THE HISTORY ANT FITNESS
ANT Fitness was established by Andrew Neville in April 2005 to provide a Fitness and Personal Training Service to the people of Portland and surrounding communities.
ANT Fitness began by offering Personal Training and exercise classes out of the Masonic Hall in Portland. As the business grew, ANT Fitness was able to offer the community a fitness studio offering access to Cardio and Weight Equipment.
In 2011, ANT Fitness moved into the central business district of Portland, into the Father Granall Centre at 9 Wolgan Street, opposite the Crystal Theatre.
ANT Fitness continued to expand its services further into the local communities by offering a weekly Gentle Exercise Class at Wallerawang CWA Hall, as well as Kids Fitness Classes three times a week including a one session held in Wallerawang.
In early 2020, when the Covid-19 Pandemic spread across the globe, ANT Fitness was forced to close its studio doors under a government shutdown of non-essential services. This prompted the business to offer a high quality on-line fitness training platform to be able to continually meet the needs of its clients. This included the offering of on-line personal training; Fitness classes being offered LIVE and pre-recorded via Zoom; as well as short FREE workouts via social media channels and YouTube. The fitness platform was complete with the offering of on-line training programs, as well as weekly podcasts, blogs, short motivational videos and an e-newsletter.
ANT Fitness employs 4 Casual Team Members.
