CrossFit 1010 was born last August when Candice Thomason wanted to start something special. It came after she’d spent time travelling, worked as a chartered accountant and made the move to Melbourne from England. Now, along with her trainers Bec and Ashlee, she’s got people of all ages eager to exercise. 

“I was watching my then 10-year-old twin nephews play basketball. I watched their movements,” Candice said. “It was then that I realised I wanted to complete a CrossFit kids qualification. I wanted to help children get better at sports and improve their physical mechanics.”

Having already completed her CrossFit qualification for adults, this was a natural progression. Candice began by training her nephews in her garage and from there she decided to start her business. In her gym you’ll notice lots of kids training while their parents do the same. Candice has turned CrossFit into a family activity and CrossFit 1010 into a family space. This gym reduces the need for a childcare facility on site and gives parents time to exercise between work and parent duties while still spending quality time with their kids.

Candice’s gym re-introduces the social element to working out. She’s noticing there is much more face-to-face contact in her gym as children and parents put down their screens and workout together. Kids as young as three can join in with CrossFit-style games. 

“As someone who has moved to Australia, getting to know my community and supporting small businesses within my community is very important to me. Growth in the community is important. We must look after the people around us. I know how hard it is to run my own business; with 15-hour days you’re constantly working. Everyone’s in the same position so I want to help everyone out if I can.”
