How Did WIT Training Score Overall?
The full client experience at WIT Training was impressive, achieving The Fit Guide 4-Star Award.
The class was also very good, winning our Class Experience 4-star Class Experience Award.
The training space was something quite special, especially in such a prime London location. The upstairs retail area was also a nice compliment, with a huge range of quality training gear available. Our coach for the day was clearly very knowledgeable and well versed in Crossfit.
What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“The design of the club was impressive, and the ability to use high-quality Puma weightlifting shoes and Theraguns for free was a big plus.”

What To Expect From A WIT Training Session
The ground floor of the WIT store is home to WIT Crossfit, a spacious, striking training space in St Pauls, London.
WIT’s signature offering is Metcon, which is their Crossfit class which starts with a skill or strength element. For example, you may practice handstand walks as the skill, with suitable regressions for beginners, or a back squat for the strength element
The is followed by a WOD, or ‘Workout of the Day’, which typically combines cardio and strength in a format that encourages maximum output and effort.
Other offerings include gymnastics, strength and endurance classes, as well as personal training for those who want to perfect a skill, or get a proper introduction to Crossfit at their pace.
The Reception Service
We were unable to reach the branch as no phone number was listed online.
In the club, the staff was professional and made us feel welcome and ready for the session. There was a comfortable waiting area and a dedicated Theragun section for participants to try the massage gun tech, which was a particularly nice touch.
On enquiring about packages and continuing our training, we were told to scan a QR code for options and to purchase.
The Class Experience
WIT Training received The Fit Guide 4-star Class Experience Award, making it one of London’s stand-out offerings.
The coach made a real effort to connect with everyone beforehand and understand their ability and experience level, which was a good start. Our Metcon class was focused on a specific skill, the handstand push up, which provided a real challenge.
Throughout the class, the coach used simple, helpful cues when demonstrating the exercises, without using too many words or jargon. He was energetic and upbeat, and danced to the music during some of the work sets, whilst still keeping a keen eye on the class.
A little more focus on the first timers and beginners would have helped improve the experience for us, as we were very new to the skill of the day.
The Equipment And Studio
The training area was well lit and spacious, with some interesting features such as ceiling lights and motivational quotes on the walls. Overall, the space was impressive and had a strong sense of brand.
The Facilities And Public Areas
Shower towels were provided free of charge, but workout towels were not. Lockers were provided, although you had to bring your own padlock. Free water refill stations were not available.
Overall the facility was impressive, with a nice aesthetic, a comfortable waiting area and a dedicated Theragun area for participants of the class. There were also Puma Fuse 2 shoes available to use for free. The changing rooms had on brand artwork and quotes displayed, which was a nice touch, but overall they did not match the high standards of the other public areas.
Digital And Technology
The online booking process was simple and smooth, and the website contained a lot of interesting information about the club. There was no element of technology integrated into the class experience.
