Businesses in Docklands - March 2016

31 Mar 2016

At Goodlife Docklands it’s all about creating a great atmosphere to work out in.

Opening in Docklands last month, the new 24-hour health club offers local residents and workers a “five-star facility”, according to general manager Danny Hickin.

‘We’ve created a great vibe and a really nice gym for people to come and work out in,” Mr Hickin said.

Located at the base of the Medibank building at 720 Bourke St (entrance on the Etihad Stadium concourse), the health club is perfectly situated for local corporate workers.
“We’ve found such a great location here in Docklands,” Mr Hickin said. “It’s really all about accessibility.”
“Given where we are located, you can head into work and make working out part of your day, whether it’s before work, on your lunch break, or after work,” Mr Hickin said.
And with hairdryers, straighteners and ironing stations in the change rooms it’s easy to head off to work after your work out at Goodlife Docklands.
“It’s close by for a lot of Docklands workers, you can’t get much better than downstairs or across the road,” Mr Hickin said.
The club offers a range of equipment and classes and is open 24/7 making it easy to schedule time to work out.
With 12 personal trainers on board and a crew of trained staff, Mr Hickin said he was confident Goodlife Docklands could cater to any client’s need or goals.
“We want to provide people with a service that we felt was lacking in the area,” Mr Hickin said.
The club is staffed during weekdays but is not staffed at night or on weekends.
Mr Hickin said a strong safety procedure, including 24/7 surveillance, meant members using the health club during un-staffed hours were always looked out for.
“We’ve got duress alarms around the club which allow you to speak to someone live at any hour and we’ve got pendants you can wear so if you’re injured you can press those and someone’s alerted right away,” Mr Hickin explained. “The security process is very strong.”
According to Mr Hickin, since opening on March 7, Goodlife Docklands has received plenty of interest from the local community and was looking forward to welcoming more new faces to the club.
You can find Goodlife Docklands at Medibank Place, 720 Bourke St (entrance located opposite Gate 2 Etihad Stadium).
