Darwin’s Best Gyms to Feel the Burn!!

We’re near the end of January 2023 and looking forward to all the camping and swimming (under waterfalls!) adventures that the dry season of 2023 has to offer. To get to our healthiest and most joyful body it takes some mindful exercise and at Norther we want to help you out! Here are five cool gyms in Darwin for working out to keep your mind, body and soul on track (and it doesn’t hurt working out in a state-of-the-art gym to get those gains!). 

Fernwood Fitness

Exclusive for women! Need I say more? As women sometimes you want just some X chromosomes around you when working out!  And Fernwood Fitness is the place where women can feel free to be unabashedly women (are Taylor Swift or Mariah Carey part of your workout playlist?!)! Here it is all about your form and getting your sweat on. This gym was built for balance, from strength, weight training, cardio equipment, HIIT OR group fitness classes. In addition, the experienced personal trainers here are awesome!
PS: The amenities here are also super supportive. From childcare to hair products and free breakfasts, this is the place for women looking for some fantastic self-care.

Next Level Gym

Interested in a place to work out with a sense of community? This is the place to be. Their inclusive group sessions take place daily. The gym also has a comprehensive list of classes of varying difficulties to cater to a diverse demographic. From FitMums to Box Fit sessions and straining to full-body aerobic conditioning circuits, there’s a workout for every mood and body type at Next Level Gym. One of the best parts about the gym is they have a Creche on site and can watch the kiddos while you work out.

CrossFit Darwin

We’ve all got that friend who loves CrossFit and will pontificate constantly (for me, it’s my brother who actually goes here) about the benefits. Well, they’re not wrong and studies show that community involvement helps motivate you instead of feeling like (Hans?) solo… That’s the secret sauce here: community. CrossFit Darwin believes in teamwork and making new muscles hurt every day. Each time you come in for a session it’s about making sure you build a better you. So take a peek at the schedule and start sweating.
