THERE is a new buzz around town about the group fit­ness craze com­ing from the new state-of-the-art CrossFit 4802 fa­cil­ity in Carlo Drive, Cannonvale.

The fa­cil­ity opened its doors on Mon­day and will be hold­ing an of­fi­cial open day this Satur­day from 10am.

The busi­ness is owned and op­er­ated by hus­band and wife team Kyle and Bek Teale, who made it their mis­sion to be the first CrossFit af­fil­i­ate in the Whit­sun­days.

The cou­ple launched their busi­ness in Oc­to­ber last year and due to ex­po­nen­tial growth of CrossFit mem­bers, were pleased to have the op­por­tu­nity to re­lo­cate to their new fa­cil­ity.

The open air fa­cil­ity boasts more than 220m2 of gym floor­ing which in­cludes a wide range of fit­ness equip­ment, five weightlift­ing plat­forms, an ar­ray of Olympic weightlift­ing bars, row­ers, a Glute-Ham De­vel­oper (GHD) and cus­tom ply­o­met­ric boxes.

There is also a func­tional re­cep­tion/con­sul­ta­tion area, bath­room, kitchen and mem­bers only re­lax­ation space.

The open day will be open to all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity and there will be a range of give­aways and lucky door prizes up for grabs.

Guests are in­vited to watch cur­rent CrossFit 4802 ath­letes give demon­stra­tions of WOD’s (work out of the day) and spe­cial rates on in­duc­tion pack­ages will be avail­able for those sign­ing up on the day.

Teale said CrossFit was a dy­namic and ef­fec­tive way to work­out and had been a big hit in all ma­jor cities around Aus­tralia.

“You see re­sults in yourself re­ally quickly and ev­ery day is a dif­fer­ent work­out which keeps things in­ter­est­ing,” he said.
