My weight loss journey started 12 months after having my first child 8 years ago, I was diagnosed with Post – Natal Depression and was overweight and very unhappy with myself. I decided instead of turning to food like I had been I would start excercising! Well, playing Netball and losing 20kgs (whilst also having another child) turned into me leaving my desk job in an office and starting work as a receptionist in a gym. Falling in love with the Fitness Industry and people, I decided to become a Personal Trainer so I could motivate others to feel the same success I felt. 5 years Ago I started training with my own trainer and have lost an extra 10kgs, have built on lean muscle and became a Group Fitness Instructor. Becoming a Group Fitness Instructor was a massive achievement for me as someone who suffered from bad anxiety and was very awkward in social situations. Now I Love It!!! After 5 years of strength training I was looking for a new goal and a new direction so started doing extra conditioning work. After I realised I absolutely loved conditioning and the accomplishment it gave me I decided to apply for the first ever Australian Ninja Warrior (Intense Obstacle Course built over water), and guess what I got in!!!!! This will be the most mentally and physically taxing thing I have ever done in my life, but I’m excited to take on the challenge and see where I can take my body and my mine.
An Adelaide Gym with a difference!
One of our favourite things about Viva Fitness is the community feeling that so many of our members rave about. We have members who have made new best friends, members who have fallen in love and members who now have a great workout buddy.
Even our little Viva Fitness creche kids have found new besties.
Not all gyms are created equal when it comes to that feeling of community that comes with building a local gym that is member, not money focussed.
A lot of our members are long terms members and they keep coming back year after year not just for the exercise equipment and classes but for catching up with friends, feeling part of a team and to have fun.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” –Phil Jackson
We know that location and convenience are one of the key deciding factors in choosing a gym. If you want a local gym that is a bit different from the usual franchise gym, then Viva Fitness could be the gym for you.
Price is also something that we all need to take into account. There are loads of 24/7 gyms available in Adelaide. You have a huge range to choose from but when it comes to choosing a gym that you will be inspired to keep coming back to day after day, week after week, year after year you need to make sure you choose a gym that’s right for you.
I am sure many of us can count the amount of money we have wasted on gym memberships or fitness regimes that we have given up on half way through. Usually, the reason we give up is because it’s not sustainable.

When we choose to make a life change we need to make sure that it fits within our lifestyle. We need to make sure we have people around us that keep us on track.
That’s what the Viva difference is all about. We are a family owned gym which means that each and every one of our members is special to us. We want to make sure that our members don’t just join but they make the most out of their membership.

Our staff and our members are a part of our family, our members generally stay long term. Our members make friends with each other, and with our staff. We support each other.
So if you are looking for a gym where you can feel supported on your journey, a gym where it’s fun to come and workout, a gym where you are greeted by a friendly face.
