The Monday Muscle Coffee House

We are taking our pop up coffee house at CrossFit Huntsman full time! All day, every day, for everyone! Be involved in something special...

We did it!

On 14th Apr 2018 we successfully raised £1,560 of £550 target with 34 supporters in 56 days

New stretch target

We didn't want to over do it, but the response has been fantastic! All extra funding will be put in place to make the space an even better place for all!


Monday Muscle Coffee House is an independent coffee house, snack bar and social space, based on the premises of CrossFit Huntsman (a recognised, reputable CrossFit gym) in Hertford Heath, Hertfordshire - due to open in May 2018. 

The concept is a simple (but a super tasty) one; we want to transform a designated area of the CrossFit gym into a fully-fledged social and eating area, for not only the members of CrossFit Huntsman, but the local community also. A space to grab a coffee and a brownie (nutritionally balanced, of course!) – a space to relax and unwind with friends - a space where you can work, and get a workout. 

Along with themed social events, we’ll be serving up coffee, tea, shakes and snacks, as well as always being on hand to advise on all things nutrition. 

Why Monday Muscle?

I started Monday Muscle (, a health and nutrition hub as an outlet for me to discuss just that with like-minded people. People who are up at the crack of dawn, work hard, get home late, have kids to feed and entertain, second jobs, third jobs even. People who feel like pretty much all of their time is taken up by things other than looking after themselves, but they still strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I quickly realised that I wasn’t alone and the daily struggles I was going through were being mirrored by people not only close to me, but by others across the board, young to old, small to large.

From those humble beginnings, Monday Muscle has grown to a fully working trademarked company. Helping over 120 people over 18 months change the way they eat through education, understanding and support. In early 2017, CrossFit Huntsman gave us the opportunity to bring a pop up coffee house into their premises and serve coffees, shakes and tasty nutritional snacks to their members. With that, we were able to talk all things nutrition face to face - with the very type of people our services are tailored to help. 

The feedback and success of the multiple pop up’s we’ve ran since our first, have meant the idea of the Monday Muscle Coffee House becoming a permanent fixture has been borne. Thanks to CrossFit Huntsman, we are now looking to do just that, within their Hertfordshire premises.
