You could be forgiven in thinking that just keeping fit is not a sport, however there are many different types of fitness activities that are considered to be a sport and clubs exist to support this and competitions are organized for those who wish to take part. Crossfit is one such example which is taking off in popularity across the UK. More about this can be found HERE.
There is a recent force sports section which is based around fitness and principles of CrossFit which is looking for new members to get involved. The PSUK are considering whether to make Crossfit an authorized police sport event as well. There is a weekly session on Monday at Netley from 2020.

15 members of CrossFit Hantspol attended the PSUK National Crossfit event held by Devon and Cornwall Police. Teams of 2 males and 2 females competed against teams from 27 other police forces through 2 days of tough workouts. The teams held their own and pushed their limits throughout the competition and showed what Hampshire staff could do. Overall one of the teams finished in 6th place in the elite category, another in 10th place for the intermediate category and then 6th, 9th and 12th in the Novice category.
The biggest achievement was CrossFit Hantspol being presented with the Spirit Of The Competition for such a strong and enthusiastic attendance. Head Coach Leigh Walker was also presented with an award for his work within CrossFit and recognition that Hampshire is miles ahead of other forces with how we run the club.
‘I am so proud of the team; no matter the member’s ability level, the competition pushed their resilience and fitness. CrossFit is such a great fitness model which allows everyone to train intensely; but movements and skills can be scaled no matter your experience level so that people don’t feel out their depth. My pride has been echoed through the award presented to the team’.
If anyone is interested in trying a session or joining the team for competitions then please get in contact with Leigh Walker or email the CrossFit Hantspol Mailbox.
