Australia’s hottest group weight training studio, Set 30 Studio (S30), finally makes the move to the Gold Coast, with the opening of its Mermaid Beach studio, the seventh S30 across the country.

An experience like no other, S30 Studio is known for challenging the status quo and replaces tired, predictable and mundane classes with custom-built environments and work-outs by using the newest weight, tempo and time techniques to get the best results.

The nightclub-style fitness studio offers high BPM and good vibes during its 45-minute group weight sessions, including 30 sets across 18 stations that will guarantee to make you sweat and scream for more.

S30 General Manager and Co-Founder Luke Faulkner says it was the focus on community and culture that made the Gold Coast the obvious next step for the evolution of the franchise.

“No other part of Australia identifies more with health, fitness and community than the Gold Coast. Pairing S30 and this iconic location – and the wider state of Queensland – is the perfect fit and I can’t wait to see everyone getting involved,” said Faulkner.

S30 Mermaid Beach will be led by co-owner and former professional NRL football player Jordan Kahu as he will shake up the fitness scene at the Gold Coast.

“I’m very excited to see Bronco’s legend Jordan leading the studio from Mermaid Beach. His hard work is a testament to his leadership and I’ve seen him workout; he’ll be pushing his community to reach their absolute best at all sessions!”

“I’ve lived in Queensland for 16 years and on the Gold Coast for the majority of that time. I’ve built a life here, a family, and made countless friends. I really do call this place home, and I’m so excited to bring our community the incredible experience that is S30. It’s a completely new concept to the area and something that I know will instantly connect with the people of Mermaid Beach,” said Kahu.

“For me, exercise and fitness are absolutely integral to my mental health. The atmosphere that S30 cultivates is a place where people can come, push themselves to their physical limits, all while having a good time and making new friends. S30 is the perfect vibe for the Gold Coast – it is fun, it is loud, colourful and we even have our own signature studio scent. It is a sensory experience on all levels, and I am sure that the locals will love it!”

S30 Mermaid Beach will open on Saturday, October 29 and is located at 2438 Gold Coast Highway, Gold Coast.
