CROSSFIT READING is United Kingdom’s most successful state of the art CrossFit® box
designed to suit all athletes from beginners through to advanced competitors.

We are and have been an official CrossFit affiliated facility since 2008, and are a part of the broader global CrossFit community.

Our facility is different to mainstream commercial gyms. We have minimal machines  as we believe in training you to move your body naturally, not move your body around a machine. We use Olympic weights and barbells, pull up rigs, kettlebells,  plyometric boxes, giant tyres for lifting, drag sleds, medicine balls, skipping ropes, atlas stones dumbbells, carry yokes and other equipment that teach us to move our bodies functionally (naturally) rather than teach us to move the way to a machine.

Our facility is coached by qualified coaches with a wealth of qualifications, knowledge and training experience between them including;

  • CrossFit Level 1 Certification
  • CrossFit Level 1 & Level 2 Trainers
  • CrossFit Gymnastics
  • Level 3 Personal Training
  • British Weight Lifting

We are passionate about our training and our  coaching.

Our aim at CrossFit Reading is to be able to provide the best training and coaching possible to help you achieve your goals and beyond.
