What Is Crossfit

An Introduction to Crossfit

The only way to truly understand how it works is to come in for a free trial.

What is CrossFit:

  • CrossFit is constantly varied exercise - no session will be the same

  • High intensity functional movement - You know you have had a good workout when you do a session with us

  • Not specialised - we prepare you for everything! 


CrossFit is broad, general and inclusive and a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains: 

  • Cardiovascular and respiratory endurance 

  • Stamina

  • Strength

  • Flexibility

  • Power

  • Speed    

  • Coordination

  • Agility

  • Balance 

  • Accuracy

Our goal is to change your perspective from “how do I look?” to “how is my body performing?” As we improve your body's performance your body shape will follow. CrossFit is a program for everyone. There is no such thing as getting in shape for this type of training, we dedicate ourselves and our programs on progressing each person no matter what their fitness level, age or what their exercise history is.

Crossfit is a unification of health and fitness and a community of people who enjoy each other’s company and workout together. We pride ourselves on making it the best hour of everyone's day.

The equipment is different, the interaction of the people is different, the movements are different than you see in a traditional gym and therefore you see different results. All you need to do is show up, give it your best and the rest takes care of itself. 

Our dedicated coaches and other athletes are here to support you and push you every step of the way. We will make you better version of yourself. Period. Our goal is to help people of all fitness levels improve their quality of life. All it takes is to walk through our doors and say hello, and we will get you set up and ready to go.

Introduction to CrossFit East Tamaki

CrossFit East Tamaki

was formed in early 2013. 

Callum and Zak had an increasing drive to develop fitness and push performance across a broad range of physical requirements. 

CrossFit East Tamaki has developed into a large, fun community of athletes and general fitness fanatics that share the same passion to better themselves each day. 

CrossFit East Tamaki has a competitive background unmatched in New Zealand, having several athletes qualify and compete at the Pacific Regional in Australia as individuals and the CFET team: Zaks Pack East Tamaki. Zaks Pack has also qualified and competed at The CrossFit Games in 2015 and 2016, after placing 2nd and winning the Pacific Regional respectively. If you want to get into CrossFit competitions, you would be hard pressed to find a more suitable place to kick that into gear.

All that being said our social events & the CFET Xmas parties are not to be missed, we still know how to let our hair down.
