Fitness For All

GFitness in Freshwater will be the high tech gym that forms part of the new multi-million Harbord Diggers complex. But the health club is already making its mark in the area, as COVERED. found out.

Open for just a year, GFitness is already setting new standards in the competitive area of personal fitness. While the health club may be targeting the older section of the population with its links to the Diggers, it is attracting a wide-ranging clientele by offering a varied program.

Manager of GFitness Paul Collins, has coached elite athletes from Olympians and Paralympians to NRL star Jarryd Hayne as he tried to break into the US NFL.

“I am managing a team here like you manage a sports team. When we talk about fitness and results I am involved in mentoring the other trainers and coaches and customer services team.

“The secret with exercise is not being confined to one type. We have lots of variety through classes, personal coaching, programs and equipment, including techno gym equipment. It is all about health and wellbeing at the end of the day,” explains Paul.

Variety Is the Spice of Life

Everyone who joins he gym gets a personalised program worked out with staff to establish their fitness goals and allow them to pursue goal orientated training – whatever their age.

Paul Gill, owner of GFitness, says the health club is successfully building a relationship with the community and setting high standards in personal fitness that will only be enhanced when the business moves into state-of-the-art premises at Harbord Diggers in a couple of years.

Paul Gill explains, “One of the reasons we wanted to be involved is because of the village atmosphere and clients that appreciate a high level of service.

“We are not just about price and although we are working in a temporary facility, people appreciate the level of service we provide with classes, personal training, the latest gym equipment, change rooms, personal programs and advice available on fitness and nutrition. We are a health club in every sense of the word.”

Classes range from the newly introduced High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions, though to Pilates, cycle, strength conditioning, Zumba, body pump, stretch, yoga and the Boomer classes designed for clients in the older age category.

Owner Paul says that while seniors enjoy an array of daytime classes there is a younger crowd dominating the evening sessions and while they enjoy high intensity sessions they turn to more sedate options for stretching and conditioning.

The new premises will boast access to a pool, three separate studios concentrating on different classes, all equipped with cutting edge equipment.

But just a year after opening GFitness has reached up to 1000 customers and is likely to exceed this before the end of the year. They already appear to have the winning formula to succeed in what is an increasingly competitive fitness marketplace.
