OLYMPIC lifting, rope climbing and gymnastic movement will be among the activities on offer at a new indoor gym set to be established in Bundamba.
Ipswich City Council Planning and Development Committee chairman Paul Tully said Hybrid Strength CrossFit had received approval from council to establish the gym at unit 1/17 Mining St, Bundamba.
Cr Tully said CrossFit was a strength and conditioning program used throughout the world by many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes.
He said CrossFit programs gave people the opportunity to develop flexibility, co-ordination extraordinary strength, balance, agility, and accuracy.
Hybrid Strength CrossFit operates like a personal training studio rather than a commercial gym and offers varied movementbased activities at high intensity.
Cr Tully said the new facility would help Ipswich strive towards its goal of becoming one of Australia's healthiest communities.
All classes will run for about an hour and accommodate up to 10 people.
