I've started doing a casual class at the local gym which is $20 a class. I also go swimming there which is $6 a go. I'm just thinking joining the place would probably be cheaper.
How much do you pay and does it include classes, swimming etc?

I pay $30 a fortnight which includes classes, gym, sauna, spa, steam room EVERYTHING. Mine is a little cheaper because we have 5 memberships all up. i think its usually $40 a fortnight

$16.95 per week. No swimming pool but all classes and facilities are included in that. No contracts at that gym and you can put your membership on hold if required.
I LOVE the place. It's full of friendly and welcoming people. The owners and instructors made the effort to know my name and say hello/goodbye every single time I go in there. I'm not 'in' with them, it's just how it is. As a bigger girl that was very important to me when I first started there. It helped me come back
I'll never go elsewhere.

Wow looks like it would be cheaper for me to join.

$30 a week. This includes all classes, a sauna and a creche.

$20 a week. Creche is an extra $5.50 per 90min session.

$22 per week, and creche is $3 per visit (although I haven't used it yet). Just gym and all classes, no pool or anything

$75-ish per month. Includes pool, gym, all classes (including Pilates and yoga) and they have a fantastic crèche (although it does cost $4.90/child for 2 hours)
Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:08 AM
$10 a week for swimming and all classes etc. Creche is $4.50 a session on top of that (1.5 hours per child)
Posted 29 January 2013 - 10:06 AM
$16/week. Female only gym, all classes included and personal trainers available at all times, personalised plans and regular weigh ins/measuring.
No pool or creche though.

DH and I just joined our local Lifestyle Fit gym. They had a special which was $399 (upfront payment) for a years unlimited membership - classes etc, 1 free personal training/assessment session of an hour. We paid upfront - it's more if you pay weekly thought even that's only $14 or something.
No pool but not worried about that
Posted 29 January 2013 - 10:25 AM
Definitely join! Waaaaay cheaper!
Posted 29 January 2013 - 10:28 AM
$60 per month for me & $20 each per month for my 2 boys to attend the crèche - unlimited visits but limited to 2 hours per visit - so $100 month. I go 6 times a week so it's definitely good value.
No swimming pool but all classes are included as is a monthly session with a PT to update your program.

Wow, looks like mine is quite expensive. I pay $25 a week for unlimited visits, classes, etc. No pool.
There was a cheaper 12 month membership option for $20 a week, but I thought the flexible, stop-anytime option would be better just in case I needed to cancel the membership for some reason.
I shopped around first and this price was about average (inner Melbourne suburb), and had the bonus of being female-only and close to my place.

I go to Jetts. Just the basics but I enjoy it. $25 a fortnight.

I was paying $29 per fortnight at the YMCA and that was unlimited everything - but they didn't have a pool. There was one nearby that was affiliated with it, but I never used it.
However, I also paid about $8.50 per session for childcare for my two children, and they went three or so times a week. So in the end I was paying nearly $40 a week when it came down to it and I gave up my membership last year because I needed to cut back on expenses.
I bought a treadmill by paying a third deposit and the rest in instalments, and that's just over $40 a fortnight. It means I can do it any time I want. Before I was restricted to going when I could use the creche (2 hours of each week day they were open), and what didn't conflict with other appointments.
This year I will have more time and I could probably rejoin, and definitely next year I'd have more time. But I have enough equipment at home that I really don't have any excuse for not exercising. I have a Wii (Fit/EA Sports/Zumba etc), a cross trainer, a treadmill and free weights as well as a proper weight bench set (left over from my stepson).
While I love the socialisation of the gym, and enjoy using lots of different equipment, and in particular enjoy the group classes, I can't justify the cost right now.

$8.95 a week, no classes but full use of all of the gym and 24 hour access.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 12:27 PM
$99 a month. Includes pool, gym, all classes. Creche is extra.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 12:38 PM
$15 a week which includes full gym use and classes, pool, 4 free crèche passes a month, breakfast and a one year magazine subscription. It's usually $30/week but I got a discount because I paid up front and joined with a friend.

I pay $30 a week for two small group PT sessions. I don't do 'gyms'! (Maximum of 10 in a group and each session goes for an hour. Currently there's only five (including me) in my Tuesday session.)

$52 per fortnight - on the exxy side but has indoor + outdoor pool, sauna, steam room, squash and tennis courts, fantastic range of classes including aqua aerobics, great equipment, friendly vibe and buzz. I go upwards of 4 times a week so it's worth every penny.
There is a Fernwood gym nearby which I checked out first, and was a lot cheaper ($25 per fortnight) but was very quiet, no pool and no buzz about the place. I love seeing other people exercising and working hard, inspires me to work harder too.

2$26.50 a fornight.
Includes gym,pool,sauna,classes and creach..
WHich i have 4 kids in the creach so Fantastic value for me!

Local small gym - $11.00 a week with free creche. No pool but I dont swim anyway! I do 6 or so classes a week so it is well worth it.
