“I joined Crossfit Inventive around 3.5 years ago, I will admit that after watching the Facebook page & Instagram feeds for over 12 months I was a little nervous to step across the door. What I found though, was a group of people of different ages & abilities all with the same goal in mind- to get fit & healthy & have fun while doing it! I quickly found after meeting Jase and Tash, I had stepped into a gym which has awesome coaching and a place where everyone supports & encourages you to keep kicking your goals. My overall fitness has improved out of sight & whilst I am still not where I want to be yet, I can only keep improving over time.”
I was on the downhill run, 54 years old & 30 kgs overweight. I was lacking in strength and vitality and was unmotivated. I lacked the drive- damn menopause!!!! Whilst I had no diagnosis of a medical condition my lower back was weak and vulnerable. I ” had to watch it”. Any sudden off the mark movement or high impact movements would send momentary painful spasms shooting through my lower spine. My blood pressure and cholesterol were creeping up to levels where medications would be need to be implemented. My children told me “CrossFit is for you mum.” I told them “Don’t be ridiculous, you have to be fit for CrossFit and besides it’s all squats and I HATE SQUATS!!
4 months ago I decided to look into it more and came across Jase & Tash from CrossFit Inventive. They assured me they would modify the workouts for me & scale to my ability, CrossFit Inventive quickly became apart of my daily morning routine.
I started out not being able to do anything at all at high impact, even shuttle runs had to be shuttle walks because of my back. My squat consisted of me having a slight bend in my knees and the most I could lift was maximum 5kgs on a bar. Just 4 months down the track & I am now doing high impact exercise, my back has not had one single problem, my blood pressure and cholesterol are within normal limits & my strength has returned! I can now lift things in the house and garden that I couldn’t before.
Jason Hebbard’s (head coach) expertise and years of experience with physical well being is evident. I quickly learn’t to trust his coaching capabilities as I soon realised he knew how my body worked and how it would respond. He knows when to introduce me to a new skill and knows when to keep my focused on my current form.
My goal when I first commenced was to just walk through the doors at CrossFit Inventive every morning… I succeed, I am 13 kgs lighter, feeling much stronger and fitter and finally I have a bit of drive and motivation. It feels good, really good!
The encouragement and friendliness from the fellow CrossFittter’s at Inventive has been an added bonus to the whole experience. Who knows one day my goal might be to do the length of the gym with hand stand walks!
“I joined Crossfit Inventive about 3 years ago. The minute I walked into the gym I felt at home. No mirrors, no egos, just patient, expert & professional coaches. Jase and Tash are very safety conscious which is so important, especially for us more mature clients! I have exercised and been around gyms all of my adult life and have never felt as comfortable or looked as forward to going to the gym as I do at Inventive. The encouragement from the amazing coaching staff and the other members motivate you to be the best you you can be. The variety of disciplines and workouts makes every session a new experience and we are continuously challenged and learning new skills. Thank you Jase and Tash for your wonderful encouragement and support which filters down throughout all the members. I have never felt as fit and strong as I do now, both mentally and physically. Definitely-no one gets left behind.”

“My journey with Crossfit inventive it only started 3 1/2 months ago. I am 58 years old and was suffering from the normal everyday aches and pains & was lacking strength. Taking the shopping bags from the car and up the stairs was a bit of an effort. I did walk everyday, but I knew that wasn’t enough, so one day my son ( who started Crossfit 12 months ago) said to me “ Mum Crossfit is something you probably don’t want to do but you NEED to do!! ” So I listened and phoned Jase & Tash at CrossFit Inventive, once I met them I knew it was the place for me! They made me feel comfortable, welcome, I can easily say part of their family. I now feel stronger & fitter, I am slimmer, and I look forward to training 5 days per week. I am still the slowest but am never ever left behind- there is always so much support and encouragement from Jason , Tash and every single member! I love it.”
At the age of 48 I started at CrossFit Inventive after a good friend finally convinced me to cross over to a sport that would not only challenge me physically, but would introduce me to a fitness community of the likes I have never been a part of. Everyday is different due to the amazing coaches. Jase and Tash’s have the ability to create workouts that enable you to push yourself as hard as you can(or want) to achieve your goals. However safety is paramount,and that’s where the professionalism of the coaches shines through. Yes you do the lifting, but ALWAYS under the watchful eye of the extremely professional and dedicated coaches. As someone who has always done some form of exercise I embraced the opportunity to see where my mental and physical abilities could take me. Since starting at Crossfit Inventive, I am able to lift heavier, do a handstand- which I haven’t done in, well along time! Now handstand pushups are something I look forward too, and to celebrate my 50th birthday nailing a deadlift PB was the bomb! Tash and Jase at CrossFit Inventive have managed to create a community of people who regard each other as family and who live and train by the moto “NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND”. Nowhere else have I ever been part of has had this community of people who are the ultimate in support and encouragement! OHANA
Ive been coming to CFi for almost 4 years now and I cant see myself training anywhere else! Not only have they helped me through any goals ive had over the years, they've made it fun and comfortable to keep coming back. If you've got any injuries or concerns all coaches are willing to help and modify workouts so that you can still participate. I was training all through my pregnancy and then safely during postpartum with the incredible support and guidance from the CFI team. If you want to train at a place that calls you family and sweat & work hard with people you want to see everyday then this is the place for you!
After being involved in weight training and bodybuilding for over 20 years at the age of 42 I was finding as I got older it was becoming increasingly more difficult to get the results I wanted. I was finding it hard to lose weight but keep muscle size and strength at the same time. I started exploring other fitness avenues and after researching a bit online and receiving some great reviews, this is where I found CrossFit Inventive.
Jase and Tash from CrossFit Inventive offered me a free introductory beginners assessment, after this I was hooked and I joined. Within 6 months of joining CrossFit Inventive I had lost a total of 21kgs. My body weight was 116kg when I started over a year ago, I now weigh 95kg and feel fit healthy and strong, the best I’ve ever felt! Physically and mentally the changes and results were immediate and I have been able to maintain my weight loss. It has been an amazing journey so far and I am a better husband, father and person. Being apart of CrossFit Inventive has been the one consistent thing I’ve had, its saved my life & I have made life long friends.
