CrossFit Geelong is a purpose built CrossFit facility and is the home of the CrossFit Method in Geelong.
We are the ONLY CrossFit Affiliate in Geelong. Please be aware that many personal training studios & gyms claim to do ‘CrossFit’ but we are the ONLY licensed affiliate in Geelong along with the only purpose built CrossFit Facility in this region.
We do NOT do Zumba, boxercise or spin classes. We focus all of our energy and time into doing one thing and we do it very well. Our clients are people from different age groups and from all walks of life– some are athletes, some are not. We have people who want something new, we have a kid group and everyday people who require attention to each and every factor.
Our training can be scaled to any level of fitness. Come and join our community and get see what makes us different to a traditional gym.
Who are we?
CrossFit Geelong is led by a team of trainers brought together by the belief in the foundations of CrossFit. Our goal is to make you a well-balanced individual by training you to become stronger, leaner, fitter, and faster. We do this by applying the proven CrossFit method of “constantly varied, functional movement, executed at high intensity.” And because everyone at CrossFit is treated like and athlete, the results we see are dramatic! We promote an atmosphere of support and camaraderie at our facility, and find this a potent motivator in driving clients to achieve their goals.
CrossFit is an empirically driven, clinically tested and community developed strength and conditioning program that seeks to elicit as broad as adaptation response as possible, utilising training formats derived from Gymnastics, Olympic Weightlifting, Sprinting and Combat disciplines. We focus on instruction the importance of proper movement through full ranges of motion and functional strength exercises. This produces what we believe to be a fitness level that is highly transferable to all athletic pursuits as well as daily functional physical tasks. CrossFit program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Our program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for men, women, children, elderly individuals with heart disease and professional rugby players.

How do we do it?
World Class Fitness in 100 words:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep food intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts; dead lift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, one must master the basics of gymnastics; pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Similarly, one must also bike, run, swim, and row, training hard and fast.
Mix these elements five or six days per week in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.

Why We Do It?
Here’s some insight from Coach Glassman (CrossFit CEO) on the intent of CrossFit:
“CrossFit is in large part derived from several simple observations garnered through hanging out with athletes for thirty years and willingness, if not eagerness, to experiment coupled with a total disregard for conventional wisdom. Let me share some of the more formative of these observations:
- Gymnasts learn new sports faster than other athletes.
- Olympic lifters can apply more useful power to more activities than other athletes.
- Powerlifters are stronger than other athletes.
- Sprinters can match the cardiovascular performance of endurance athletes, even at extended efforts.
- Endurance athletes are woefully lacking in total physical capacity.
- With high carb diets you either get fat or weak.
- Bodybuilders can’t punch, jump, run, or throw like athletes can.
- Segmenting training efforts delivers a segmented capacity.
- Optimizing physical capacity requires training at unsustainable intensities.
- The world’s most successful athletes and coaches rely on exercise science the way deer hunters rely on the accordion.
