Crossfit Telefonplan

If you’re looking for a traditional gym with a wide range, you should probably not go for Crossfit Telephone Plan. Because as the name reveals, you get Crossfit all the way.

If you want to build muscle and burn calories, you have come to the right place.

During a workout at Crossfit Telefonplan, you perform various functional movements under high intensity to achieve physical performance. You lift, throw, pull, jump, push, drag, carry, and run. Fast and heavy. In other words, you’re guaranteed to sweat a lot. But also feel the joy, the community, and the challenge. And much more. Since everyone gets individual coaching, you work out based on your own terms, but together with others, so it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or you’ve been a Crossfit fan for a long time.
