While we have always had a gym and swim school, we have continued to evolve to cater for changes in the market and to keep up to date with latest trends. We have added new spaces and made continual improvements over the years as our business has evolved.
Our swim school has tripled in size from 2013 to present and added a new infant’s pool and other facilities to create Hobart’s leading swim school.
With the growth of low cost- low service fitness clubs over the same period, we have shifted to a high service – high-value fitness model, with a focus on coaching, education, accountability, and importantly – results!
In 2015 we have added Optimum Health Solutions Tasmania which is a multi-disciplinary allied health clinic that is based at Oceana.
