Constantly striving to make the gym better...

Crossfit started to interest me in about 2010. Unfortunately, I had a pretty negative experience when visiting another crossfit gym in the area for a try-out. The manager was more interested in showing me how good he was and checking his email rather than providing me with any meaningful introduction. I came away from the experience very disappointed and decided to give Crossfit a miss. In 2013, I heard there was a second gym in the area. Talk about night and day. CrossfitHG3 is managed by the two owners, Pete and Ruds, which makes all the difference. They’re laid back and approachable but at the same time they’re on the ball, making sure you’re pushing yourself but safely within your limits of your strength and technique. The workouts are all inclusive so there’s alway options to scale back to something that’s within your capability. Pete and Rudds are constantly striving to make the gym better and improve the experience for their members. I do quite a lot of cycling for cardio fitness so the strength and conditioning I’m gaining through crossfit is complimenting this perfectly. I look forward to getting more involved with the club and seeing how it and I develop. Thanks guys!
