Whether you’re new to a particular exercise, new to Eltham, or new to exercise in general, it can be difficult to know which fitness centre could be right for you. You need to find one that will accommodate your needs and goals— physical and otherwise— and that offers the style of exercise you want to get into (or continue).
If you’re a swimmer, you’ll be looking for gyms with pools. If you’re into lifting weights and gaining strength, you might be looking for a personal trainer. If you’re a yogi, you’re probably looking for a yoga class or a yoga studio, or you may be looking into trying Pilates.
In addition to finding a fitness centre that offers the type of burn you and your body want to feel, you need to make sure the gym you select fits your lifestyle. If you want to get your Pilates class done and dusted early in the morning before work, you’ll need to make sure your Pilates studio offers the type of class you want at a time that fits in with your schedule. On the other hand, if you prefer to work out at the end of the work day or even later in the evening, a 24-hour fitness centre may be best for you.
Whatever the type of gym centre, fitness trainer, Pilates studio, or yoga class you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it right here in Eltham!
This blog explores 5 of the best fitness centres in Eltham, from laid-back yoga flows to intense workouts with a gym trainer. Whatever your style, there’s a fitness centre to suit your needs and goals in Eltham. To find out more about each of the gyms, check out their individual websites for further information.

KX Pilates has over 80 locations filled with industry-leading trainers throughout Australia, and together they run 60+ reformer Pilates workouts a week. Pretty impressive! They’re passionate about helping people build stronger versions of themselves through reformer Pilates, whether they’re an old hat or just getting started on their Pilates journey.
Located on Pryor Street in Eltham, KX Pilates is an easy stop on your way to or from work. They offer three Pilates class levels and varying levels of resistance on their reformer machines, so no matter which level you’re currently at, you can progress at your own pace.
No matter your current Pilates level— even if it’s your first time!— their 50-minute classes are always dynamic, but on your own terms. When they say nobody does Pilates like they do, they mean it! The trainers at KX Pilates aim to always be inspiring, but never intimidating.
In their beginner class, your KX Academy trainer will teach you the basics to get you moving at your own pace. These classes are designed to ease you in if you’re just starting out, or ease you back in if you’re returning to Pilates after a break. If you have an injury, they will modify the exercises to suit you so you’ll never be left out.
Intermediate classes are a step up from beginner, as they turn up the intensity and target more muscle groups with new techniques to add to your repertoire. Thanks to their reformer machine’s signature spring system, you can adjust the intensity to suit your circumstances and goals.
Ready to sweat? The advanced classes are calling your name! These classes will give you the ultimate workout by challenging your strength and building your stamina. If you’re looking to step up your Pilates game, this is the class for you!

Those looking for a more relaxed introduction to yoga or Pilates may enjoy the Classic Flow Yoga class, which runs for 60 minutes and isn’t heated.

Fusion Flow runs for 60 minutes at 30 degrees Celsius, and mixes vinyasa flow and body sculpting with weight training and a cardio component. The next heat level is the Power HIIT hot Pilates class at 34 degrees Celsius, which runs for 55 minutes. In this class, you’re in for some high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that aims to improve core strength and stability while toning the body and burning calories.
If you’re really missing the summer heat, try a Bikram yoga class on for size! These 90-minute classes are run at 40 degrees Celsius (though they are 60 minutes if you take 3 classes per week). Bikram yoga helps to build strength and stamina and is aimed at improving muscle tone and gaining energy.
