THE BRUNSGYM STORY
Bruns Gym is the longest running gym in the Byron Shire, it has been operating continuously from these premises for 47 years!
We are a family run business, and have owned the Brunswick gym since 2009. The Brunswick Gym was first opened in 1970 with the 2 eastern squash courts. A 1978 expansion saw the addition of 2 more squash courts, an indoor heated pool, sauna and spa. In 1982 a small gym was installed which has expanded over the years to include separate cardio and free weights rooms.
As the popularity of squash started to decline in the mid 80’s, volleyball competitions and casual matches quickly became a fixture at Bruns Gym in 1986 providing the ideal social sport for the local community.
The space our members now know as the weights room was formerly the office and has had various incarnations including a sports store that stocked lawn bowls clothing, swimwear, squash outfits and aerobic outfits and at one stage was even the only video shop in town!
In 1996 the office was moved to the right hand side at the top of the front steps, making for a more welcoming feature for new and existing members! Since 2012 we’ve been working hard to continually improve the member experience at Bruns Gym with renovations and upgrades implemented to ensure the best fitness facility is available for our local community in Bruns.
Recent additions have included a purpose built group fitness room, new infra-red sauna, converting the pool to a salt water and a full upgrade of the change rooms. We have many more exciting plans in the pipeline for 2017 and beyond!
Today the squash and volleyball competition are still going strong, along with swim school, 24 hour gym and over 26 fitness classes per week. At Bruns Gym we really do cater for every body and every age.
We are proud of our facility and would love to see you at Bruns Gym to help you achieve your fitness goals, make new friends and lead an active life as part of this great community we all call home!
