After a competitive process Melbourne Polytechnic have signed a 42 month contract with YMCA Victoria to manage the Melbourne Polytechnic Preston Fitness Centre.
The contract provides YMCA Victoria with further opportunity to deliver fitness and tailored community programs and services for the strong membership base of students, staff and community. This includes new equipment for virtual group fitness as well as body composition scanning.
