Nice to Meet You!

What We're About (Our Values and Offerings)
GeekFit 24/7 is the brainchild of two passionate coaches who are fighting to be the change they want to see in the world. A highly experimental and unique project, GeekFit is pushing boundaries to offer services previously gatekept and paywalled within the industry.
At GeekFit, you can expect:
Absolutely zero pushy sales tactics.
We want our community to be full of people who are as passionate as we are, and we respect that everyone has different wants and needs. It’s important to us that you can walk into GeekFit and if it isn’t for you, you can walk away without pressure. Don’t be afraid to come in and have a look.
A completely guided experience.
We want our members to succeed, so every single member gets as much (or as little) personal training as they need included in their base membership. No limits or catches – we’re here, and we’re invested in you.
Capped memberships for no overcrowding.
By limiting memberships, we're actively preventing overcrowding and keeping our equipment in the best possible condition for your use. A quality member experience is more important to us than extra sales.
Community that feels like family.
Over the last few years, our little Geek Gang has grown into the most kind, supportive, welcoming community, and we couldn’t be prouder. You don’t need to be a social butterfly, but you’ll never feel out of place at GeekFit.
A truly premium service.
Unlimited guidance and education is great, but we also believe the little things are important - like our client adjustable fans, music and airflow, or our complimentary “dizzy treats” candy jar. We’re also pretty passionate about 3 ply toilet paper, haha.
Unique, personalized approaches to your health.
Our coaches will spend plenty of time creating the perfect plan with you, assessing your unique posture, mobility, and movement patterns to ensure you get the best results from your efforts. We take the guesswork out of training for you, and steer away from one-size-fits-all training approaches.
A gym where healthy doesn’t have to equal skinny.
We believe that healthy can mean happy, strong, well-slept, nourished, pain-free, confident and so much more. We’re here to help with health – whatever that looks like for you.
Local owners who care.
Geekfit is locally owned and operated, and when you support us, you’re not only supporting your local community, but you’re also helping us fight for a better fitness industry where people and health are put before profits.
Where We're From (Our Inspiration and Motivation)
We don’t like to dwell on the negative, so we’ll keep it short, but our passion and inspiration was originally fueled by our extreme disappointment in the fitness industry.
Working as trainers in the industry gave us a first-hand look into the unethical and profits-driven nature of major gyms, and how little they care about health or people. We were so disgusted by the industry that we vowed, through blood, sweat and tears, that we would fight to make this industry better. To show people they deserve better.
We sat down and designed Geekfit, creating an entirely new business model that everybody said was impossible. When we said we wanted to pay personal trainers a wage, and offer members free training, we were laughed out of the room. “Impossible”, they said. But we brought it to life. And it’s working.
We built GeekFit from the ground up, for the people – for you. No help from the banks, no big names behind us – it’s just two humble trainers, our savings, our hard work and our passion to leave the world a little better than how we found it.
We’d love for you to help us make the fitness industry better for all Australians.
Where We're Going (Our Goals)
We believe in shooting for the stars, so we’ve set some big goals that we’d like to achieve one day – But even if we just reach the moon, we’ll be thrilled (you could say we’d be “over the moon”).
Here are just a few of our goals for the future:
The future of GeekFit
We hope that we have the opportunity to grow and expand over time, eventually creating beautiful, inspiring health centres that provide a range of additional services as part of membership. On top of free coaching, our dream is to offer free services for both physical and mental health, like physiotherapy, counselling, libraries, community rooms and more. It’s a big dream, and it might seem impossible, but so did GeekFit once upon a time.
The future of all gyms
We pride ourselves on being a cut above the rest, but we don’t want to be the exception forever. We want to help other small business owners to grow in the industry and share our experience with those looking to offer a more quality-focused business model like we do. The more, the merrier!
The future of the fitness industry
We vow to fight for change in the industry, shifting focus away from profits, and push it towards looking after people – how it should be. The only way we can force the big corporations to change and offer more services is to be competitive enough to threaten their profits. So we’ll fight to grow and make this industry better for you.
The future of fitness careers
The average career span of a personal trainer is 6 months, which we think is appalling. We refuse to participate in unethical rental trainer models, and we vow to pay all Geekfit trainers with real money, not exposure like the big gyms. We will grow our voice and push for all trainers to learn that they deserve more from gyms.
The future of health
We believe that personal trainers could be an incredible tool within the health system, but current qualification requirements are so low that the industry is overflowing with substandard trainers with dangerous coaching practices. We promise to fight for higher education for trainers and stricter qualification requirements in the industry.
The future of the planet
We believe in looking after the planet, so we promise to consistently seek out new ways to reduce our environmental impact as a business and as individuals.
