Our facility is filled with a collection of equipment that will get you into the best shape of your life if you are prepared to work hard; pull-up rigs, kettlebells, sledges, barbells, ropes and even the odd tyre or two.

Work out of the day. This is the "regular CrossFit class". A blend of strength, cardio and gymnastic elements in a mix of patterns for time, reps or rounds. A one hour class with a warm up, focus section, WOD and cool down.
Building strength and control through bodyweight movements. We look to become masters of the basics whilst developing more complex skills. We hang, push, pull, balance, roll and jump.
This is a class based on our mainstream programming, appropriately modified and scaled to suit the younger generation and to also be inclusive for all abilities. Covering all the aspects of Crossfit we give the teens the opportunity to learn the basics and build their skill set whilst having fun and being active.
This is a class designed to be fun and to keep kids engaged. We want to encourage them to be active and to find the love of fitness at an early age. In each session, they will learn some of the basic Crossfit movements alongside lots of fun and games. They will run, jump, lift, and swing whilst learning coordination and body control.
An open session for the more advanced members to practice and lift at their own pace within the facility.
Olympic lifting has no equal when it comes to changing your holistic strength and fitness. Moving from the base lifts like the deadlift and squat - Olympic lifts, the snatch and clean & jerk develop speed, coordination, flexibility and total body strength like no other movements.
Aerobic capacity class
An endurance-based class aimed at improving the capacity of your aerobic energy pathway. Perfect for those training for marathons, triathlons, or just those simply looking to sweat in a low-skill setting. We utilise sustainable, repeatable efforts on the bikes, rowers and ski ergs and combine them with rowing, burpees and skipping to build your engine in a fun and encouraging setting.
To stretch, work on flexibility and help any niggels or injuries. This hour session will leave you feeling supple.
