Piripi Neho-Popata


Co-Owner, Trainer

Piripi, like most Kiwi kids,  has been involved in sports since a young age. Representing College  & Regional teams for Rugby and eventually recieving a contract to play Rugby League in Australia. P has always been a natural at most sports.

P stumbled upon CrossFit when his then girlfriend (now wife) invited him to join her at the gym she attended. They had just started CrossFit classes but weren’t the typical CrossFit Box. The workout involved  Snatches, Cleans & Box Jumps. He remembers there was no technique, or ‘proper coaching’ and he was lucky being physically strong and fit, and basically muscled his way through the workout. However that’s where P's passion for CrossFit started. He loved the intensity and variety that CrossFit offered.
