Live Fit Gym, the very first gym in Yarrabilba, opened in April 2019, and is well known throughout the area as the family gym.
Our culture and facilities are different to other franchised gyms which operate to a standard blueprint.
Our creed is that everyone is welcome. We encourage people of all ages, fitness levels and mobility to visit and enjoy training and socialising in our facility.
Meet the owners, Dwayne and Lena
Lena and Dwayne have a combined service of 44 years in the Army, with Lena still serving. They have four children, with their eldest daughter recently joining the Air Force.
“I value my time in the Defence Force immensely, particularly the physical training and working closely with like-minded people that you know you can totally rely on. Now I'm excited to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a gym and having the opportunity to shape the culture and facilities into being more than just a gym” said Dwayne.
When asked how Live Fit Gym is different to other gyms in the area, Dwayne and Lena shared: “As we are not a franchise we have the freedom to create an environment which is a happy place for all, where everyone of all ages and fitness levels are welcome. It is a place which reflects our holistic approach to health and fitness, and our values of honesty, respect, compassion, integrity, teamwork, and determination.”
Plans for the gym include:
- Adding more classes to increase variety for members
- Upgrading some of the equipment to ensure we offer a diverse range to assist with all types of training needs
- Providing facilities such as infrared saunas and ice-baths, so our members experience the enormous recovery value of hot-cold therapy after training
- Holding at least one event each month, to provide a variety training, team and socialising opportunities for our members and their families
- Extending our fund raising activities to continue to give to those who need a bit of help.
Support and Help
In addition to helping people get fit and healthy, we also like to give help to those who are doing it tough.
Some people are doing it tough financially, others need help and support with physical and mental health issues, others are in situations that they should not be in.
We are grateful to have the kind and generous support of our members, who regularly join in with our fund-raising activities and help us to make some kind of difference for people who need a boost.
