CrossFit is a lifestyle characterised by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
Owner and coach
My name is Peter Lovett I’m the owner of CrossFit Mudgee. I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2010. From my first workout I was hooked, I was hooked by the challenges of the workouts, the new skill they presented to me. The sense of community and a drive to peruse a healthier lifestyle.
Fast forward 10 years I now have my own CrossFit affiliate, a great community within it and life long friends.
We Are Unifyd - May Newsletter
This month we're highlighting one of our Unifyd Verifyd Affiliates from the Regional NSW, CrossFit Mudgee.
Owner and coach Peter Lovett has been in the business for over 10years now, and has proven himself as one of the countries top masters placing 37th in this year's open.
We took a minute to catch up with Peter about his affiliate.
How long have you been going for?
We have been established for five years, and after recently relocating to a new premises, we are excited to enter our next chapter of Crossfit Mudgee.
What made you start a CrossFit affiliate?
There was no Crossfit Gym in Mudgee, and when I was travelling here from my home in Penrith to my farm at Hargraves I wanted somewhere to train. So I saw an opportunity to bring Crossfit to Mudgee for the community and myself.
What is your motto/focus in your gym?
Our focus is to create a space for people to come together with the common goal of self improvement, health and fitness, and fun. We all have different goals and are at different points in our lives, and we want to help everyone to achieve whatever goals they have. And although we all like to push our limits and get a bit competitive, the overriding sense is of fun and laughs.
What can new members or drops expect to feel when they walk out of the gym the first time?
That they are welcome and accepted and a strong sense of community. We want our new members leaving with plans for the next class and drop-ins to wish they could stay another day.
What’s the most loved movement in your gym?
Hands down any sort of barbell clean, power or squat. Our members love any sort of olympic lifting.
What’s the most rewarding moment you’ve had?
There is always something rewarding to be found in every day. Sometimes the tiniest things mean so much, not just the big achievements. Although a standout moment would have to be when two of our teen girls reached the online qualifiers in 2019.
Do you have a ritual that the gym does each day/class?
I wouldn’t say we have a ritual, but being a small community we always have a good banter before the class, take the piss out of each other a bit
I feel that at CrossFit Mudgee we offer a great facililty that could stack up against any gym. We are very well equipped, and all our equipment is up to date, well maintained and clean. We have a large range of True Protein supplements, vending machine with clean energy drinks & bars. Our coaches know all the members because we not only coach them but also workout with them & we are passionate about their health and fitness. They are not only gym members but they are our mates. We also have our own touch foot ball & netball teams & have been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to sponsor the 1st-grade women’s rugby team (Mudgee Wombats) for the next 2 years With several players being members of our gym including the coach.
