Ignite Fitness and Nutrition in Alicetown, Lower Hutt exists because we believe all people have the right to achieve their health and fitness goals.
I opened Ignite Fitness and Nutrition to help people Move Better, Live Longer and Be Happier.
Our focus is on providing a space for people to feel safe enough to achieve their goals.
This is how we grow.
When I joined the gym as a teenager I worked out as most people do now – I pounded the treadmill, worked some machines til I was spent and then hopped back on a treadmill for another half hour.
Luckily, while I was playing rugby at University, one of my friends showed me a different way to train.
We used movements that transferred to the playing field more than the mirror and I quickly became the fittest I’d been in my life.
Experiencing that change in training style altered my life so profoundly that I felt compelled to share it with other players in my team.
I started taking more of a part in the planning of our team strength and conditioning sessions and quickly saw the success both on and off the field.
After a few years of post-university travelling, a friend of mine decided to open a CrossFit gym.
I wanted to know more so I decided it was time to get some more knowledge. I completed a CrossFit certification, a weightlifting certification, and a nutrition certification so I could develop more technical knowledge.
Following this, I moved to Lower Hutt to coach at my friend’s gym. A couple of years later, we decided to trade roles and I purchased CrossFit Hutt Valley in 2015.
In 2020, we re-branded to Ignite Fitness and Nutrition.
We used to solely offer CrossFit group classes but I realized there needs to be much more to our programme if I wanted to help people with more than just their physical development.
So we built Ignite around our pillars of health:
We moved away from the CrossFit programme to our own small group fitness programme capped at 8 people.
We also offer our Legends (50yrs and over) programme, personal training, and nutrition coaching.
To complement this we also offer corporate fitness and nutrition programmes.
Getting started with a new health and fitness program can be intimidating.
We created a simple guide for the first 100 days of your programme to be sure you don’t feel lost or intimidated.
If you’ve ever left a gym because you were confused, frustrated or intimidated, or if you’re nervous about starting a fitness program, we want to meet you.
We created this business for you.
And I’ve simplified the process to make it easy for you to find out more about how we can help you.
