We relocated to Noosa in 2016 with our young kids, after living and working in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. It was Singapore where we first discovered CrossFit, and we immediately joined CrossFit Noosa when we moved here. A passion became a new career when the opportunity to purchase the business came up and we don’t plan to waste it.

CrossFit Noosa was one of the first on the Sunshine Coast. The business was started in 2011 by CrossFit L4 Coach and HQ Seminar staff member Daniel Mellor. 5 years later it was purchased by his HQ Seminar staff colleague Matt Swift, also a CrossFit L4 Coach and 2015 CrossFit Games Masters Champion, and his CF-L2 wife Wendy. Matt and Wendy are co-owners of CrossFit Brisbane, one of Australia’s first.

At the start of 2019 we took on the business. We plan to take something already great and make it the best CrossFit in Australia. We’ve already equipped the current space with cool toys and staffed it with great trainers. Meanwhile we are hard at work building a new gym a few blocks away, that we anticipate will go live later this year as the best and coolest CrossFit in the country. We are very excited about the new space! You can read more about it here.
