Train with us on your next holiday in Byron Bay or on one of our exclusive fitness retreats abroad

We have our own personal training and class studio in Suffolk Park, Byron Bay. Please contact us if you would like to organise sessions for you and/or your group whilst visiting Byron Bay. For information on our style of fitness training (in Byron Bay and on our retreats), please see below.

Take your fitness to new levels

Mostly all of the training we do is "functional", meaning we combine a variety of movement patterns using different types of equipment or body weight to improve our overall day to day strength, cardio fitness and mobility.  Typically we use kettlebells, free-weights, racks, cables, resistance bands, TRX straps, Medicine balls, sandbags and of course our bodies!  Our training sessions are challenging, however there is lots of encouragement and we try not to take ourselves too seriously despite the fact that we may all be working very hard!  In everything we do, our goal is for you to learn, go outside of your comfort zone and improve, whilst having fun.  So be prepared to sweat and have a few laughs along the way.

All our packages include classes and group training, with some packages including personal training (we will match a personal trainer based on your goals from one of the areas below).  Training can take place indoors at our fully equipped facility and outdoors (on the beach or park).

Some of our holiday participants are personal trainers, athletes and coaches, seeking a challenge or ways of enhancing their fitness repertoire.  Examples include surfers, marathon runners, rugby or football players. Other participants are fitness enthusiasts looking to maintain and freshen up their fitness routine while on holiday (or even kick start it).  Others are couples, families or groups who want to do something fun and positive together as a team.

We also do more personalised programs for individuals or athletes that have specific injuries or want to enhance performance, range and power for a specific sport. 

Here is a summary of the type of training you might do on a typical fitness holiday with us:

  • HIIT Training (High Intensity Interval Training). Typically circuit style combining cardio and weights, using a range of equipment such as air-bikes, rowers, treadmills, kettlebells, ViPR, TRX, free-weights, sandbags, cables, resistance bands, battle ropes etc.

  • Sport/Performance specific (power, mobility etc.)

  • Strength and Resistance Training

  • Cardio (varying intensities)

  • Boxing

  • Mobility training

  • Bodyweight / Ground / Animal Flow

  • Corrective/Postural

  • Pilates (mostly reformers but can include other equipment)

  • Injury recovery and prevention (specifically shoulder, lower back, knee and hip)

  • VIPR (strength, mobility and performance)

  • Ginastica Natural (Byron Bay retreats only)

Its not about aesthetics, instagram followers, getting ripped in 12 weeks, not eating this and doing that. Fitness is about people, lifestyle and health.
