What is CrossFit?

The CrossFit methodology utilizes functional movements, such as: pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting and running which are executed at high intensity.  It means that at CrossFit Ballina you will not find rows of stationary bikes, treadmills, and weight machines. Instead you will find pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells and wide open space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing – moving your body the way it is meant to be moved. It means that all your workouts will be comprised of exercises that mimic movements performed in day-to-day life or sport. We focus on improving functional movements that are necessary and common in your daily activities.

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes. The CrossFit program is designed to be scaled to the needs of any committed individual regardless of age or experience. When the clock starts, we all work together, but our loads, reps and intensity may differ depending on your needs and fitness level. The basic functional movements of elite level athletes and the elderly differ only by degree not kind.  CrossFit programs are designed to provide the highest level of fitness to everyone ranging from highly trained operation units to the stay at home parents.

It also means that you will never get bored. With our constantly varied programming you will rarely do the same workout twice in any given year. You will never have to program your own workouts or spend hours in the gym. Instead, each day a workout will be provided for you that is scalable to suit your fitness level. And because our workouts are rarely longer than 40 minutes they can fit into even the busiest schedules.

Our fitness programming aims to improve your capacity in ten recognized fitness domains which include; cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. The result is comprehensive physical fitness and restored vitality.
