Hello World, It’s our Grand Opening day

I’m very proud to announce the official opening day of Joe’s Basecamp by one of the world’s leading mountaineers, Andrew Lock  9:30am Saturday 7th March. We believe we have built a truly unique experience in fitness, training and encouraging people to grow by getting out of their comfort zone.


8am: If you want you can book in for our Open class: choose from Boxing or  a Team workout. Come and jump in a class for free and see what we are about, how we work. Experience the fun, the sweat and the tears.
9:30am Official Opening Andrew Lock, Mountaineer. One of the few people in the world to have climbed all fourteen 8000m peaks, an exciting and engaging speaker and truly inspirational man who went from the Scouts to being one of the world’s top mountaineers. Andrew will have with him copies of his new book Summit 8000.
