About CrossFit Optimus

CrossFit Optimus is a CrossFit Affiliated gymnasium located in Aldershot. We specialise in one to one and small group functional fitness classes utilizing a mix of basic gymnastic movement, Olympic weightlifting and other fitness modalities in constantly varied combinations to elicit the best response from the human body.

The training is, by design, broad, general and inclusive; utilising functional movements to prepare the body to perform at its best. It is our belief that being functionally fit means that we can face whatever physical challenges life may throw at us, whenever it happens. The challenges a twenty year old may face only differ from those faced by a sixty year old by degree, not kind. Both will face falls (whether due to sport or an uneven pavement), both have to carry objects (shopping for example) and both will benefit from functional training.

CrossFit Optimus also offers Speed and Agility training to local sports teams, either on an ad-hoc or regular basis. Our qualified and experienced trainers have years of coaching experience and can design a sport specific program to get the best possible performance from your athletes.
