Chris Templeman
(Head Coach / Co-owner CrossFit Clitheroe)

I have been in the exercise industry for over 15 years now, teaching in every aspect of health and fitness, testing out new and old exercise methodology.

In 2008-2009 I was teaching alot of group fitness classes using industry standard methodology such as Bodypump and the like. I was also doing a lot of 1-1 personal training sessions, unsurprisingly I found that my own 1-1 sessions were getting better results than the larger groups, and I put this down to mainly the constant variety of exercise that we were doing in the 1-1 sessions compared to the repetitive choreographed group fitness sessions. So I began putting medium sized groups together of 10-15 and programming my own sessions. These sessions proved to be very popular and quickly produced excellent results with the added advantage of not hitting the pocket of my clients too hard. Around about this time I discovered CrossFit which basically mirrored what I had already started to implement into my own teaching so unsurprisingly I soon came to embrace CrossFit. And the rest as they say is history.

In 2009 I began to make plans for CrossFit Clitheroe and I began to search for premises. I was determined to provide an incredible, well equipped facility unlike any other CrossFit box in the UK. I  visited other boxes and quickly realised that many of them were much alike. I decided I would have something different. And different I certainly got at Primrose Mill! I believe we are amongst the best equipped boxes in Europe.

Personally I have had the most pleasure from seeing our members achieve incredible results. Long may that continue.

The Difference
The difference between us and other gyms
Here at CrossFit Clitheroe every member has a name not a number. We pride ourselves in making every person that walks through the door feel welcome and part of the community.


We understand that joining a gym environment can be a daunting prospect, so we make sure that through every step of the CrossFit Clitheroe journey there is a Coach available to help and guide you.


We pride ourselves in the fact that our goal is your success.

The First
CrossFit Clitheroe was the first CrossFit affiliate in Lancashire.
There are many other types of fitness training facilities within Lancashire but none quite like us and we apply our dues to CrossFit unlike others who simply live off the name!


At CrossFit Clitheroe we aim to provide our members with a much more personal service and include them in our wonderful community; don’t just take our word for it,


visit our Success Stories to see what our members think.

The Experience
We recognise that we are not for everyone but experience has proved to us that as one of the fastest growing gyms in the UK people really do take to us.


Our success stories paint the picture for us but although we have many imperfections the testimonials we receive from visitors from near and far inform us that we are on the right track. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than welcoming members from neighbouring towns and cities. We wonder can any other gym in the locality have members from Lancaster, Preston, Blackburn, Burnley, and Accrington?


Members who are willing to travel miles to share the experience. Come and give us a try just like they did!
