Frequently Asked Questions
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is one of the most effective methods to improve your overall fitness, lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle. Each session is unique and is completely scalable using techniques from weightlifting, gymnastics and high intensity interval training (HIIT). The coaches at CrossFit Orwell guarantee you the most effective workout in Ipswich!
The workouts can be adapted for anyone and everyone. Don’t worry if you have never tried CrossFit before, or if you have never even exercised before, Darren and Kirsty customise each workout to suit your ability and experience. So, no matter what your age, ability or fitness level (from total beginner to experienced athlete), CrossFit Orwell will work for you and they even offer a CrossFit kids programme!
