CrossFit Box Tour: CrossFit Marrickville Part 1

Sydney, Australia — It was August of 2010 when David Buckley and his partner Gemma-Hey Barber opened their roller doors to the CrossFit affiliate, Inner West CrossFit.

From a core of 15 members on opening day, Inner West CrossFit quickly grew to over 100 members in just 12 months. By the 18-month mark and with over 150 members, Buckley was forced to close membership, placing newcomers on a waiting list.

That huge success propelled Buckley’s partner, Barber to open CrossFit Marrickville at the end of 2012.

In part one of our box tour, The Rx Review stopped by CrossFit Marrickville two weeks before their opening to take a look at one of Sydney’s newest affiliates.
