North Adelaide locals find their new home of fitness as SpeedFit EMS arrives in South Australia


North Adelaide locals find their new home of fitness as Australia’s largest EMS (electro muscle stimulation) personal training franchise company, SpeedFit, opens its first location in North Adelaide, SA,bringing the total number of open studios in the network to 30.



SpeedFit began in Perth in 2013, started by Matej Varhalik, who was inspired by his own use of EMS for injury rehabilitation. SpeedFit studios have become a fitness staple in Australia’s west and their popularity has continued to grow since their eastern expansion in 2017. Despite lockdowns across the country and interstate border closures, SpeedFit has opened 13 new studios with seven of those outside of WA.


The new studio is not only the first SpeedFit studio for South Australia but also the first  EMS (electro muscle stimulation) workout available to Adelaidians. The new studio will be owned and operated by local Adelaide businesswoman and health enthusiast, Munira Hassan. Munira has spent the last 15 years working in the health space as a fitness instructor in Saudi Arabia and a Pilates instructor in London before moving to Australia in 2017 with her husband and two children.


Munira Hassan, Owner of SpeedFit, North Adelaide, SA said:


“I first got in touch with Matej Varhalik, SpeedFit, co-founder, in 2018, he was very transparent and honest when discussing the business partnership, he told me all of the ups and downs and he never hid anything. I had spoken to other EMS companies but Matej was very different, he knows we are both responsible for the success of the studio and we are working together.”
