"I was never really into going to gyms but
this place head me absolutely hooked since
day one. Great facility, great coaches and
an all-over great communtiy!"
"Since beginning at CSP I became obsessed with
training almost straight away!
I hate missing sessions now and I'm stronger,
fitter and healthier now than I've ever been!"
"I suffered a bad accident over the summer
and the doctor's told me if I wasn't as strong
and fit as I was then I mightn't have even made it through.
That's all thanks to CSP and the coaches and
I will be forever grateful!"
'Going to the gym is now great fun
and is no longer a chore!
I'm so glad I found CSP!'
"After finishing the Fundamentals course
I am so excited for the months ahead
because I know this is where I will hit all
the training goals I wasn't hitting at a regular gym!
This is THE place to be to improve your
way of life, and become much fitter and
healthier in the process. MUCH more than
just a gym, could not recommend this
place highly enough!'
"I have two kids in the kids classes at CSP
now and they even tell me when I squat wrong
and I absolutely love that!
Best family gym I've ever been in by far!"
"I would highly recommend CSP to anyone
interested in their health and fitness.
The coaches really know their stuff and the
atmosphere in the gym is brilliant!"
2015 CrossFit Open Review What an unbelievable Open we had this year. In years passed at CSP the Open wasn’t really centre to our thought’s as, as the gym was in it’s infancy, our priorities centred more around training, coaching and growing our gym and community. The few guy’s that had been here from the…
CrossFit Open 15.5 Strategy: This weeks final test takes us into more familiar territory with two of the movements predicted by many, rowing and thrusters, finally making their appearance in this years Open. The format is genius also, and makes for a little bit more of a punisher than previous weeks. The larger rep range…
Volume, Intensity and Training Stress: Within any training program the management of volume and intensity is key to the progression of the athlete. Volume and Intensity have a distinct and important relationship to each other and as a strength and conditioning coach you must understand the subtlety of the impact each can have on the…
CrossFit Open 15.4 Strategy: This weeks workout brings a really good test, a traditional CrossFit couplet of a Gymnastics piece paired with a Weightlifting variation: Handstand Pushups & Cleans, in an ascending ladder. This is the first time HSPU’s have mad an appearance in the Open and it’s a great inclusion from HQ. With the…
15.3 Strategy Yet again not too many surprises this week with the announcement of 15.3. Same energy system testing we generally see in the Open (Aerobic Power/Possible Lactic Capacity if really pushing into later rounds) as well as the inclusion of movements we all expected to make an appearance at some stage: Muscle Ups, WallBalls…
CrossFit Open 15.2 Strategy: Amidst the exciting and unpredictable variability of the CrossFit Open, there often lies at least one predictable variable: The inevitable inclusion of a repeat-workout. This time around 15.2 is that inevitability with athletes expected to best their 14.2 scores in an ascending ladder of Overhead Squats and Chest to Bar Pull-ups.…
CrossFit Open 15.1 Strategy: So finally 15.1 (and 15.1a!) have been released and despite all the drama and build-up from Castro and co. nothing too surprising has shown up given what we know about the changes this year. The workout’s themselves are a brilliant test of different capacities and given the fact that two of…

The following are some thoughts on how the CrossFit model fits in with the training hierarchy of GPP (General Physical Preparedness) and SPP (Specific Physical Preparedness) in relation to the traditional strength & conditioning and sporting models: General Physical Preparedness, or GPP, ‘is intended to provide balanced physical conditioning in endurance, strength, speed, flexibility and…
