Here’s what CrossFit Thames is all about

Have you ever asked yourself.

  • How do I stay motivated?
  • What should I eat?
  • Am I doing this movement right?
  • What workout should I do?
  • What’s the best way to get fit for my sport?
  • How do I get back to the shape I used to be in?

Or are you a member of a gym you’ve only visited twice in the last two months?


As Albert Einstein says “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. We’re here to change your routine and get you better results!
