It is fully equipped with aerobic equipment, free weights and machine weights.

The team prepares work out schedules for the players, improving their strength, power and aerobic conditioning.
 

                          Crossfit

On average, the players will train 3-4 times per week, depending on the game schedule.
The proper amount of rest is given to the players, ensuring they are energized and focused for all games

CrossFit combines body weight movements (pushups, pull-ups, sit-ups, squats, and everyone’s favorite burpees) with Olympic weight lifting (deadlifts, front/back/overhead, squats, cleans, jerks, the snatch and the globo-gym favorite, the bench press).  It is always changing and it is always challenging.
