Blackband CrossFit


Our Box is maybe not as big as some other boxes, but we have a great community and everybody is welcome with a big hug.

Our Box is located in an Industrial Space where we can push our prowlers, drop our barbells and turn the music on as loud as possible. We try to do as much as possible for the CrossFit Community in our Area by visiting other Boxes regularly and working out together. After that its time to have a beer and a barbecue together. When you are hungry after training, we show you the best burger in town. You need a place to sleep? No problem, we will have a couch for you.

We think that CrossFit is by far the most complete sport that you can do for your overall fitness and health. Of course some of us are competing in CrossFit competitions, but we think that CrossFit is for everybody and that´s what is most important for us. Our goal is to provide a complete fitness programme for everybody based on the CrossFit principles of Mechanics-Consistency and Intensity. If you want to follow your own programming just write us an E-Mail, we offer open Gym classes twice a week.

Most of our coaches train together in the morning, so just feel free to ask if you can drop in when you are an experienced CrossFitter.

Inspiring and motivating

I'm a CrossFit coach since September 2012.  I started CrossFit in 2011 at CrossFit am Rhein in Düsseldorf.  It was always an 1 hour drive for me, but im happy that I started at this box.  We opened our Box in February 2014 and we are very happy that we made this decision.  

Favorite CrossFit exercise: 
I love handstands or handstand walking on special places like supermarkets ;-). Additionally, I love heavy squats. I have the goal to squat 100x100kg one time in my life.

Great community

I met Tim actually when we both where drop ins at another box. He invited me to come visit his box and I did. It was really a though WOD that day with famers walk and sled push and it was hot, but it was great! The team was cheering for everybody and being there felt very natural and not like being the "visitor". I can highly recommend Tim's box, they live the CrossFit community mindset combined with great and experienced coaches.
