Discover Crossfit Grovedale

We pride ourselves on not only providing world class fitness training, but also in creating a supportive and motivating environment. A family. The moment you arrive at your first class you will find a community of like-minded people of all ages and body types, committed to working hard and achieving lasting fitness results. We love our people and we love what we do – and that shows on the gym floor.

People First. Fitness Follows.

Most people who make resolutions to get fit or live a healthier lifestyle don’t follow through on their commitment. They can pay the gym membership, wear the right clothes, follow the right instagramers or listen to ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ on repeat, but without this ONE vital ingredient they will fail. To truly follow through on achieving our goals we need coaches and friends to guide, motivate and support us. Without it, people don’t stay accountable to the journey and they give up. We’ve all seen it a thousand times. From the moment you step in for your free no sweat intro at CrossFit Grovedale you will find an inspiring community of people who we are invested in your fitness journey from day one. You’ll find a family.
