Train hard, play harder.

In 2014 Khan Porter founded CrossFit Play in Drummoyne Sydney NSW. From a humble little space we journeyed through 3 interesting industrial locations to 2019 when we opened the headquarters we now know and love here in Camperdown Sydney.

Khan is well know for his many CrossFit Games appearances over the past 10 years, Sam has been in the CrossFit scene just as long with 3 regionals appearances herself. After meeting through competition, Sam was the best choice for a Business partner to keep the gym running while Khan was competing.

Our venture grew in 2022 to a regional area with the second location in East Maitland NSW, Sam’s home turf. Members from both locations enjoying the benefits of being part of a bigger community with support and experience that is far greater than one gym can provide.
