Crossfit Haileybury Almaty was founded in April 2017. What is CrossFit? Well, it can be defined as:
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
We currently use the programme to supplement our teaching of students in fitness while in Physical Education, but also run a small scale staff programme as well. To find out more, reach out to our Head of PE Mr Calum Erskine (
