Before CrossFit showed up the only alternatives for most guys were either long distance running, or doing endless sets and reps in a weight room with no real clue what you were doing and no proof that it was actually working.
CrossFit changed things by bringing in constantly changing workouts and professionally coached training sessions. The constant variance means you no longer get bored. Classes are a maximum of an hour long, which means you can turn up, be coached and go home or go to work. You’re guided through the movements and exercises and you are told why you’re doing the training you are doing for the day. The guesswork is gone.
From movie stars to elite athletes to grandparents and kids, this program has helped them all. If you want to be the fittest person in the room at your next meeting or just want to be healthy enough to run around and play with your kids or grandkids. Our program is for you.
You might be thinking ‘but wait, this is CrossFit. CrossFit is for those hardcore fitness junkies!’ But it’s not, we have a few different programs and we have a program for every person, no matter the age, experience, or how often you workout.
Our classes are led by expert coaches, working hard to not only make you better but also to make sure you are moving correctly. On top of that, we offer 1 on 1 nutrition coaching and accountability to maximize your results.
So when you’re ready, take the next step and book a Free No Sweat Intro with us.

Owner / Head Coach
Hi, I’m Alex, the Owner and Head Coach at CrossFit Waimakariri.
CrossFit has changed my life, when I started I was overweight and had a list of metabolic diseases as long as my arm. High cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart problems to name a few.
After two years of doing regular CrossFit sessions and eating better, I was finally taken off the last of my medications, some of which I had been on since I was 18.
Exercise and nutrition gave me back my life and allowed me to do all the things I was missing like running around with my daughter. I now spend my time trying to help people in a similar situation as me.

Here’s what members are saying about us
AndreaI wound up at CFWM because I wasn’t at a low point in life, but I was at a low point in me, I had been recovering from quite a nasty accident, a skiing accident, that I had three years ago. Absolutely bust everything, my ribs, my shoulder, my shoulder blade and everything I just couldn’t get back to my normal strength and fitness. Then one day the add for the New You Challenge came up on my computer and I though this is exactly what I need; the motivation and the commitment. I started, I got accepted on that challenge and I haven’t looked back. Probably if anything, I’m addicted.
” It has changed me because I wasn’t greatly overweight but I was enough, and I was lethargic. Now I feel more focused, stronger, fitter- which in turn rolls into my daily life. From work and family life and general health— it’s been great for me.”- Matt Blair
Cath and John
” I think collectively we’ve probably lost about 25 kilos. Maybe more. We’re fitter, happier, more interested in life, more active, yeah- everything. I think mental health wise is the best thing- it makes you feel positive about your day or whatever’s coming or whatever’s been. You know, I love the people. I love turning up for a bit of a yarn, haha, a bit of a chat.”
“I love CrossFit for the fitness results I get, the varied and fun workouts, but most of all the awesome positive people who are part of the Waimakariri CrossFit gym.”- Sam Lucas
“I think the new gym’s awesome- it’s huge here. I think Alex and Jane have done really well to get to where they have.”
“I started last year sometime, I was just over going to the gym and doing the same old stuff every day– so I thought I’d come and give it a go.”
