Best value gym I've experienced
I've been to many normal gyms over the years and struggled with no support or help with different exercises. EFM is perfect for me as you have all the support of a coach with you and they take you through a different session every time you're in the club, plus it's all included in your membership. For me that is a massive bonus as I couldn't afford to pay for personal training on top of a membership at previous gyms. I really appreciate the support and welcoming environment the coaches create amongst all the members.
EFM SAHMRI is dedicated to helping people achieve their health and fitness goals
I was initially hesitant to join a gym, associating it with anti-social testosterone-fuelled blockheads and fit show-offs of which I would only compare as an embarrassment. However, I finally had enough of my dismal state of strength and fitness and that’s when I decided to join Coach Simon at the EFM Health Club SAHMRI (North Terrace). I was pleasantly surprised; not only was I gaining a cost-effective, committed and approachable personal trainer, but the social atmosphere Simon fosters is one of encouragement and laughter with normal people o...f all ages and fitness. Despite the strong banter and complaints, Simon always knows what you are capable of before you know yourself and has consequently helped many people to achieve their goals. Personally, I have come to love weights and cardio and in the 3 months I’ve been there (equating to more than 80 hours of gym time) I have lost 7.0kg of total body fat and gained 2.8kg of muscle. I would highly recommend Simon and EFM SAHMRI for anyone seeking to improve their overall fitness and health in a fun, non-judgemental and non-competitive environment.
Personlised service at affordable price
Love my time with EFM. Have been a member now for several years. Personlised service offering a daily program and modified to suit my needs as i have an injury. Always a coach onsite do guide me through each session, set my machines and set some goals along the way. Have tried many other fitness programs which dont deliver my needs but EFM continues to deliver my results. I highly recommend giving them a go, yes maybe a few $$$ more than the big commercial gyms but you have the daily programs and coach there the entire way.

A place to keep coming back to.
I've been going to Ringwood EFM for about 3 yrs now and would find it hard to go back to a regular gym. The best part for me is the relaxed, friendly feel of the place and the helpful staff who know me well and what I need to work on.
I hadn't really been comfortable in gyms before the EFM gym but attended reluctantly due to health issues.
EFM Health Clubs Glenelg - love the culture and friendships you make
I have been a member of EFM Glenelg for over 10 years. Love the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Everyone is supportive and encouraging. Simon is genuinely interested in all of this members. He knows your own personal goals, and will help you to achieve them. Plus the social events are amazing - especially monthly drinks with all the members! Thanks to Simon and his team.
Joined EFM health club based on website advertising personal training, support etc. Seemed good initially however I do not rate them highly for several reasons, for example very worn floor mats which look unhygienic. Fans but no air conditioning!! and very restrictive opening hours i.e. open only for two hours over the weekend (Saturday mornings) and closed between 10:00 and 3:30 pm week days. All a disincentive to attend.
One positive at EFM is the presence of a personal trainer at all times, (reflected in their fees), and all have been excellent, however personal attention depends upon numbers attending.
Have trained in many of the bigger gyms where you are only a number. The personal trainers at EFM provide ongoing support in a small & friendly environment. There are no lock in contracts & nothing is too much trouble for these energetic positive young trainers. I wouldn't be comfortable at any other gym.
Wouldn't train anywhere else.
Absolutely love all the support provided from the fitness coaches. They set machines for me, help to tailor the program each day and more importantly, they care about me and my goals. The staff are really friendly and so are the other members. Wouldn't train anywhere else now that's for sure.
You are not just a number
I started training 18 months ago at EFM Ringwood. The staff give a great service, know all members by name and know and track their progress. I have obtained good results. They do operate from Aquinas College gym which is small. It is the trainers that are excellent here and the team gives us many tips to improve.
No contracts, individual attention, small crowd of people who know and greet.
Restricted opening hours suit disciplined people
The only gym where I didn't feel like a number, trainers actually care!
EFM suits me as I travel interstate and overseas a lot for my work. I love the fact that I can pay on a month to month basis and am not locked into anything. I find the trainers really motivating, the people that go there friendly and I've achieved my goals with their support.
No lock in contract, great trainers
The price tag initially seems expensive but with the one on one training it's well worth it.
I work at Flinders Medical Centre and we have an EFM gym onsite at the hospital. I love the fact that I can take an hour for lunch and go over and use the equipment or go on my way to or from work. The people there are extremely supportive, friendly and helpful. They set up a program which differs each day and you can do the program or your own thing. There are no mirrors either which I love. I honestly cant sing their praises high enough. They are open varying times mon-fri and also saturdays.
at my worksite, personal trainer, great support
