Defy Gravity is Newcastle’s hottest new Recreational Fitness Studio for women, offering our exclusive Bungee and Aerial Suspension classes, training & workshops.

We think about fitness a little differently (ie A LOT differently) to regular gyms, pilates, barre and functional fitness studios – and our mission is to inspire others to do the same. To discover NEW ways to move that are FUN, UNIQUE & ADDICTIVE!

What Our Students Say…

I just completed my first class and had heaps of fun. Actually accomplished moves I never thought possible for a 60 yr old. Movement feels very different but in a good way 😀” ~ Louise W

“I have just completed 3 weeks of classes to test this new craze of exercise. Well OMG this is totally awesome. The moves you learn and accomplish are amazingly mind blowing! What you can do attached to a bungee cord!!! Yes you do work up a sweat! If you don’t then your not enjoying it enough. This was sooo much fun, I really enjoyed my class and class mates. Cherene is a fantastic instructor & I highly recommend her business. 😃 I give a rating 5 stars out of 5!!!” ~ Carra K
