YMCA Hawthorn GYM Floor Plan FINAL Positioned PZone Update Gym closed

Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre (HALC) is excited to revolutionise your exercise experience. The upcoming improvement of facilities, including Alpha Fit’s state-of-the-art functional training equipment, is set to personalise your gym experience – providing high performance training, for high performance living.

Through YMCA’s partnership with leading Australian fitness equipment provider Alpha Fit, this latest innovation and new functionality will allow members to customise their workout to suit their individual needs and performance requirements.

In order for the new equipment to be installed, a section of the Health Club will be closed as outlined below. This will be in effect from Tuesday 12 March to Sunday 17 March inclusive. The closure is necessary to relocate our existing equipment, put down specialised PLAE gym flooring, and install the new equipment.

During the closure (Tuesday 12th – Sunday 17th March) no AdrenalineHIT, Strength45 or Kettlebell classes will be running at HALC.
If you would like to continue training in these particular classes, your Membership has reciprocal access for our other Boroondara Centres - You can check out their group fitness timetables here:

HALC Manager, Michael Williams, said that the changes have been designed with the member’s experience in mind.

At Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre we have an extremely passionate and loyal membership base who prioritise their health. The equipment selected, combined with the redesigned health club space, will ensure that members can maximise their results in minimum time, to suit their busy schedules.

These changes will also ensure that we can continue to be innovative in our programming and responsive to the changing needs of our members and the industry.

The refurbished space will also house seven new lifting platforms, provide HALC members with unmatched strength and functional training facilities that are versatile and will be the creation of exciting and unique workouts for all levels and abilities.

Boroondara Leisure and Aquatic Facilities, owned by the City of Boroondara and proudly managed by YMCA Victoria, have invested in these upgrades as part of their shared commitment to providing world class fitness infrastructure to the community.

Members of all the Boroondara Leisure and Aquatic Facilities have reciprocal rights at HALC, providing access to the upgraded equipment and classes.
