If you are heading to Perth for a holiday and want to keep in shape, then I have got you covered with the best fitness classes around Perth outlined below! If you live in Perth and haven’t yet tried these awesome classes then I’d get your bottom into gear and give these studios a go!
Bodies By Ryan (@bodies_by_ryan)
Top of my list and for a good reason, it was the one place in Perth I found myself constantly returning to. Gyms can be very intimidating places for some – even for me – but Ryan and the team are so welcoming. You can tell Ryan is extremely passionate about what he does, not only does he know every single one of his members along with their likes and dislikes but he goes above and beyond in pushing them accordingly.
Ryan offers circuit based classes as well as strength and conditioning classes which are all really well thought out and planned in advance. Just take one look at Ryan’s Instagram account (@bodies_by_ryan) and you will instantly see the hard work and dedication he puts into his clients, from their training to their nutrition.
There is a real sense of community at this gym and I met some very lovely people whilst attending the classes here.
If you want a challenging workout and to transform yourself then look no further – this is the place for you!
MVMT Society (@mvmtsociety)
A ‘new’ style of mat pilates, one that is guaranteed to get your body hurting in places you didn’t know were physically possible. Each class is held with such professionalism. The classes always start and finish on time and are instructed with fluidity. Elise manages to give attention to everyone in the class, correcting their form along the way whilst cueing the next move in a very clear manner. Leave the class feeling like you have seriously worked your core and glutes, grown an inch taller and re-aligned your body. Love it!
Bike Bar (@bikebarfitness)
A cardio party on a bike. For those of you who don’t know, I really love my spinning classes so I was really looking forward to getting my behind on a bike again as it had been a while!
So, I decided to book myself into an early morning class at Bike Bar as I had only heard great things since they opened in November. I walked into the studio for my first class looking a bit lost and clearly had ‘first timer’ written across my forehead but not to worry as the lovely owners, Lauren and JD were quick to introduce themselves and show me around their beautiful studio.
Zara was the instructor for the class, she had a killer playlist which made the class so much fun, she really knew how to motivate everyone whilst keeping the energy in the room really high. The class was such fun that it was over before I knew it – 45 minutes of cardio, the best way to start the day!
Fierce Fitness Australia (@fierce_fitness_austalia)
If you want to get your sweat on then head to Fierce Fitness Australia for a boxing or a strength and conditioning class. The classes here are great and are targeted at all fitness levels. Starting the class off with some skipping, then onto boxing drills and combinations which are designed to build strength, get you sweating and de-stressed before finishing with some core strengthening exercises. I had an awesome class with Brad who I would highly recommend!
Cardea Pilates (@cardeapilates)
Cardea pilates is a beautiful new reformer pilates studio which offer dynamic classes to help strengthen and elongate your body. Em was an amazing instructor, her classes focus on integrating more dynamic forms of exercise into the practice, meaning that they are more demanding than your usual reformer pilates classes. Improve your strength, balance and flexibility all in the one class! The studio is fresh, clean and is filled with beautifully scented candles.
Movement hub (@movementhub_hilton)
The classes at Movement Hub are great if you want to improve your technique in strength based exercises and movements. The trainers have such great knowledge and will be able to help you improve or even help start your strength based journey. The classes here are for everyone, so don’t be intimidated by Olympic lifting or Crossfit style workouts, the team will help you reach your potential as an individual.
The great outdoors – (Jacobs ladder, Kings park, beach walk)
When in Australia, get active outdoors! You don’t need to spend your money to keep fit and healthy in Perth. With its breath-taking coastline and beautiful parks, Perth has something for everyone. Go for an early morning swim or jog along the beach, a walk through kings park and if you’re really up for a challenge (with a view I might add) then hit Jacobs ladder which is a set of steps on cliff street in Kings Park, 242 steps from the top to the bottom – work on your stamina and try and do as many rounds as possible.
Revolution sports is an affordable gym with various locations around Perth – they even offer indoor cricket! They have a wide range of equipment suited to everyone’s different training styles and the staff are always so helpful and friendly.
Other studios in Perth that I really enjoy and haven’t mentioned here are 5th Element fitness, Core Focus Pilates, Pure Moves, Box and Bike, Power living yoga, LA Fit and Goodlife health clubs for another gym. As you can see – spoilt for choice and no excuse not to get up and get moving!
