We offer women easy-to-understand, flexible memberships. That’s it.

Soul Fit offers a range of indoor and outdoor training classes, as well as personal and specialised small group training. Our small group training options include TRX (suspension training) and our signature “Sweat and Shred” 8 week program.  Soul Fit has also recently introduced a teen specific program called ‘She Shines’, which is an 8 week program. At Soul Fit you’ll have a choice of over 50 classes per week. Our certified trainers program each individual session, which means no two classes are ever the same. You won’t get bored and you’ll always be challenged. Take a closer look at our class descriptions for more detailed information on how we’ll get your soul fired up and body sweating. We have child-minding services available Monday through to Friday from 9-12pm and for a variety of outdoor sessions. Soul Fit is open from 5am to 10pm every day. SoulFit is also an approved Active Kids and NDIS provider.

Meet Alex and Alita. They’re passionate about what they do. When they couldn’t find what they were looking for in a gym 14 years ago, they decided to join forces and create their own. So in sync is this dynamic duo that they even gave birth on the same day! Alex and Alita are incredibly proud of Soul Fit and their amazing team of trainers. Soul Fit is acommunity-driven studio that’s made by women, for women.

Alex Blake - Owner / Operator / Mum

Local mum and businesswoman Alex has two children aged six and three. She understands the demands everyday life can place on women and families. Alex often shares her own health and fitness experiences (the ups and the downs!) with Soul Fit members.

Alex is relatable, genuine and passionate about empowering women. She is heavily involved in local charities including International Women’s Day and Camp Quality.

In her past life Alex was the Publicity and Promotions Director at WIN Television. However the pull of health and fitness was too strong and she now loves helping make positive change to women’s lives.

And if that doesn’t impress you then her magic ability of remembering every Soul Fit members’ name certainly will!

Alita Ashcroft - Owner / Operator / Mum

Local mum and businesswoman Alita has three children aged eight, six and three. Alita is often training for events including running festivals and triathlons (she’s even finished a half ironman) and understands the tricky juggle of family, work, health and fitness.

Alita is supportive, inspiring and passionate about educating women and passing on her extensive health and fitness knowledge to Soul Fit members. She believes in a balanced approach to well-being and even admits to being partial to an egg and bacon roll from time to time.

In her past life Alita was a schoolteacher. But then she met Alex, and the rest, they say, is history.

And some insider info on Alita…. visit Soul Fit and watch her on the TRX – you’ll never need to pay for pricey Cirque du Soleil tickets again!
