Servicing the Mornington Peninsula


Hi and welcome to the Fitness for Life website.

I would like to introduce myself Craig Lindsay, director and founder of fitness for life.

I began training over 30 years ago at a little gym in Syndal called Health Works, I was just an overweight kid wanting to drop those chubby rolls. I was working as an apprentice motor mechanic and not long out of school.

I trained there for a few years then ventured to a place in Forest Hills, John Drivers at the time a reasonable gym, then Ringwood Super Gym , then Fitness Factory in Nunawading with Richard Hargraves, there is where I also first started working in the health and fitness industry, that was in 1989. I completed my VicFit as it was back then and worked for Richard.

For the following years I ventured in and out of working in the industry always training of some kind. Whilst also working as a mechanic. Whilst I still had a passion for all training I also water skied most weekends, loving the thrill of bare footing. Also riding motor bikes on the dirt, road, and track over the years.

Getting restless and no longer enjoying turning spanners I made a decision to follow my dream of opening a small gym or personal training studio, this was in 2000 when I resigned from my mechanics job to embark on what has been the most rewarding decision of my working life.

Although at times difficult (particularly in the early years) starting a business from scratch. I opened a studio in Wantirna in Jan 2001, was there for three years and relocation in Jan 2004, to a large facility that Fitness for Life operated from for 7 years then relocated for 4 years with the aim to move the business to the Mornington Peninsula.

I am pleased and excited to announce that  Fitness for life is open in Mt Martha servicing Mornington, Mt Martha, Dromana, Safety Beach and the surrounding suburbs.

At this point I would like to thank you for spending some time on our website please browse further and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
