WELCOME

Welcome to UNBXD (Unboxed) FITNESS. 

The UNBXD brand was previously known as FitBox Durbanville/Kuilsriver and rebranded in May 2023. The new brand was established by Michelle Merand and Simone van Wyk. Michelle has represented Africa at the CrossFit Games in 2019 and in 2022. Simone has a diverse coaching background, from outdoor bootcamp, to coaching on the ships as well as being an expert in weightlifting and being able to transform any basic movements into a heart pumping workout.

Our coaching philosophy is to make sure you have fun while getting fit and healthy. We aim to guide you through movements as well as ways to correct diet and lifestyle.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT CROSSFIT

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. CrossFit uses same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

After being dragged to UNBXD FITNESS by my wife, I can honestly say this is my new home. Been part of UNBXD FITNESS family for almost a year now and I cant wait for my hour each day to go and exercise my body and mind. The friendliest people and coaches and just for the kick of it, some laughter with coach Mitchelle Merand (google her) with her “dad jokes” ever so often. Just come and try it for a day and I promise you, you’ll also be part of UNBXD FITNESS the very next day.
