The history of CrossFit Serdika begins well before the up-to-date gym in the heart of Sofia. It starts with a number of long-standing friendships and the love, the grit and the passion for sport.
In 2008 Nikolay Atanasov (Koko) returned from Sweden, impressed by the functional training called CrossFit. He managed to spark the interest of his friend from the schoolyard Alexander Zahariev (Sasho) and both started to train literally on the carpet at Sasho’s apartment. Later on Roman Atanasov – Koko’s brother joined. The three became certified CrossFit Level 1 and then Level 2 coaches. They started with an experimental gym at a school facility.
For a couple of years, the experience became so successful and the community grew so big that the scale needed to be upgraded. So, the three friends were joined by the experienced alpine ski racer Nikolay Jordanov who is the founder of HELL SPORT sports club, mainly focused on condition and power training. For several years he also managed to build a cohesive club community.
This is our story, in short. Because the years of friendship and the numerous WODs we have done together cannot be described in a few sentences.
Today, CrossFit Serdika is the only certified CrossFit gym located in the center of Sofia, and there, you will find four certified Level 2 coaches.
