  • Liam Mcbarron (20 years old)

    I rock up to the 5:30am classes most mornings. I have been doing CrossFit for almost 4 years now. I chose to go to CrossFit JAK Elite as the coaches go an extra mile, always dropping knowledge on nutrition and training. There is a new challenge every day, with constantly varied movements in weightlifting, gymnastics, and cardio. I would recommend CrossFit Jak Elite to anyone who enjoys a challenge and committed to stepping outside their comfort zone.

  • Genevieve Digregorio (Business Owner)

    I have been doing CrossFit for 18 months. I heard really good things about JAK from my colleagues seeing them return to the office absolutely shattered and covered in sweat. I had a lot trouble finding a fitness routine that I would enjoy and could stick to and JAK elite was the perfect fit.
    I enjoy the vibe at JAK. The atmosphere is so friendly, full of positive energy, music, barbells and loads of fun. All the coaches have the ability to make these intense crazy workouts super fun, pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Coming to CrossFit JAK elite is my hour to myself where I goes into a different mindset and work on my personal goals. I have become stronger and would recommend JAK Elite for anyone who is looking for a challenge, wanting to better themselves. Abby and Karlo are so flexible and able to suit your abilities with progressions.
  • Jenny Johnson, 64 years old

    I’m 64 years old. While I have always been fit and active, I’ve only been doing CrossFit at CrossFit JAK Elite for a little over 2 years.

    I love this type of training. It’s challenging both mentally and physically. Being 64 years old, I know the importance of keeping active, and especially the importance of applying weight-bearing movements to my exercise regime. Weight-bearing exercises are essential for the more matured aged, as it keeps bone density levels high and increases longevity. ‘Use it, or lose it’ is my motto, and though I’ve had a full knee replacement, CrossFit training has allowed me to remain active, build my muscle mass and decrease my body fat percentage – three very essential ingredients needed as we age.

    CrossFit JAK does not discriminate against age or ability. They have a very encouraging and inviting box. If movements/exercise need to be modified to suit certain abilities, then this is readily applied and encouraged. Abby and Karlo are extremely good at their craft. They continually encourage, motivate and congratulate all members.

    I must admit, I was a little nervous about starting CrossFit originally. I thought that I may be ‘too old’ or ‘too weak’ to do most of the movements. My thinking was incorrect. I’ve been challenged mentally and physically with every component of CrossFit – cardio, gymnastics and strength. Wall balls, Skin the Cat, handstands and deadlifts are normal now.

    I believe CrossFit has improved my quality of life as well as increasing my life expectancy. Combine this with great trainers and members having fun and being active together, and you’re on a winning combination!!!!
