Welcome to Defy Gravity Fitness – Newcastle’s freshest new boutique Fitness & Wellness studio for ladies of ALL ages, sizes & fitness abilities.

It’s FITNESS – but NOT as you know it!

Our beautiful boutique studio in the heart of Newcastle is much more than just a workout space, and our signature style is something really special! SCULPT, TONE and MOVE your body in ways that move you, with fun and effective hybrid classes designed to be low-impact but delivering maximum results.

Our Classes

Our fun, one-of-a-kind classes are unlike anything you have ever experienced before and will give you a very different TOTAL BODY training experience We like to think of our low/no impact classes as the “Anti-Aging Workout” and have been created by founder, Cherene TS with the unique needs of women firmly front of mind.

Bungee/Suspension Fitness – it’s not what you think…

The term “bungee” automatically conjures up visions of dare devils jumping off tall bridges and swinging upside down by your ankles. But rest assured, none of that is involved in a Bungee workout…daredevils, you’ll have to get your thrills elsewhere.
