Copy of Abs of steel, but couldn't do a sit up!

Our Member of the Month for May was unanimously picked by all the coaches.


Andy has worked so hard during his PT sessions and in all the WODs and his progression has been amazing for us all to see.   Andy could, not and i’m being serious here, could not even do a sit up. He had abs of steel, but no strength. See looks can be deceiving!

  Andy had already wrote a bio, which we were going to post later in the month, but credit where credit’s due.

Here’s his story and just a few of the reason’s he was picked by the Ulysses coaches.

I’ve been training with Ben for about 3 months and without getting my tongue too brown I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made.

I came to CrossFit Ulysses thinking I had a pretty decent level of fitness from training at gyms for a couple years before... How naive I was 😅


After completing my foundations and having had more than one reality check along the way I decided to invest in some PT sessions with Ben.

I had a number of goals I wanted to hit and areas I wanted to improve on. After a full consultation Ben explained to me how we would work towards the goals I had set but also had his own recommendations for areas I would really benefit from improving on (For those who saw my struggle from day one it might have involved a little core work... maybe... 😂).

I’ve gone from not being able to do a single sit up to bar muscle ups (the best looking ones in Ulysses, right @damob15 💁‍♂️ 😜) and the other week I got my first ring muscle up (it wasn’t the prettiest but it still counts 💪 😂)

I really believe I wouldn’t have achieved these goals in this short time without the tips, progressions and advice from Ben. He is someone who really knows what he’s talking about and is passionate about what he does, it’s clear to see just from speaking to him and watching him coach.


Anyone reading this who has thought about coming along to see what it’s all about but hasn’t yet for whatever reason, just do it! And for people who might be interested in getting some PT I can tell you first hand it’s worth it.


I’m generally not a soppy or sentimental guy but finally I just wanted to say a big thank you @benjakeman and a massive thank you to everyone at @crossfitulysses, coaches and members, for making me feel welcome and a part of the tribe  #teamulysses ✌️

Skills pay the bills

Skills pay the bills

Skills pay the bills a wise coach once said……or maybe that was just me.

So you’ve been training for 6 months, 1 year, 5 years and still haven’t hit that 1 skill, that 1 skill that is holding you back, annoyingly? Or maybe if you’re human like me you still have many skills you would love to learn?

What have you tried?

For how long?

How many times?

What guidance if any have you sought?

It could be you’re 1st double under, push up, pull up, toes to bar, ring muscle up bar muscle up or maybe you are looking to improve the confidence in movements?

Skills are neurological- powered and learned with the brain, regardless of type! They need to taught and learned with consistency at a low heart rate, repeating of a motor pattern so you’re brain can control the muscle firing with electrical impulses!

We are electro-mechanical creations. The brain must think first what the body can physically do.

We’ve been through this process, frustration and pattern of attempt and fail ourselves and in doing so have crafted our new service for you.

Skills accelerator groups

Personal training groups capped at 4, lessons taught over 4 weeks of 1 hour with homework, progressions and a program to follow to accelerate you’re learning 5 to 10 times.

This group with its own coach, video feedback, pre and post testing.

WHAT GETS RECORDED, GETS IMPROVED is our saying!

The group of 4 reduces the cost from our usual price for 1:1 of £160 and saves you £60

Would you pay £100 for 4 1:1 sessions, group accountability and feedback, a training program and reduce your learning time by 5-10 times?

Hell yeah!

If this is you, please simply leave us your details on this form and we’ll do the rest.
