By: Geelongs Gym on 9th May 2018 in Life Lessons Comments are off for this post.

There is a common saying that actions speak louder than words, but often we don’t give a whole lot of thought to what that really means in our busy day-to-day lives. Recently, I had to drop everything and return to Canada to visit my gravely ill sister. It’s not a cheap or quick trip and I […]

Why Men should do Yoga

By: Gerard Spriet on 23rd January 2018 in Fitness Classes, Yoga Comments are off for this post.

Once upon a time, when you spoke to men about yoga, they almost immediately had images of Lululemon-clad women chanting verses of Sanskrit while bending their bodies into impossible positions.

How many times have you started an effort to better yourself only to try for a week and then throw in the towel? Most people struggle to reach their goals. It isn’t because they aren’t gifted.

Vitamin A: Why You Need It and How to Get It

    Geelong's Gym is perfect for us…

    “Our team has been using Geelong’s Gym in pre-season training, especially as our training facilities were under renovations, and we have been continuing to utilize the Geelong's Gym facility with the junior players. We have found it to be in the perfect position for us, with a very welcoming environment where our players are able to train without being disturbed. It has proven to be a good alternative to our training facilities, somewhere fresh where we don’t feel like we’re at work. Geelong’s Gym is perfect for us because it has all the facilities we need, with an excellent amount of space, where we’re treated as regular members of the public.”
