WHY BASE 3

OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES

We realise that everyone is different – we have different goals and abilities, and we enjoy different things – so we offer a range of different programs and services. Each week our talented coaches get together to discuss and design all of our programs and classes – they incorporate a variety of exercises and use a variety of equipment to keep your training fresh, fun, challenging and effective (exactly the way it should be!) Whether you are a CrossFit diehard, a runner, a new Mum, or a busy commuter, we will safely and progressively take your fitness to the next level.

BEGINNER-FRIENDLY

We want everyone to be able to join our classes, and design them so that they can be scaled to suit any level, even a complete beginner! Our coaches are always happy to adjust exercises, or intensity, so that you can conquer any workout.

QUALITY COACHING

Our coaches share over 30 years of health and fitness experience and have a range of skillsets and interests – from strength, to endurance, to mobility. Together, we make an awesome team on the quest to helping you reach your goals, no matter how unique. Our priority is to ensure safe and effective movement, to prescribe appropriate progression, and to educate members about how to manage their health and fitness. Our job is to help you succeed, and we love doing it.

OUR COMMUNITY

Our community is the best part about us. On top of wanting to be fitter and stronger and to live a healthier life, they also love to challenge themselves, enjoy a good laugh, and will always support and encourage each other. It motivates and inspires us, and we know it’ll do the same for you (it’s kind of contagious).

OUR FACILITY

We love our gym – it has tons of natural light, plenty of space, and is really welcoming - you should come and check it out!

  • Three separate areas (“boxes”) enable us to run two classes simultaneously whilst still offering space for individual training.

  • A 25m turf track divides the room and accommodates some of our hardest, yet most enjoyable, sled workouts.

  • We have all of the tools you could possibly need to develop your fitness (we are fully kitted out).

  • The Chill-out area is a great place to hang out, and we offer free Wi-Fi for members, enabling them to send a few emails while they wait.

  • Our beautiful bathrooms have plenty of changing space, and enough showers to get you ready to face the day (perfect for those who train before work or who do our lunch-time class).

  • You will always find a parking spot at Mazaya Business Avenue.
