New year new you!

With a range of health and fitness providers in Mac Park, there's never been a better time to realise your goals.  Whether you want to shift those last few kilos or benefit from a flood of endorphins there's something for every body.

Within a 1.5km radius from the centre of Mac Park no less than 16 fitness companies appear on Google maps with many of the franchises such as Fitness FirstF45, Plus Fitness, and Vision Personal Training all having a presence in the precinct.  Many larger companies such as Optus offer subsidised gym facilities to staff and contractors, some are even open to the general public so its worth asking around.   

Besides regular gym and fitness studios the area also offers many unique opportunities to kick-start your fitness regime - we outline some of the best below:
