I started training with Graeme because I was sick of the same old gym classes and getting no results. Now I look forward to training; it’s always different and interesting. I can lift more, do more and feel fitter. In the last two months I’ve lost 6kgs. I’m aiming for 6 more but really I’m just happier already. Zenardia
As a relatively experienced weightlifter and martial artist of over 10 years, I was experiencing a real lack of enthusiasm and motivation to train in recent months. I’d always been interested in CrossFit, however I found opportunities to participate limited either due to fees or distance. Then one day I saw a black Toyota with ‘CrossFit Maroubra’ splashed across it. I ‘Googled’ the name and found they were located nearby.
I went to see them that afternoon. After a pleasant chat with the owners Lynn and Graeme, I agreed to do a couple of free sessions to see if it was for me. Sure enough it was! I realised that after the first session. I signed up immediately and have been very consistent ever since.
It’s a great facility but the best thing about the place is the owners/trainers. Graeme is an excellent lifting coach with all the time in the world for his clients. His input is very comprehensive and effective. The advice he offers is better than anything I’ve received or experienced in my previous years of training. He is great at scaling the WODs to suit the individual, so you still get a great work-out that is within your capacity but still gets you out of your comfort zone.
I have found every single workout both exhaustive and empowering and leaves me wanting more and looking forward to the next one – a feeling I have not experienced in several years.
Lynn is a gentle soul with a great understanding of anatomy, massage and recuperation techniques. Her advice for warm-downs has allowed me to recover a lot quicker than I used to from workouts which then enables me to back-up day after day, inching me closer to my fitness goals.
I would recommend CrossFit Maroubra to anyone interested in improving their fitness. Suf
Health and fitness has been part of my life since a very young age. I practised Thai boxing for 10 years and competed in endurance adventure races. CrossFit provides a robust and complex way to integrate strength, cardio and functional movement training into the one high-intensity program.
CrossFit Maroubra is a professional and friendly gym that caters for all levels of experience. Graeme and Lynn provide an excellent and mature attitude and focus on mentoring and training so everybody achieves their goals. Adam
Joining crossfit at 63 years of age was always going to be a challenge; challenging because of my age and age-related body changes and injuries, the new language (WOD, burpees etc.) and my personal embarrassment of recognising the limit of what I could do against those much younger and fitter.
It has been a journey of surprise. I say that because I became stronger very quickly and I can do much more than I anticipated. My workouts are modified in ways that allow me to be part of the group, doing whatever happens to be the WOD. I’m usually scared before each session but I show up anyway. I tell my kids I love it, not that I’m scared. The scary part is about taking on anything that is new and different.
Carrying injury, as is often the case if one is older, was problematic for me, but not for the trainers. The skill, knowledge and professionalism of Graeme and Lynn has made me feel safe and comfortable within the CrossFit setting. I don’t get to slouch and I am pushed and encouraged to be the best I can be on any given day. There is a skill to engaging people in a way that is unobtrusive and quietly positive. Graeme and Lynn both have theses qualities. For that, I will always be grateful. Helen
I have really enjoyed my time training with you guys and want to thank you, and especially Graeme, for helping me get my health and fitness back on track. If you ever get a CrossFit Box up and running I’ll be the first to sign up! I also want to let you know that as a trainer Graeme has been amazing. He has inspired me to press on with this journey and shown me that I can do things I never thought possible. I can’t thank him enough. Jon-Paul
After almost one year with CrossFit Maroubra I have grown stronger, significantly fitter and far more knowledgeable about a wide range of fitness topics, from weightlifting to fascial fitness (thanks Lynn!). I’ve even discovered a lot about my own body, finding imbalances and areas that need improvement, which Graeme and Lynn have helped identify and then provided routines specific to my needs.
Overall, the main benefits of CrossFit Maroubra are the serious yet fun and friendly atmosphere, and the badass workouts which are generally hell, but once done (when you’re lying on the floor recovering) provide a great feeling of achievement.Ed
