What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is an intense and awesome core strength and conditioning program based on constantly varied, high intensity functional movement. It isn’t a specialised fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. It delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.
We have been involved in helping people with their fitness goals for many years and, with that experience, we recognise that each individual is at a very different place on their fitness journey. For some, exercise may have been in their past and today is the day that they have made the decision to improve their quality of life by getting fit. For others, it is about being challenged and pushed far beyond what they ever thought they were capable of.
Redemption Bootcamp – perfect if you are starting on your fitness journey. During the 5 weeks (10 sessions) you will be improving your metabolic conditioning and addressing nutritional issues. Check out the programme details on the Redemption Bootcamp page.
Military Fit – a step up from Redemption Bootcamp. Increasing your strength, speed and power based on bodyweight exercises these classes add Gymnastics (ring work, hand stand push ups etc) into the 45 minute sessions.
Alpha – these are 1 hour long specialized group training sessions for individuals who want to include weightlifting into the existing programme of gymnastics and metabolic conditioning and who are driven to take their fitness to an elite level. The wider CrossFit community holds a number of national (and international competitions) and we support members who want to compete.
You can be at either Military Fit or Alpha level within the same class - before moving into the Alpha level an assessment is carried out for each individual to ensure you have the required level of technique to be able to perform the workouts safely. Talk to us about which session would be best for you as some are more focused towards Alpha level athletes than others.
We hold monthly workshops in Basic Barbell techniques and bimonthly workshops in Gymnastic skills and Kettlebell which are mandatory before progressing into the Alpha level.
Within each CrossFit class we cater for individual members' ability, level of fitness and experience by scaling the load, requirements and intensity.
We also run a Saturday morning Barbell class for those members who have completed the Basic Barbell workshop - this is a dedicated lifting session and a great opportunity to work on technique and progressing with heavier weights.
Our athletes are trained to perform at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges. This fitness is demanded of military and police personnel, firefighters, and many sports requiring total or complete physical prowess. CrossFit has proven effective in these arenas.
CrossFit Power Station offers morning and evening classes at each of the 3 levels. We also have separate Next Generation classes for youths aged 8 – 16 years.

Make no mistake, the effort required is huge – but so are the results!!
