Our mission is to provide a community feel gym environment to take your fitness to the next level.

We do this with:


We pride ourselves in providing a warm, non-intimidating and engaging culture.  You will never workout alone


Our coaches are highly qualified, experienced and passionate about people and educating you to move better


Structured programs designed to challenge all levels of fitness.  Movements are also modified for anyone with injuries



Located in the heart of Richmond, Core Strength (CS) Richmond was born from a martial arts and combat club. Opened in November 2016, we’ve created a unique fitness experience within a non intimidating and friendly environment.  We are not your typical gym, we are the type of gym where you want to hang out before and after class, a community gym where you will be a name to us, not just a number.  Our dedicated coaches are here to support, encourage and inspire you to achieve more.

At CS, we train a lot of people who never train.  We are passionate humans but we are also very serious about fitness and creating better lives.


Our logo symbolizes the mountains we need to climb to face our adversities and rise to the challenge.  The triangle represents the strongest geometrical shape. Any structure requiring a strong and rigid construction depends on triangles to achieve that goal, just like our lives! Our logo is constructed of six triangles that represent the steps and stages of our continual pursuit to the summit.

Our coaches are committed to helping you with your steps to achieve your personal goals. The small triangle at the bottom is a reminder of where we started from and the bigger picture ahead. It also can represent the pebble in your own shoe that you need to overcome to get you started, not make excuses and strive to achieve your best. Our promise is to be there with you throughout your journey.

I started training and I could see the difference in my energy levels, mood and anxiety levels which was really motivating. The coaches are so welcoming, supportive and are committed in encouraging us to give it a go and have fun. The positive community atmosphere is really great, much better than any other gyms I’ve attended


My biggest change has been looking forward to the gym workouts.  My fitness has improved a huge amount with only 3 weeks of training.


Often group workouts can be a chore with ‘less than engaged’ Instructors and no genuine interest in technique or personal achievement. Your approach is the absolute opposite.


Classes are not just made to make you sweat, they are programmed to make you stronger. There’s a huge focus on technique in each class.


The trainers are amazing, they pinpoint the smallest detail to correct your movement which has made a huge impact on my strength.  It is a fun and friendly environment where everyone encourages you to do your best.


The gym is unpretentious. It is easy to get to know others. It’s not about who can pump the most weights but more about bettering your previous efforts.


For the first time in my life, I actually enjoy coming to a gym. I have gone to lots of different group fitness classes, but nothing like this. I feel at home here.


It’s a community. Everyone is super supportive, friendly and just genuinely cares for each other.


I love the culture, the inclusiveness. Everyone is equal, it’s all about having a go and doing the best you can.

When I coach nothing excites me more than to work alongside and help people achieve goals that once seemed impossible!

I believe solid mechanics and technique are fundamental to improving our fitness followed by intensity. In all my classes I aim to break down all the movements from the simple air squat to the complex snatch to ensure everyone from beginner to advance level athletea gets something new from their workout. 

When training with me expect to learn something new, be pushed to new limits and most importantly have fun!
