What is CrossFit?
The best place to start is the video we have linked to here then drop in for a Free Taster – more details on attending one of these can be found below.
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.
Is there parking on site?
Yes there is parking on site but we offer two tiers of Membership – either with or without onsite car parking as space can be limited between 9am and 5pm. Outside those hours, there’s plenty of space. We also have an EV / Plug In Hybrid charging point where members can charge their electric vehicles. The first hour is free of charge to members you just need to download the Pod Point App and send us an email to info@CrossFitA14.co.uk from the address you have registered with them so we can add you to the Members’ tariff. If you don’t drive an EV or PHEV, please do not parking in front of the charging point!
Do I need to join to take part in a WOD?
No, we have a drop in fee of £10 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?
Your first session with us is free of charge and acts as a free taster session. We just ask that you create an account here on our website and book in via the WOD / Classes page. 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, therefore we limit people to one Free Taster a month and a maximum of two within a 12 month period. If you’ve never done CrossFit before, we advise a quieter session for your Free Taster – either 7am or 9.30am on any weekday, 6.30pm on a Thursday or Friday, or either of the Saturday or Sunday sessions.
Is CrossFit exercise to music?
No, we do not offer exercise to music based classes. Our WODs and Open Gym time do have background music to mask the grunting though!
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.
