About Gym Cartel

February 2013 saw the arrival of a new gym that combined the training concepts of olympic lifting, gymnastics, boxing, CrossFit (refer affiliate page), and old school, grass roots garage strength training. The owners, Zack and Simon, had created Brisbane's real first "all purpose" gym that welcomed beginners and advanced athletes alike.

The gym has since relocated from its original garage to 22 Austin Street, Newstead. The new facility has been created to provide the best flow, atmosphere and function to suit its valued community. With an ethos of cleanliness and quality training equipment, the NEW Gym Cartel is difficult to match.

The gym now hosts:

  • CrossFit.
  • Boxing for the fitness enthusiast or the tech savvy. 
  • Free weights training area and open gym*
  • Onsite remedial massage. 
  • Olympic lifting platforms, jerk blocks and competition barbells.
  • Gymnastics classes.
  • Children's classes (5 to 12yo)
  • Private coaching
  • Wodify performance tracking software.
  • Shower facilities.
  • Off street parking.
