What our members say


I am one of the newest members of Cross Fit Gain joining 6 months ago after just only one trial session. It quickly became clear to me this is the place to be and I wanted part of it from the offset, because Tom shared the same vision and passion as me to succeed, with his knowledge, experience and team of coaches.


After the first week at Gains I realised the community Tom has built in Norwich believes it is as important if not more that the team succeeds as well as the individual, with goals being smashed on a daily, weekly basis, inspiring me even more.

The coaches have help me achieve gains I never thought was possible with my Olympic lifting in such a short period of time, bearing in mind I have been training for 10 plus years, trying many methods and programs.

To sum it up Gains is exactly what is says on the tin and I am benefiting from this every day. If you want fun, and to meet some great people along the way whilst exercising in Norwich I would recommend you visit.

Crossfit GAIN the one and only place to work out!!!!

Little bit about me:

Been working out for about ten years (you wouldn’t know to look at me though) I got stuck doing the same routine with minimal effort and getting disappointed at not seeing any results.

Saw an advert for Les Mills tried all the classes Combat, CX works and Body pump but soon felt disheartened putting the effort in with no results, I’ve got 3 children and seeing them every day getting bigger, stronger, faster and knowing that I need to be able to keep up with them! So I started googling gyms in and around Norwich few came up but I didn’t want to get back into the same old routine of the same programme and going through the motions with no results, but there was one that STOOD out Crossfit GAIN so straight away trying to find out as much as I could but there was so much conflicting information I thought just go down and speak to them.

I joined Crossfit GAIN 8 months ago and I can say in all honesty it has been one of the best things I have ever done.

They say it is all in the timing, and for me I would definitely say that was true, I was ready for a change in my life and what I saw on that day intrigued me, it looked like fun. I emailed them and got a response (Come down for a chat!!!) Tom was the first person I spoke to. He arranged a time for me to come in to have a consultation and the rest as they say, is history. I signed up for my free taster session – I put my trust in Tom as he promised me that if I stick with it I will see results, (Friends started saying you’re looking in better shape and losing a stone in 6 months) I told him that basically I wanted to become fitter and lose weight.

His guidance also extended to directing me with my eating plan. What I received during this time was a complete path to overall health and fitness of the body, mind and soul. He continually kicked my butt to the limits for my level of fitness and for what I asked him to achieve from me, and truthfully I love every bit of it. (It’s quite scary as Tom seems to know more about your capabilities than you do yourself) With every bit I am a step closer to achieving the mental and physical fitness that I am aiming for. For the past 8 months training, which was at 6.30 am, I woke up each time eager to get there. Tom’s enthusiasm and professionalism as a trainer and motivator is second to none. He just has a knack of finding something deep down inside you to keep you going. What I also found with the team at Crossfit GAIN was how everyone makes you feel welcome, it’s like one big family.

The coaches are all fantastic, their approachable, only to keen to help guide you, motivate you, their highly professional and very passionate about what they do. And that enthusiasm passes on right throughout the gym. Everyone, including the other members are always there to cheer you on, to get you through those last hard seconds! Just over 8 months on and I can’t imagine my life without it. My fitness level is the best it’s been in 36 years. My mental alertness is heightened to a new level and my overall general wellbeing has improved dramatically. My outlook on life has changed – completely for the better. I can’t speak highly enough about CrossFit GAIN, it doesn’t matter what sort of person you are, how old you are, or what you wish to achieve, they will welcome you and guide you to be the best you want to be.

Words can’t begin to describe the effect that CrossFit GAIN has had on me in the short time I’ve been involved. It has given me some purpose to succeed not only in the gym but other parts of life. You can apply the disciplines of training to everyday life, and with their expert knowledge and continued support, the results come thick and fast! To anyone who thinks they CAN’T – You most certainly CAN!”


I have been attending crossfit gain for a year and have never looked back.


The coaches are excellent and always go the extra mile to help you meet your goals offering extra help out of class and always offering support .

The other members are fantastic and extremely supportive. The last person to finish gets the loudest cheer and the encouragement offered is second to none. I have trained at other gyms and found them soulless.

Crossfit gain is the complete opposite the atmosphere is a amazing there is a real buzz no mater what time of day.

There are always extra events being put on to help you delevop your skills and knowledge. My fitness levels and confidence have increased massively since starting. I wouldnt train anywhere else now.


I started at Crossfit GAIN about 6 months ago and still love it!


It's a great place to train everyone is supportive and genuinely wants you to improve, all of the coaches know their stuff and practice what they preach.

I was new to crossfit when I started but everyone made me feel welcome. When I look at the WOD (workout of the day) I still have days when I don't think it's possible to complete. However everyone always does, despite age, size and fitness as it can be scaled to your ability. This is one of the things I love over a normal gym, you push yourself to the max but in a supportive atmosphere. You get a full workout, so you don't over train in one area and still manage to have a laugh while doing it as no one takes their self too seriously. I started crossfit to help with staying in shape for climbing as core strength is important in both as well as working on wrist strength. As a bonus picked up other skills such as doing double unders and handstand push ups 

Still got plenty to work on, so won't be getting bored!


A friend invited me to a free taster sesh, From that first session I was hooked.


Before starting crossfit i was just the average gym goer and would never really push myself to my limit.

Crossfit does that in a safe and friendly environment, no egos, healthy competition and a lot of laughs! Since joining I have broken all my PB's and become a lot fitter.

It's not just about pushing yourself, your also helping others breaks barriers.

There's so many different classes each with different benefits depending on what you want to work on these class's combined with the great coaching team makes it the success it is.

I'm 42 and have been with Cross Fit Gain for just over a year.
There comes a time in your life when you look at yourself and say F*#K I'm fat.

Mark B.

Their are lots of options, but these three were mine;

  • 1. Go for the 'Dad Bod '
  • 2. Head for the garden shed, wrap myself in cling film and eat Mars Bars
  • 3. Actually get my arse into gear and start healthy eating and exercise

I choose the latter.

I've been going to the gym for years on and off( mainly off).

I would go for two months everyday and then rest for ten months.
The problem is, that I found the gym so boring. I needed lots of motivation also I need variation. But I didn't really want to pay for an instructor.

Then I was lucky to hear about Cross Fit Gain.

As soon as I started, I loved it! There is always a great coach to help with technic and motivation. I'm not the best at it, but I'm getting better and fitter. I never feel judged or intimidated as their are people of all different levels of fitness and age . From the super fit to the first timers. But it's always friendly. As the saying goes in cross fit leave the ego at the door.

I've now lost two stone (with a bit to go) and most importantly I feel so much healthier .

Having gotten bored of the same old routine at my old gym I tried CrossFit GAIN to do something a little different.

Mark F

I've now been going for around six weeks and I can't see myself doing anything else. With the friendly help of Tom and all the coaches any apprehension I had over doing exercises that were completely foreign to me to start with quickly dissipated. I feel fitter and stronger than I have for a long time and look forward to each session with genuine excitement.


I used to systematically follow the traditional gym regime, up until I fell in love with Crossfit!


I can honestly say that I have never been fitter or stronger.

I used to be really bored of the same routine and was always on the look out for more challenging workouts and Crossfit is just that!

Head down to Gain Crossfit for a really strong community and a phenomenal coaching team run by head coach Tom!

You will he smashing your fitness goals before you know it!

I started at Crossfit Gain in September when I moved back to Norwich.

Rob E

I had always gone to the gym and done some running which I found could be a bit solitary and monotonous so my fitness had plateaued.

At Crossfit Gain the exercise is so varied my fitness levels have improved dramatically. I have found this has given me more confidence and determination in everyday life. The coaches all have their own styles but are all incredibly supportive in helping me achieve my goals.

It's a very friendly and welcoming place to workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.


Having never thought I would be fit enough (or good enough!) to do something like CrossFit it was something that I didn't think I would ever try.


Through hearing about it from friends and my partner, I agreed (reluctantly) to give it a go! Six months on and I haven't looked back, I'm totally converted and can't believe the improvements I've made! It's tackled my "weak areas" such as running, lifting, cardio...pretty much everything, which in a normal gym I would avoid, but now I can do! 

The atmosphere is great, everyone helps one another, the support and expertise you get from the trainers is excellent. Would recommend anyone to at least give it a go!

Opening Times //Mon, Tues, Wed & Thurs 6:30am-9pm // Friday 6:30am - 8pm // Sat 9am-3pm // Sun 10am-1pm
