The idea for Movement Co started back as early as 2014 when Coaches Jacob and Jason had just graduated as personal trainers. Ready to take on the fitness world, they shared a love for Calisthenics and wanted to start a dream facility that united all of their favourite styles of movement under one roof. Jacob had recently got into CrossFit and loved the combination of weightlifting and bodyweight training which would eventually become the foundation of Movement Co’s philosophy. Jason was working as a personal trainer at a local 24/7 gym but felt kind of like the odd one out teaching his clients cool stuff like muscle ups, handstands and rings.
In late 2014 Jacob decided to take the plunge and begin looking for a home for Movement Co. He searched long and far across Perth checking out dozens of buildings before settling on the Osborne Park warehouse we now call home.
By mid 2015 the Movement Co we know today started to take shape. Jacob met Coaches Harry and Mat and began attending their Gymnastic Movement classes on weeknights to develop his bodyweight skills and soon they decided to come on board the team. Not long after, Jacob started hanging out with Coach Ben when they met at a Parkour jam and quickly the combined input from Jacob, Jason, Mat, Harry and Ben began to shape the design and community that would become the Movement Co Tribe that so many people are now proud to be part of.
On the 19th of December 2015 we had our official launch and have since grown to over 200 happy members and are now into our second exciting year.
