Rehab & Injury Prevention

We are all about injury prevention but also have a huge focus on rehabilitation after surgery or an accident at work or otherwise. We have Lauren Nagorka as well as Mark Roberts (and colleagues) from Revolution Fitness.

We provide a wide variety of small and large rollers, resistance bands in many sizes, encumbered bikes, as well as elliptical and arc trainers for those weak backs, knees and hips.

Mobility & Stretching Space

Do you love to roll out and stretch before and after your workout? We have the space and equipment here for you including a dedicated stretching cage with detailed instructions.

We have seen the increased awareness from our more mature members knowing the importance of mobility, stability and resistance training to retain their bone density.

Specialised Booty Building Equipment

It’s all about the booty right now! We have everything you need to build your glutes! See below for photos and a complete rundown of our specialised booty building equipment!

Specialised Booty Building Equipment

Resistance bands aka “Booty Bands” – we have long and short sizes with different resistance levels.

Our members love them to activate muscles before their glute sesh and use them for banded hip thrusts, leg curls, squats hyper extensions, good mornings and leg press.

Essential to get that extra burn!

We have a Verve Hip Trust Free weights Machine that you can buckle up and add what weight required for resistance of your choice.

Smith Machine for squats, Romanian deadlifts, Smith Machine hip thrust.

Cybex Arc Trainer to add “booty” and cardio together.

Life Fitness Single Glute Kick-back resistance Machine.

Arc Trainer

The Cybex Arc Trainer is a stationary glute machine that works out your lower body. When using it, you stand upright on its footplates and balance yourself with the moving arm bars. This is a dynamic exercise machine with plenty of adjustable options

Series Glute

The Life Fitness Insignia Series Glute features a diverging hip and chest pad angle, which minimizes lower back stress and helps maintain proper alignment. The machine is designed to activate your glutes without putting the strain of your body weight on your knees and ankles. It trains glutes through a more isolated movement.

Bumper Plates

Wider in diameter then standard plates, you can comfortably get into position and the plates naturally serve as an elevated loading pin so you can add extra weight easily.

When performing deadlifts the extra elevation from the ground is great for people with limited hip flexion mobility or if they can’t get into the deadlift position without rounding their lower back.

Brands & Popular Equipment

Our most popular pieces of equipment include the Hammer Strength leg press and Life Fitness Smith Machine. Our Life Fitness Jungle Gym gives members plenty of cable options. The Synergy pin-loaded machines and Cybex cardio machines are set up to make sure you can take in our water views! We also have a huge range of dumbells – up to 60 kg’s.

"I've been a member at Riverside for the past few years & feel as though I am part of a family! The staff are not only incredibly helpful & friendly but respectful of any needs. I am currently using the infrared sauna for my torn ACL and have had great results. It aids in the circulation of blood flow and wound healing, helps reduce inflammation and much much more. Great on those cold winter mornings - to clear the mind with a workout or a sauna treatment. Highly recommended!"

"Cardio and weights with an amazing view of the Richmond River. We signed up for a casual visit with Riverside 24/7 fitness for our staycation in Ballina/Byron. My partner and I gym daily. 24/7 offered us all the equipment, weights we needed and more. Both the staff and members were very friendly and made us feel very welcome in their fitness family community. Thank you! We will be back again!"
