Viva Leisure opens three boutique fitness spaces in Tuggeranong precinct

Viva Leisure opens three boutique fitness spaces in Tuggeranong precinct
May 7, 2019

Viva Leisure has opened three boutique gyms at its new Tuggeranong precinct in the ACT with state-of-the-art technology that brings unprecedented features to members.

Located on Tuggeranong’s Soward Way, the exercise hub’s ground floor offers a Hiit Republic functional training space and Psycle Life group cycling studio while upstairs is Viva Leisure’s first ‘Studio By Club Lime’, a designated group fitness facility with leading-edge equipment.

Tailored for different member and exercise demands, Viva Leisure Manager, Fitness and Personal Training, Matt Eikenhout says the new Hiit Republic location is a specific model for Hiit-style training, commenting “the attention to detail is evident in the fit-out, this facility is second to none.

“As soon as you walk in, you see it is amazing, it has everything we in the fitness Industry get excited about.”

Following the success of the inaugural Kingston Foreshore Psycle Life, the Psycle Life studio, which will offer 18 live classes a week, offers 41 state-of-the-art Spin Bikes and an inspiring sound system.

The new concept, ‘Studio by Club Lime’ has been specifically designed for group fitness, classes such as body pump, body attack, yoga, balance, and more. In a huge group fitness room, it will open from 4 am to midnight, with 85 virtual classes (on at certain times without an instructor) projected on a magnificent four- metre wide, floor-to-ceiling television screen.

31 live classes a week will be run from this facility, including Les Mills classes such as GRIT, body balance and body combat.

Eikenhout added “it is a fantastic space, an amazing open layout with great lighting to ensure our members enjoy their experience.

“It offers the capability of doing a class between 4 am and midnight - the flexibility we all need.

“People are busy, and getting busier, so to have 116 classes on offer in Studio by Club Lime is exactly the options needed.”

Hiit Republic hosted a pre-opening work-out last week for people involved in the fitness industry, with Eikenhout advising “we received great feedback, the opening went off, the energy in the room and atmosphere was awesome.”

Hiit Republic customers can use wearable MyZone heart rate-based system, with Eikenhout advising “during a work-out, you have the options of having your heart rate displayed on a television screen showing you how hard you are working, and you can have a name only you know, shared with our coaches, of course. At the same time, the workouts will be displayed, and the coach will be running you through that workout.

“What is exciting a lot of people is outside of a class, for example, if you miss this morning’s 5:30 am class, and go in later in the day, you can go on Hiit Republic’s screen, look up the workout on one of our television screens, and do it.”

Workouts are stored, enabling access with friends at a later time, outside of peak periods. This means people stay up-to-date with classes, and avoid having an unforeseen setback, like a family illness.

Eikenhout concluded “we have a variety of different classes, one we are excited about is our ‘coaches personal workouts - the best workouts our coaches have run through themselves, offering the opportunity to see how you stack up against the coaches.

“Our coaches at Hiit Republic have been with Viva Leisure for several years, we are fortunate to have a huge pool to select from and put the best team we possibly can into these facilities.”

Platinum Club Lime members can upgrade to Hiit Republic access, or enjoy access to both Studio by Lime and Psycle Life.

Alphafit was among the suppliers who equipped the new facilities.
