“The ocean front views are intoxicating and I love that I can connect with nature before, during, and after my work-out. There is no better motivation.” We believe exercise should not always be about having a “work-out,” depleting an already stressed body of vital energy. A sensible, long-term approach to exercise and movement should include a “work-in,” which involves building energy, reducing stress, lifting your mood and hence, placing yourself in a stronger, more balanced position, with a greater sense of well-being.
Situated right on water’s edge, take in views of Port Phillip Bay and breathe in the fresh ocean air while working out in our indoor gym.
More than 7 years ago, I came out of years of working hard in the corporate legal world in the city of Melbourne, and really needed to get fit, and get my life back. I happened to walk past the Baths, and was encouraged to give it a try, and subsequently joined up - as a result I use it nearly every day ever since, and having discovered open water swimming at the Baths I became hooked. It got me back to a fit and healthy life - and having met many great people with similar stories it’s become a part of my life.

The open environment with the panoramic sea views to contemplate whilst exercising is so unique to anything I have ever experienced. The collective community feel with the history of Brighton Baths is quite unlike any other gymnasium in Melbourne!

Group fitness classes at the Brighton Baths have given us the opportunity to experience movement in a positive, memorable and purposeful way, inspiring meaningful change both physically and mentally. The beach is basically our local gym. There is nothing like being right on water’s edge…it’s unique and the sand makes our workout even more efficient. After our workout, all we have to do is jump in the water to cool down - it’s amazing!
