into health, fitness and a supportive community that will spur you on to great achievements. There’s also a junior section ‘Barbaric Kids’ dedicated to getting the younger generation into exercise and a habit that will hopefully last a lifetime. Classes are divided by age: 4-8 year olds and 9-13 year olds, these classes are, as the strapline says ‘forging future barbarians.’

Community atmosphere

Working out together produces camaraderie and solidarity. Friendships are made as like-minded people come together to achieve similar aims and support each other to maintain a positive mindset and attain set goals. What’s more, this support spills over into the wider community; so far, £6,500 has been raised for the charity Mind through group challenges that are set throughout the year.

Wellbeing

Overall wellbeing doesn’t just mean physical fitness. It can also incorporate the right personal attitude as well as that feeling of inclusion that a great community atmosphere can produce. Achieving your goals - whatever they are, having a positive outlook, giving your body what it needs nutritionally, and being part of that supportive community are, for CrossFit Barbaric, what wellbeing is all about.

CrossFit Barbaric is located at Unit 4A, Tokenspire Business Park, Beverley, HU17 0TB. Open Monday to Friday 5.30am-8pm and Sat: 8am-12pm. Mobile: 07980 100569. Website: www.crossfitbarbaric.com
