What is rivvaPT all about?

The history of rivvaPT dates back to 1996 where it was first launched in the heart of Warrandyte, under the original name F.I.T (Fit In Time) by owner and head-trainer Chris Sharp.

Chris, one of the original fitness professionals in Melbourne, saw a gap in the market between Gyms and Personalised Training. He believed that Gyms, while generally being cheaper than 1:1 training had high drop out rates while personal training was expensive. With the need for maintaining a healthy life becoming more apparent in the community, Chris sort to develop a business that provided its members with a sustainable solution, particularly for those who were lacking in self-motivation or people who were new to a gym environment.

RivvaPT not only offers a training solution that is personalised but more importantly sustainable through the introduction of group personal training. Sessions at rivvaPT typically cost between $15-$30 per hour session and following an initial consultation, you will commence on a results focussed, holistic approach to promoting wellness, fitness and body composition through the rivvaPT core principles of Movement, Mindset, Nutrition and Education.

Chris is a passionate health coach and is focussed on helping his clients to not only look and feel better but also function more efficiently so they able to live their greatest life. However rivvaPT is not only a place to exercise but also a community environment where friendships are made and people feel comfortable, which empowers, motivates and inspires them to break down the barriers, which have typically prevented them from achieving their health and fitness goals.
