Absolutely love this gym.This place have been a great constant in my life. There is nothing better than coming here a little bit grumpy and walking away at the end of class a completely different person. The mats continue to challenge your concept of who you are, what you're capable of and weaknesses to strengthen.This people in this place is like a second extension of my identity and has helped shaped me into the person I am now.

Fantastic place to train. There is enough equipment for me to do my own thing if i want to. The classes are catering for all levels and the coaches are real experts who know how to guide you. Workouts are always fun at this gym.

Fantastic place. Trainers are very friendly and helpful. If they know that you are a beginner they will guide you along which is very nice. The people there are also very very friendly. They will tone down their skills if they know you are a beginner and point out things to improve on. Had a really fun time training there!!!

I’ve tried a few MMA places in Melbourne and have trained interstate and this is by far the best gym I’ve been to. The trainers really know their stuff but also know how to teach. Everyone is really respectful of each other and no one seems to be trying to take anyone’s head off. I’ve been to gyms where all your sparring partner wants to do is knock you out. Not here. The facilities are insane and really well kept. The only thing I’m disappointed in is that I didn’t start training here earlier.

I've now done Muay Thai, MMA, wrestling and a boxing class at Absolute. The instructors have all been down to earth, knowledgeable and super passionate about their arts. I couldn't recommend this gym more highly, they are absolutely awesome 🤓
