At CrossFit Richmond we recognize that individuals are drawn to fitness programs or sports that are fun, challenging and competitive. The reality is that most Melbourne gyms cannot provide this environment, resulting in inconsistent training habits that ultimately do not yield results.

The CrossFit Richmond Community

The sense of community amongst our clients is something we are particularly proud of. Many people actually rate this as the main reason they love CrossFit, the training being a bonus of the social interaction and friendships.

Is CrossFit a sport, or a fitness regime?

It is both.

CrossFit as a sport is simple; the only way to win is to do more work faster. However, not everybody at a CrossFit session is competing, many are simply enjoying the variety of the workouts and the physical fitness and fat-loss results it delivers. To some, the clock provides a measurement of how well they are improving from week to week and month to month, and to others it is a measurement of how well they completed a CrossFit WOD as a sport.

A CrossFit athlete is functionally strong, fast, flexible, and is at the top of the food chain when it comes to athletic competence. When CrossFit Richmond talks about its “athletes” it refers to all of its members. At any CrossFit affiliated club throughout the world, you are certain to meet amazing athletes, but the majority of people are everyday people who have found a sport and community they enjoy being a part of.

At Crossfit Richmond we’re passionate about human performance. We want your body to move and perform as well as is possible. The CrossFit method is at its core a General Physical Preparedness (GPP) system. We also tailor Specific Physical Preparedness (SPP) systems for specialized athletes.
