“Changing lives. Experience authenticity like never before.” More than Fitness, it’s a way of living that embraces Lifestyle and Wellbeing.
For over 138 years the Brighton Baths have been an iconic epicenter for local recreation in Melbourne – a place where people came to experience a sense of community. The Brighton Baths have outlasted 30 prime ministers, survived 2 world wars, and are one of only two remaining sea baths in all of Victoria. Community values are still at the heart of everything we do; however, the Brighton Baths have transmuted from a swim club into an all-inclusive, one-of-a-kind destination for Lifestyle, Wellbeing and Fitness.
Joining the Brighton Baths is more than just ‘joining a gym’, we truly are a one of kind facility where you’ll find yourself completely immersed in experiencing the diversity of this genuine Lifestyle Club. We look at each person as part of the collective whole – with consideration to the multitude of factors that lead to overall physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Subsequently, we have thoughtfully created a space where you can pursue your health and fitness goals in a professional setting, but also a place of respite where you can unwind from a busy week or spend quality time with friends and family. Whether it is delighting in a relaxing day at the beach, spending the day kayaking and picnicking with your partner, experiencing a yoga or meditation class for the first time right on water’s edge, enjoying the simplicity of reading a good book on the boardwalk as the sun goes down, or meeting a new friend – this place will nourish your mental and physical body.
The Brighton Baths Health Club is a unique and versatile facility that boasts a variety of services including:
One thing I love about being a member at the Baths is that there is such a strong sense of community and belonging as soon as you step in the doors, from the staff as well as from the members. It’s that human connection, combined with the unique peace and wellbeing you get from the natural environment, that keeps me coming back.

Just look at the birds, or the ships and boats plus the ever changing nature of the sea as you exercise. Meet families and mix with swimmers and athletes both young and old as they pursue their goals often in groups or with capable personal trainers. To me, Brighton Baths Health Club is an iconic oasis, good for your soul and body where friendly staff harmoniously mix with members using good equipment as they strive for something better.

Of all the gyms I have been to, both abroad and at home, Brighton sea baths is by far the most unique, holistic and community minded. Members converse in such a friendly and respectful manner, and the approachable people behind the desk, and instructors alike, greet everyone with such a warm welcome.
It has not only supported my fitness goals, but more importantly provided a nurturing space that fills the wellbeing 'holes' from a fast paced week. In winter, the Brighton Baths have been a real mood lifter, experiencing the amazing neurological benefits of cold water swimming. In summer my partner and I often make a 'day of it'; starting with a morning yoga class, a stand up paddle board (where we have spotted dolphins and hundreds of starfish) and finish with a swim.
Certainly one of the top places in Melbourne to refresh, rejuvenate, relax and restore.
