We have MOVED! Now located at 14/54 Clyde St Ham Nth.



We are Newcastle's ONLY Hammer Strength Official Training Facility.

With one of Australia's largest ranges of Hammer Strength equipment, you have plenty to play with. This is by far the equipment of choice for competitive bodybuilders, fitness, figure and sports models worldwide.

Pin loaded equipment? We've got it, isometrical pieces allowing you a greater workout and the ability to target each side of the body.

Life Fitness Cardio, Concept 2 rowers, keiser spin bikes - your cardio is covered.

We were the first gym in Newcastle to offer dead lifting platforms, competition Powerlifting and Olympic lifting bars with calibrated plates, and yes, you can use lifting chalk. The first gym with 50kg plates. The first gym with an indoor astro turf sprint track and full Strength & Conditioning box.

Our dumbbells run from 1kg to 100kg. Kettlebell rack from 8kg to 80kg. 

Since opening, we've added in specialised pieces rarely seen in commercial gyms. 

A leg session at Strength Republic could look like this: warm up life fitness cardio, sprint drills on the indoor sprint track, squats, safety bar squats, bent bar squats, plate loaded v-squat, leg press, plate loaded leg extension, pin loaded single leg leg extension, plate loaded hamstring curls, pin loaded hamstring curls, standing calf raise, seated calf raise, plate loaded squat lunge, finish with reverse hyper, GHD and then  walking lunges on the sprint track. Yep, no "giveway" signs here.

Our atmosphere is second to none.


We could tell you how much we love our gym, or you could read the testimonials below. Or check out our reviews on facebook and google.



As a powerlifter (and a bit of bodybuilder) this is legit one of the best gyms I have ever been to! The equipment there was superb (really good powerlifting bars, and plates), and in addition the machines and weights seem really new / well maintained, but at the same time gives off an old school vibe, which I definitely enjoyed. It also has a really good environment, it has a corner for every form of fitness (powerlifting, weightlifting, bodybuilding, crossfit, cardio, and etc). I definitely would recommend this gym to anybody!


Hands down the best gym in Newcastle with a great training atmosphere! A judgement free gym where everyone is welcomed no matter their experience level.


The most amazing, friendly, welcoming gym in Newcastle!!!! Wouldn't go anywhere else! The owners & trainers are so knowledgeable and are always willing to help and support you with your goals! The classes that are run throughout the week is another way to increase your fitness, build muscle. I have met some amazing people at Strength and look forward to getting my arse their each day!


Absolutely love this Facility. Plenty of parking, 24 hour access, just swipe your card and go and train. The best Hammer Strength machines, massive free weight section, great atmosphere, it has it all.
