Our Mission

Melbourne Strength Culture was created to provide an environment where individuals can train surrounded by knowledgeable coaches and like minded individuals. We have two beliefs that our gym is built upon:

1) Strength is the foundation for everything;

2) You are a direct product of the environment you place yourself in.

It is through these two defining principles that Melbourne Strength Culture was created. We aim to create a culture and environment surrounding strength training that allows an individual to get the best out of their training and life!

Our System

Our gym runs with a semi private 'open gym' system. This allows each individual the opportunity to take responsibility for their own training under the direction of our highly educated strength and conditioning coaches. Each individual begins their training at Melbourne Strength Culture with an assessment, which includes goal setting, current and recent training history, medical and injury history and a complete static and dynamic movement screen. This assessment allows our coaches to provide each individual with a program that is 100% individualised for them and their goals.
