Our Box

In our CrossFit Box you won’t find many machines – you are the machines! You won’t find mirrors or any unmotivated people. What you will find is a friendly community of like-minded people who work-out hard and have fun while doing so. We use rowers, bikes, barbells, dumb bells, plyometric boxes, gymnastic rings, ropes, kettle bells, pullup rigs, medicine balls…

Rules of the Box

Be friendly and introduce yourselves to new members (we are a community, we are in it together!).
We also expect you to repeat the following mantra: CrossFit is Awesome!


No Egos

No Excuses

Encourage Others

Work Hard

Have Fun!

Meet The Coaches

Nolan Hermans
Co-owner and Head Coach

Nolan grew up thoroughly enjoying all sports, particularly football and cricket, and once a teen, he started doing weights and gym type fitness as well. In 2000, he was given the opportunity to become Sports and Fitness Manager at a private sports club, where he completed his YMCA Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification. Nolan enjoyed his role there, which included coaching tennis, badminton and squash as well as other fitness classes to both adults and children.

Nolan’s passion and interest in CrossFit was sparked by watching the CrossFit Games on TV. He then completed his Level 1 CrossFit qualification in June 2014, and followed this up with his CrossFit Olympic Lifting course in October 2014 and gained his Level 2 CrossFit qualification in March 2019. He has also attended a calisthenics workshop, following his love for ‘gymnastics’ (bodyweight) movements.

Camilla Barton
Co-owner and Head Coach

Camilla has always enjoyed her sports, despite being overweight as a child. She has enjoyed being in all the school sports teams (yes, she was THAT child), from netball, to hockey, rounders, tennis and athletics. Outside of school, she advanced as far as playing badminton for the County, so probably best not to challenge her to a match.

Unsure entirely where her future lay, she went on to the University of Gloucestershire to complete her degree in Exercise and Health Science. She continued to be a regular gym goer, but more in spurts before often getting bored with doing the same thing and plateauing. We’ve all been there! Then she saw The CrossFit Games on TV and remembered watching in awe of these amazing athletes. She started practicing the CrossFit methodology and never looked back!

The idea of opening up a CrossFit Box was born, and CrossFit Incursion opened up just 6 months later. Camilla passed her Level 1 CrossFit qualification in June 2014, and followed this up with her CrossFit Mobility course in December 2015, and gained her Level 2 CrossFit qualification in March 2019. She has since also studied and gained her Level 5 Diploma as an Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor in March 2020, where she now aims to help others in their quest to become healthier, as well as fitter!
