THE Westmorland Crossfit Centre picked up success at the Bessemer Games in Whitehaven – with four of its eight teams earning first and second place finishes.

There were also top six spots for the other four teams for the centre, based at Aynam Road, Kendal, .

Delighted head coach Liam Dobson said: “We used this competition to give people a taste of what a CrossFit competition feels like.

"The atmosphere was surreal, with people of all ages and experiences in one gym competing against each other, but it was a wonderful day for the Westmorland team, with so many members doing things they never thought were possible”

The Westmorland Crossfit Centre is the only facility in Kendal which offers a free taster session for anyone interested and where there is no sign-up fee for CrossFit. To find out more, call 01539-731554, search for Westmorland Crossfit on Facebook, or go to the website at
