CrossFit Harrow was born in 2015. Before the gym was open, we created the manifesto: a single sheet of paper that defined CrossFit Harrow was about, what we believed in, and what our goals were.
This is what we wrote:
We value everyone and everything we have around us
We want to give everyone a fair opportunity, regardless of their ability, gender, race, age or competence
We want to create a Positive environment.
We respect everyone and treat others how we wish to be treated.
The CrossFit Harrow Vision is to be the best fitness facility in the HA Postcode.
Our Mission Statement reads
We will provide our members the highest quality fitness experience through 3 fundamental components, the BEST Intro program, the BEST member experience and deliver the very BEST results.
Our Philosophy is simple: At CrossFit Harrow we believe that just about anything is possible with a bit of hard work and dedication. We want to be able to bring all different types of people together through one common ground: CrossFit.
CrossFit Harrow has been changing lives all over Harrow since we opened in 2015. We believe it not just a hobby, but a way of life. Our facility is unlike any other gym you’ve been to before. We pride ourselves not only in providing world class CrossFit training, but we also believe in creating a motivating and dynamic environment filled with like-minded people of all ages and body types, and those who are committed to working hard and achieving lasting fitness results. We love what we do, and it shows on the gym floor. It’ll be the best hour of your day, we promise!
Your No Sweat Intro
What is a No Sweat Intro?
A No Sweat Intro is a 30 min consultation.
We want to get to know you and understand your health and fitness goals, and then together we’ll decide what the best way to get started will be – Small Group Classes, Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching, or a combination. The good news is that we have a variety of programs available for whatever your needs may be!
Our “No Sweat Intro” is a private, free consultation that provides an opportunity for you to share your background, past injuries, concerns, and (most importantly) your unique goals. For some, the conversation is very quick, for others it’s a bit more in depth.
What do YOU want? That’s the first step we take – learning about you. Everyone is different and we don't have a one size fits all approach. We offer more than access to equipment and great music. We want to hear your story.
Then we work together to design a plan that is created to meet you where you are, today. We take into consideration your lifestyle and time constraints too.
Next, we deliver on that plan – sometimes it’s through 1-on-1 personal training or it might be in our small group, semi-private sessions.
We even offer remote options, allowing you to train with us, from afar. Lastly, we schedule check-ins to assess your progress. We ask how you’re doing. Are you taking steps in the right direction? It’s a process, but that’s what we’re here for. That’s what coaches do.
Making change is hard. Sticking with it is even harder. It all starts with you taking the step to book your FREE No Sweat Intro. When you’re ready, we’re here.
Our 4 Core Pillars
At CrossFit Harrow we’ve designed a number of services for people at all levels. We don't have a one size fits all. We are more than just a place to workout.
At CrossFit Harrow, we are changing people's perception of health and fitness through a new method of Personal Training. As a private gym we are focused on helping our clients lead the most fulfilled life they can.
The CrossFit methodology builds a super human. It includes a diverse range of exercises and modifications to suit a range of difficulties, from beginner to advanced. Group training is excellent for motivation and you will always push harder training together than what you will training alone.
Your nutrition is just as important as your physical fitness. We recognise that this is the hardest part so we have developed a realistic program to go hand in hand with your fitness. Our service includes data analysis of your body composition, weekly meetings one to one with an expert along with a 3 month support plan.
LET US BE YOUR GUIDE
With constantly varied workouts and a dynamic community to train with, CrossFit is not just another boring gym fad… it’s a state of mind, a philosophy, and a lifestyle. It doesn’t matter what shape or size you are because CrossFit is for people of all ages, and for those with drive and abilities to improve their overall fitness in a fun and challenging environment.

WHAT IS CROSSFIT KIDS?
Our Kid’s Program is an exciting and fun way for kids to exercise and learn healthy lifestyle habits. Our Coaches provide a safe and fun environment that guarantees success for all ability and experience levels. This is NOT just weightlifting for kids. We focus on good movement, having fun, teamwork, and confidence building. The program is based primarily on running, drills, games, bodyweight exercises, tumbling, etc, and introduces the basics of safe weight training.
Each workout, your kids will learn and practice functional movements involving exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play.
They will participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes.
They will pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift, and jump. There will be drills designed to help develop critical thinking and reasoning skills, instil confidence, and learn the value of leadership and teamwork. Your kids will learn healthy lifestyle practices that will last a lifetime.
We provide an environment that celebrates the abilities and successes of every child, at every ability level, and of every body type. We will combat the notion that there are ideal body types, shapes, and sizes. We will teach the kids to understand that every body is capable of amazing things. We want to build the confidence in every kid we meet to be comfortable in his/her own skin.
Enrolling your child in a well rounded program like ours will show them that health and fitness is something that you prioritise and want to educate them about.
Kids brains are like little sponges, itching to make neurological connections and adaptations. These connections in the brain are made in response to stimuli. The more kids can be exposed to when they are young, the more connections and capacities they develop and retain for the rest of their lives.
We work with kids on sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, listening skills, self-discipline and manners. These are all skills, though not physical, that will help kids become successful later in life.
Fitness As A Lifestyle
The benefits of a program like CrossFit Kids can be long lasting for children, both physically and mentally, and it is a great activity for children to get into at any age. It is also important to make sure kids find fitness fun – if children grow up associating working out with being something enjoyable and clearly seeing the benefits to their bodies and health, then they are more likely to keep fitness as a priority throughout their lives. Eating healthy becomes a natural and normal choice and being active becomes something they just do.
