Buddy, it’s time to get back on the resolution bandwagon. That’s right, it’s time to get back into #fitspo mode and turn that happy tummy into rock hard abs…. Or cry trying.
While Chapel Street is the home of the best bites, cafes & restaurants, it’s also the best place to get your rig into shape! Here are the top 10 places for fitness on Chapel Street!
For the mind, body & health approach to #fitspo Kaya Health Club in Prahran is exactly what you’re looking for. For a flat weekly membership fee, you’ll have access to over 300 different classes – especially helpful if it’s cardio day, but you’re actually feeling like yoga would hit the spot instead. Especially come savasana time, do you feel me?
Look for the red eagle on the door – and you’re there! Energie4 is tucked at the end of Cecil Street in Prahran, but once you find it … you’ll never want to leave. The Energie4 crew have trained athletes to Olympic podiums and Hugh Jackman into Wolverine shape, so what the hell are you waiting for?
KX Pilates Prahran is a powerhouse when it comes to Pilates. Expect fast paced & high intensity classes that are no longer than 50 minutes. You can be in and out in no time, plus the reformer elements is super fun! Like they say, work smarter, not harder.
Forget cookie cutter, Burn Lab is anything but same same. Led by celebrity health & fitness expert Donna Aston, here you’ll find one on one or small group training tailored to exactly what your body needs. You’re not going to have the same goals, or body as the person standing next to you – heck, you probably don’t even have the same coffee order, so there’s no point training to the same program.
When Mum said to eat your greens, she failed to mention that you could drink them too! Green Street Juice has a magical way of turning organic greens into delicious, and the world may truly stop spinning if the Mover + Shaker juice cleanse is ever taken away.
Green cup have more ‘superfood’ options than a tropical island, and they’re way more convenient. A little birdie (O.K. Instagram) also told us that Lauren Phillips is all about the classic chocolate shake, so we’re all about it too.
Nutrition bar is the ultimate goodie stop, with the added bonus that everything is hella good for you! Acai bowls, salads, juices & clean treats! The Chapel Street location in Windsor is perfectly placed to catch you in between retail stops, so you’ll never go hangry. Plus, they have coco-Whip. Need we say more?
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Those wise words from my year 12 math teacher also comes in handy when you’re trying to cut the junk. Stop by Prahran Health Foods and stock up on natural goodies for your office snack drawer, your home snack cupboard, your handbag and your car. After all, hunger often attacks when you’re least aware. Be prepared.
As a Chapel Street resident of a number of years, I’ve noticed a few changes in our community. But I’ve also observed a few things that are iconically Chapel Street that only residents can truly relate to. When you know, you know.
The Prahran Square car park is now open for business! 500 undercover parks and electric car charging stations right in the heart of the Chapel Street Precinct. Plus, it’s only $1 for 2 hours!

Aimed to raise essential funds for the Sacred Heart Mission’s Woman’s House, which supports women experiencing homelessness, the op shop campaign will be held earlier this year kicking off in August with a Launch Party at the Prahran op shop and finishing in September at its newest shop in Prahran.
Secondary cuts of meat are those working muscles which are more flavoursome and textural, but need a little more time and care to polish off the edges, but by doing so you are richly rewarded.
If you’ve never taken a trip to Greville Street, you’re seriously missing out. This petite Prahran street leads you gently from the hustle of Chapel Street, into a warm village of boutique makers, retailers & artists.
I braved my first Pole Dancing class at Pole Divas Prahran and I was really (dare I say it?) feeling myself. Prepared to feel uncomfortable, thankfully, my awesome older sister was eager (you can see why she’s the oldest) to join me for our first experience with the pole.
