"When we change ourselves, the world around us changes too." - Michael Paps


Our mission is to get you feeling better - in mind, in body, in soul.

Starting his fitness journey at 130kgs, Michael Paps built Ultim8 Fitness (later shortened to 'U8F') from the ground up with a view to teach his community that living a happier, healthier and enriched life was not only possible but easier than you would expect. Now, 12 years later (and 50kgs lighter), Michael & his team have helped over 2,000 people achieve the impossible. We invite you to be our next success story.

"U8F is more than just a gym. It is a family and lifestyle. I have always struggled with the commitment to exercise but with a supportive and fun environment that Paps and the team have established, there is no better way to start the day or weekend!
