Although CrossFit is our main focus we can also accommodate those just wanting 1:1 PT 1:4 PT or group PT sessions. We offer weekend bootcamps (watch out for more times, coming in July). We also offer nutritional advice and body MOTs 😁. Why not book a free Intro to see how we can help you.  


We can also help Football and Rugby teams, in fact any kind of team that would like some extra training or PT sessions we can accommodate. Just let us know what you require and we can arrange a meeting and discuss training schedules etc. 


We can also hire out our facility to anyone who might need a large space to work in. Message Team Ulysses for details. 


Please feel free to tag anyone who might need our help!

We have all been there.  I’ve been there multiple times.  Making every effort and focusing on your nutrition and fitness goals, but then life gets in the way.

We have all been there. I’ve been there multiple times. Making every effort and focusing on your nutrition and fitness goals, but then life gets in the way.

We have all been there. I’ve been there multiple times. Making every effort and focusing on your nutrition and fitness goals, but then life gets in the way.   You get busy or have a drama or trauma and before you know it you’re right back at square on, or you think you are. Maybe you’ve just put on a little bit of weight of lost some muscles.  But you feel like all your successful efforts where for nothing or have been lost and you’ll never get back to it. You end up eating takeaways and not going to the gym. Feeling you’ll never be able to get back on track again.  

 

How do you get back to it? How do you snap out of it? How can you start again?  

 

For most people it’s a shock of looking in the mirror without your blinkers on or seeing a photo of yourself on social media, maybe needing new clothes and realizing you’ve been squeezing in those jeans for far too long. For me it was a cold hard shock of looking down at myself in the bath one day.   I realized that my stomach which was getting to looking flatter everyday with all my hard efforts of training, was now bouncing on top of the water like a dead whale.

 

For me, life (or rather death) hit me hard. I’m not proud to say it but i just lost love for everything.  My Mam’s death had affected me more that i realized.. I ended up being a very negative person, i filled my mouth and stomach with crappy food, i didn’t care what i was doing or who else it was affecting either.  People around me gave me a wide berth as i was moody and negative and just didn’t care about anyone or anything, least of all myself. All my good habits i’d built up for myself since starting Ulysses had just vanished along with my happiness, zest for life and even my personality and what made me “me”..   

 

But i vowed to myself after my breakdown (in the said bath), that i needed to get back to me and pull myself out of this black hole i’d put myself in.  My Mam would of gave me a good hard slap and some cold advice and told me to pull myself together and to stop being so negative. My Mam, for the people who didn’t know her was the life and soul of any place she entered, she was an amazing woman with a heart of gold, she was full of life and loved having adventures and fun.  (pretty much like the person i was before she got ill and was taken from us)...

 

So, time to bounce back and be “me” again. 2019 was a year i’d turn my life around and start to focus on me.   No excuses, no putting things off anymore. This is why i’m so determined to get to my goals and i’d like to help you get to yours too. I care about your goals just as much as mine. Let me help you get in the right mindset, be happy and healthy.

 

You see life happens, life sometimes hits us hard or we have things we need to deal with that are out of our hands and we end up half arsing workouts or nutrition.     

 

But no matter how hard you train, no matter how many classes you attend, you can never out train a bad diet.  You need to focus on nutrition first and workouts second. Get the proper nutrients your body needs for all your aspects of life.   Busy lives need proper fuel. Busy people need to eat, but we need to eat proper healthy foods.

 

We all have struggles or hit a brick wall or plateau from time to time. Maybe it’s a few weeks, months or even years, but it’s how you bounce back that matters. It’s never too late to change it, it’s never too late to get back on track and be who you want to be.   It’s not the end of your story, it’s just another chapter in your life.

Find yourself someone who will help you along the way,  a friend who needs to lose weight, a training partner who will push you to do better every time.  A nutrition coach to keep you on track and for accountability. You just need to get started NOW, don’t think i need to lose a bit of weight before starting, as procrastination is the worse thing as you’ll never get back on track.  

 

Take small steps if you are too afraid to take the big leaps.   Cut out alcohol. Cut out fizzy drinks, taking a step towards your goals everyday.  Drink more water, swap your flat white for an Americano, swap your full fat milk for almond milk.   Eat more vegetables with your meals, eating these first to fill you up. If you’re eating out, then swap your chips for sweet potato fries.   It’s the little things that add up. It’s the little changes that make the most difference. Do it one step at a time. Learn to walk before you can run. Whatever you change, is a big step in the right direction of achieving your goals.

 

I changed my nutrition and started training more, I left my job and changed my life around completely.   You don't have to be as dramatic as i was. But change is good.

 

What are you going to do to get to where you want to be. What are your health and fitness goals.   Write down that goal and stick to it.

 

Ask for help if you’re struggling.

Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box

Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box

Why choose CrossFit Ulysses over any other box.    

Here's why...

Head coach and CEO of CrossFit Ulysses has said on numerous occasions, that he wants to help people, no matter who you are or where you come from: and he does just that. Ben helps people believe in themselves. He is passionate about changing people's lives for the better.   Ben along with his great team of CrossFit coaches, PT's and nutrition coaches have been helping people achieve amazing milestones in their life!   From weight loss, fighting diseases to building muscles and even doing things in workouts like getting pull ups and lifting heavy weights.  People of all ages, weight, backgrounds, no matter your lifestyle we have a class or PT to suit everyone. Whatever your goal may be, Ben and his team can help you achieve it.   

At CrossFit Ulysses you'll do the WOD in a class environment which is capped to 16, so basically you're having a personal training session with a fully qualified CrossFit coach/PT, in a fun, safe environment

At Ulysses we pride ourselves on family/community values and everyone is treated exactly the same.  From the CEO to the cleaner, we know everyone is on the same journey.   Everyone is here for the same goal, to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle.    That's what everyone wants right? 

If you're a beginner or a veteran you'll find everyone at Ulysses has the same mindset.    To be the best version of themselves.    We TRUST THE PROCESS and find ourselves reaching potentials in ourselves we never know we had.  

I've heard people say "People talk about CrossFit like it's a cult".  Well if a cult is a group of like minded people who have you believing in yourself and help you achieve what you thought was impossible, then yes CrossFit could be 'like a cult'. 

The right coaches and members around you bring out the best in you and once you start believing in yourself like others do, you can achieve anything. Believe in yourself and the possibilities are endless.  

Have a look at our website and book a free intro.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey. 

Team Ulysses.
