The Fit Journey is a 3 step, face to face retention program to give our members the tools needed to achieve measurable results and maintain your health and fitness success for the long term!

The 3-steps include:

  1. F-ind Your Purpose
    Find your purpose is all about your understanding where you are at, and defining where you want to be. We achieve this through a series of standard pre-screens as well as our game changing body composition scanner. In one simple scan we’ll know your weight, body fat%, muscle composition, fitness age, visceral fat and plenty more. Armed with this 360 view of you and your goals, now your trainer can give you a program that best suits your needs. We finish step 1 by running you through your program and the equipment required.
  2. I-gnite Your Spark
    Now its time to Ignite your Spark! In your second appointment your trainer is not only going to do a thorough run through of your program but they are going to really put you through your paces. Focusing on intensity and corrective movement, this step is designed to show you what you are capable of and give you the tools to success over the next few weeks.
  3. T-rack & Refine
    In Step 3 we Track & Refine our program. We’ll get you back on the body composition scanner and cross reference your training with your results. We will then make adjustments to ensure we continue to achieve success and to make sure you aren’t getting too comfortable.

Now’s the time to make an impact on your life by getting on top of your FIT journey!

Speak to any of your reception or gym staff when you’re in next to find out how to get involved, or give us a call on 9392 2222.

Superhero Safety Week starts Monday 18th November!

Safety Week is upon us, and this year BlueFit Swimming are asking students to come dressed up as their favourite Superhero!

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. Within the lesson there will be a focus on water safety skills such as floating, survival sequences, treading water, survival strokes and basic rescue techniques.

We encourage all students to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. Infants are encouraged to wear a t-shirt, parents and caregivers are also encouraged to wear a shirt. This creates a real life scenario, if your child is in an accident they will be in clothes. We want to ensure your child is prepared and safe this summer.

Don’t be alarmed by the changes, these skills are simply to offer additional focus on water safety and education in a fun environment. In the end we want to provide the best possible water safety outcomes for your child. Safety week provides us with the opportunity to focus on skills which could ultimately save a child’s life.

We will also be giving out prizes for the best dressed students! We look forward to seeing our little superheros!

What is Safety Week?

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. During Safety Week students will learn various safety skills. We encourage all parents to bring clothes their child can swim in to enhance the quality of learning.

Why is Safety Week Important?

The Royal Life Saving annual drowning report sadly recorded 276 people lost their lives due to drowning in 2019. As one of Australia’s largest swim school providers, we feel BlueFit has the responsibility to our communities to deliver a service that not only emphasises the importance of learning to swim, but also the skills to be safe and aware in and around water.

Safety week provides us with the opportunity to include additional skills into the swimming program which could ultimately save a child’s life.

What do you need to bring?

All preschool and school age children need to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. All infants and parents or care givers need to both bring a t-shirt to wear during swimming lessons.

This is imperative as we simulate swimming in clothing and what swimming techniques could help save your child’s life.

For more information about the program contact enquiries@bluefitswimming.com.au or please give us a call on 9392 2222 or speak to one of our friendly staff at the centre.
