8 weeks to great results – Starts 25th March 2019

“The individual attention and encouragement within a small group keeps me on track. The variety in the sessions is fun. I have achieved my personal goal when it felt like I never would. The encouragement within the group and from the trainers was key to that.” – Ali

Small Group Personal Training is an affordable alternative to one-on-one training.  You’ll still have the support and guidance of a qualified Trainer but the added benefit of being motivated by like-minded team mates.  Our next round of Small Group PT kicks off on 25th and 26th March with two programs on offer:

Crèche is now $2 for 3 hours*

Yep, we know we don’t always get things right but we do try to make changes when things don’t work out as we thought.

Our online creche booking system has been well received by our members but we acknowledge the two session set-up hasn’t worked for many of you. So we’re scrapping the sessions and now you only pay per child per visit, for up to 3 hours.

1 child = $2 for up to 3 hours*
2 children = $4 for up to 3 hours*
3 children = $6 for up to 3 hours*
4 children = $8 for up to 3 hours*

*$2 per child per hour applies with the purchase of a 10 visit pass for $20 – visit passes can be used for multiple children.  If you opt to pay-as-you-go, cost is $3 per child per visit.

You still need to purchase credits from our reception and you still need to book each child in via the online portal. But the good news is you don’t have to rush or worry about going over session times. In fact, if you feel like it why not stop and have one of our famous protein balls with a coffee or smoothie after your workout/class/netball game – what’s the rush!

Thanking all our tribe for your ongoing support and feedback.

Sweatiquette – The guide to good gym manners

Anyone who attends the gym regularly knows there are some unwritten rules that everyone should abide by – bring a sweat towel, wipe down equipment after use, don’t hog the machines…basically, use common sense and respect others.

However, some people at the gym will always falter in the manners department and some new gym goers just may not be aware of the do’s and don’ts of using a gym.  So we’ve put together a little etiquette guide so that everyone can work out in harmony.

Keeping it clean

There’s nothing worse than arriving at a machine only to find wet patches of someone else’s sweat.  A quick wipe with your towel (which you should always have with you) or even better, a spray and wipe with the disinfectant and paper towels readily available in the gym.

Re-rack your weights

Some of our gym goers have some impressive weights stacked onto the machines – which is admirable.  But not everyone can or should have to, put those heavy weight plates away because you’ve forgotten to or (gasp) couldn’t be bothered.

Waiting your turn

During peak times, chances are you might have to wait for others to finish their reps before using certain pieces of equipment.  But hovering close by someone as they are engrossed in their workout can be one of the most annoying things you can do.   On the other hand, it’s important not to use equipment as a rest station (especially if you’re on your phone).  If you’re not actively using the equipment, move off so someone else can.  If in doubt, there is nothing wrong with politely asking someone if they have many sets to go or even if you can alternate sets and rest breaks.  Being polite is the key!

Making friends

Most people are happy to make friendly small talk but just be aware that if someone is exhibiting clear signals that they don’t want to engage in conversation, for example if they’re listening to music or appear very focussed, it would be best to leave them alone, no matter how friendly your intentions.  We’re all time poor these days and some days gym users just need to get in, get their workout done and head out – it’s probably not personal if they aren’t keen to chat.

Not everyone likes your music

Music makes workout’s more bearable but what isn’t pleasant is having another gym user blasting their tunes out of a Bluetooth speaker for all to hear (and it’s usually turned up loud enough to drown out the in-house music system).  Headphones are the considerate way to enjoy your style of music without inflicting it on others.

Don’t be selfie-centred

If you can’t go to the gym without updating your Instagram or facebook account, make sure you don’t accidentally snap any unsuspecting people in the background.  Not everyone wants to be photographed while they’re working up a sweat.

Body odour is offensive

The gym is a sweaty place, there’s no avoiding it.  But we can all make it more bearable by simply wearing deodorant.
