What We Offer


Our CrossFit classes are designed to make you fitter, faster and stronger. In each session, we use the CrossFit methodology of mixing gymnastics, weightlifting and cardio-based exercises. We vary our classes daily, changing the workouts  and performing each at a high intensity. We use functional movements such as squats and dead-lifts to promote longevity in our members’ lives. Our sessions are universally scalable to each individual irrespective of ability.


Our high intensity Bootcamp sessions are designed to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness, build lean muscle, lose fat, improve cardiovascular health, boost metabolism and increase endurance. HIIT (high intensity) workouts burn more calories, both during and after the workout than traditional workouts, despite being shorter in duration.


Our personal trainers help our clients achieve their personal goals. We aim to go the extra mile by ensuring our clients receive just as much help and advice outside of the gym as they do in each session. Personal training is ultimately down to the individual and what they want to get out of each session; our job is to make sure this happens.


Our weightlifting classes are for people of all abilities, from novices to competitive weightlifters. Our fully qualified Level 2 weightlifting coach will teach you how to perform the snatch and clean & jerk. You’ll learn the fundamentals and only increase weight when you become confident and show you can safely perform these movements. We are the only club in the upper Rhondda area with fully qualified coaches.


Our yogability classes are creative and dynamic, and focus on building mental and physical strength. They help build range of motion, and aim to decrease the chance of injury and provide an all over body stretch and workout.


These sessions are primarily designed to ensure each child has fun and interacts with children of their own age. We teach them the basic movements and how to exercise safely under the instruction of our qualified kids’ coach. They gain a better understanding of self-perception while ensuring they stay active.

As a Crossfit Level One Trainer, Jolee firmly believes in taking a multi-dimensional approach to health and incorporating regular exercise, as a fundamental component, into a well-balanced lifestyle to achieve optimal health.

Jolee’s love of sport and exercise includes a long background of gymnastics, county level basketball, athletics at national level, and rugby at premiership and regional standard.

Following a move to Thailand, Jolee discovered CrossFit via a local gym – the class workouts triggering her love for CrossFit.

On her return home, Jolee became a member of CrossFit Initiate and focused on her CrossFit training. She started competing in 2015.

The experience that Jolee achieved in a variety of sports, and the knowledge she gained through her studies, created a passion for sport and fitness which led her to pursue her CrossFit Level 1 Qualification in 2016. She began her HIIT style “Bootcamp” classes in September 2016.

Weightlifting Coach

Anthony has enjoyed sports and fitness from a very young age, initially participating in long distance running and athletics, before moving onto football and rugby.

He enjoyed the training aspect as much as the actual playing and this shows during all his workouts. This was the perfect foundation and easily transferred over to CrossFit and Weightlifting.

Anthony took up CrossFit competitively in 2014. His best achievement to date is a 9th overall finish at the most recent European Championships which is one of the biggest individual competitions in the UK.

His enjoyment for Weightlifting and CrossFit has developed into helping others achieve their goals. While coaching, he focuses on assisting people of all abilities to reach their maximum potential while having fun in the process.

Anthony is highly approachable and always happy to help anyone at anytime.
