Originally operating out of a small back yard shed CrossFit King is now a purpose-built CrossFit gym located inside the Salisbury Super Sports Centre, on the corner of Toohey and Evans Rd. Owners Jim and April King are dedicated to improving their members’ quality of life with a comprehensive service that effectively increases their physical capacities.
Applying the proven CrossFit methodology of constantly varied functional movement performed at an individually appropriate high intensity, CrossFit King delivers long-term health benefits to all members and challenges each person to pursue goals that express maximal athletic potential.
In addition, their services include personal training, physiotherapy, sports massage, lifestyle education seminars targeting stretching and trigger point therapy, sports injury management and nutrition.
Our community comes together both in the box and on our facebook page and website. Visiting the site regularly will help you stay abreast of latest WODs and updates on results. We encourage you to contribute to the CrossFit King community by posting a comment or sharing your thoughts.
We welcome your feedback so send us an email or catch us for a chat. We want your CrossFit experience to be the best it can be.
Please be on time. Unlike an open gym, every CrossFit class is run by a trainer. You will not get the full CrossFit experience if you miss the warm up or the coaching information that happens at the start of each class.
Listen carefully to your trainer. The fun thing about CrossFit is that each session is a new and different experience. It is important that you do the movements the way they are taught… it is for your safety and efficiency of movement.
If you are concerned about any particular injury please let your trainer know before class begins.
Maximise your workout! Part of the CrossFit philosophy is that all movement is part of the workout. That means you help set up your own equipment and help pack it away.
Respect and support your fellow CrossFitters: encouragement from your mates goes a long way. Cheerleaders are always encouraged.
A positive attitude. You’ll get out of CrossFit what you put in to it.
A water bottle (we have a cold water cooler for top ups)
Sports tape – you’d be surprised at its many uses. BYO or buy from us at $10 per roll
Skipping rope – we have plenty, but if you have a favourite, bring it along.
Suitable clothing – CrossFit is a total body experience, so wear something you’ll feel comfortable in.
As for shoes: we highly recommend weightlifting shoes during these sessions but you can start with your regular trainers first.
Wearing skins may help with prevention of shin scraping, heat retention and compression of muscle. All in all helping to prevent injury.
We have storage for your equipment and if required we can safely secure any valuables. We recommend no jewellery during workouts – wearing rings encourages blisters and necklaces can be damaged when you rack the bar.
