Classes

CrossFit

Our CrossFit Classes are one hour long group sessions designed to get you in the best shape of your life. Each class is coached by at least one of our qualified instructors and involves a group warm up, strength or skill development work and a WOD (Workout Of the Day). The WOD is a high intensity workout using a mix of functional movements and lasting anything from 5 to 25 minutes. Everyone in the class trains together and your exercises and weights are scaled based on your current ability in order to give you a challenging and rewarding workout. We encourage everyone to record their progress so over time they can see the vast improvements in their fitness, strength and body composition.

 

Taster Session

Designed for non-members who are thinking about getting started with us and want to learn more about CrossFit and our training. Your free CrossFit Leeds Taster Session gives you the opportunity to come and look around the gym, spend dedicated time with a coach, try a CrossFit WOD (Workout Of the Day) that is scaled to your ability, and ask any questions you may have. You'll be participating alongside others who are new to CrossFit. By the end of the session you'll have a good appreciation of what our CrossFit classes involve and how you can benefit from our training so you can make a more informed decision on whether CrossFit is for you. Sessions alternate between Meanwood and The Forge on Thursday evenings at 8pm. A full list of dates and registration is available on our Getting Started page.

 

Fast Class

A 30 minute class at 6am every weekday, providing a fun and fast paced intense training session utilising interval protocols and exercises that will burn calories, develop fitness and improve physique. Classes include a short warm up and your Metabolic Conditioning workout that is perfect for those wanting to get a good sweat on in a relaxed atmosphere and boost your metabolism for the rest of the day. If you're short on time on looking to get that extra bit of training in, our Fast Classes are worth getting out of bed for!

 

Hill Sprints

A challenging running session suitable for all abilities held at Roundhay Park every Sunday morning at 9am. Hill Sprints provide an excellent way of improving anaerobic fitness, developing running mechanics, increasing your mental toughness and are a superb way of burning calories and increasing metabolism. The session lasts around 45 minutes and is followed up with an optional, well earned social breakfast at Banyan, Roundhay on Street Lane. Don't forget your CrossFit Leeds membership card for a discounted breakfast!

 

Sunday Social

A tough WOD in a relaxed atmosphere to get stuck into late on a Sunday morning. We mix up the coaches that take this session each week and they will programme their choice of WOD (which may be influenced by our members). Think Hero WODs, Benchmark Mash Ups. Generally tough, character builder type stuff!!! Coaches will join in with the members on this class and the session will be followed up with a post-WOD food somewhere local. Usual scaling options are available and all abilities and experience levels are welcome.

 

Open Gym

If you have completed our Fundamentals course you can come and use the facilities for your own training during the Open Gym sessions. We understand that everyone has their own personal goals and so our Open Gym sessions are available to supplement your class training with some other specific work. The Open Gym sessions are commonly used for catching up on class workouts that have been missed, practising new techniques learned in the classes, organising your own workouts with friends, improving mobility, and developing strength. These are uncoached sessions but there will always be a qualified coach present.

 

 

Speciality Classes

CrossFit Members receive free access to all of our Speciality classes. We generally recommend members have a minimum of 3-6 months of regular CrossFit training under their belt before looking to add any speciality classes into their training routine.

 

Barbell Club

CrossFit Leeds Barbell Club was set up to meet the increasing demands by individuals to get more focussed coaching time and quality programming on their Weightlifting.

Weightlifting is an Olympic sport consisting of the two barbell lifts, Snatch and Clean & Jerk, which are the ultimate test of explosive power and technical proficiency. Our classes are technique orientated, and will cover the two main lifts and their variations, including assistance movements and plenty of heavy squatting and pulling. The sessions will develop your proficiency in Olympic Weightlifting as well as improving your all round strength, speed and power. These classes also provide a great addition for anyone looking to improve their competitive CrossFit.

We are a British Weight Lifting affiliated gym and all of our Barbell Club Coaches are British Weight Lifting qualified. Our Head Coach is BWL Level 2 coach Sam Wild who has a wealth of Weightlifting coaching experience and an enormous amount of passion for the sport. Sam is responsible for the Barbell Club programme, many of the coached classes and the overall structure of the Barbell Club sessions.

 

Strength

For those that are looking to further increase their all round strength or muscle mass these classes provide a progressive programme that is designed to work alongside our CrossFit classes to promote continuous strength gains even for the more experienced athlete. The classes focus primarily on the big compound lifts including squats, deadlifts, presses and rows as well as heavy carries, pushes and pulls which all utilise large muscle groups and multiple joints to allow maximal loads to be moved. You will also perform a range of accessory exercises using a wide range of strength training equipment to develop more specific areas of strength, offset muscular imbalances, and bullet-proof your body from injury.

 

Gymnastics

Our specialist gymnastics classes focus on development of the strength, flexibility and skill required to master a wide range of body weight exercises. Programmed by our Head Gymnastics Coach Alex Heslop, these sessions will provide you with appropriate coaching, skills and drills to develop technical mastery in your gymnastics. Each class is an hour long and provides skill development on a specific movement as well as gymnastics conditioning to improve your strength and positions. You can expect to work on a range of movements including Handstand variations, Rope Climbs, Muscle Ups and other Ring Skills, Pull Ups and a lot of midline strengthening. Your development in the gymnastics classes will transfer across to all your other fitness endeavours.

 

Endurance

Programmed by our Head Endurance Coach Lucy Hack, our Endurance Classes will take your cardiovascular fitness and muscular endurance to the next level. If you're looking to build your engine and improve performance in longer events such as 10Ks, triathlons or Obstacle Course Races these classes are perfect for you. They're also a great way to shift body fat or simply build an unstoppable engine to complement your CrossFit training. The classes are largely centred around a strong mix of Running, Rowing, Assault Bike and Ski-Erg utilising longer duration training as well as faster paced intervals. You can also expect body weight strength exercises such as pull ups, press ups and core work as well as non-technical resistance based exercises all thrown in the mix to help build the muscular endurance and mental strength to allow your body to keep pushing through the toughest of workouts or tests of fitness.

 

Row WOD

Turn the music up and get strapped in for a 45 minute class that will take you through warm up and stroke development before a main course of Rowing Intervals utilising varying durations, distances and intensities. Think spin class on the Concept2 Rower! Superb workout for improving cardiovascular fitness, power development and Rowing technique.

 

Competition Training

Our Competition Training sessions are designed for those people wanting to take part in the competitive sport of CrossFit. At CrossFit Leeds we have a strong history of high performance in CrossFit competitions and our dedicated coaching is continuing to develop athletes to a standard above and beyond our competition. These sessions are intended for members with a minimum of 6 months CrossFit training, have a good foundation level of strength, and are competent with basic competition movements such as Kipping Pull Ups and Olympic Lifting.

If you're unsure whether these sessions are appropriate for you, please speak to a coach who will be able to assist. If you're not currently at the required level of competency for these classes and want to get involved in competitions we are happy to help advise you on what you need to work on to get to that point.

 

Kettlebells

Classes consist of a variety of kettlebell and body weight movements and techniques aimed at building your strength and muscular endurance. The basic kettlebell movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once and help to build functional strength predominantly in the legs, shoulders and lower back. You will also be coached through movements such as the Turkish Get Up, Windmills and Farmers Walk which are excellent for developing strength and stability in the shoulders and hips.
