WELCOME TO BLUEFIT
A brief introduction to BlueFit
We would like to take the opportunity to say hello and express how excited we are of the opportunity to manage Windy Hill Fitness Centre on behalf of the Essendon Football Club.
BlueFit is a family company with our national Site Support office based just down the road from the Windy Hill facility. Many of our team, including myself are locals to the area. At BlueFit, our Mission is ‘Inspiring Community Activity’, and we are dedicated to providing the much needed resources to improve the lifestyle, health and wellbeing of the communities in which we live, work and operate.
This is an exciting time for BlueFit, but we also know it comes with some uncertainty for you. We are very cognisant of this and are committed to working with both EFC and Belgravia Leisure to ensure a smooth transition.
Whilst building the team to take this Facility forward, this will take some time to work through. BlueFit are looking forward to having regular open, honest and transparent communication throughout the transition period. Regular Zoom calls will be scheduled over the coming weeks to ensure you have ample opportunity to ask questions on the process and on our plans for the facility in partnership with EFC.
BlueFit Organisational Structure – Windy Hill Fitness Centre
It’s likely our organisational structure is slightly different, and every BlueFit role will be opening for application soon. While this step may create some angst, history does tell us that many existing employees will be re-employed.
For those of you that are interested in working with BlueFit, please apply for any of the available positions below. If you do not see your existing role, please select “other” and provide details of your existing role as well as any skills or experience you have that may be relevant.
Our aim will be to ensure that we move through the recruitment process as quickly as possible to provide you with some certainty, whilst still ensuring we have the right people in the right roles.
BlueFit pays employees in accordance with the Fitness Industry Award and we are committed to a transparent, fair and equitable approach to employee relations, pay and conditions.
Whilst we are contracted to take over management of the Facility as at the 1st of November, the ongoing impacts of COVID and Victorian State Government restriction means that this date may change. We’ll keep you updated on this through the transition process.
We are looking forward to meeting you all and building a great Facility that continues to Inspire Community Activity.

Swimming lessons will changed to BlueFit Swimming. Having previously transitioned Belgravia’s program to ours, we have a clear understanding of which levels students will transfer. The main difference is that the BlueFit Swimming program has smaller class sizes in many levels and our program is focussed on skill development and water confidence.
