About

Our Story

Our Coastal Bodies Community first opened its doors in 2009. Since then, we’ve grown from a tiny, one-shop studio into the best personal training studio in Coogee. Now, with so many gyms and studios for you to choose from, that may be a pretty big claim — but let me tell you why we’re the best and what we do that’s different.

We hear it time and again that people want to be healthier, happier, fitter, slimmer or just feel better, but don’t like the idea of joining a larger studio or gym chain. There could be a number of reasons for this, but we find most people are worried about being judged or simply feel intimidated by environments where they don’t know anyone and they feel like no-one cares. That’s where we come in!

The environment at our personal training studio isn’t just professional, because in all honesty that’s what every studio or gym should be. Rather, we focus on the experience you have training with us — and that means providing you with a relaxed, fun, supportive and encouraging atmosphere. It doesn’t matter what walk of life you’re from, age you are or shape you’re in, we aim to make you feel at home and comfortable in our studio. We’re not a selfie-taking, shirtless six-pack and bikini-body focused Community (though we can help you with all of that too). What we are, is a home-away-from-home … a place where everyone knows your name, listens to and respects your personal dreams and desires, and helps you get to where you want to be. Our clients range in age from 10 years to 80 years, and fitness levels from post-operative rehab stage to competing in marathons, which means we’re pretty sure you’ll fit right in no matter your goals.

So if you have jiggly bits… bring them to us. If you’re afraid of being seen with a sweaty, red face — don’t be … come join us. If you’re struggling with physical or medical issues … you can rely on us. Not keen on exercise? We’ll make it fun. Love to train? We’ll push you. Hate gyms? You’ll love our studio … so come and try us!
