Fitness First’s XFit classes
Everyone knows about CrossFit – largely because as the jokes go, people who do CrossFit can’t stop talking about it. So when Fitness First opened XFit, in Media City with the tag-line ‘an experience like no other’, I thought it’s worth talking about.
The 3-in-1 studio is a stand-alone fitness venue in Business Central Towers. It offers MMA classes, boxing, and XFit – I’m trying out the XFit Deep class, which I’m told is one of the most difficult ones.
Now I consider myself reasonably fit – so I was mildly confident when I arrived. Instructor, Collis quickly introduced himself seeing I was new, and explained the list on the board. The class changes every day in terms of the activities, the speed, the frequency. We are doing some pull ups, clean-and-press lifting, a bit of running and wall balls today. A mere 15 minutes into the class, I’m ready to vomit. I’m sweaty and exhausted, though Collis is checking on me every so often to make sure I’m okay, and my technique is correct.
I tried this class four days ago, and I’m still struggling to walk up stairs. But I’m going back for more tomorrow – so either I’m a masochist, or it’s just that good. firstname.lastname@example.org
