The GRIPT Studio was opened in 2014 on the basis of providing solutions to the problems that we had identified in the industry. Then, it was Commercial Gyms’ low level of care towards their members, and Personal Trainers who treated their clients like a transaction. Now it is the saturation of the market with a low cost, low value franchise model, which prioritises the quantity of franchise fees collected, over the quality of coaching and training delivered.

We believe in delivering you with value by remaining committed to innovation towards your experience with us, in and outside of the studio. This includes taking a holistic and realistic approach to improving your health and quality of living by building long-term sustainable habits.

We also believe in delivering on our core values which the GRIPT culture has been built on:

– Creating a connection with our members

– Delivering high quality coaching

– Cultivating a training community

Although the training we deliver builds stronger bodies, we are ultimately in the business of building stronger, healthier and happier individuals.


We form a connection with you from your first visit where you come into contact with our Concierge and your Coach. We then take it another step through consultation by gaining an understanding of what motivated you to come to the studio, what experience you have, and most importantly, what you want to achieve and why that is important to you.

The coaching we deliver is based on getting to understand you individually, and providing you with the training that reflects you and your goal. We have an extensive range of coaches, with a broad range of experience, and we are confident we will find the right fit for you.

The studio environment has been designed specifically to remove ego, comparisons and competition, to allow you to focus on self improvement – because everyone is at a different stage in their health journey. By removing these elements from the studio, it has allowed a community to flourish where you can come and feel a part of more than just a gym.



In the beginning we were in the business of building stronger, fitter bodies, by developing your understanding of what is required to achieve results. Hard work, consistency and commitment – because no one is born with the body that they want.

As we have evolved, so too has our ethos where we now focus on building healthier, happier, and better lives that you can enjoy and gain greater levels of satisfaction and fulfilment from in and outside of the studio.


The team at GRIPT has been built over years by attracting experienced experts to the studio with one common goal – to improve people’s health and quality of living. Each team member is committed to their own personal and professional development to continue improving the experience their clients have with them.
