CrossFit is super fun!
First of all, CrossFit is super fun. And super effective if you really want to get fit and strong. The workouts (a workout is called WOD = workout of the day) are a combination of strength training, gymnastics, weight lifting and cardio training. They are based on functional movements, so movements that you use in daily life. Think weightlifting, running, rowing, pull-ups, push-ups, jumping and rope climbing. For example, with push-ups you only use your body, but you also train with dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells, pull-up bars, gymnastic rings, ropes and even car tires .
CrossFit’s varied workouts not only train your muscle strength and endurance, but also your flexibility and coordination. That is why many top athletes do CrossFit workouts outside of their regular training schedule. CrossFit is also a great sport for the elderly who want to keep fit . After a short time you will feel a lot fitter and stronger! Moreover, you lose weight very quickly with CrossFit, because the workouts are so intensive.

What do the training sessions at CrossFit Flames XL Amsterdam look like?
One of the big differences with a regular gym is that you don’t train alone, but in a group. A group that supports and encourages you. Another big difference is that in a box (CrossFit gym) you are immediately part of a community. That means that you do not make up excuses not to exercise, but persevere and persevere.
The training sessions at CrossFit Flames XL Amsterdam last one hour. In it you first get a warm-up, then the technical part in which the movements are explained and practiced, and then the WOD follows. And it is different every day! The groups are small (maximum 14 people) and are always accompanied by a certified CrossFit coach. WODs are very intensive and afterwards you feel like a different person.
Can anyone do CrossFit?
Yes! From 5 to 100 years old . From trained athletes to people who have never played a sport. Train people of different levels in one group. How is that possible? Very simple: all exercises can be adapted to your level! And if, for example due to an injury, you cannot perform an exercise, the coaches will help you with another good alternative.
