Anchor Training was born out of desire for something different.

To fight the boredom of a typical gym and create excitement through strength and functional movements, with a community of likeminded humans. By physically challenging our bodies and minds for everyday life and breaking through the barriers that limit us from reaching our best.

Anchor Training was made to bring out your best self.

Meet the A-Team

El Capitano

Leading with over 10 years of experience, Tim is the captain and founder of Anchor Training.

He thrives on challenging his clients daily to do what they think is impossible, breaking down physical and mental limitations, all while broadening their view on what fitness means to them. Anchor was created in the search for something different – somewhere fun with a community of like-minded people that support and carry each other through the tough sessions.

Tim has competed to great heights physically since childhood. Playing A-grade Rugby League for 10 years, Age Champion swimming titles and also House Captain. In recent years, his focus changed towards racing at an elite level in Triathlons, Spartan Races, Tough Mudders, OCR World Championships and Hyrox Comps. But as much as Tim enjoys being active, he is also a full-time geek. Whether it’s dressing up as house Slytherin to Supanova events, brewing that perfect coffee shot or simply awaiting a new Star Wars game he believes balance is key. As Din Djarin says - “This is the Way!”


The company of others with the same ambitions. Most often the one thing that keeps us motivated is the encouragement and support of friends and family. Building a strong community of outlandish humans is what Anchor Training emphasises. Highs and lows happen every day, and there is nothing better than a cheeky smile or motivating comment from someone you sweat with each week.


If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. There is nothing more rewarding than overcoming a challenging work-out and thinking “wow, I did it!”. With innovative equipment and the latest in exercise practices, no two classes at Anchor HQ are the same. We strive on challenging you every session and providing the variety in our workouts to do so. Whether it’s a Pinnacle WOD or an Anchor Strong class, you will feel tested.


Most of us spend all day looking at screens; why would you want to when working out? We strive to reduce our carbon footprint and have no electrical machines at Anchor HQ. Don’t worry, we still have people powered rowing machines and sweat powered echo bikes for all your cardio requirements. We even hand grind our coffee beans for your pre-workout coffee shots.


Everyone is your equal at Anchor HQ. Leaving your ego at the door is pre-requisite for each member. You may not immediately recognise the coach at Anchor HQ, because he looks like you. He does the same workouts when he can (loves joining in), eats the same foods and endures the same life challenges as you. We are all on this fitness journey together, staying strong and healthy, to do the things we love. No matter what walk of life you’re from or your age, everyone is always welcome at Anchor HQ.

Introducing Yin Yoga

Hi, I'm Roxy

I am a Level 1 Yoga Instructor and love to share yoga and meet people where they are to support them with their intentions. Whether that is to increase physical conditioning through a regular yoga practice, or to increase flexibility, mobility or to cultivate calm through meditation and yoga.

Yoga is a passion of mine and led me to complete over 500 hours of yoga teacher training in Brisbane, Byron Bay and Bali. I am trained and experienced in teaching trauma sensitive yoga and yin yoga.

Yin yoga is one of my favourite classes to teach to support students to regulate their nervous system, lengthen muscles and connective tissue, unwind physically and support mental wellbeing.

I hope to meet you on the mat really soon!

Look for Yin Yoga on the class timetable!

Our Yin Yoga classes are the perfect way to give your body what it needs, to unwind after a stressful day and refocus on the present. Your body is the vessel in which you live your life in, treat it well!

Coach Annette

Hi, I'm Annette

I’m a Personal Trainer and Heroic Coach. I stepped into my first gym in the 1980’s and continue to be passionate about health, fitness and wellness. I believe we can all achieve optimal levels of energy to help us live our best life, at any age. One of my mantras is “1 Percent Better” which annoys my three children, but I think they secretly see it’s worth.

I am excited to connect with people and train alongside them. I love to apply my strength and fitness to learning new skills and being active with my family and friends. You will also find me reading (about well-being), at the movies (I love anything around the hero’s journey) and finding healthy places to eat and replenish.


Don't just take it from us - here's what some of our members have to say!
