What are we about

Ballistix CrossFit Somerset West was the 3rd affiliate to open in South Africa (read about our journey since 2009), now located in Somerset West, at the Pines Shopping Centre (next to Hillsong Church) @ the Somerset Mall.

We treat each of our members as individuals and have a vested interest in everyone’s success. Our goal and drive is to make them better at life, be it a husband / wife / father / mother / CEO / athlete / professional / (fill in blank).

We understand that everyone has their own reason for training and we also know that achieving your goal is made easier and more enjoyable when surrounded by a community that supports, encourages and motivates.

Why would you not want that?


In short, it is a program that gets results!

CrossFit aims to develop the broadest sense of fitness in everyone. This is achieved by doing movements that are most natural/functional to us (pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting and throwing).

Workouts are combined in a mix of body-weight exercises, weightlifting, kettlebells, jumping, running, skipping and rowing, so as to constantly change and challenge body AND mind.

Workouts are performed at high intensities, but intensities that are suited specifically to where you are at. So CrossFit is for EVERYONE!

You are always guided by high caliber coaches that lead you closer to your health and fitness goals. CrossFit is difficult, but gets results, which makes it extremely rewarding.

CrossFit is not like anything else you may have done, which makes it fun. CrossFit is a community that inspires, motivates and lifts you to levels you never thought possible.
