At CrossFit Kinsale we promote Safety and Full Range of Movement when learning any new skill. Believe it or not there is more to a box jump that simply jumping on a box, we need to ensure that we push off both feet, keep the heels in and that there is full extension of the hip at the top of the movement. Upon completion of the fundamentals course at CrossFit Kinsale a member will be well equipped to safely and competently progress to the main stream classes
