CrossFit and Functional Workout

Full-body workout and full stability

Functional training is not about training in an isolated manner. Daily movements are performed with load. You will get more stability in everyday life, more coordination in certain movements and a strengthening of the deep muscles. Our functional area is freely accessible to you. You can create your own workouts and let your imagination run wild. Need to improve your sprint? Then sprint! You want to jump higher? Then jump! Or have you ever experimented with the Kettlebell, the Bulgarian Bag, or the Battle Ropes? Then go crazy on them.

Among other things you will also find slam balls, wall balls, a SkiErgo, a Curved Runner, an AirBike and a GHD. The floor is perfectly suited for weightlifting, and there are enough weight plates or dumbbells available.

If you still lack confidence or have no experience with free training, then join our group courses! Classes are coach-led, with a maximum of 10 participants so we can correct everybody. Lessons are included in the annual membership!

Ski Ergo

The Concept2 SkiErg combines strengthening and endurance training. In addition to an excellent upper body training, the SkiErg also works abdominal/back muscles and the legs with each pull . The SkiErg is suitable for both Nordic skiing techniques (double poling and diagonal stride technique). Whether you are an amateur or a professional cross-country skier, or just looking for a great workout, the SkiErg will help you achieve your goals.

Curved Runner

It’s like running on air, but with a huge push. This treadmill is unlike anything you’ve ever run on before: it’s designed to perform intensive workouts at their best, and running on the AirRunner burns up to 30% more calories than standard motorized versions.

Concept 2 Rower

Rowing on an indoor rowing machine provides a total body workout that targets more body parts and muscle groups than any other workout machine! You train heart, lungs, circulation (aerobic and anaerobic threshold) while developing muscles in your legs, back, shoulder, glutes and arms! The device works with air resistance, which guarantees a joint-friendly workout for everyone.

Air Bike

Using air resistance, the Assault AirBike automatically adjusts to the effort you want to make. The harder you force, the greater the resistance. This is very simple physical phenomenon that has an important effect.

Ski Ergo

Der Concept2 SkiErg ermöglicht ein kombiniertes Kraftaufbau- und Ausdauertraining. Neben einem ausgezeichneten Oberkörpertraining trainiert der SkiErg mit jedem Zug auch Bauch-/Rückenmuskulatur und die Beine. Der SkiErg eignet sich sowohl für die Doppelstock- als auch die Diagonaltechnik. Egal ob Sie Langlauf-Profi, Hobby-Langläufer oder nur auf der Suche nach einer tollen Trainingsmöglichkeit sind, der SkiErg wird Ihnen helfen, Ihre Ziele zu erreichen.

Curved Runner

Es ist wie Laufen auf Luft, aber mit kräftigem Schub. Dieses Laufband ist anders als alle auf denen Du bisher gelaufen bist: sie wurde entwickelt, um hochintensive Trainingsprogramme optimal durchführen zu können und beim Laufen auf dem AirRunner werden bis zu 30% mehr Kalorien verbrannt als auf den handelsüblichen motorisierten Versionen.

Concept 2 Rower

Rudern auf dem Indoor Rower ermöglicht ein komplettes Ganzkörpertraining, das mehr Körperpartien und Muskelgruppen anspricht als irgend ein anderes Trainingsgerät! Man trainiert Herz, Lunge, Kreislauf (aerobe und anaerobe Schwelle) und baut gleichzeitig seine Bein, Rücken-, Schulter-, Gesäss-, Arm- und Beinmuskulatur auf! Das Gerät funktioniert mit Luftwiderstand, was ein gelenkschonendes Training für Jedermann/frau garantiert.

Air Bike

Unter Nutzung des Luftwiderstands skaliert sich das Assault AirBike ganz automatisch darauf, wie sehr du dich anstrengen möchtest. Je stärker du in die Pedale trittst, desto größer wird der Widerstand. Das ist ganz einfache Physik mit großem Effekt.

Back squat

Squat with a barbell positioned on the neck during execution.

Bear crawl

The exercise imitates the gait of a bear. Hands are placed flat on the floor in front of the body. Then walk forward in a diagonal stride pattern, keeping the legs and arms permanently outstretched throughout the exercise. In addition to flexibility in the legs, gluteal muscles and lower back, elbows and shoulders are also strengthened.

Benchmark workouts

These are globally standardized workouts that allow you to test your own performance and improvement by appearing repeatedly and irregularly in the WOD (Workout of the day).

BP Bench press

Lying on your back, a barbell is lowered with both hands towards your chest and pushed up with outstretched arms.

Box

CrossFit was born in the United States and was initially practiced in garages. Therefore, you don't train in a gymnasium or a fitness studio, but in a box. These boxes often still have the character of a garage or a similar structure.

Box jump

Jump onto an elevated surface, usually a wooden box.

un - broken

Do a set of exercises or a WOD without recovery time. A set is said to be "broken" if you can't do the given number of reps without stopping.

Burpee

GHD (Glute ham developer)

An exercise machine to strengthen back, abdominal, gluteal and hamstring muscles.

Girls

The so-called "Girls" are challenging workouts, which are performed on a regular basis worldwide. Coach Greg Glassman's (CrossFit founder) explanation for why the workouts are all named after women is that "Anything that left you flat on your back, looking up at the sky asking 'what just happened to me?' deserves a female name."

GTOH/G2O (Ground to overhead)

Lifting a barbell from the floor overhead. The athlete is free to perform the movement as a clean and jerk, snatch or bench press. In the overhead position, both arms must be outstretched.

Hero WODs

Hero Workouts are the male counterpart to Girls workouts and are generally longer and much more strenuous than regular workouts. They are named after American soldiers who died in combat to honour them.
