We may be biased, but we think that Byron Bay is one of the best places on earth for health and fitness.
As well as a predominate beach and surf culture, Byron Bay boasts an impressive array of eating experiences and organic foodies. The town’s spirit is healthy and vibrant, and alongside this is an energetic crew of fitness enthusiasts.
When they’re not running the lighthouse track, they’re working out at one of these places in the Arts & Industrial Estate.
The Industrial Estate is located 5 minutes from the town center, and very conveniently, is where the Bare Blends Smoothie Bar is also located. So make sure you drop in to get a post-workout recovery smoothie afterward your workout.
Here are our recommended best fitness destinations in Byron Bay.
Bende is new a boutique pilates, barre, yoga and flow studio. It focuses on slow flow, strength, cardio and meditation. Their new studio is beautifully decorated, and doing a class is a must if you aren’t into fast-paced training. You can find our ambassador Alexz running the classes there.
F45 gyms are fast gaining recognition across Australia for their functional training approach. 45 minutes of weights, cardio exercises, and a whole lot of sweat is what you’re in for. The classes are hard work, but a lot of fun. We’re stoked that F45 has opened in Byron - the friendly staff and good vibes make this place a must visit.
Our local yoga studio has all of your yoga needs covered. From Vinyasa to Yin, Creature runs 21 classes each week, so there’s an abundance of classes to choose from. It’s also run by our lovely energetic ambassadors Tahl and Bess.
The Academy has all of your martial arts needs covered. From jiu jitsu, to muay thai, to boxing, you can train at this impressive academy no matter what your skill level is.
See Change is a boutique fitness studio run by our friend Lisa Parkes. It offers one-on-one training and small group classes that are tailored to your needs.
Ninja Play Academy
Ninja Play offers an obstacle training course similar to those in Ninja Warrior, Spartan and Tough Mudder. An excellent place to learn strength and stamina, and to have heaps of fun while you’re at it.
Bikram Yoga is done in a room that’s heated to 38 degrees. A complete mind and body workout, it’s very different to your standard yoga. There’s room for both beginners and experienced yogis.
