Viva Leisure celebrated the grand opening of its latest hiit republic fitness centre at Mitchell on Saturday. The latest facility is the biggest of its kind in the ACT.

In line with its mission to connect health and fitness with as many people as possible, Viva Leisure has transformed the former Project Fitness Group in Mitchell, which it acquired in August, into a boutique functional training studio under its highly successful hiit republic brand.
