When Cape CrossFit contacted Health24's Fitness Editor, Amy Froneman, to try out their gym, she had no idea what she was in for. Six weeks later though, she's addicted.
CrossFit is what's known as 'performance based training' and is very different from mainstream gyms in many ways. The group classes which I have been attending are varied and you only know what's on the schedule when you get there. It could be anything from kettlebell training to olympic weightlifting and includes aspects from powerlifting, gymnastics, dummbbell and medicine ball training.
Right now I am half-way through the Fight Gone Bad Challenge - and don't be fooled, it really is as hectic as it sounds...
Read Fitness Ed's blog here to find out how it's going.
