I joined Active8 when Maddison (who is now 7) was a baby. We would come along to the mums & bubs classes! After some time away, i signed back up in May 2023. I did the walk out of Winter Challenge late last year & made some amazing changes within myself.

My favourite class i the gym circuit on a friday morning, and i love lifting weights in the gym.


⭐️ CONGRATULATIONS to Lucy who has been selected into the SA Sport Secondary Schools state team for swimming to compete nationally at the Gold Coast over 5 days in July. Well done and we look forward hearing about your experiences as part of the state team!


It’s a love/hate thing, right?


It's May, Mothers Day month, so we are putting it out to all our mums 🥰🥰


Unfortunately, due to the same circumstances, our functional fitness studio is temporarily unavailable for use until further notice.

Our 24-hour gym is still 100% available to all members. Our classes are all still going ahead, however we have had to move the location of classes such as;

Indoor bootcamp
Body blast
Thump boxing

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time.


Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of my control, the KT HOOPS court will be temporarily unavailable until further notice.

I will continue to run the majority of my sessions at the Ice House until these issues are resolved. Please message me in regards to session times as some have changed. Due to court unvailability, Thursday night group hoops will be postponed. Stay tuned for updates.

Thank you to for allowing me to use the court during this time.

I'm extremely disappointed and appreciate the ongoing support from all my KT HOOPERS. Please message me directly if you have any questions.

Our little Active8 team hit the course today! What a fun challenge.

Young Owen is an absolute fitness machine. He smashed the 10km course in just over 1.5 hours.
The 3 older althetes completed in just over 3 hours. Granted, there were a few long lines at some obstacles, so wait times were a bit of a slow down. 😉😂

Women benefit more than men from exercise

Women who partake moderate to vigorous exercise can get the same health benefits as men doing the same exercise, but in only half the time.

While men undertaking physical activity such as brisk bike riding for about five hours a week gain maximal reduction of mortality risk, women reached the same mortality risk reduction at 2.5 hours.

Furthermore, if women continued moderate to vigorous physical activity for more than 2.5 hours a week, they continued to lower their risk until that reached the five-hour level.

The remarkable findings are in a new study by the Smidt Heart Institute in Los Angeles.

Investigators analysed data from 412,413 U.S. adults utilizing the National Health Interview Survey database. Participants between the time frame of 1997 to 2019—55% of whom were female—provided survey data on leisure-time physical activity.

Investigators examined gender-specific outcomes in relation to frequency, duration, intensity and type of physical activity.

“For all adults engaging in any regular physical activity, compared to being inactive, mortality risk was expectedly lower,” said Susan Cheng, MD, MPH, the Erika J. Glazer Chair in Women’s Cardiovascular Health and Population Science, director of the Institute for Research on Healthy Aging in the Department of Cardiology in the Smidt Heart Institute, and senior author of the study.

“Intriguingly, though, mortality risk was reduced by 24% in women and 15% in men.”

The study also established that when it came to muscle-strengthening activity, such as weightlifting or core body exercises, men reached their peak benefit from doing three sessions per week and women gained the same amount of benefit from about one session per week.

“Women have historically and statistically lagged behind men in engaging in meaningful exercise,” said Martha Gulati, MD, director of Preventive Cardiology in the Department of Cardiology in the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai, the Anita Dann Friedman Chair in Women's Cardiovascular Medicine and Research and co-lead author of the study.

“The beauty of this study is learning that women can get more out of each minute of moderate to vigorous activity than men do. It’s an incentivising notion that we hope women will take to heart.”

The study concluded that the findings could motivate efforts to close the “gender gap” by encouraging especially women to engage in any regular leisure-time physical activity.

"Our findings extend from a continually growing body of concordant evidence from physiology and clinical studies on s*xual dimorphism in exercise capacity and associated outcomes.

“Taken together, the results from the current study combined with those of prior investigations suggest that PA-related risk assessments and recommendations could benefit from s*x-specific considerations; in turn, s*x-specific guidance could serve to motivate increased PA engagement particularly among women who stand to gain substantial health benefits.

"Recognizing the limitations of a one- size-fits-all approach, increasing attention to s*x differences in PA-related risks and benefits could augment precision medicine efforts to improve health outcomes for all."

Active8 is teaming up with .farmers Australia!!

To inspire and encourage farmers and those living in rural communities to improve their health and wellbeing through physical activity.

Fat Farmers started in 2010 when Greg Hean, Ben Wundersitz, and Scott Hoyle (all farmers near Maitland on Yorke Peninsula, SA) started going to the new local gym. They were over 40 and joked about becoming "Fat Farmers" now they were no longer playing footy.
The name stuck as the Maitland group grew, and gradually, other communities got involved...

Check out the website or get in touch with us if you want to be part of our group. Starting soon!!


This Sunday, 10 am with .lou.82

Want to know more about L-Carnitine & Creatine?

Acetyl-L-carnitine, also known as ALC, is a naturally occurring amino acid that is stored in the muscles, with trace amounts in the liver and blood. It promotes the transportation of free fatty acids into the mitochondria (core of the cells), where this fat is burned off as energy.

ALC also assists in muscle recovery after strenuous exercise and promotes optimal heart and brain function. We recommend mixing ALC with our world-renowned formula, OxyShred. This will help increase how much you're consuming and take your focus, fat burning, and energy production to a whole new level!

CREA-8 is one of the most heavily researched supplements, perfect for anyone wanting to improve their strength, increase lean muscle mass and optimise recovery. Be empowered, reach your goals, and take your fitness to the next level with CREA-8! Creatine is known as the most effective and safe muscle building supplement worldwide. A number of comprehensive evidence-based studies suggest that it leads to increases in fat-free mass, anaerobic strength, and power


Hands up who loves 🤚🤚

Oxyshred Ultra Concentration comes in delicious flavours for all tastes and ticks all the boxes for those wanting to shred and reach their full potential!
