Hands down best gym in the Shire! Being a Rhino OG, I had a break but came back and wish I never left. The culture within the gym is positive and the trainers are super knowledgeable, always motivating and they care about you and your goals. The classes are always challenging yet enjoyable and suit all fitness levels.

Shout out to Ryan who has built such a strong and successful business and Reece for being the best PT who I have learnt so much from!!

Natasha

Hands down - best gym in the Shire! The most helpful and down to earth trainers definitely maximise the experience, could not recommend to start your fitness journey anywhere else!

I really enjoy Rhino Fitness!

The trainers are great and I love the atmosphere they create each and everyday!
I also am lucky enough to get pt sessions with Reece and through his attention to detail and knowledge on movement and weights I have not had a sore lower back or any injuries under his guidance as I have experienced in the past.

Loving rhino fitness fam and I would recommend joining or giving this gym a go!!
