With it’s exposed brickwork and industrial, loft style design, FORTIS is the perfect space for your next photoshoot, filming project or event hosting. We endeavour to provide a versatile backdrop to suit your exact needs.

On the day, you’ll have full private usage of:

  • free parking,

  • on site toilets,

  • free weights, spin bikes, conditioning machines (Ski-Ergs, Rowers, Assault Bike, Sled), boxing equipment and our 2,500 sq ft floor space,

  • a seating area with mirrors and power points for make up and relaxation between set ups,

  • tea and coffee and, at an extra cost, a locally sourced breakfast and/or lunch,

  • assistance from a FORTIS team member where needed to get the most out of your time in the space,

  • fantastic natural light with the shutters open​, as well as dramatic, atmospheric lighting with the shutters closed,

  • black rubber matting flooring,

  • generous ceiling height. 

FORTIS was the perfect location to shoot the demonstration videos for our start up strength and conditioning app. We searched for an industrial, raw look that matched our app's aesthetics. The lighting at FORTIS gave our videos the perfect dramatic vibe that we were after.


Communication and booking of the space was simple and easy. The kit available to us was outstanding in quality and gave us so many options. This gym is definitely a hidden gem. We will certainly use FORTIS again.
