Located at the Mackay Showgrounds, on the edge of the CBD our humble CrossFit Gym is a haven for functional fitness here in Mackay! We are well known for our friendly coaches, our friendly supportive community and we also have all the functional training tools you need so you never have to spend your time waiting for equipment.
You’ll love training here with us plus for the busy Mums and Dads out there, we offer child minding too. Our coaches are always there for you, whether that’s in group classes or if you prefer private coaching. At CrossFit 4740, we’ll push you outside your comfort zone but we’ll make it fun where you probably won’t even realise it!
Our professionally trained and expert coaches actively coach each class that you attend. Personal coaching like this would normally cost a fortune in traditional gyms, but here at CrossFit 4740, the coaching session is included in all our memberships.
Our program uses functional movements that your body is naturally designed to do, combining elements of cardio, gymnastics, weightlifting, cycling, rowing, and more to improve your overall fitness in a balanced way.
Need to train but have kids tagging along? No problem! At CrossFit 4740 we have child minding at selected sessions so you get your daily movement fix!
At CrossFit 4740, our community is our greatest strength. You’ll make lifelong friends to help inspire, challenge and motivate you. We train together, socialise together, and inspire each other to do our best and achieve our best!

OWNER + COACH
I have been coaching at CrossFit 4740 part time for the past 2 years… But previously in my earlier days of my working life as an apprentice I had developed bad habits in my lifestyle, which continued for the next 4 to 5 years. The turning point for me personally was when I hit 100kgs and I was in the Doctor’s office for medical conditions surrounding my lifestyle.
I had previously been heavily involved in representative rugby union and rugby league but due to work commitments I had stopped playing all forms of sport. Through commitment to changes in my nutrition and exercise I have been able to lose a total of 33kgs, which has drastically improved my health, meaning no medication and I also reduced the frequency I suffered from illnesses.
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I have made the career change and seized the opportunity to make CrossFit my full time career. It is my desire to help others achieve their goals through creating a friendly environment where they could learn and train at CrossFit 4740.
Hi my name is Tenielle . I’ve been doing CrossFit since the end of 2018 and started coaching early 2020. I first joined CrossFit because I was bored at the gym, I wasn’t motivated or seeing results so I was looking for something different and new!! I bit the bullet and went to my first CrossFit class and I was hooked. Since then I have fallen in love with the training style and more importantly the community in CrossFit. Before becoming a CrossFit coach I was a part time personal trainer however I quickly realised that CrossFit is my passion and I wanted to share that with others.
Hi it’s me Tash, there are so many reasons I love CrossFit, but first – it sets something inside of me on FIRE. Everything about CrossFit is great, it has made me the strongest and healthiest I have ever been. Everything about coaching lights a spark in me. I love seeing wins every day, I thrive on watching people improve themselves and I am inspired by the amount of hard work I see around me day in and day out. Seeing the changes that people make after coming to the gym and intentionally improving their life and lifestyle is nothing short of magical. Being able to be a part of that change is something I will always be grateful for. Coaching is a passion for me – plain and simple. I love coaching, and I love helping others improve. It’s all I think about day in and day out! #myhappyplace
