A new CrossFit gym with a focus on creating a safe space for the community is set to open in a villager near Ipswich later this year. 

After working in the fitness industry for years, Ben Caldwell and Suze Money-Schenk have teamed up to open a new fitness venue at Claydon Business Park in Great Blakenham.

The business will be based on the CrossFit model - a fitness program of varied and high-intensity workouts centred on training and nutrition. 

There will be individual coach based and group classes as well as personal training, and pre and post-natal classes.

"We want it to be as inclusive as possible with up to six classes a day," said Mr Caldwell. 

A monthly membership for CrossFit Claydon will cost between £85 and £100.

"Every session is coach lead with feedback and critiques," said Mr Caldwell. 

"The best athletes in the world all have coaches."

As well as giving people the opportunity to workout in classes and access the facilities outside of sessions, the owners want the gym to be a safe space for the local community. 

"You become part of the community you are in," said Ms Money-Schenk. "We want to give back to the people in the local area.

"Sometimes you feel like you don't know where to go so we want people to know they don't have to come here to train, they can come here just to sit and have a coffee instead."

Claydon CrossFit plans to open in Claydon Business Park in early May this year.
