HealthCity launches Crosscity programme


HealthCity International last month launched a new programme, Crosscity, across all of its French clubs. The small group training concept


picks up on the popularity of CrossFit, incorporating real-life functional moves that use body weight and/or small pieces of kit such as kettlebells and medicine balls. However, where CrossFit can be seen to be catering more for elite competitors, HealthCity has specifically designed Crosscity to be accessible to all members – whatever their age or gender. The full-body workout changes every


week and lasts for 50 minutes: 15-minute warm-up, 25-minute workout, 10-minute stretch. “You always work in a small group, which is great for building a sense of community among the members,” says a spokesperson for HealthCity France. “We’ve also introduced an element of friendly competition, with performances written up on a board to encourage people to push themselves to improve.”
