CrossFit is an incredible community approach to fitness, with members of all shapes and fitness capabilities benefiting from its effective progressive training in a small class environment. CrossFit classes include exercises which include all elements of fitness: cardio (HIIT, rowing, running, jumping), strength work (olympic weight lifting, kettlebells, body weight movements), gymnastics skills (handstands, pull ups, muscle ups) and a lot of fun. Whilst many people like to compete, all the workouts are scaled for your capabilities which is what makes it inclusive and fun with all sizes, fitness levels and ages able to participate and get fit.
At CrossFit Skirmish membership we offer 34 WODs per week (136 per month), Olympic Weight Lifting Club, CrossFit Lite, Gymnastics, Rowing and Mobility training too.
CrossFit is different every day, it is also progressive, so if you are new to CrossFit, we have CrossFit Lite classes which are less technical but work you to the max, improving your fitness and giving you the support and good technique required to progress into mainstream classes. We also run Olympic Weightlifting for beginners – smaller classes where we focus on developing your skills safely, at your own pace. New for 2017 are ‘mobility’ classes, critical to improve your general flexibility and your lifting capability.
We are very different at CrossFit Skirmish – whilst we embrace the tough training heritage of traditional CrossFit gyms, we believe that everyone should get great coaching, good equipment and a hot shower as part of their membership. Indeed, we are the best equipped independent CrossFit operation in Scotland. We have two ‘boxes’ including a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning suite with a bespoke Rig and weight lifting platforms. We also have the full range of kit you would need to help you develop your skills including air bikes, GHDs and 20 ERGS (that’s rowing machines).
Our coaches come as part of your membership with excellent tuition and programming built in – so unlike other gyms where you pay for membership and personal training – at CrossFit Skirmish, you get ALL COACHING in one monthly fee.
Our Head Trainer Sasha Voronov is a ‘competitive’ CrossFitter (ex MMA fighter and Judo coach too), who has ranked high in the CrossFit Open which is why he and his team know how to develop your skills. Most importantly, we have an amazing community of folks who will support you every step of the way in your fitness journey – join us.
