GLADIATOR Wrestling is aiming to move from Osborne Park into its new Embleton home ahead of the club’s next competition in August.

Bayswater Council unanimously supported the club’s planning application for a change of use to health studio and associated alterations at Lot 2, Tenancy 2, 7 Fonts Place, Embleton at the June 12 committee meeting.

The club has about 150 members, including 50 current state and national champions.

The studio will have a high performance gym area, meeting room, kitchen, toilet and wrestling mat on the ground floor and two offices, gym and circuit area on the mezzanine floor.

There will be personal training classes on weekdays from 8am to 4.30pm and other classes from 4.30pm to 8pm on weekdays and 8am to 1.30pm on Saturdays.

Coach and Wrestling Australia High Performance committee member Alan Landy said he was “overwhelmed” by the opportunity to deliver programs in the Bayswater area.

“So much of what we do at Gladiator is around whole of self development with people of all ages,” he said.

“Wrestling is just a vehicle for the growth of self esteem and confidence in their ability to achieve and be happy in life.

“Being able to bring our program to the world while using Embleton as our base, is absolutely fantastic.”

He expected the club to open in time for its next club competition on August 12.
