CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.

Focus on progress - not perfection.
Whether it’s to lose weight, gain muscle, get fitter or improve how you feel about yourself. CrossFit programming can help you. Identify what your goals are. Be Specific. Speak to our coaches. Tell a loved one. Make it measurable. Surround yourself with people that will help you achieve your goals. Smash your goals. ENJOY. Repeat.

Love CrossFit, my PT clients & the community at Bearwalden Gym. I used to race motorbikes and fall off a lot. I also love to cook and drink the occasional beer.

Love the facility at Bearwalden that offers my PT clients so much. I found CrossFit around 3 years ago while searching for new and exciting ways to get fit and test myself. I couldn't find a local CrossFit box to train in so I built my own gym at home.
