Our fabulous Niche members come from all walks of life. All different ages, all different experience and fitness levels and all different goals. These wonderful humans and the energy they bring to the gym is a big part of what makes Niche so special.

One thing they all have in common — They all come to Niche to have fun, learn new things, get fit and live a happier and healthier life. Meet some of the team below.

HAVE YOU MET… GREG?

It's FANTASTIC GREG! Because he has a shirt that says so & let's face it, never have truer words been printed! This 'silver-fox' is part of the dynamic duo that is Mickey & Greg and has graced the 5:30 am class since the dawn of Niche in 2014. Greg has been...

HAVE YOU MET… RICHIE?

This athlete brings the biggest smile and warmest heart to match! Richie has been gracing the afternoon and weekend classes now for almost 12 months and with his martial arts background is no stranger to hard work and mental toughness. He has one of the best work...

HAVE YOU MET… MATT?

This Athlete of the Month started his CrossFit journey in April 2016 and caught the CrossFit bug the moment he walked in the door. A family man, a business owner, a cyclist, a golf enthusiast, a keen guitarist and now with all his ‘spare time’…a CrossFitter. Never...

HAVE YOU MET… NIK?

Everybody's favorite neighbour, Mr. Bessie himself is our latest Athlete of the Month. After several years of persuasion (and as a result of winning over the love of Bessie), Nik finally decided to come and check out what all the fuss was about by throwing down of...

HAVE YOU MET… PHIL?

Phil has been flying high on the radar over the past 3 months with his consistency in training and dedication to mastering technique i.e. our mascot for RESPECTING THE PROCESS!! Phil has been busy getting his GymNASTY strength on, which is now paying dividends in...

HAVE YOU MET… GORDIE?

Since joining the Niche Fam, Gordie has swallowed the CrossFit pill hook, line and sinker! His charismatic charm and goofy grin won us over in an instant and he fit into the community at Niche like an old shoe. Coming to Niche he him a couple of years of experience...

HAVE YOU MET… PETRA?

For those who don't know Petra, she is 'that lady' who can hold a 3 min hollow body and 3 min handstand!! Of course she is Boss Lady's favourite. Petra is one of those quiet, no fuss types and we are extremely excited with her progress since coming on board. Please...

HAVE YOU MET… JOHN?

When Niche first opened, John was often the only man on deck in the early morning sessions. Let's just say he has done the hard yards listening (and occasionally contributing) to girly conversations between squat sets (his knowledge of clothing labels is now much...

HAVE YOU MET… KAREN?

It has 3 years since Karen first graced us with her presence, and my, what an extraordinary addition to the Niche family she has been! Karen has barely missed an opportunity to throw-down with the 5:30am crew, and as a result of some phenomenal fitness gains, she's...

HAVE YOU MET… MEL?

Mel is one of our greatest quiet achievers (even this morning we had to kick him up the butt to ring the PB Bell!) I'm sure many of you have noticed the fabulous gains Mel has made since joining us a few months back. He now owns the barbell and we've spotted the...

HAVE YOU MET… JEMMA?

Another tough month to choose our Athlete of the Month with a few bods on the radar, but we couldn't be happier with our decision. Jemma holds the coveted title of our longest standing member. Jemma's first recorded class in Mindbody was on the 5th of May 2014 and...

HAVE YOU MET… MICKY?

A double congratulations to our Athlete(s) of the Month; Micky and Greg. Although Greg marked his territory at Niche some months before his lovely wife, Micky has come on-board all guns blazing. Greg and Micky have been incredibly consistent with their training,...

HAVE YOU MET… RACH?

Another tough month to choose our Athlete of the Month with a few bods on the radar, but we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Our AOTM for August is...RACH!! These past few months she has absolutely impressed us with her commitment to training, dietary...

HAVE YOU MET.. AMANDA?

We’re so happy to announce that our Athlete of the Month for December is someone who has been in the pipeline for a while now and has done the hard yards to earn this badge of honour (sorry… no prize money). Please join us in congratulating Amanda for taking our...

HAVE YOU MET… CHARINA

Our athlete of the Month for May is... CHARINA!!! Charina has been one of the Niche groupies for a long time now. I guess we see her as our resident 'mum' as she's always the first to lend a helping hand, suggest a better quality magnesium supplement and always has...

HAVE YOU MET… SELINA?

This athlete started her CrossFit journey with us in August 2016 after reading about one of her good friends Jemma, who was the August 2016 of the month. Every step of the way she has whole heartedly committed herself and embraced new challenges and stepped outside...

HAVE YOU MET… KILLA?

She’s been part of the Niche fam for over 18 months now & her contagious laugh is just as infectious as it was on day 1. You always know when KILLA is in the room! Despite some niggles and set backs with a grumpy shoulder the past 6 months Killa has been...

HAVE YOU MET… DONNY?

Undergoing the natural evolution of athletes migrating from Gymnasty classes to CrossFit, Donny is completely and utterly under the influence of the CrossFit gateway drug. You'd recognise Donny by his ever-present smile, his impressive gymnastics skills, and his...

HAVE YOU MET… KYLIE

Who knew, but she was apparently pregnant for the past 8-ish months. Didn't even notice. This soon to be mumma bear was an absolute inspiration throughout her pregnancy, not only with continuing her fitness routine, but also how she approached her training by...

HAVE YOU MET… FRANCK?

Franck the Tank! The cliche nickname that no other Franck could possibly live up to quite like our French Franck & our AOTM for March! You’ll see him floating about, sporting the gyms most stylish moustache... unless of course he is on the rower, in which case...

HAVE YOU MET… ATHIRA?

Our Athlete of the Month for March is....ATHIRA!!! Athira has been with us from the early days and is a little (literally) bundle of happiness. As well as her cute/cheeky giggle Athira has made some serious GAINZ in her strength over the past few months (including...

HAVE YOU MET… HOLLIE?

We are excited to announce that our Athlete of the Month for September goes to a long standing, constantly hilarious hard working; congratulations HOLLIE!!! Together with her training consistency in both CrossFit and Gymnasty Strength classes, Hollie has really...

HAVE YOU MET… CAITLIN

Our Athlete of the Month for September is....CAITLIN!!! I'm not sure if you've noticed lately, but Caitlin has made some ridiculous improvements in her training over the past two months. Why? Firstly, she is just a cool person (with a strange accent), so gains were...

HAVE YOU MET… AARON?

Our Athlete of the Month for July is... AARON!!! Aaron started playing around at Niche in the early days of our gymNASTY classes (being the natural gymnast he is) and got hooked into CrossFit from then. Why has he earned our prestigious AOTM title?? Well, he...

HAVE YOU MET… JOSH?

It’s almost been a year to this day since Josh started his CrossFit journey here at Niche. He’s been consistent from day one having attended well over 100 classes with only one cancellation…

HAVE YOU MET… HAILEY?

The first Athlete of the month for 2017 goes to one of our most consistent members. In 2016 she attended 182 classes… that’s one every second day and not a single one without a smile on her face. She spreads the love at all the different specialty classes and has...

HAVE YOU MET… GABI?

It’s hard to believe that this little superstar has only been doing CrossFit for 4 months. In that time, she’s racked up a whopping 130 classes at the gym… that’s 32 a month! It’s not just her impressive attendance statistics that have earned her the AOTM title....

HAVE YOU MET… SHANNON?

The lovely Shannon has brought such a warm presence to the Niche community. But don't let her sweet personality fool you; this girl is an absolute beast! Her military background and superb focus have inherently given this hot Mumma stellar physical strength and a...

HAVE YOU MET… DES?

Des’s ability to light up a room (and the box for that matter) is second to none - you know you’re in for a good time when Des is in the class.

HAVE YOU MET… KATIE?

Katie Hartshorn for June - Marvellous effort, that! Synonymous to her successes on the cricket field, Katie has smashed the ball out of the park (so to speak) in the CrossFit world at Niche! Her courageous smile and joyous nature has warmed all of our hearts, but...

HAVE YOU MET… KATIE?

The ultimate pocket rocket and the epitome of all that is “Respect the Process”. Katie started her journey at Niche by diving head first into the GymNASTY Strength & skill session, rarely missing a class!

HAVE YOU MET… NICK?

Another tough month to choose our Athlete of the Month with a few bods on the radar, but we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Our AOTM for April is NICK!! This month is exactly 2 years since Nick joined the Niche fam and in this time, has consistently put the...

HAVE YOU MET… KIERAN

HAVE YOU MET… DICKY?

Our Athlete of the Month for December is... DICKY!! We don't think there would be any 5:30amer who wouldn't want to take Dicky home to meet their mothers (you too fellas). Dicky came to Niche after the unfortunate closure of The Cell, and we are so glad he came to...

HAVE YOU MET… BISS?

Did somebody say training hurdle, surgery, immobility? If so, BISS certainly didn’t hear! This powerful lady recently had surgery on her wrist which has by no means slowed her incredibly progressive training down. There’s so much to be said for the impact of an...

HAVE YOU MET… GEOFF?

Athlete of the Month for May is...GEOFF!!! If you don't know Geoff for some reason, he is the dry sense of humour, King of the banter guy who in this previous month has absolutely impressed us with his commitment to training, dietary practices (aside from a couple...

HAVE YOU MET… JACKIE?

We are very excited to announce our Athlete of the Month for February.... JACKIE!!! Our AOTM award is chosen for various reasons, and Jackie covers many of these bases. Jackie's first session at Niche was April 7th 2014, and since this time has always been an...

HAVE YOU MET… BEL?

Our Athlete of the Month for October is... BEL!! Bel came on board a couple of months ago with our Cell friends and has slotted straight into Nichehood. Bel always has a smile on her face and has shown fabulous commitment to her training by jumping on board her...

HAVE YOU MET… FI?

“Good things come to those who work their asses off” – a quote that reigns so true for our very own strength goddess, and Athlete of the month for September... Fi!

HAVE YOU MET… GAIL?

Athlete of the Month for April is.... GAIL!!! What an animal!! I'm sure most of you know Gail by now...you know, the one who pulls the most magnificent faces upon her first bar muscle up, drops the 'F-Bomb' unexpectedly and is one of the most consistent and hard...

HAVE YOU MET… MARCIA?

I’m sure you’ve all noticed this lovely lady has made some serious gains. She’s caught a serious case of barbell love knocking out PB’s on both her Clean and Snatch in the past month.

HAVE YOU MET… BRYAN?

SCORPION! Congratulations to the main man himself. Part of the Niche family for over 3 years now, Bryan has continued to take his training from strength to strength. He rarely misses a Comp Squad session or Niche Event WOD, frequents the weightlifting dance floor...

HAVE YOU MET… CANDICE?

Each month we have a handful of people on our radar for the coveted title of Athlete of the Month. This month was no different. If we are torn, we place our decision making in the hands of the true scientific method of the coin toss. Jokes. This month we actually...

HAVE YOU MET… STEPH?

Our Athlete of the Month for August is... STEPH!!! Steph (Undies) is one of those quiet achievers that plugs away… well that ‘plugging’ is starting to result in some serious gains in strength, body awareness and confidence in her training. Steph has been very...

HAVE YOU MET… SEB?

This month's Athlete of the Month (AOTM) was a resounding choice amongst the coaches.... Congratulations Seb Huigens! Seb completed the 101 Workshops in August and has made incredible progress since. His performance during classes and dedication to getting stronger...
