Underground nightclub gym S30 Studio is responsible for some of the most toned biceps and quads pumping their way around Perth.
A culmination of three of Perth’s best trainers—Luke Faulkner, Ret Hartley and Oscar Nilsson—S30 is a strength-based gym offering smaller sessions ensuring you’ll get plenty of attention so you’re maximising your workouts.
Split into three blocks, each class focusses on weight, tempo and time, and each day is an opportunity to work out a new body part. Mondays are all about the chest, back and core, on Tuesdays it’s a hybrid full body workout, Wednesday is leg day, Thursday’s target every single body part, Friday’s will get your arms, shoulders and core pumped for the weekend and on Saturday it’s a full body sweat fest.
To keep you motivated, each class is curated to the sickest beats, colourful lighting and the studio even has its own patented scent—and we can assure you it’s not sweat. Plus, they’ve released their own street-cool apparel line, which we’re sure you’ll see people rocking all over town.
And to top everything off, S30 offers a weekly pay-as-you-go membership with no lock-in contracts, which is pretty much unheard of at gyms these days. There are also class passes on offer if you want to try out a few sessions to see if it’s for you.
S30's latest class—Drip Drip 2.0—is worth checking out if you like putting your muscles to the test (read: through hell). The extremely high-intensity workout combines aqua bags and battle ropes into a 36-minute workout that's never before been seen in Perth.
“We are not a boxing gym but boxing for fitness fires up the arms, chest, back, shoulders, core and legs—it’s a full body work out guaranteed to make you sweat,” says S30 Co-Founder Luke Faulkner. “It’s always been a goal of ours to stay ahead of fitness trends hence our introduction of aqua bags. There’s a tonne of advantages to them such as creating a more realistic feel as well as allowing to hit harder with a reduced risk of injury.”
If it's good enough for Kendall Jenner, David Beckham and Sylvester Stallone, it's good enough for us.
