New location: New Name: Same great training!

In the very near future, CrossFit GU1 will be moving to its brand new location between Guildford and Aldershot. In conjunction with this we will be changing names to CrossFit Optimus and will be launching a brand new web site. Keep an eye on this site for more details about the launch.

At the new box you can expect the same great training with shiny new equipment, ranging from purpose built pull-up bars to C2 rowers and a GHD.

This is a very exciting time for us and look forward to sharing fitness with you all.

CrossFit Works

Need proof CrossFit works?

Last night we had a benchmark strength session to see how the guys were doing.

Chris got a personal best on Squat, Press and Deadlift. All this while losing 10 kilos of extra weight around his body.

Jonathan likewise hit personal bests on the three lifts, smashing his previous Deadlift personal best by 30 kilos!

Lea is now deadlifting over 150 Kilograms for sets of three. When he came to us at the start of the year he was dealing with a debilitating hip injury that meant he could barely lift the bar without pain. After some rehab work at GU1 he is now performing at close to 100% and rarely has any pain.

CrossFit works. It has worked for these guys and it will work for you. No matter your goals - strength, body composition, rehabilitation or sporting performance - we can get you to where you want to be.
