Welcome to CrossFit Bury
We are Bury and North Manchester's first and only affiliated CrossFit gym.
You won't just join a gym, you will be joining a community of like-minded people who will support you, encourage you and make training fun!
Our class size is limited to 8, so you'll never feel lost in a crowd and you'll always be part of our community!
CrossFit is scalable and therefore is designed for all ages and fitness levels, regardless of previous injuries. It is the perfect fitness programme for any individual who has the motivation to better themselves, regardless of experience.
We support and coach everyone, at every stage, to achieve the health and fitness level they desire.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT CROSSFIT BURY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE FIT TO JOIN, BUT YOU’LL GET FIT BY JOINING!
At the heart of Crossfit bury's PHILOSOPHY lies the belief that we train to cultivate the character, strength and grit required to thrive in our lives outside the box, whether that's to benefit our sport, profession or personal lives.
CrossFit workouts, known as 'WODs' or 'workout of the day', combine elements of cardio-endurance conditioning, gymnastics and weightlifting. We lift weight, we move our bodies and the weight fast, and we actively discipline mental fitness.
At CrossFit Bury, the nature of our training challenges the body, while testing the mind and spirit. Everything we do serves a greater purpose and is intentional. We believe that by getting strong, fast, and mentally tough our athletes' overall work ethic, integrity, courage and capacity for a powerful life is increased, WOD by WOD.
We also offer, on top of our CrossFit coaching, nutrition guidance (on request) and outsourced meal prep.
CROSSFit IS A WAY OF LIFE. YOU EAT WELL, YOU TRAIN HARD, YOU PUSH YOURSELF. IT TEACHES YOU SO MUCH MORE
CrossFit Games Champion Ben Smith, 2015 Fittest Man On Earth
"I joined Crossfit Bury in November 2017. I wanted something that would challenge me but also fit into my busy schedule. Crossfit Bury ticked all of those boxes and more!
Everyone has been so welcoming and I feel like a real part of the gym.
I can see the changes in my body already and my form has improved beyond what I thought was possible thanks to Frenchi.
Definitely give this place a go! You won’t regret it!"
"I've been going to CrossFit Bury since it opened and I love it. As soon as I walked in the door both Frenchi and Aimée were nothing but friendly and welcoming and made me feel at ease right away. I find the coaching from Frenchi of a very high quality, he takes time, not just in the fundamentals, to make sure you have the basics down before moving on to more complex movements or lifting heavier. In every session there is the choice to scale down the workout if you cannot do the movements.
The other members are supportive in helping you get to the end of the workout and in other case you will encourage the others and get them to the end. It's a community at the end of the day!
I definitely recommend coming down and giving it a shot."
"I've been coming to CrossFit Bury since February 2017 and have lost 12% body fat and over a stone in weight without any changes to my diet going from a small 14 to an 8/10. I love that much of the training is weight based and am seeing dramatic changes in my body shape. I have visible tone in my arms, back and shoulders and even have some abs peeking through.
The sessions are varied and no two days are ever the same so it never gets boring. I get a real thrill from gaining strength and seeing the weight I can lift increasing steadily. It's amazing what an intense cardio workout you get from the daily WOD and it's a real sense of achievement when you complete it. The class sizes are small and friendly so it's easy to ask for assistance and plenty of time is spent on technique.
There's a great community at the box with members of all shapes, sizes and age - CrossFit really is for everyone. "
I decided to join CrossFit Bury to keep my fitness levels up outside of hockey season as I was struggling to find motivation and come up with workouts at my standard gym. I've always considered myself one of the less fit players on the hockey team however following a recent fitness test in prep for preseason I finished TOP 3 in all areas (agility, sprints and jump- max force/ max power output), with my 0-10 meter sprint and jump/ max force & power achieving within the bracket of the UK National hockey team data. I was amazed! The comments from our fitness coach were 'you have no particular area of weakness, keep doing what you're doing'! - all I'm doing is CrossFit!
Since starting my CrossFit journey 3 months ago my weight has stayed with a lb or 2 which was really frustrating at first especially as I got 'happy fat' after getting married last August. However when I compared photos I took of myself in March to photos taken at the beginning of June my body shape has completely changed, I look slimmer, am more toned, have smoother curves, my bums had a lift and I'm getting definition.
At CrossFit Bury the workouts are set so you don't have to think, the group is small so you get 121 time with the coach, the atmosphere is great, the camaraderie gets you through every workout and the feeling of achievement keeps you going back.
I'd recommend becoming part of the CrossFit Bury team to anyone at any level of fitness- there is no judgement- only motivation, everyone is at different levels and you're only competing against yourself.
"I joined CrossFit Bury after my free taster session. The first session was hard but so enjoyable. I have joined a gym and been to classes in the past but have always given up after a few weeks because I felt like I was going it alone. It's the total opposite at CrossFit Bury. Firstly, it is VERY different to anything I have done before but that's what keeps it interesting and enjoyable for me. Secondly, I am not alone. Everyone is at different levels, everyone is learning all the time and you feel part of a team. I highly recommend it to anyone. It's fun and gets you fit."
"Great Box with great people. My husband has been trying to persuade me to do Crossfit for over 3 years, since starting in January  there is no looking back! Wish I had listened to him now! Wouldn't be without it, and for the first time in 6 years, after 2 kids, I'm going to be happy in a bikini (no tankini's!) this summer!!! Try it...you just might like it!!! "
"I joined CrossFit Bury after starting CrossFit at another affiliate. There is a great atmosphere, and not only have I made great new friends, I also enjoy going to this box even more. I hardly miss a session now as I'm so excited about going to each one. I have been able to push myself further than I thought I could through Frenchi's excellent training programme and coaching."
After 2 and a half month, we were chuffed to received some feedback: "Amazing news from my Transplant Nurses at Hope Hospital. My kidney function has got even better and my blood sugar readings which were high and showed me I was at risk of diabetes have dropped back to normal levels. This is all down to WODs at Crossfit Bury. It’s given me even more incentive to work harder 💪💪"
I started at crossfit Bury in June. Frenchi is very good at teaching you the different types of lifts.He is great at pushing you to your limits.I feel like my strength is improving already and my confidence is growing too.The people are amazing too, so friendly and welcoming.I started with 1/2 sessions a week but have now committed to 3 days a week. If you are looking for something to challenge you and push you to your limit then definitely try Crossfit Bury.
"After my first month at Bury CrossFit I thought it was time for a fresh review. The level of detail and programming of each session is second to none. The focus on technique, correct range of motion and that balance of strength and fitness leaves you walking away with a renewed sense of energy. Yes the session's are challenging, yes they are hard, but you have a dedicated coached constantly by your side, offering support, encouragement and applying a keen eye of detail with the way you perform.
In my first month I've seen an increase with my muscular endurance, an increase in my cardiovascular fitness, adding muscle mass and a reduction in body fat. For £65 per month CrossFit Bury is an absolute bargain.
Why not give the free taster session a go and see for yourself."
After 6 months, she told us "Hi Frenchi, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support and guidance. Crossfit is one of the hardest things Ive ever done and at times its really challenged me. Your support, positive reinforcement and general funniness has kept me engaged and wanting to return each week. Thank you"
So glad i found this little box that has the biggest heart. I needed a box to go to while i was home for a few weeks. Crossfit Bury welcomed me in and i enjoyed every minute (Even the push presses and overhead squats). �
A wonderful box with a super friendly community and fantastic coach. Couldn't recommend it anymore.
Amazing box full of great people who support and encourage you every step of the way. The coaching standard is first class Frenchi knows his stuff and is constantly monitoring you to ensure you keep good form and use correct technique. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 8 meaning it’s more like personal training but without the cost. I’ve got to say after just over a year at Crossfit Bury I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been and I’m loving how my body looks.
I joined CrossFit Bury in April this year after many failed attempts at going to gyms as you feel very much on your own and no real motivation. However since joining CrossFit Bury I have never felt more welcome , motivated and determined, with the added bonus of being made to feel like part of this fab group of people. I am by no means anywhere near peak fitness (hence trying to get fit) but in the couple of months I have been going here, the improvements I have seen in myself have been fab. The coaching by Frenchie is amazing, as he is able to understand the level you are at and work with you to scale the workout to your level, but at the same time give you the encouragement to push yourself to the next level. So as crazy as it may seem that give everything you have in the sessions till you can’t give any more , minutes later I am then already looking forward to the next session.
