Why Us

Our team at Elite TSM Bulleen – Vida Fitness is composed of highly educated and experienced trainers whose passion for the industry is unmatched.


Because Your Excellence Deserves Our Excellence

At Elite, we’ve mastered the art of personalised fitness, setting a benchmark that’s nothing short of extraordinary. Whether you’re setting a personal milestone or gearing up for a special occasion, we are here to ensure your fitness journey is nothing less than stellar.

Our trainers bring to the table a rich heritage of athlete training experience, ready to channel their expertise to craft your success story. Speaking of success, we’re backed by hundreds of tales of transformation that stand as testament to our unmatched proficiency.

At our top-notch facility, every session is a step towards perfection, guided by the nuanced approach of 1:1 coaching. It’s not just training, it’s an Elite experience – meticulously crafted, exclusively for you. Because at Elite, we believe in turning your goals into exhilarating realities, fostering a journey of empowerment, excellence, and unparalleled success.

Vida Fitness was established in 2016 to help improve the health and fitness of the community and complement the skill set of athletes looking to gain that edge needed for success. Through our affiliates Vida Tennis, Vida Footy and Vida Mind, it became evident that athletes were not getting the required biomechanical coaching that was necessary for efficient movement, sparking the concept that became Vida Fitness.

In April 2019, Vida Fitness grew from our Boxing Studio and PT studio, to running all fitness areas at the Veneto Club Bulleen.

In January 2024, the Elite TSm & Vida Fitness partnership was formed.

“It’s time to raise the bar! Its time to be Elite.”
