“You can’t out-train bad nutrition”… You might have heard this before. You may even have heard it and thought – challenge accepted! And then there comes a time when you realise how true it is, and you start to fight it less, and start to eat in a way that benefits You the most.
If you aren’t meeting your weight or fitness goals, looking at what and how you eat is going to be an excellent place to start. We generally follow the CrossFit guidelines on nutrition:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise, but not excess body fat.
Paleo or Zone methods of eating can be beneficial, and we will help you to find what works best for you and gives you the results you want.
Our advice… when you choose to change your diet, do so gradually. Quitting anything cold turkey rarely has lasting results. Start with the easier substitutes and notice any changes to your body (mood, energy levels, sleep, weight etc.) and tweak as required. Using this method will help ensure a long-lasting change.
Have more nutritional questions? Please ask questions of the CrossFit 3000 Team before or after one of your sessions.

We are pretty reasonable, and don’t expect to have to invoke the following. However for the protection of us and our members and ensuring we are promoting an excellent environment at all times, CrossFit 3000 South Melbourne reserve’s the right to the following:
- Refuse or cancel memberships
- Refuse you entry to the class if you are more than 5 minutes late
- Stop your participation in a class if you display poor attitude or are disruptive.
At least 5 days written notice is required for the cancellation or suspension of memberships. If your payment has already been processed (on time), there is no refund.
Membership Suspensions and Travel
We know that work and travel can sometimes get in the way of your training. CrossFit 3000 memberships may be put on hold at the discretion of management only for absences of four weeks of greater. When necessary, workouts can be scaled or modified to accommodate injuries.
If you are traveling within Australia, we have made arrangements with other CBD based CrossFit gyms around the country to allow you to train (for free) while traveling as part of your membership. Travel workouts are made available to our members to help with training on the road.
If you do still need to suspend your membership for an exceptional reason we will most likely let you do that. Please just send us a email request with at least 5 days notice. Suspensions are granted at the discretion of CrossFit 3000 South Melbourne, and will be limited to twice per year. A date of recommencement for your membership must also be given with your request. Your usual payments will be re-activated after your suspension period has been completed.
CrossFit 3000 is rarely closed )we are even open most Public Holidays – excluding part of Easter, Christmas and New years Day). All holidays are factored into our fee structure.
Refresher One on One Sessions
We don’t forget about you once you are in the group classes. In fact, we recommend that every 6 months you meet with your personal coach for a 1 on 1 session where you can work on a weakness or on a technical skill you need more help on. These sessions are $70/45 min session. Our recommended number of refresher sessions is once per year, however, you can meet up more often than that if you would like additional help with your weightlifting, gymnastics, strength-training or mobility elements.
