CrossFit North London

CrossFit Training in North london

CrossFit North London is a one of the largest CrossFit centres (Boxes) in London and focuses on group strength and conditioning sessions.

Each 1 hour coached session is designed to be suitable for everyone of all abilities from people wanting to lose weight and tone up, kids training,  post natal mums to 60+ clients and athletes. The coached sessions can be scaled (reduced or increased for your level of ability).

Unlike other classes, you warm up and practice a skill (working on technique of a particular movement or exercise), loosen tight or tense muscles with mobility work. Then you will have an intense WOD (workout of the day) lasting from anything from 5min to 30min and can include; weights, gymnastics and cardio. Finally you can work on some drills and cool down. This structure means it resembles a personal training session with specific focus on correcting your weaknesses, tightnesses and imbalances. The small group element of CrossFit North London means you pay less than a 1-2-1 personal training session and can do it more often. The variety means you will never be bored and will never need to go to the gym to train on a boring crosstrainer ever again!
“The sport of fitness has arrived”

What is CrossFit?

Work Out of The Day

The WOD is constantly varied, functional movements (movement that will make you stronger for everyday life and reduce the chance of injury)  performed at high intensity (relative to your ability and fitness level). All workouts are measured so it’s easy to monitor your improvement.

CrossFit is not a quick fix! CrossFit is a way of life. Sounds a bit corny I know, but we want you to see it as a long term, fitness, strengthening solution to the conventional gyms. The workouts are working on fitness, posture, strength and at the same time are fun, challenging, constantly varied and very addictive.

Some of the skills take time to learn, but improvements are noticed quickly. Never again will you join in January and stop going by March, you will look forward to going to every session as the element of surprise and new challenges will keep you motivated all year round.

Method

Peel and finely slice the shallots, garlic and ginger. Trim and finely slice the chilli. Cut the fish into chunks.

Heat a lug of groundnut oil in a large pan, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves and cook until the seeds start to pop.

Add the shallot, garlic, ginger and chilli, and cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes, until softened.

Mix together the chilli powder and turmeric with a splash of water, and stir into the pan. Fry for a minute, then add the fish, coconut milk and tomatoes.

Season, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and the sauce has reduced.

Pick, chop and scatter over the coriander leaves, then serve with basmati rice and warm naan bread (or gluten free naan).
