6 of the Most Kid-Friendly Gyms and Fitness Classes in Melbourne

  • Pregnancy
    Mums & Bubs

Pack a baby bag as well as your gym bag, cos these classes and facilities in Melbourne are super kid-friendly! BYO babies, though!

It can be hard doing downward dog at home with toddlers crawling underneath, or having to be careful where you do your cardio so you don't accidentally send a stray leg flying into a kid walking by (never mind, I've done it too).

Why not find a class where you not only get to work on your health but you get to bring your most precious family members with you - the very reason you are striving to be healthy in the first place!
