Why Crossfit Fetish?

The coaches at CrossFit Fetish believe in helping others achieve their goals. People start strength and conditioning programs for varying reasons. It is their desire to assist people to achieve those goals, whether it to get stronger, lose weight or improve fitness and skills for a chosen sport. Even if it is just to meet people and embrace another social environment.

At CrossFit Fetish we provide personal training in a group setting. You will receive shared attention with 1-15 other members. This means that you can have a personal trainer at a price you can afford with some independence. Expect constant attention from your coach during skill and strength training and an extra push during your workout. In addition, you will receive information and education on mobility and nutrition.

1. Why does CrossFit work?crossfit in durban; crossfit durban; Crossfit gym durban; fitness;

CrossFit works because our brand of fitness advocates and develops a fitness that is deliberately broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.

We know from the real results with ourselves as coaches that more frequent, short, varied and intense workouts yield greater benefits and results. Coaches constantly vary load, distance, and speed in any given workout, and will mix up aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Sometimes workouts focus on just strength or just speed or endurance, and sometimes it’s a combination of both.

Because of the focus on a variety of skills, our members see significant improvements in their body composition, work capacity, health markers (BP, Cholesterol, etc.), and their ability to perform tasks in sport and their daily lives. When CrossFit is embraced with consistency, success and results are inevitable!

2. What is a typical class at CrossFit Fetish like?

In our one-hour group sessions, members will be led by our coaches through multiple phases of exercise and recovery:

  • A general warm up to prepare the body for exercise
  • Mobility drills to improve and restore joint mobility and function;
  • Skill or strength based session to improve technique, power or speed
  • The Workout of the Day – which will be any combination of Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, powerlifting, running, rowing and more;
  • Post-workout recovery techniques to prepare you for the rest of your day and for your next workout.

In a typical WOD, we perform functional movements at a high intensity, giving you a comprehensive full-body workout. Each day is a different workout which will follow the CrossFit prescription of being constantly varied. The WOD can last between 5 minutes to 20 minutes on average utilising a variety of movements and skills. Some workouts are task priority(complete a certain amount of work as quickly as possible) done for time, others are time priority(complete a maximum number of reps in an allotted amount of time).

You will never be bored.

3. You are Joining a Community.

CrossFit Fetish aims to hold regular events, seminars, workshops and social activities so as to grow the ‘Fetish Family’ as well improve your knowledge and skills. The community will also extend beyond the walls of the box to other CrossFitters in Durban as well as the rest of our good country.

Expect your fitness level to change when you start CrossFit. Athletes will notice improvement in their skills. A runner might improve on strength, where as a lifter might improve on their stamina. And those who come in ‘deconditioned’ may find that after only a few weeks that they can do a push-up, pull-up or lift a barbell even if they’ve never done so before in their lives.crossfit in durban; crossfit durban; Crossfit gym durban; fitness;DSC_5705
