The Journey Begins

This the brand new website for the exciting new WMP CrossFit section. We are now officially affiliated to Crossfit.com as a non-profit so we can bring you lots of great content.

CrossFit is such a social sport accessible to anyone no matter where you are currently in terms of fitness and ability. CrossFit is all about improving health and fitness, achieving new personal goals and supporting one another in a “leave your ego at door” community spirit. It’s perfect for building the General Physical preparedness that many of us need to do our jobs safely and deal with mental and physical impact of daily business.

Our monthly meet-ups will be advertised internally and will be held at CrossFit Digbeth -140 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR (www.crossfitdigbeth.com).

These sessions are open to all officers and staff , whether you do CrossFit or not. It’s a chance for those who have never tried it, or even heard of it, to see what it’s all about and to give it a try. It will also be a chance to meet everyone and bounce ideas off each other about how we move forward. There will be a couple of short WODs (workouts) that will be completely scalable to suit everyone.

The first session is completely free to all sports and social members as is each consecutive session for WMP Crossfit members. For those new to Crossfit who sign up, there will be additional introductory sessions made available whereby each of the sessions will take you through a series of skills and techniques you are required to perform correctly, to ensure your safety at the correct level of intensity for you.

The first UK Police Crossfit games is taking place next week and WMP Crossfit are excited to be sending a team. News and photos to follow.
