A lighter and more energetic and joyful daily life!

Want to engage in healthy activities but don’t really enjoy or know much about exercising? Want to resolve metabolic syndrome? Want to say good-bye to chronic or recent physical issues? Challenge and inspire yourself to start a new chapter in your life!

Crossfit is unique because it breaks down fundamental movements into 10 categories and evenly engages in each training category.

  • 歩く

Crossfit training is based on movements we use frequently in everyday life.

Many associate Crossfit with people who want to get muscular. At Crossfit Kyoto, rather than focusing on getting ripped, we know that everyone has a different ideal of fitness and we focus on supporting health for each individual.

The Crossfit Concept Pyramid

  • [Lifestyle] Being able to do everything makes life more easy!
  • People involved in sports can improve their performance levels.
  • [Things] Once you develop a foundation, the next step is to throw and lift to develop your outward potential.
  • [Functionality] Being able to support and control your own body and expanding your range of motion improves physical functionality.
  • [Metabolism] Exercising strengthens cardiovascular function and promotes effective muscle development, strengthens the core, and improves metabolic channels.
  • [Nutrition] High-quality nutrition is the foundation for building the body and maintaining health. Crossfit recommends the Zone diet.

*These reflect concepts adopted by Crossfit Kyoto.

Crossfit focuses on Balance

  • 3. Muscle strength |
  • 4. Flexibility |
  • 5. Power |
  • 6. Speed |
  • 7. Coordination |
  • 8. Agility |
  • 9. Balance |
  • 10. Accuracy

Appeal of Crossfit Kyoto

01

Semi-Private/Personal Fun Training we can provide unique programs for all participants

In our semi-private/personal training, every movement is adjusted to the individual.
Enjoyable for both athletes and for people with no experience in exercising.

  • From kids to the elderly, coaches adjust movements and intensity based on individual fitness level, age, etc. You can make performance improvements, both in daily life and in sports. Various languages and ages provide a fun atmosphere for all, regardless of physical ability.

  • People of varying strength can participate in the same class by having different weights and enjoy the workout together.

  • The box is used in many Crossfit movements. For people who are injured or who cannot (yet 🙂 ) jump, our coaches will adjust the box to a different height or offer a simpler movement.
