A NEW gym in Joondalup is giving its members a full workout in 31 minutes.
Early last year, 26-year-old personal trainers Daniel Moynihan and Daniel Swingler decided they wanted to open a gym that was convenient for members and could help them get results they had not achieved at conventional gyms.
“We knew there must be a better and more convenient way for members than having to book in for group classes,” Mr Swingler said.
After researching more than 50 different fitness facilities across Australia, they found Core9 and developed a partnership with the founders of the Manly, NSW franchise.
They resigned from their jobs as a gym manager and navy clearance diver and by January 3, the first Core9 franchise in WA was opened at Winton Road in Joondalup.
“People go to the gym and often have difficulty getting the results they seek because they might not have someone to guide them with technique and exercise ideas and are often unsure of how to do an effective workout and as a result end up doing the same thing over and over again,” Mr Moynihan said.
“People are also time-poor, so even if they go to a facility that offers classes, they are continually late or miss the class.
“Core9 is a 31-minute workout designed to work around members so they can start within three-and-a-half minutes of arriving.”
Mr Swingler said the workout comprised nine stations including kickboxing, military exercises, gymnastics, cardio, strength, endurance and functional training.
“You have a personal trainer who takes you through the whole 31 minutes to guide, motivate and correct technique,” he said.
“There is also a continued variety because every day is a different workout.
“Our plan is to open five more Core9 facilities in Perth by the end of 2018 because we believe this unique concept is the perfect workout for all walks of life.”
The Joondalup gym is holding an open day on Saturday, February 11 from 7am to noon.
