In late 2020, our current Mt Waverley campus will be relocating to a brand new, custom built facility based at the Oakleigh Pool and Recreation Centre (2 Park Road, Oakleigh). This new venue (only 9 minutes from our current Mt Waverley campus) will give us:

  • More than double the size of our current gym
  • Permanent viewing area for parents
  • Brand new change rooms, lockers, toilets and reception
  • New medical rooms
  • Much larger office space
  • and much more!

We are confident that the new gym will be one of the best in Australia!
