Half the battle is turning up.

 

ProSport established itself in 2006, running outdoor fitness camps, personal training sessions & on-site corporate fitness sessions. After successfully leading 18 trekkers across the Kokoda trail in 2008, ProSport created an adventure side to the business. Since then, we have led adventures around the world, including Everest BC, Kilimanjaro, Kokoda and world major marathons.

In 2014, we opened our ProSport Head Quarters in Swan Street, Richmond and in 2017 expanded to include two additional sites, with the Alfred Hospital & the Caulfield Hospital.

Our focus has always been on providing flexible, challenging and outcome-focused fitness programs, to meet individual client needs and goals. We're highly experienced in working with a wide range of clients and believe in a holistic approach to fitness. Our motivated trainers support clients at every step of the way, both mentally and physically.

FAQs

 

+ Am I locked in to a contract when I sign up for a membership?

Nope, you can end your direct debit at any time! We do appreciate two weeks' notice if you can though. We can also suspend payments when you take a holiday or if you need a break.

+ Will this gym be the right fit for me?

We hope so, but we'll let you decide. Come down and make the most of our different trial options.

  • Richmond $40 two week trial including unlimited group classes, 2 x altitude classes & unlimited recovery.
  • The Alfred One week free trial including 3 x group classes.

+ I have never done a marathon before but am keen to try! Can you help me?

Absolutely! The ProSport team are experienced in training first timers right through to seasoned athletes in marathons. We work with you on a long training program to build a solid base, before you even get to those long runs. We have watched many first timers run that finish line and it really is our proudest moment!

+ What is altitude training?

Traditionally, athletes have lived and trained at locations of high altitude for a period of time prior to competing. For those that aren't professional athletes this is very expensive and impractical. This is where ProSport come in. The air in our altitude chamber is delivered by a specialised hypoxic generator, meaning it contains less oxygen and simulates high altitude in the real world.

+ How could altitude training help me?

Training or even just being in a low oxygen environment like our altitude chamber, requires the body to produce a range of adaptive responses. These responses translate to improved performance when you are in a normal oxygen environment. ProSport’s altitude training helps improve your endurance, speed, power, weight loss and overall fitness.

+ How long or often would I need to train at altitude?

It really depends on what you are training for. Drop us an email and let us know what you're working towards and we can let you know what we think.

+ Can I get altitude sickness?

Altitude Sickness or Acute Mountaineering Sickness (AMS), is caused by the combined effects of low atmospheric pressure and insufficient oxygen. Whilst we adjust the oxygen levels in our chamber, we don't adjust the pressure, meaning it is practically impossible to get altitude sickness from our training. Also, if for some reason you do start to feel unwell during a class, good news is you can quickly step out of the chamber and take in a big breath of normal oxygen.
