.RESULTS BASED TRAINING: PERSONALISED TRAINING DESIGNED FOR YOU

FRIENDLY – EFFECTIVE – REWARDING

The Northside Movement ethos is that you can achieve your health and fitness goals whilst still living a normal life and we offer a range of training packages so you can experience expertly led exercise on your terms.
Founded by Mike & Natalie; Northside Movement is a passionately-run, boutique gym that started in Clifton Hill with a vision of bringing a better quality of training to the inner north. Originally, we were a Women’s Only Training facility where we got to experience the inclusiveness and genuine support for everyone training inside our walls and the importance of a space where you were accepted for who you are and automatically became one of the tribe. Since then, we have diversified our Personal and Group training programs to offer experiences for both Women and Me where sweating, occasionally swearing and lifting weights is normal practice.. and all in a safe and supporting environment. Our private and welcoming gym has been meticulously designed to provide the highest quality of exercise equipment in a hygienic environment and plenty of space to spread out (and obviously enjoy a game of table tennis).

No longer do you need to be intimidated when you’re training at the gym or try to stay motivated without support. We pride ourselves in keeping people in the game and recognise the need for a training space that rewards effort, teamwork and uniqueness over appearance and ego. With PLENTY of Womens Only Classes, LOADS of social events and RECOGNITION of milestones.. We aim to make your time at the studio your best hour of the day.

Lose fat. Build muscle. Get stronger. Improve Confidence. Feel healthier, happier, fitter!

This is an incredible gym! Nat, Mike and Jess are the best trainers I have ever worked with. They make you feel comfortable no matter what fitness level you are or what injuries or health conditions you are working with. There is an amazing community of people attend and I always find working out enjoyable and challenging - you will leave feeling amazing. It really is everything you want in a gym!

I have found that injury and soreness have never been a barrier to exercise at Northside. Each trainer has a high level of expertise when it comes to adapting training programs for injury whilst supporting you in building strength, mobility, general fitness and morale.The Northside team go above and beyond in everything they do! Thank you all!

I have been training with Mike for many years now and I have so much respect for his knowledge and passion for fitness. This is truly evident in the way he (and Nat) have built and continue to build Northside Fitness! It feels wrong to call it a gym, because it is so much more than that. They definitely know how to motivate safe and fun movement that pushes you beyond your goals no matter your training level!

The program offering is a pretty unique fitness experience that builds on physical and mental strength, and it does it in a friendly, nurturing and welcoming environment. Driven by a very genuine passion and commitment to its community (members) Mike, Nattie and co trainers make sure individuals’ needs are met. As a women specific program it is there to push individuals’ performance for personal results, continually varied, and for ever challenging but fun. Achievements are recognized and celebrated but more importantly the sense of belonging and encouragement from Mike and team are supported by the women who recognize the point of difference offered - genuine care and interest on every individual’s experience and fitness development.

I was recommended this gym by a friend and I have to say it’s one of the best recommendations I’ve been given. The trainers are fun, friendly and push you to be your best. The small class style works for me as I love to be pushed and kept accountable by my fellow (now friends) gym-goers. I feel like this place builds a family environment where you are safe and encouraged to get the best from yourself. I highly recommend Northside Movement!

Such an awesome, inclusive, training community we are honoured and privileged to be apart of. We are always, challenged, inspired and encouraged by the amazing women (and on the odd occasion head trainer Mike deserves a shout out for being awesome too)! We also value the non diet, size diversity culture!!

Love these guys - I have been seeing Mike for a while now and love every session. Mike is very understanding, compassionate, passionate, intelligent in his own craft. I feel I get my moneys worth every time and I can not thank him and the team enough for the support in my health and wellbeing. If you are looking for somewhere to train - please go and see Mike and team they will go that extra mile for you. Thank you guys!

I highly recommend Pride Athletic! The workouts are full of variety and the class sizes are not too large giving you the opportunity to be coached closely on technique. The trainers (Ben, Steph and Danni!) are knowledgeable, friendly and will always help you work to your goals at your own pace. Even more importantly, it's fun! Every class is full of friendly, funny and kind women who all want to have fun whilst getting fit! It's the best gym I have ever been to.

My experience at Pride has been nothing but fantastic! This gym fosters such a caring, genuine environment created by an exceptional group of coaches and members. Whilst we work hard (and sweat plenty!!) there is also lots of laughter, craziness and good times :-)The owner Matt has done a great job of hiring coaches (Danni, Ben and Steph) who encourage and support everyone and know how to work with each of us to help us achieve our goals, whatever they may be. They guide us through our ups and downs, help not just with the physical aspect of training but also the emotional.If you are a little hesitant to try it out, don't be...one session and you'll be hooked and looking forward to your daily slice of exercise pie 🙂
