Experienced CrossFitters will appreciate the great programming, friendly atmosphere and exceptional coaching at CrossFit London.
If you’re new to CrossFit, start at our beginners’ CrossFit Level 1 guide.
For experienced CrossFitters looking to join our Box, or if you’re from out of town looking to drop-in, below is a list of the classes we offer (for our drop-in guide, click here).
CrossFit Level 2
This is your classic WOD class and the cornerstone of the schedule at CrossFit London.
Each session starts with a targeted warm-up, followed by a skill and/or strength segment to isolate and practice specific element, followed by the Workout of the Day (WOD); a high-intensity, functional group workout.
These classes are capped at 12 people (10 at our Gales Gardens location), and provide a fun and encouraging environment to develop your general physical preparedness (“GPP”).
This class is open to everyone who has graduated from our CrossFit Level 1 program, or experienced CrossFitters who’ve completed a CrossFit foundations programme elsewhere.
MetCon is a bootcamp-style series of short, high-intensity workouts. CrossFit’s fundamental moves are here, but without barbells, and limited high-level skills. You will use kettlebells, dumbells, medballs, skipping, ring-rows, sprints, etc in this high-energy, low-skill class.
MetCon classes allow athletes to spend time building a better metabolic engine, with an emphasis on moving with quality at high intensity before going heavy. We achieve this using intervals, circuits and infinite movement variety. This makes MetCon a great addition, not only to newbies fresh out of Level 1, but also the more seasoned CrossFitters looking for lighter, faster session.
There are no prerequisites to attend MetCon: it is open to any and all abilities.
Other CrossFit Classes
We offer a wide range of other classes to supplement and support your training at CrossFit London. If there’s something specific you want to work on, odds are we have a class for it.

CrossFit Level 3
This class is a step-up in intensity and duration from Level 2. As an off peak class, we can allow you more practice time and more scope to work through various skills and disciplines.
You need to be an experienced CrossFitter to join this class. There are no specific prerequisites, but you’d be expected to know your max lifts, and be able to scale appropriately without too much instruction.
The full description is here.
Competition Focus (Level 4)
CrossFit London’s Competition Focus classes are for those of our members who have experience of competing or who have an intention to do so. The aim of these classes is to prepare our athletes for the demands of competition. There is an emphasis on barbell cycling, higher level gymnastics skills (such as MUs and handstand walks) and competition-style WODs.
There is an expectation that those attending these classes will compete for CrossFit London, so some experience of competition, perhaps in The Open or in local competitions is important.
For entry to these classes, you should be completing most of the WODs in the L2 & L3 classes as RX. You should also have reasonable form in the Olympic Lifts, squats and deadlifts and the ability to perform the standard CrossFit gymnastics movements (pull-ups, C2B, T2B, pistols, MUs, HSPUs, etc.) for reps under intensity, rather than simply as a skill. And, of course, a pretty good engine!
If you are interested in attending these classes, speak with Tim Lawrence who heads our competition programme: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like the MetCon classes, this class is a full hour of intense exercise, using multiple disciplines. However, unlike MetCon, in Heavy MetCon you will find heavy barbell work and high-level gymnastics – this is not a class for the newbie CrossFitter.
There is little time dedicated to practice and technique work in these sessions, so if you’re still new to CrossFit or finding your feet, you may want to consider Level 2 first.
The prerequisites for this class are the same as for Level 2, but you should be a competent athlete that knows their own capabilities and limits.
Strongman Conditioning (Strength Athletics)
Our Strongman Conditioning classes are a packed hour of endurance training using all the classic Strongman equipment: atlas stones, tyre flips, sled drags and prowler pushes to name a few. You will also find yourself using classic CrossFit movements and skills in a testing hour of circuits, intervals and lung-busting workouts.
There are no prerequisites for this class. Just a good attitude and a desire to do some hard work.

Olympic Weightlifting Club
At our Olympic Weightlifting Club, you’ll follow our dedicated Olympic weightlifting programming. Whether you are a CrossFitter, an Olympic weightlifter, an athlete looking to dominate the competition, or just looking for a great new sport – this is the club for you.

Our CrossFit Powerlifting classes combine a dedicated strength programme with the constantly varied, functional workouts of a CrossFit class. The classes are focussed around the three power lifts – Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift – and each quarterly cycles finish with a week of retesting to see how much your lifts have improved.

Heavy Metal Club
Each class starts with either the Snatch or Clean & Jerk programmed lifts, before accessory work, finished off with a heavy workout.
If you like heavy bars and good banter, this is the class for you. But if you’re still finding your feet with the Olympic Lifts, you may want to try Level 2 or the Olympic Lifting Club first.
Monday and Fridays at 18:30, but book early as this class fills up fast!
You’ll likely have heard of some of the Benchmark workouts: Fran, Cindy, Murph, etc., and probably done one or two. But there are far more Girls and Heroes than you’re probably aware of. This Thursday class is your opportunity to try them out, and then eventually repeat them to see how you’ve improved.
Prerequisites are the same for Level 2.
This class runs every Saturday with Katarina and is an hour of strength-based lifting and accessory work. Expect some heavy weights and creative supplementary lifts, and to be sore the next day in muscles you didn’t know you had!
Wednesday Accessory Conditioning with Anthony is just what it says on the tin. You might train all the major lifts in Level 2, but here’s where you get down to the nitty-gritty: unilateral work, isolation lifting, targeted hypertrophy, all designed to get you lifting heavier for longer during the rest of the week.
CrossFit Gymnastics (Skills & Strength)
If you want to work on your WOD skills for bodyweight movements, these are the classes to come to. Handstands, HSPUs, pistols, pull-ups, toes-to-bar, ring-dips, muscle-ups, and all the other skills you wish you had.
Between them, the Skills class on Thursday and the Strength class on Saturday will help you scale and drill these movements, working on both technique and strength to get you moving better and more efficiently.
Whether you’re still trying to get that first pull-up, or if getting a 100ft handstand walk is your goal, these classes are for you.
No prerequisites, but you should be familiar with the basics of CrossFit Gymnastics.
