Get started with your fitness journey at Active Merri-bek.

Whether you want to get your heart pumping with some cardio, work on your strength using our weights, or train for that next sporting event – with help from our staff and our equipment, our gyms will support your workout.

Gym programs

We run a range of fitness programs across the Active Merri-bek sites. All members are entitled to a comprehensive planning session where specific goals and desired results are explored, then our trainers will tailor an individualised training program to suit your needs. Our gym staff can customise programs for people of all levels of ability and fitness, from the beginner to the elderly, more advanced clients and those requiring injury rehabilitation.

Continue at your own pace and change your program when it suits you. We encourage you to have your program re-assessed by our staff every six to eight weeks. We offer a personal success plan to every member as a free service with every membership.

We also offer fitness options for young people and older adults. Take a look at our group fitness classes and Active Seniors and Active Youth memberships.
