Discover CrossFit Geelong

CrossFit Geelong has, and still works very hard to have one of the most successful CrossFit Boxes in Australia. There is a reason so many people are drawn to us. Our diverse group of members are what drives our box to run like a well-oiled machine. It doesn’t matter what you lift or where you finish in a workout, once you walk out onto our floor, we are all in this together. A great environment builds friendship, and friendship builds a very successful community!

Our Gym

Our facility is second to none, and our attention to detail backs this up. As CrossFit is an affiliated prescription, no two CrossFit Boxes are the same, sporting different coaches, different setups and different programming. The standard held here at CrossFit Geelong has eventuated in our tutoring and business coaching for other affiliates, as well as coaching of other affiliate staff to help improve their CrossFit Boxes.

We are a wholistic training centre combining Exercise, Health & Wellness  and Nutrition to give you a complete experience.

  1. 800 sqm of training area over 3 separate areas.
  2. Open training area while class is on.
  3. Enclosed Soft floor area for mobility and stretching.
  4. M&F Bathrooms with shower facilities
  5. Newtown Mind and Body is beside us housing some of Geelong’s finest practitioners.
  6. Skinny Dippers cafe is also located beside us,  a wholefoods cafe with awesome coffee.

Meet The CrossFit Geelong Team

Corrine Chalmers

Co-owner / Level 1 Certified CrossFit Trainer / Mother & Wife

Corrine is Co-Owner of Geelong’s most successful CrossFit facility, (CrossFit Geelong). Corrine began leading the team when she was only 22! A natural born leader she has 16 years of experience in management and in this time, she has grown the CFG team with her alongside her husband Chris.

Corrine’s own devotion to improving her fitness has rewarded her with multiple visits to Australia’s most recognised national CrossFit competition as a team member of CrossFit Geelong’s elite athletes in 2013 & 2014. Along with being a highly successful personal trainer and CrossFit Coach, Corrine has predominantly moved her skills into leading her team. For the past 6 years, she has been sought out by business owners seeking her skills to help them in their businesses with their physical training and mental well-being.

Corrine has studied Public Relations at Deakin University prior to her fitness career which found her managing the business when she met her now husband (Chris). She is a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer and holds an impressive range of other skills including Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Training, Inherited Trauma training through Mark Wolynn & also her level 1 Certificate in Childosophy under Dr Maxine Therese, just to name a few. Her training in fitness modalities is extensive and Corrine loves to continue adding to her skill set also.

Corrine’s tenacity, dedication and discipline on the never-ending journey for improving health and fitness extends beyond herself to everyone in her life. As an extremely strong advocate for holistic and natural approaches to health, Corrine is renowned for her depth of knowledge and experience. In the search for the “why” she does not apply a band aid approach to anything. Corrine’s intention is to cultivate, clear, honest communication and values which is also why the work she does with private clients is called All Heart All Hustle. Corrine is very focused on looking at the entire picture when it comes to supporting others, with an eye on the long game. Her defined attention to detail allows her to support others to bring it all together. Corrine’s dream was to create her own custom designed career combining all her passionate skills into one, to offer something unique that no one else delivers as a whole.

Corrine only works with a small handful of people privately, after taking a step back from running classes herself some time ago. She focuses solely on building the business & her client work making it what it is today. By facilitating everything from training, nutrition, habit changing and motivation, she helps her clients to see a solution to every problem and have clarity in their overall wellbeing.

Corrine has a wonderful social nature and you can find Corrine joining CFG members most days for daily workouts!

Corrine’s wisdom and experience is not something that you can learn in a degree alone, it is a combination of her life’s work brought together in combination with all her skills to deliver something which changes the lives of those who want to continue to live better and be better.

As well as the success in the fitness and wellness industry Corrine and her husband Chris also ran a very successful online business which they sold a few years ago. Chris designed a product himself and together they began manufacturing it and within 2.5 years had a warehouse in Melbourne selling to people all around the world. Corrine has exceptional time management skills and ensures that her business reflects this in how it operates day-to-day throughout her team.

Corrine also co-created the concept of Skinny Dippers Wholefoods Cafe in Newtown alongside husband Chris & Chef Sarah Holmes. Skinny Dippers Cafe was created out of the need to have somewhere to enjoy people’s company who share the appreciation for clean healthy food in which people’s menu alterations and food intolerances were not a nuisance or a problem and in fact were welcomed with open arms. This is where her creativity really shines!.

CrossFit Trainers Geelong

Justin Stevens

CrossFit Trainer

I grew up playing many sports through my childhood as you usually do coming from a small town, football, soccer, gymnastics, martial arts, etc.During high School you would always find me at the skate part either inline skating, skateboarding, or on a bmx. In my mid 20’s I found my way back into Martial arts where I studied Kyokushin Karate. I was fortunate enough to have trained under the Australian Team coach (Sensei Steve Hardy) and quickly found myself competing in full contact karate. Under his guidance, I managed to hold a Victorian and NSW State titles and gain an Australian title in the 5th KYU & under divisions.
Later the same year, my fiance and I decided to move to Canada, here I trained in MMA for a few years and then found CrossFit. It wasn’t until I had to have surgery on my knee (due to a freak accident at home) that I had to give up MMA and focus on rehabilitation. I used CrossFit methodology to rehab myself back to being able to move correctly and correct movement issues that I was having post-op (as well as having some awesome physio’s).
During this time we moved from Vancouver to Fort St. John where I started training at the local box. After 2 years of training I decided to get my Level one as I wanted to know more about CrossFit & shortly after obtaining the certificate I was offered a coaching position. I coached at CrossFit 187 & during this time I built up a fantastic relationship with the local physio and together we were able to help our clients overcome their limitations.
I am really loving getting involved in the Community here at CrossFit Geelong and looking forward to being part of the team for many years to come! !

Rob Patterson

Coach
Growing up in Alberta Canada I started off playing hockey and lacrosse like every Canadian my age does. After high school, life took me to Europe and that led to me moving to Australia! 10 years later I’m a permanent resident and soon to be a citizen. When I moved to Australia I bounced around jobs and began packing on the weight. Then I discovered kettlebells and functional fitness. I got hooked on those and they helped me shed 30+kg and I developed a love for fitness. I have my cert 3&4 in fitness, Level 1 CF Coach and level 1&2 in Kettlebells & Level 1&2 in Steel Mace.
I took the plunge and began working in the fitness industry shortly after I discovered CrossFit. Since starting CrossFit it’s taken me all over the country, competing, spectating and learning. I love the energy that comes out during a busy class. The community vibe is always great, especially when you see everyone come together and cheer on PBs or people finishing up long wods.
I love being a coach at CFG and invite you all to seek me out for any help you may require during your journey here with us.!.
