It is time to update you on exciting changes but first a quick look back:
ChalkBox was established in April 2014 our love for CrossFit started in the garage and soon Coach Agnes wanted to share her passion with others and she is still going after it!
Take a quick look at these clips going back to the beginning and read more here about the story behind ChalkBox

You will receive detailed updates in your inbox to what this all means for you. In this post we update you on ChalkFit.
Exciting changes to set up of ChalkFit
We are excited to announce that Coach Katie will be leading the ChalkFit sessions & same time sad to see Coach Graham going
What does this mean for you?
Coach Katie will be in charge of the ChalkFit program with the focus to improve your engine. There will be MORE SESSIONS on the schedule too!
The goal of ChalkFit is to develop your conditioning, build a strong aerobic base (crucial to CrossFit and other sports) as well as building your anaerobic capacity, thus improving your endurance and stamina.
Basically, our ChalkFit Class is ‘simpler’ than our regular CrossFit classes as it will not contain complex movements (like snatches or cleans) or super heavy weights/barbell movements (though we will use kettlebells, dumbbells, wall balls, sandbags etc).
This is a great session to work on your engine to get better at CrossFit and also very suitable for beginners.
Movements will include bodyweight exercises, lots of core, dumbell and kettlebell work and of course, rowing, bike and running! Expect to develop a ‘firing engine’, learn to pace yourself, develop mental toughness and most of all HAVE FUN!
From September we will say goodbye to Coach Graham who will be focussing on training for duathlons in the coming months. Coach Graham worked tirelessly to make ChalkFit as popular as it is now and we are sad to see him go.
