About us & ARTICLES
Being a big sports kid competing in high levels of Netball & Basket Ball, Andrea has always active. But then had a life changing moment in 1999 when due to illness and a year long recovery from a serious asthma attack, she had to get her health back.  So the following 2 years were dedicated to her health and fitness. She stripped down almost 30kg's, Training became a priority & started competing in Olympic length Triathlons. She then studied to become a Personal Trainer & decided to leave her Management job in the corporate world to branch out to buy her first Ladies Only Fitness Center in Seaford in 2005. Then came Not a Gym in 2011 when there seemed to be a gap in the market that wasn't catering well for those starting out and not enough classes with GOOD Coaching, especially those who are anxious, with limitations or special needs. So the past 6 years have been all about research & finding out what the people really want from a Fitness Centre .. and more importantly what they DON'T want. Andrea's specialties are Weight Loss Mentoring, Train the Trainer, Kids Fitness, Disability Training & Programming, Sporting Team Fitness Coaching, Functionality Training, Core Stability, Suspension Training, Boxing & teaching & Assessing for Fitness Certificates

Our story started in 2005 when we purchased Everything for Women in 2005, expanding to the adjoining building in 2008, then moving to Peninsula Blvd Seaford in 2011. Until now in Oct 2016 we expanded once again to our new premises at 62 Hartnet Dve Seaford... 
We call ourselves Not a Gym to try and separate us for the big centers that don't offer much supervision & support or don't accommodate well for beginners.

The programs and classes we run are not like the main stream 'gyms'. We provide better variety and flexibility to try and accommodate most fitness levels. We prefer to hold small Group or one-on-one sessions to ensure a high level of service is provided. 

Our Classes are also taken by the Personal Trainers, NOT Fitness Aerobics Instructors, so we can make educated adjustment to accommodate different abilities in most classes.
