Our approach

We are here to help YOU!

CrossFit Scheveningen coaches are experts who will know to motivate, being creative and encouraging. All of this – with a high smile factor-.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to inspire, navigate and guide, showing options to live happier, fuller and longer lives, through the sport of CrossFit and fundamental principles of nutrition.

Mission statement:

Is to create a culture of inclusiveness in a place where people feel safe, supported, respected; making that lasting impact on people’s lives through functional fitness in pursuit of becoming their best selves.

Our Values:

  • Integrity:

We follow through on our commitments and promises. We are patient, respectful and trustworthy.

  • Humble:

By staying curios and willing to learn. We are open-minded and trust in the process. Thankful for every opportunity.

  • Inclusive:

Inclusiveness is key as making everyone feel at home. We value and respect each other for who we are as individuals. We are committed to one-and-other, individually and collectively – our strength is our community.

  • Hard Working:

We are persistent and determined to continue on, even if it’s difficult or uncomfortable in order to reach a higher goal or outcome.

Our mission is to have you achieve your fitness goals in a healthy way, within a (likeminded) friendly community. The CrossFit program we advocate is founded on results based training. Together with basic nutrition principles making it a combination for success. Your success!

Because whatever your current fitness level or experience is, we will listen and find that way to move forward together and become the best version of yourself!

Coaches will help you make decisions about appropriate scaling of workouts. Doing them RX’d (as prescribed) is not the goal; doing the best version of the workout for you is the goal and will be enforced as needed. Please maintain a dialogue with your coach, ask questions, and seek feedback when you are unsure what to do.

From time to time trainers may approach you and ask about your nutrition, lifestyle, attendance, injuries, and goals. We hope you don’t find this intrusive, but we want to take an active role in your progress – don’t think we are singling you out!
