Find out what your fitness has been missing and how to get started

FACT: Life isn't easy and it was never supposed to be

To meet life's challenges (and win) you're going to need a strong and capable body. You're also going to need to be mentally tough

That's what CrossFit does:

  • It makes you physically stronger, and it makes you mentally tougher. 
  • It prepares you to excel at life and it’s daily activities. 
  • It prepares you to handle the unknown and the unknowable.
  • It increases your tolerance for discomfort, which in turn, increases your levels of resilience -> your ability to bounce back after adversity

Functional Capacity

You're either gaining it or you're losing it...

As people get older, they become decrepit -> they lose functional capacity. They become frail and weak, loose their balance, fall over, and break their hips #gameover

Unfortunately we’re starting to see people in their twenties, succumbing to decrepitude. They have little to no physical capacity or mental toughness. They fold under the slightest bit of pressure and are more susceptible to depression and anxiety - they have no resilience

The aim of CrossFit is to fight decrepitude -> Our goal is to help you build functional capacity - we seek to improve and increase your:

  • Cardiovascular & Respiratory Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Coordination
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Accuracy

By training those skills on a daily basis

The CrossFit Prescription

Constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity.

Sure, but what does that all mean?

  • Constantly Varied
  • Functional MOvements
  • High Intensity

High intensity: It's all relative

Intensity is the key to results and it's why CrossFit is one of the most effective methodol

Intensity can come from a lifting a heavy weight or from lifting a lighter weight for more repetitions. It can come from a sustained effort or it can come from short, fast-paced effort

Most importantly intensity is relative. Eg. What may be intense for a well conditioned athlete will be different to a pregnant woman in her second trimester (and yes, we train both…) 

Your safety is our first priority so we'll teach you how to move properly before we load you up with substantial weight. We'll make sure that you're moving well on a consistent basis before we introduce you to anything like intensity 

Mechanics first -> Consistency second -> and Intensity last

Our Process

Everything starts with a discovery session

Before training with Adapt (Personal Training or Group Class), you must book in for a FREE Discovery Session

The aim of this initial catch-up is to find out more about you, what you're looking for, and confirm that we can help you - we'll cover things like your exercise and health history, your current lifestyle and nutritional habits, and your athletic goals

Depending on your experience, we'll then recommend the most appropriate way for you to get started - which generally, will be one of two options:

you've done CrossFit before

”‹ (within the last 2 months) - we'll organise a testing session; or

you're new to the Gym/CrossFit”‹

we'll organise for you to commence out Fundamentals program

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Q: Do You Offer A FREE Trial?

A: No

At Adapt, we pride ourselves on providing our members with the best coaching and workout experience in Canberra


Throwing someone new into a class (for a free trial), that they may not be ready for, is totally irresponsible and just isn't the right way to help someone reach their goals or respect the rest of the class

Q: Do You Offer a Student/First Responder Discount?

A: No

We consider our rates to be quite competitive. We also take a strong stance on having the best coaching and member experience….not the cheapest.

There are no discounts for police, fire, students and this makes it fair across the board - no one is in a place where they feel lesser or disrespected.
