What is CrossFit?
The best place to start is the video we have linked to here then drop in for a Free Taster on a Saturday at 11.00am, if you like what you see and feel ready to join our regular WODs, we’re happy for you to do so, alternatively we offer an On Ramp Course by appointment for a £40 fee. Following this intensive two hour course you will be ready to join our daily WODs. You are, of course, welcome to join our WODs straight away, however, our Coach may advise you to do an On Ramp Course if he feels you need the extra coaching to safely be able to take part.
Am I fit enough to do CrossFit?
Of course you are! People are often intimidated by CrossFit at first glance but there is no need to be. The beauty of CrossFit is that everything we do is scalable and can be adapted to where you are personally, literally anyone can do CrossFit as long as the coaching and programming is good enough….which we are pleased to say it is here!
Where is CrossFit A14?
We are located just off the A14, in Newmarket, Suffolk, within easy reach of Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Mildenhall and Soham. Our address is: Unit 10 Minton Enterprise Park, Oaks Drive, Newmarket, Suffolk, CB8 7YY.
Do I need to join to take part in a WOD?
No, we have a drop in fee of £9 and you can pay that, complete a quick form and then take part. We do, however, reserve the right to assess your ability and may advise that you take part in an On Ramp Course before doing another Drop In.
How many Free Taster sessions can I attend?
Free Tasters are intended to give newcomers a taste of CrossFit and let them see if it’s something they’d enjoy and benefit from doing regularly. With this in mind, we will limit people to a maximum of two Free Taster sessions (unless of course you’re a member, in which case you’re welcome to attend the Free Tasters. Just keep in mind that these are likely to be scaled back a little from our main WODs to make them more accessible to newcomers).
If we have a Buddy membership, do we need to come to CrossFit A14 together?
No, Buddy memberships act exactly the same as individual memberships in every respect apart from the fact that two memberships are paid for at once. Because two people sign up together, we are able to offer Buddy membership at a cheaper rate.
Why are your supplements more expensive than some brands?
Like with so many things, you get what you pay for. Our ProAnox supplements are more expensive than some because they’re better and therefore cost us more to buy in. We selected them over brands such as Pure Pharma, on which we could make a far greater profit margin, because we believe we have experienced better results using ProAnox supplements.
