Crossfit Chichester Est 2013.
Crossfit Chichester was established in 2012 and opened February 1st 2013. Its inception was that of Archie Cunningham- Level 3 CrossFit Coach- a health and fitness advocate and renewable energy graduate who had a vision to bring the best of Crossfit to his home town. He and his wife Lydia have done just that. Since, he has trained thousands of clients and inspired many to go on to become coaches themselves. . Crossfit Chichester aims to be a by-word for quality and next level training.
We are a family friendly, supportive community that absolutely holds up traditional values and the sense of personal responsibilty. Our core values are those of inclusiveness and respect for others.
The goal is general physical preparedness.
Greg Glassman founded Crossfit in 2000 – his idea was to combine fitness disciplines and found how combining a variety of functional movements with high intensity had a profound result – a “greater work capacity across broad time and modal domains.” There are 10 markers for this – cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.
Women and Crossfit.
You’re no longer in the gym training alone – you’re supported by a coach and surrounded by fellow Crossfitters who all help and push each other – women have greater freedom now than ever to work with weights and be more aggressive in their training to create strong, shapely, healthy functional bodies that are built for ability.
Women are so predisposed to benefiting from this kind of training and it makes it an exciting part of the development of Crossfit.
