CrossFit Colchester Events are a culmination of years of competitive experience. We draw from our athlete experiences at events across Europe, from the CrossFit Regionals to our beloved in-house competitions to bring the very best competition day experience to you.
Not only are the workouts fun, they’re legitimate tests of fitness. Our aim is to provide a platform for you to show off all your hard work in the box. That’s why we don’t start until 12pm! Those extra few hours in bed are sure to mean an extra few kilos on your PB.
Our in house Fresh Cafe is always open. Serving up some tasty treats, lunch and all the caffeine and protein you’ll ever need. We have physios at the ready and changing rooms, in door toilets and best of all – showers. In other words we have got you covered!
This is all great, but what’s even better is better is awesome prizes! And we don’t mean a couple cans of drink and a protein bar. At all of our events you’ll be rewarded generously for your efforts with cash prizes and loads of goodies from event sponsors.
Over £Cash prize pot for each competition PLUS loads more Stash for event wins and podium finishes.
