About Us

Energize Fitness & Weight Loss was first established in 2008 to cater for people seeking to achieve fitness and weight loss in a family friendly environment. Our family owned, completely independent gym has the flexibility to offer no upfront fees and contracts, so you won't be bound to monthly payments.

We have several highly trained instructors who lead 30 minute work outs, assisting clients in setting and achieving their goals. Motivating, developing, mentoring and monitoring them during this process so they continue to accomplish their personal aims. For clients who need to be at a gym for health reasons, we are focused on making them feel welcome and comfortable in this no egos, no judgement and no pressure environment.

Our clients love to be driven to achieve great results in fitness and weight loss, often personally reporting that once they've achieved their current goal they have re-assessed and identified a more difficult goal to aim for. We take great pride in motivating our clients to fulfil their personal objectives, whether these are to tone up, build fitness or just to attain a general sense of well being. Our vision as a company centres on results being measured in good health, fitness, trimming centimetres and weight loss, not building bulk muscle mass.

We all have home and work pressures and life changes which is why Energize Fitness & Weight Loss is flexible allowing members to stop or restart attending the gym at will, although notice is required. Come and meet with us to discuss how we can help you achieve your goals today.
