Gavin and the RBF story

After personal training for many years and spending lots of time in gyms in the area, I came to the conclusion that they are all run the same way and all share the same little problems — so I decided to create Rye Bay Fitness! A gym like no other around here.

Rye Bay Fitness is member orientated, inclusive and open to anyone at any time due to our unique 24/7 membership system. Additionally, we provide a large variety of equipment that is suited to many different styles of training. Our experienced personal trainers and staff are on-site every day and are happy to provide you with help and advice.

I am hugely passionate about this industry and I’m very proud to be able to share Rye Bay Fitness with everyone.

Exercise plays a crucial role in improving both our physical and general well-being. By staying active we gain a whole host of benefits which include a reduced risk of many health conditions, greater mental clarity, and a better quality of sleep. Physical activity is something we should all reap the benefits from.

Whether you’re a competitive strongman, a mum after the school run or somebody enjoying retirement, we hope that you feel a sense of belonging and social inclusion whilst at RBF. Here you can build new friendships and enjoy the company of others through exercise.
