The young girl in the playground running, jumping, giving every form of physical activity a go, was me Melissa Gunn - founder of Gunn Health & Fitness, now a Mother of two beautiful, healthy children, who have inspired me to create a safe, fun, practical and family-friendly environment for Mums to be able to work out and challenge themselves but don't have to worry about having baby sitter to do so. 

Becoming a personal trainer at the age of 18 was a second nature decision. I wanted to inspire others to achieve their personal goals and pursue their fitness dreams. However, I was still developing my philosophy towards health and fitness during this period. As a young girl, I experienced personal struggles with food and my body image. The competitive nature of the industry means I circulated through fads. After putting myself through a roller coaster of fitness and weight loss regimes and strict eating plans, I began to educate myself about what it means to be truly healthy.

My holistic approach to health and fitness is part of the Gunn Health & Fitness core values, 'Active Healthy Living'. This complete approach is the reason why I established Gunn Health & Fitness. Through my own experience with health and over ten years of experience in the fitness industry, I created an approach and philosophy that provides my clients with the necessary tools to achieve their fitness and weight loss goals. My sustainable approach inspires a balanced lifestyle that encourages an active body, a healthy mind and a happy life.  


'Active Healthy Living', are our core values that drive Gunn Health & Fitness. Our close-knit team of trainers, strongly believe that health is not achieved through unrealistic goal setting, weight-loss fads or strict diets. This is a fad-free zone! Sustainable health and fitness, we believe is obtained through a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Being physically active, nourishing the body and establishing a healthy balance through life, are the three tools we encourage our clients to establish within their daily lives. We are constantly inspiring our Gunn team to make healthier choices, push physical barriers and smash through personal goals. Our team is ready to motivate you towards an ‘Active Healthy Life’. Are you ready to join our community?


At Gunn Health & Fitness, we dont believe in dieting , our mission is to help you find a new and positive relationship with food and your body, while you workout with us. 


Intuitive eating is about moving on from obsessing and worrying about what to eat, and just enjoying life and food while being healthy at the same time. 


Everyone's bodies are different, so our team works with you to create the perfect day on a plate to compliment your life and family. We believe there is no “one size fits all” solution to a active healthy life.
