    Can I access the classes and Teenfit sessions before I have my initial appointment with a Trainer? 

    Definitely, we want to get you training as soon as possible.  You will need to check it at reception as normal and if your class is in the gym (eg. RPM or teenfit) a staff member will let you in until such time as you get your access band.

    Why can’t Youth members have unlimited access?  

    This is purely for safety reasons.  Young, growing bodies should not be lifting heavy weights as this can cause injury and damage to bone growth plates.  This is why we restrict your access to when our gym is staffed by qualified trainers. At this age, young gym users need to be closely guided and monitored by Trainers who are educated in child/teen fitness prescription.

    How do I sign-up for a Youth Membership?

    Please phone 9724 0400 to arrange an appointment with a membership officer, or you can sign up online below. Please note you will still need to attend with a parent for your induction in to our gym.
