WHAT WE DO
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program. We have designed our program to elicit the broadest adaptation response possible. CrossFit is not a specialised fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimise physical competence in each of ten recognised fitness domains.
Working one on one with an experienced and dedicated coach will help you reach goals and improve in areas of weakness. Personal training has proved to be so effective that it has become a popular service amongst our athletes. With each personal training session, athletes are given individualised homework to be completed before the next personal training session.
Our Nutrition Coaching program is designed to provide individuals with an easy, science-based approach to nutrition and wellness, using simple behaviour modification strategies to create positive change without the stress of “dieting”.
ABOUT CROSSFIT WAIMAKARIRI
CrossFit Waimakariri was started in a two car garage after the Christchurch earthquakes, as a place to unwind from the daily stress and to bring others together to help each other through.
Today we still maintain this as our primary goal. A win for us is when our clients leave the gym happier than when they arrived. Health and fitness are a fantastic by-product of doing something physical that you can enjoy around people who just want to see you at your best.
At CrossFit Waimakariri we take pride in our ability to provide top quality, professional coaching by people that care about you and want to see you achieve. Whether that is through CrossFit, private training or nutrition consultation.
We are here to help you get to the best version of you.

WHEN YOU’RE READY…
Do you have to be fit to do CrossFit?
Absolutely not, anyone can start CrossFit. “The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind” – Greg Glassman. CrossFit is designed go be infinitely scalable, so no matter you’re stating fitness level we can accommodate.
Do I need a contract?
Nope. We don’t really like contracts.We want you to come in and give it try and see if it’s for you. Contracts just make that decision harder.
Do you have discounts?
No. We don’t discount, we don’t grandfather, we don’t do special rates, reduced rates, group rates or use any other marketing trick to con you in to joining up.We also don’t do contracts, tie-in’s or minimum length terms. If you don’t want to be here, we don’t want to try to force you to stay because we relay on our programming, coaching and your enjoyment to bring you back time after time.
Is CrossFit dangerous?
Doing stupid things is dangerous, crossing the road is dangerous, getting out of bed some days is dangerous, on other days staying in bed is dangerous. Danger is about context. Poor coaching, a big ego and high intensity when you are not ready for it are all dangerous. Which is why we run a tight ship at CrossFit Waimakariri, we only provide high quality coaching from knowledgeable coaches. We make sure you check you’re ego at the door and we introduce intensity only when you are ready.
Will I get bulky lifting weights?
No. Weights don’t make people bulky, testosterone does.
