Crossfit is a high intensity, form focused workouts where participants improve power, speed and agility. The main goal is to make your body stronger and more capable of anything that life throws at you. It is about functional fitness which means you become more efficient in your everyday functions like carrying luggages, walking faster, sitting properly, stretching your arms when reaching into something, etc. By doing functional workouts, you also become stronger, leaner and a better person in terms of functionality.
I’ve tried many crossfit gyms before and they are all basically the same to me. All their coaches are good and certified and the work outs are almost the same. It gave me the message that all crossfit boxes were created equal. Perhaps, all boxes follow a certain crossfit standard. But when I tried Primal Ape Crossfit, I told myself that I was wrong. Not to undermine other crossfit boxes, Primal Ape Crossfit’s Box size alone changed the game for me. “At over 1200 sqm, PrimalApe Crossfit is the King Kong of boxes. That means no more filled-up classes and less risk of injury from over-crowding. With that much space – challenging all-weather, 100-meter runs and fast-climbs up 12-foot ropes become reality.” Excerpt from their website, which I totally agree.They also offer spacious locker room and aircon’d comfort rooms which i other boxes do not usually offer. You can sweat all you want during your workout and have a refreshing shower before you head to your office for work.
Aside from their big box, Primal Ape Crossfit also offer two types of classes: the Bootcamp & the Crossfit. Crossfit classes are for more experienced athletes while the Bootcamp is for beginners to crossfit. It is basically like crossfit without weights. It’s effective for weight loss, muscle toning and full body conditioning.
I did a 5 day trial at Primal Ape Crossfit in Pasong Tamo. It was an amazing experience. I enjoyed every single Bootcamp class that I attended. It was a great way to start your morning because they offer 630am boot camp classes. I was very sure that it will help me lose weight if I continue the work out for months. The only thing that prevented me from doing so was the monthly fee of P5,500.00. It was too expensive for me. But if money is not an issue for you, I still recommend Primal Ape Crossfit.
