We have 3 Core Programs, ION60 (CrossFit), ION45 and ION30 allowing our members to fit a workout into their busy work and life schedules. These classes are suitable for a wide range of fitness abilities enabling members to have a variety workout choice from day to day.  We also offer our ION Speciality classes in addition to our core programs.

ION60 (General Strength AND Conditioning)

Our 60 min General Strength and Conditioning class (CrossFit) has the objective of improving all aspects of fitness, helping individuals achieve optimal health and performance within their day to day lives.

ION60 classes are total body workouts that incorporates resistance training, bodyweight exercises and more traditional cardio training (Bike, Row, Run).  All our classes follow a 4-6 week structured program with progressions for all levels of fitness abilities from the complete novice to the advanced trainer.  

ION Beginners Course Required (2 sessions)
ION45 (functional circuits) 

Our popular 45 min, highly energised Functional Circuits class uses a wide range of low skilled, full body exercises, scalable to match the needs of individuals. Sessions will utilise cardio equipment along with other full body exercises such as Kettlebells, Slam Balls, Sand Bags, Skipping, Box Jumps/Step Ups and Bodyweight exercises.

ION30 (total body conditioning) 

Our short, 30 min ‘express’ CrossFit class allows members to fit in a highly effective workout, in a short space of time. We recognise that many of our members have demanding careers and busy family lives, so having the option to be in and out of the gym within half an hour can, at times, be very useful.

ION BEGINNERS COURSE 

Our ION Unlimited (including ION60) membership requires completion of 2 x 1 hour Beginners Sessions. These sessions are completed on a 1:1 basis at a time of your convenience with one of our ION coaches. Each session will introduce you the exercises we use regularly in classes. You and the coach will review movement, discuss our style of training, tackle specific questions, and set you up for success at ION.
