Fitzroy's freshest studio is open!

After a long awaited renovation, the bright and airy new space at Fitzroy Swimming Pool graced it's first visitors this week. Now that's news worthy of a few sun salutations! Group fitness classes are back and running as normal.

During the closure, we ran extra classes in the gym (upstairs) and at Collingwood which are no longer running. However, due to popular demand, we're keeping the Thursday 6.10am Strength class at Fitzroy on the timetable! 

Read more about the new space and get the timetable. If you haven't already, be sure to pop in and check out the new space soon!

New group fitness classes

Summer's nearly here! To celebrate, we've launched TWO new Functional Training classes:

Functional Training (FT) Circuit is designed to get you fitter, stronger and leaner by combining high intensity strength and cardio efforts using the latest functional training equipment.

Functional Training (FT) Torso will get your core firing while improving overall strength and posture using a combination of equipment and bodyweight training.

Both classes run for 45 minutes and are suitable for all fitness levels. Watch our instructors run though the ropes here!

New Yarra Tri timetable

Warmer days are here, that means summer season at Yarra Triathlon!

From Monday 12 November, the Friday morning run will switch to an open water swim for the summer period. Pack your togs and get your copy of the new Yarra Triathlon timetable.

Are you game to try this gym challenge?

November gym challenge

One week down, three to go! The November Gym Challenge is a tough one. Count your way down through 4 rounds of squats, push-ups, lunges and situps with a burpee (everyone's favourite) in between each set. Finish it off with a sweaty 400m treadmill run and you'll earn your entry into the epic prize draw! 

Our Gym Instructors are armed with giveaways for those brave enough to attempt it, and a lucky winner at each centre will score a FREE month of full membership at Yarra Leisure.

To get the most out of this challenge, we encourage you to complete the circuit several times during the month. Try to beat your previous time and see your fitness progress over the next few weeks.

Game? Check out the full workout details for Collingwood, Fitzroy and Richmond.
