The idea for CrossFit Urban EDGE (or as we like to call it, our “box”) was based on our individual CrossFit journeys. After doing CrossFit for a number of years while living active lifestyles, we noticed significant improvements in our fitness levels and overall mental and physical well-being. Some of us who are athletes observed that CrossFit markedly improved our endurance and performance in our chosen sport.
It is our passion and belief in CrossFit which led us to create our box in order to help people like you discover your personal EDGE – getting you to feeling, looking, and thinking your best on your own terms and at your own pace.

With Crossfit, there’s always something to look forward to & challenges to power through everyday, from humbling experiences like learning the highly technical “snatch” to the most uplifting moments of friends cheering me up as I did my very first ring muscle up.
Three years into Crossfit and I see myself stronger, more disciplined and yet I can only see a vision of me- even stronger, faster and healthier. The effects of Crossfit positively expressed in other aspects of my life- the surge of endorphins de-stress me, the strength & endurance helped boost my performance in sports & the positive energy helped me manage work better. By being a CrossFit coach, I am excited to share to other people this life-changing experience called CrossFit and I am committed to giving my best for the pursuit of other people’s personal progress.”

For me, it means living my days full of energy, traveling the world, learning something new every day. However, I’m a classic case of a person trapped in the wrong body. I have always wanted to do a lot of sports, but I come with a baggage of being tiny and weak, and with it comes learning things the hard way. The fire in my heart has always been stronger than the muscles in my body. Nevertheless, through the years I have found my way to win and level up in Judo, spent 8 years on competitive dragonboat paddling, I’ve bungee jumped from Auckland Harbour Bridge, hang-glided off Tijuca forest in Brazil, surfed in Sri Lanka. I dive, climb walls and trek mountains. Moving to Singapore gave me easy access to wakeboarding and it has become the hardest [extreme] sport I have yet to master. This year, I got my eyes set on tennis, and then through friends I met Crossfit. Finally, it’s time for my muscles to level up!I know I will not be able to do these things forever, as we progress in life and career our days have become more of a juggling act. But I know that I can always keep that passion to stay active and fit. What is the best way to be truly engaged than to open my own box with friends? Do join me in my journey as I get to know Crossfit and its benefits and continue life’s adventures being active fit!”

“CrossFit really is a journey. It’s not the kind of gym you sign up to lose a few Kg for the beach. It is an entirely new approach to fitness and healthy living that can’t help but seep into every aspect of your life. Within the first couple months, I was already seeing so many improvements. I was getting stronger, learning new movements, toning up my body and building up my confidence. It was not easy at the beginning and I often laughed at myself when I was always the last one who finished the WOD. And understandably, all of the ripped super veterans were done far before me…but they had all converted into full on cheerleaders. You’ve got this! You can do this! Come on!…and they all counted down as I finished each one, ending the workout gasping, high-fiving, and feeling victorious.
CrossFit never failed to surprise me about what else my body could do… I still have learnt many different movements which I never imagined I could do before.. I practiced whenever and wherever I can, either it’s a lunge around the living room or a handstand in the office. I went to the box five-days-on-one-day-off and loved every sweaty moment.
Being part of a passionate team to build CrossFit Urban Edge is one of the best decisions of my life. I really hope you will see our box just as how we see it: it’s a community of support, aspiration, encouragement to learn and discover a better self.”
