About Impact Fitness
Impact Fitness Somerville is family owned, has been operating since 2015 and is a fitness centre that is different to the rest. We have created a family friendly environment where everyone has similar goals. Exercising in large groups creates a great vibe where you can meet new people, have a laugh and more importantly have fun and enjoy exercising. Our classes are designed for all fitness levels so you can go at your own pace and build your fitness levels as you progress. You can come on your own and feel part of the Impact family very quickly as we will always introduce you to people and if you need a partner we can pair you up quite easily. You don’t need to book or place your name on a waiting list hoping you can get into a class. We have plenty of room and plenty of equipment. You just look at our timetable; pick the class you want to come to and turn up, we will do the rest.
We enjoy being part of the Community and creating an Impact Family. Impact Fitness Somerville provides sponsorship to individuals that play sport within the local community. We are also proud sponsors of the Pearcedale Baxter Intermediate Girls Football Club and have been since 2015. We are very big believers in providing back to the community through our fundraising efforts. We have successfully raised $1500 for a young local child suffering from leukaemia, $2200 was raised for “Its Ok to not be OK” campaign for depression and suicide awareness and $2500 for Cerebral Palsy research. We have also donated numerous $150 vouchers to local clubs, schools and charity groups to help out with their fundraising efforts.
Our Focus on Mental Health
Everyone knows that regular exercise is good for the body. But exercise is also one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts overall mood. And you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits.
No matter your age or fitness level, you can learn to use exercise as a powerful tool to feel better. At Impact we see exercise for the mind just as important than for the body. We work hard on creating the perfect environment that will help your mindset.
We are one a few gyms that are kid friendly. We have a kid’s room that is positioned in the middle of the gym that opens out onto the exercise floor. You can see your kids whilst you exercise. We also have a boxing ring that kids are welcome to play in, as well as our foyer that is also set up with a heater and a TV with Netflix. We have Wi-Fi so your kids are welcome to bring their I-Pads. We also have “Nana” our Golden Retriever gym dog that loves playing with kids. Only rules we have are no kids allowed on the floor whilst class is running, no kids allowed in the weights area and kids are only allowed to eat in the kids room and foyer.
Impact offers a casual fee of $15 per class if it suits you better to pay as you go. All you need to do is pick the class you want to do off the timetable, bring a towel and water and fill out a quick form on your first visit.
