Unit VIII is a family owned and operated gym . Adam and Gen are husband and wife and are both ex military and emergency service workers but have been involved in the fitness industry from a young age.
Having both been involved in the health and fitness industry since leaving school they have always kept fit and mobile engaging in different sports and activities over the years by either coaching or competing.
They have both been employed in high stress jobs and use exercise and training as not only a physical necessity for their occupation but also for mental support throughout.
Unit VIII started as a small group of friends training together in a garage gym. The garage gym soon got too small and then a passion for health and fitness, some serious determination and a lot of hard work lead to the creation of Unit VIII starting in December 2019 in Dunsborough. .

* please note, all group classes must be booked in with us first, this is to ensure safety and high coaching standards*
Above EVERYTHING your safety and longevity is the most important thing. We will not sacrifice your health for numbers. Our coaches are there to help you move safely and efficiently through your sessions.
You will never be 'pushed' or made to do anything you don't want to do, are not ready for or are not doing with good form.
We take our role as coaches very seriously, you only ever get one body and we believe you must look after and respect it. So please do not be offended if we slow you down a little and establish the basics with you. Whilst throwing barbells around can be cool, what's even cooler is having a body that functions properly!
