Barbell Club Phase 11

Posted 16th October 2015 by Josh Schouten

In phase 11 of Barbell Club we are going for some Christmas PB’s. To mark progression throughout the year we will be looking at setting some new benchmarks for the new year and the last phase of the year which will run into late December where a lot of us will be preoccupied.

In weeks 1,2,3 we will be working on %’s and not to failure. This is to stimulate the CNS (central nervous system) for week 4 where we will be pushing those numbers into new, unseen territories to hunt some Pb’s and rewards for the hard work we have all put in.

Good luck.

Phase 11

Foundations – December

Posted 15th October 2015 by Josh Schouten



What is CrossFit Foundations?

CrossFit Foundations is a set of lessons designed to provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to participate in a CrossFit class at CrossFit Hackney (and any other CrossFit affiliate you might visit for that matter!).

The CrossFit Hackney Foundations programme is not part of your normal membership.  It has been designed to introduce members to the fundamental movements of CrossFit.  The aim is to take a small group of members through the fundamental movements.  The numbers in each class are kept to a minimum to allow for more individual assistance and hands on coaching.

Foundations is composed of 2 x 2 hour progressive lessons, taking place on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm and Saturday at 8am. You’ll be awarded a certificate at the end of the programme and be ready to join the main CrossFit Classes with confidence. Foundations costs £100 and includes a month’s unlimited access to classes. You will be welcome to participate in any of our Met-con classes until you have completed both F1 and F2 sessions, then all classes (CrossFit, Barbell Club, Met-Con) from afterwards.

Where do I start?

You can purchase the Foundations programme through our membership system teamup and then book yourself into the course dates of your choice (below). Please note that you need to complete both sessions 1 and 2 – it doesn’t matter which order you do them in as long as you complete both. You can also book yourself into as many met con classes as you like! Any questions, please email us.
