Hear from our Members
“Dukes has everything I need for my workouts. Recently I've been training for a powerlifting meet and the huge number of racks, specialitybars and machines for accessories work make the prep much easier. Also love that it's 24/7 so I can a workout in whenever it suits me. Highly recommend."
“Training is my favourite part of the day. It's where I get to zone out and just focus on the set in front of me. I've trained at a lot of gyms over the years and Dukes has the best combination of equipment and open space. Plus I never have to wait around for equipment which is always a bonus."
“Dukes has enough equipment for me and my mates to all train together, which is one of my favourite things to do. There's always a great atmosphere whenever I go and the staff are super friendly. Also love that they've taken the time to fit the gym out with the equipment that I actually use.”
"Dukes Gym is a game-changer for me! The women's only section gives me the privacy and confidence I need to focus on my workouts. The personal training sessions are tailored to my needs and have taken my fitness journey to new heights. The gym's cleanliness is top-notch, and the staff is always welcoming and ready to assist. I'm so grateful to have found this gem!"
"Highly recommend Dukes Gym. The free weights area is spacious and well equipped. Heaps of racks and I never have to wait for equipment. All the staff are trainers which has been a huge help when it comes to programming and keeping me accountable. Its just a nice place to work out!"
"This one is a no brainer - if you live in Richmond join this gym. When you walk in you can just tell the staff there actually care. The gym itself is well equipped, the womens only section is a bonus and its always clean and cared for. Love training here and a huge thank you to the whole team at Dukes for making this place my home away from home."
"Been training at Dukes for ages and love the motivating and welcoming atmosphere. When I started I was reasonably new to the gym, and having the support of the guys has helped me heaps. I also love that it's never crowded so I don't have to wait around for equipment."
"Joined recently and decided to start with some personal training to help get me back into the swing of things. I'm really enjoying my sessions and learning a lot of techniques and cues that I would've just brushed over if I was coming in by myself. Would highly recommend starting with PT if you've been out of it for a while. Keep up the great work guys."
"Amazing gym! Great equipment and the facilities are also always very clean. Staff are very friendly and supportive as well which makes for an awesome atmosphere! Big shoutout to Katrina, she is an amazing trainer and extremely motivating in helping you achieve your fitness goals. Definitely recommended Dukes Abbotsford!"

Where are you located?
Is there any parking?
Richmond - Yes! There’s heaps of parking at Richmond. We are lucky enough to be located just off Bridge Rd. There are mainly small offices and some warehouses on the street which means before and after normal works hours there is generally always parking available.
Abbotsford - It’s a bit hit and miss 😅We’re lucky enough to be located on Victoria St, but unfortunately parking isn’t always the greatest. If you are driving down, we suggest parking on Duke St or Grosvenor St. If you are parking on Victoria St just be careful of the parking restrictions in place.
Do you accept Fitness Passport?
Yes! We are proud to be partnered with Fitness Passport and accept fitness passport memberships at our gym. To get it set up you just need to bring your fitness passport ID with you and pay a $30 set up fee. You will be provided with a 24/7 access fob and all you need to do is badge on at the front door each visit.
Are there any restrictions on access?
No. All membres get access to the gym 24/7. This means you can come in and use the facilities during unstaffed hours, on weekends and during public holidays.
How busy do you get?
Not very. One of the perks of being part of a local gym is we never get as busy as the commercial chain gyms. Peak hours are 5-7pm, but even then you won’t find yourself waiting around for equipment or space because we have plenty of both 😁
What hours will staff be available?
We are staffed Monday to Friday, 11am - 7pm. We are unstaffed on weekends and public holidays.
Can I bring someone with me outside of staffed hours?
No. While we love our members spreading the word about our gyms, non-members can only come in during staffed hours (Monday to Friday - 11am to 7pm).
How do I book a tour?
Do you have lockers and change room facilities?
Yes, we have individual shower/toilet facilities and well as keyed lockers which are free of charge.
I need some help with my training or nutrition - where should I go?
Well you came to the right place! All our team are experienced lifters and will be happy to answer any questions you have. We also have a ton of information, frameworks, calculators and programs on our Free Resources page.
