From the very beginning One Fitness was born from a place of evolution.
Back in 1996, we opened as one of Australia’s first personal training studios.
Only months later we realized that our clients didn’t want to head off to a big commercial gym to perform their day-to-day exercise, they wanted something more private, with a greater focus on community and results.
It was from this realization that the foundation of the One Fitness model was created.
Fast forward 12 (or so) years – the GFC was hitting the economy hard and there was a new training method emerging in the exercise science world – HIIT. As response to making personal training more affordable, while also taking advantage of this new science, we introduced Reboot, small group training…revolutionary at the time.
The final piece of the puzzle was 24-hour fitness. Club Director Dave Owen, was studying trends in the US when he stumbled across the 24-hour model. Fitting perfectly under the company mantra of “removing the obstacles that prevent people from exercising” One Fitness implemented a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness model and in doing so was the first independent health club in Melbourne to make this adaptation.
