Another year older, another year stronger. Yup, 3 is a great number and we reckon there will be many more of this. Below is a video compilation of our members who helped us celebrate it.

How CrossFit burns Calories for Fat loss

We have all heard the term burning calories and how you need to burn calories to drop weight and body fat. Yes all of that is true, but by only using the most effective methods.

Participants are required to complete a workout, that may consist of heavy weights combined with up to a few more exercises, as quick as possible (safely) and this creates a physiological reaction that is optimal for calorie consumption. Once you have completed your workout, and if met the workout criteria, your...

Post Workout Recovery – Supplements

We continue with our second important post workout recovery aid which are supplements. A reminder that all 4 elements (nutrition, supplements, rest and mindset) need to come in play together for our recovery to be maximized.   2. SUPPLEMENTS After an intense session, you feel sore and tired. Both body and mind feel tired. To help counteract the injuries and burn out that may occur from over training especially if you are new to that type of exercise, you need to implement some solid nutritional strategies to help you recover faster, reduce inflammation, prevent damage to your tissues, improve...

There are those who want to gain weight, those who want to lose weight, those whose training demands may be greater than others, genetics, age and so forth. However if you are not implementing any of those guidelines and need help to start, the...

Make sure to...
