Roseberry Queensland are the lead agency behind a new program called the Hunger Games, designed to engage with young people who would benefit from fitness and dietary advice.

The program, coordinated by Headspace in collaboration with Megan Lane Dietician and CrossFit Escape, will involve access to two CrossFit classes a week and one cooking class per week for eight weeks.

Matt D'Arcy, owner of Crossfit Escape said CrossFit is not intimidating.

"Every class we have different age ranges and ability ranges, (I saw a video) of an 87-year-old doing CrossFit last week, he was killing it," he said.
