What Is virtus?

Virtus Performance, for all intensive purposes, started in a shed in Pearcedale back in 2011. In 2015, we moved into our current facility in Mornington, Victoria.

Virtus is a gym, but not in the way you might think. What we do transcends the current understanding of what a gym should provide.

We are reinventing what a “gym” should be and how we approach health and wellbeing.

It all begins with personal growth and development. We want to help you find, and grow well past your edges.

Our vision is to build a facility where a team of professionals can co-exist and communicate best practice between Health, Function and Performance. This is all to provide the best possible service and result for you. We also want to build a community around what we do the Virtus Family. We use the word ‘family’ because if we do our job right, we will cultivate a community/ tribe/ family of legendary humans which everybody is proud to be a part of.

‘Virtus’ is latin for Excellence. Our intention is to embody that word with everything we do. Excellence is not about being perfect. Excellence is about showing up and consistently doing the work. Excellence isn’t about standing on top of the mountain every day, it’s about the process and the journey that you take to reach the top.



Making the world a better place is one thing. Executing that audacious statement is another thing entirely.

Our mission is to deliver a remarkable coaching service to our community.

Our philosophy is simple: We want to connect with our members, know their names and understand their stories. We are here to help them achieve their goals, whilst having fun and celebrating every little win along the way.

We believe that we have a responsibility to look after every person that walks through our doors. We don’t take that responsibility lightly. As Uncle Ben says, “With great power comes great responsibility”. We are very fortunate that our Virtus Family members trust us to look after their health and wellbeing.

At Virtus, we believe that it is as much about ‘life‘ as it is about ‘training‘. We understand that what we do in the gym is only a small part of your day. We want our members to thrive in every aspect of their lives. This is why we look at the whole person, not just the sets and reps you do in your training session. Our focus on education and personal development goes hand in hand with physiological improvement.

Our team is committed to making a positive difference in our community. We are doing our best to make a dent in the universe.
