Id originally attended Petes (coach/owner) Kettlebell Classes, which he ran before coming an Crossfit affiliate. I was looking for a new challenge and Pete convinced me to take a leap and try Crossfit. I was really nervous because id google Crossfit and seen videos of people flinging themselves around and lifting unimaginable weights, but Pete assured me that Crossfit was scalable for all.
What has been you best experiences so far?
“My favourite experience so far has to be taking part in competitions – which is something i never thoughts id do. Crossfit Scarborough regularly sends teams to compete at Battle Cancer events. We always have a great time; we laugh alot and we’ve raised alot of money for charity too. I have met brilliant people and have made some really good friends.”
What do you say to yourself before a workout?
I usually tell myself to ‘woman up and get on with it’. I’ve had some amazing support from the coaching team and i am now fitter, stronger and leaner, as a result.
What would you say to your old self before joining the gym?
I would tell the old me to not doubt myself and just give it a try. I’ve learnt alot at Crossfit Scarborough. I always come away with a sense of achievement and a smile on my face, even when theres been Devils Press in a workout!

Your safety is our no.1 priority!
Was so good to be back inside. Felt really well managed and safe!
Our class sizes are smaller, which gives us more time doing what we love, coaching! Although we’d love to have everyone back in the gym together we are making the most of this opportunity!
We have added new Dumbbells, Barbells, Bumper Plates, plyo bxes etc This will allow everyones training be alot more time efficient and under the current circumstances not have to share anything.
Safety is our number one priority!
Social distancing certainly didnt stop us celebrating long standing member Fleurs 50th birthday. Brilliant turnout and the weather was perfect for a long hero wod.

1-2-1 coaching from the comfort of your own home.
5th July 2020
Alyson Ritchie has been training with us for around 5 and a half years now and is still making huge progress with her training.
Since lockdown, Alyson decided to follow our Online Training Program, which was a perfect fit for training from home while receiving 1-2-1 coaching.
Read below to hear her throughs…
“Online training has been a great new way to train, providing a structure which is really important to me. It also gives me the accountability i need to keep progressing in my training.
As part of the online training program you work 1-2-1 with a coach to develope goals to enhance your training, performance and enjoyment. Support is on hand regularly via check-ins so you never feel like you are stalling.
During the last couple of months ive seen real tangile results. Ive lost over 14lb on the scales through focusing on my nutrition, ive also gained confidence in my running and my flexibilty hs improved massively!”
