Every single person is an individual with their own specific health and fitness needs. Our team has a wide range of skills to help you to be able to overcome whatever challenges you may have. You may have felt in the past that you were in the ‘too hard basket’ to use a regular gym – here you will find that the ‘too hard basket’ is where we excel!
Helping people with disabilities improve their health and achieve independence is one of the cornerstones of our organisation. We work with both adults and kids to increase their strength, coordination, balance, stamina and general health. Because we work in the non-clinical environment of a CrossFit gym, there is no separation between a person with or without a disability. We treat each person the same and work to their own individual abilities.
Each persons challenges are unique and varied. If you have a rare disability we haven’t worked with before then we will go out of our way to research and up skill on how to help you best.

Joint or Muscle Pain/Injury
Our team is highly experienced at working with muscle and joint injuries including lower back pain, shoulders, knees, ankles and wrists.

Falls and Balance
A fall in later life is one of the most significant causes of decreased quality of life. By increasing strength, coordination, balance and flexibility; the chance of a fall is greatly reduced.
