Our philosophy: Create your own health

CrossFit Eudokia Life Science & Healthy Ageing Academy is founded from the belief that everyone can live a healthy life, but it is not equally easy for everyone. We are convinced everyone has the qualities and potential to reach goals and dreams.  CrossFit Eudokia is an Academy. We focus on your personal growth and coach you how unleash your potential and create your own health, fitness, strength and happiness in a way that fits your life.

Our guiding principles

Our approach is routed from the CrossFit philosophy and the concept of Positive Health: a dynamic concept in which taking control over your life and developing the strength and power to improve the quality of life are key. It is about resilience and adaptability to all the physical, mental and emotional challenges life throws at you. In CrossFit we say: be ready to expect the unexpected.

We are deeply convinced that independence is the key to lasting results in health, fitness and happiness. Learning how you can live healthy on your own power and develop healthy habits for life, is Healthy Ageing. It is about maintaining and even increasing work capacity across broad time and modal domains throughout life. That is CrossFit.
