Welcome to CrossFit bournemouth
“I can’t do that!” “You guys are crazy!” “CrossFit is too intense!” We get it… CrossFit looks intimidating from the outside and usually sends people running. We are afraid of what we don’t know. It’s human nature to fear the unknown. But, think about any moment in time where you accomplished a task that made you feel great - was it challenging? Did it pull you out of your comfort zone and push you to be better? Sure it did! Why? Because most things that are worth doing require a level of virtuosity, energy, and commitment. CrossFit will prepare you for any task that life demands, both physically and mentally. It will make you stronger and more confident in all facets of life. Don’t believe it? We dare you to try…

Disco drove out of the convoy in his 4×4 to block the suicide bomber and to protect a company boss who was travelling in a vehicle in front of him.
He rammed into the suicide bomber’s vehicle at high speed, smashing into it before coming off the road and rolling over six times.
The incident, on December 20, 2007, left Disco with a brain haemorrhage and a broken back.
He is now unable to work because of memory problems caused by his brain injury and is also suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
A year ago, the 36-year-old, who lives in Ashwood, Kearsley, was unable to run more than mile, but next month he will take part in Tough Mudder, a gruelling 12-mile obstacle course in Malpas, Cheshire, in memory of his niece, Maddie Rose Gooch.

Rest Days & Half-Intensity WeeksCrossFit is addicting. We know. It's fun, and it gets results. But sometimes you need a break. Our workouts are much different than the traditional training methods. The level of intensity we maintain makes it even more important to make sure we're giving ourselves a break when we need it.
Rest days are your weekly days to focus on recovery. At a minimum, you need to take at least one day a week completely off. Two would probably be better. And depending on the week, you may benefit more from three. There's no 'one size fits all' answer. Age, the amount of quality sleep you get, your diet, and many other factors affect how often you should take a rest day. Usually, younger folks can train 5 to 6 days a week, while the older crowd might be better off training 2 or 3 times a week.
We usually recommend training no more than three days in a row before taking a day off. We have found that the fourth day sacrifices some intensity, which makes the workout less effective. It is usually better to take a rest day and come back even stronger and ready to go the day after.
Experiment with different schedules and see where you do best. You can see great improvements from a Tuesday/Thursday schedule in the beginning. Many people continue to see huge gains from training Monday/Wednesday/Friday. For some, three days a week is the ideal schedule. For others, once you have been doing high intensity training for some time, adding a fourth and even fifth day can help you reach your goals faster. But this is all completely dependent on you, your schedule, and how much effort you take towards helping your body recover. If you neglect rest and recovery, training six days a week can do more harm than good.
- The 23 hours of the day you are not at the gym can have an enormous impact on what happens during the short time you are there. Everything that is not training is recovery and there are a few basic recovery tools that can have a major impact on your training.
- How did you feel when you woke up? If you were sluggish, more tired than usual, your heart rate was much higher than normal, or you felt mentally exhausted, take the day off.
- Are you seeing the first stages of a nagging injury? You may not be getting the rest days you need.
Every so often, your body needs a bigger break than just one day. Some suggest taking a half-intensity week every four weeks, but this isn't an excuse to get lazy. Look at your calendar and track the days you work out. Most of you will find that a vacation, sick kids, or a busy schedule kept you from the gym for a few days during the month. But if you look at your calendar and you haven't missed one of your regularly scheduled workouts in over a month, you'll want to consider taking a half-intensity week. This means reducing the volume and intensity of your workouts for 3-5 days.
