Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box

Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box

Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box.    

Here's why...

Head coach and CEO of CrossFit Ulysses has said on numerous occasions, that he wants to help people, no matter who you are or where you come from: and he does just that. Ben helps people believe in themselves. He is passionate about changing people's lives for the better.   Ben along with his great team of CrossFit coaches, PT's and nutrition coaches have been helping people achieve amazing milestones in their life!   From weight loss, fighting diseases to building muscles and even doing things in workouts like getting pull ups and lifting heavy weights.  People of all ages, weight, backgrounds, no matter your lifestyle we have a class or PT to suit everyone. Whatever your goal may be, Ben and his team can help you achieve it.   

At CrossFit Ulysses you'll do the WOD in a class environment which is capped to 16, so basically you're having a personal training session with a fully qualified CrossFit coach/PT, in a fun, safe environment

At Ulysses we pride ourselves on family/community values and everyone is treated exactly the same.  From the CEO to the cleaner, we know everyone is on the same journey.   Everyone is here for the same goal, to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle.    That's what everyone wants right? 

If you're a beginner or a veteran you'll find everyone at Ulysses has the same mindset.    To be the best version of themselves.    We TRUST THE PROCESS and find ourselves reaching potentials in ourselves we never know we had.  

I've heard people say "People talk about CrossFit like it's a cult".  Well if a cult is a group of like minded people who have you believing in yourself and help you achieve what you thought was impossible, then yes CrossFit could be 'like a cult'. 

The right coaches and members around you bring out the best in you and once you start believing in yourself like others do, you can achieve anything. Believe in yourself and the possibilities are endless.

I'm absolutely buzzing

I'm absolutely buzzing

I’m absolutely buzzing 🤣to have been picked for Member of the month for April and i’d like to thank everyone who got me to this actual point. Not just the coaches but the all the lovely members who pushed me on and made me push to points I never thought possible.    

First stepping into CrossFit Ulysses I had no idea of what CrossFit was and I didn’t know anything about Olympic weight lifting either.  I had a good level of fitness before i started, but nothing to what I have now.

I was nervous even though I had my uncle with me.  So after I completed my on-ramp I had my first session which I was also very nervous about but I loved every minute of it.  I also loved the friendly competitive side of it and I couldn’t think of a better place to train.

Since joining, whenever it was I did as i feel like i’ve been there since they first opened the door 🤣,  I now know I am much fitter and stronger physically and mentally. I also used all the training within Ulysses to get me where I am today with my career choice.

I went to catterick garrison in November last year and my only focus back then was running, but I failed which hit me really hard due to me wanting to be a paratrooper.  I thought my dream of being one was no longer and i was so upset, so my uncle advised me to join CrossFit Ulysses and since joining I have achieved so many things. Running with a weighted vest is now easy, i can do more pull ups and my strength with weight lifting is getting better day by day.

I have recently got back from catterick after attempting my tests again, knowing all my training has made stronger and I passed which I couldn’t be more happy about.   Ulysses coaches, staff and members have started me on my new journey and now i get to follow me dreams of being a Paratrooper and I am forever grateful. They all helped me grow and become the person i am today.

I used to go to a standard gym and didn’t have a clue or any understanding what I was doing, which you hear people say a lot.   But now I know I could step into any gym and create my own WOD and train effectively.

I wouldn’t recommend any other box to go to as Ulysses is THE ONE!  Never have i met such great people and all the members support each other no matter what.  The family atmosphere is one which you wouldn’t find in any mainstream gym, or anywhere else.  

 I’m going to miss my Ulysses family while i’m away on my training, but i’ll be back. Where else would i want to go when on leave?  🤣🤣 xx


Fist bump's all round!

Fist bump's all round!

Our member of the month for March Jonny tells us his CrossFit journey below. Jonny is having to leave us for pastures new and we know his next CrossFit box is gaining an amazing team player. All the coaches and members wish you the best of luck with your new job and hope to see you soon.  Keep smashing them goals and keep being awesome.


Firstly I’d like to give a massive thanks (and fist pump obviously) to all the coaches for bestowing me with this honour!! 

Last September, when I first went down to Crossfit Ulysses for my “taster session” with Chris I didn’t really know what to expect.  I had heard varying views of CrossFit and I had my own ill conceived notion that you had to be incredibly fit in order to take part.  Chris did a great job of introducing me to Crossfit and after that first session it was abundantly clear that all the work outs could be scaled to anyone’s ability.  I’m not sure how everyone else found the taster session but I did plenty of sweating!!!

I got through my foundation classes and about a months’ worth of full classes before a new addition to the family arrived.  Training took a back seat for the next 6 weeks or so but by that stage I was already hooked!!  The coaches and members in the box are awesome and there is always plenty of craic and great atmosphere to help push you through the work outs.

I got back  into the swing of things in the new year (after plenty of indulgence/weight gain over the festive period) and decided to enter the Open to keep me focused.  I thought the way that this was organised by Ulysses was great and I wish I could have made some of the Saturday sessions as they looked awesome craic!!  The Open workouts definitely pushed me to the limit but also made me realise that CrossFit is something that I wanted to work and improve at.  I would like to think that I have made a substantial improvement since starting but at the same time I have a long way to go.  I find it’s the small wins that help keep you enthusiastic though – things that might seem insignificant but I was delighted when I held myself over the bar for 15 seconds or got my nose to the wall on a wall walk!!  I’ll keep working at the headstands Chris!!!

To sign off I would like to say that the all coaches and members have made CrossFit an awesome (life changing) experience for me and I only wish that I had given it a shot earlier!!  If I ever find myself in Teesside you’ll have to make room for me in one of your classes because I’m definitely dropping in!!!

Regards
