Crossfit
in The Hague

What is CrossFit at Health & Fit De Werf in The Hague?

CrossFit is a strength, conditioning and overall fitness program that combines a mix of aerobic exercise, body weight training and weightlifting. The aim is to improve your cardiovascular/ respiratory endurance, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.

CrossFit classes are held in a specially dedicated part of the gym called “the Box” that includes equipment from multiple disciplines such as barbells, dumbbells, pull up bars, jump ropes, kettle bells, medicine balls, boxes and much more!

CrossFit is focused on “constantly varied, high-intensity functional movement “, using exercises like body weight exercises, indoor rowing, Olympic-style weightlifting, powerlifting, endurance training etc. etc.

CrossFit lessons are taught by our well trained, highly skilled instructors and typically include a warm-up, a segment to develop skills, the high intensity “Workout of the Day” (or WOD) and concludes with a period of individual or group stretching.

With CrossFit you execute exercises at 85% of your maximum ability to lift a certain amount of weight once. Which means that with certain exercises such as squats, deadlifts or military presses the weight load can be quite substantial. Correct execution of the exercises, focused on form and within the limits of your body will help prevent injuries. CrossFit workouts tend to vary greatly but will always encourage you to push towards your maximum capacity.

Everyone is welcome to join a CrossFit lesson, especially when you are really looking to improve your stamina, fitness levels and strength. Our professional and experienced trainers will always help you reach your full potential!

We offer a clean and safe environment to work out.

WOD- Training

WOD derives from the CrossFit lessons and is an abbreviation of “Workout of the Day”. A WOD generally contains a few different exercises and will roughly take about 15 minutes. During this time, you execute a combination of exercises or a certain amount of repetitions. The focus is on your own performance; every WOD you compete with yourself, to push yourself to reach your ultimate fitness goals!
