Despite their differences everyone shares one common goal – to improve their own fitness and live a healthy life. Each daily workout is new, fun and more importantly it’s scaleable to any level of fitness.

Everyone is welcome at AFS and anyone can be a part of our fitness community.

GET FITTER, TOGETHER.

CrossFit differs greatly to a normal gym, we exercise as a team and the entire class is coached by a qualified trainer – think of personal training in a small and focused group. We always start with a warmup which is designed to get our bodies ready for the workout ahead. Then comes the Workout of the Day (WOD), this is written on a whiteboard, explained and adapted to suit each athletes capabilities. Then the hard work happens.

THERE ARE TEN COMPONENTS OF FITNESS

There are ten recognized general physical skills, and they are all practiced regularly with CrossFit. You are as fit as your competency in each of these ten skills.

1. CARDIO

The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

2. STAMINA

The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

3. STRENGTH

The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.

4. FLEXIBILITY

The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.

5. POWER

The ability of a muscular unit(s) to apply maximum force in minimum time.

6. SPEED

The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.

7. COORDINATION

The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular movement.

8. AGILITY

The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.

9. BALANCE

 The ability to control the placement of the body’s center of gravity in relation to its support base.

10. ACCURACY

The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.

Improvements in endurance, stamina, strength, and flexibility come about through training. Training refers to activity that improves performance through a measurable organic change in the body. (1 – 4). By contrast improvements in coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy come about through practice. Practice refers to activity that improves performance through changes in the nervous system. (7 – 10). Power and speed are adaptations of both training AND practice (5 & 6).
