About Us

Here at LIFT Fitness, we specialise in providing quality small-group functional fitness and weightlifting classes.

All our classes are specifically designed to be accessible for all abilities, so you can improve your strength and fitness, no matter what your current fitness level is.

All our class sizes are capped to ensure everyone receives individual feedback from the coach to help improve their technique and performance, so you’ll always have a helping hand to guide you through your session.

Participating in a regular and sustainable fitness regime has a whole host of health benefits. Including, but not limited to: improving your ability to perform day-to-day activities; maintaining bone density as you age; lowering blood pressure; and helping to improve and maintain physical and mental health.

What makes us different?

We specialise in the use of functional fitness movements to improve the strength, endurance, and performance of our members.

Our classes include elements of weightlifting, bodyweight movements, and cardiovascular exercise to give our members a well rounded form of fitness that keeps them engaged and motivated towards their individual goals.
