The focus is squarely on functional training as Fitstop Bundaberg aims to build a strong foundation when it opens its doors for the first time on Saturday, 18 July.
The newest gym in the Bundaberg Region will be the home of functional group fitness and training, and is centrally located at the corner of Walla and Woongarra Streets.
Fitstop Bundaberg manager Natasha White said Fitstop would be a styled combination of HIIT (high intensity interval training) training and cross-fit, which was functional training that would help improve daily life by strengthening muscles to give the most benefit.
With her years of experience Natasha believes at Fitstop Bundaberg there is a place for everyone, and even the most novice gym goer would be motivated to reach their goal.
“We cater to all levels, so anyone who is thinking about joining for the first time, we start them off nice and light and they can always build up in their weight and performance as they go along,” she said.
Natasha said before the doors had even opened, 138 locals had signed up to take advantage of the new functional fitness training.
Fitsop Bundaberg's connection to Stroud Homes
Stroud Homes directors Aletha and Slade Walters, who are known for their award-winning prestigious homes, took on the challenge to open the new gym after seeing Aletha’s cousin Natasha’s passion for fitness and health.
Aletha said Fitstop Bundaberg would be cost effective, in particular for people who wanted a personal trainer experience and while working in a group.
“We are not a gym for equipment, you come in and we have qualified trainers and circuit work,” Aletha said.
“Male or female, there is no designated target market here, people of all different fitness levels can come in and have a go.
“It means instead of doing a one-on-one PT session, you can do it more cost effectively in a group with your friends, and still get that one-on-one attention.
“You don’t have to be super fit to come down and give it a go.”
Natasha said the Fitstop Bundaberg app would allow people to book in to take advantage of one of the three 45-minute classes.
“There are three different classes, the Fitstop formula: functional, fit and fast,” she said.
“Functional is your weight training and works on compound movements, building on your strength, Fast is a mix between weights and finishing off with cardio, and Fit is cardio-based building up the heart rate and endurance.”
Fitstop Bundaberg will open its doors at 6am on Saturday, with Triple M, Guzman Y Gomez and Lorna Jane on site to celebrate.
