JustInTime moves into Wharf Club

By Jack Hayes

The picturesque Wharf Club fitness centre has handed over management to local stalwart, and long-time Southbank Local News (Docklands News’ sister publication) contributor, Justin Moran.

Mr Moran and his team at JustInTime Personal Training have secured a two-year contract to manage the building developed in 2017 to cater to the needs of the growing Yarra’s Edge community.

Nestled scenically on the banks of the Yarra, the Wharf Club boasts panoramic views of the river, providing an exercise experience like few other gyms.

Despite the beautiful scenery and fully equipped facilities, which include a 25m pool, steam room and fitness centre, Mr Moran said there were still many challenges in getting people out of their apartments.

“I’m really passionate about getting as many people active as possible. You don’t necessarily have to be spending time in the gym; you can come in and create a program with us to do at home or for rehab,” he said.

“Essentially we are trying to get more community engagement out of the gym, not just the Forge apartments here, but the rest of Docklands.”

With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, Mr Moran has always placed a significant emphasis on bringing communities together through social endeavours, big and small.

“If you look at the statistics, only 20 per cent of the population are technically considered ‘active’, so gyms aren’t always going to be the answer for people,” he said.

“That is why we have been looking at social initiatives, such as getting a team to do the Kokoda Challenge, Great Victorian Bike Ride or Around The Bay In A Day, as well as less intensive activities like walking groups, or lawn bowls and barbecue days.”

The Wharf Club is one of two facilities of its kind in Victoria where there is a capacity for paid building management.

With the only personal training company in Melbourne exclusively employing university qualified trainers, it seems the Wharf Club is in safe hands.

“As well as managing this facility, we also offer a mobile personal training service. We come to your apartment and train you in the comfort of your own gym,” he said.

JustInTime Personal Training services clients throughout the Southbank, Docklands and CBD areas.
