Disappointing

published

Asked for a quote on the phone for very specific services they offer (ballpark). They refused to provide even a rough idea of costs, instead proffering consultation which sounded more like a price gauging exercise. Disappointing that poor customer practices exist when I’m more than keen to support a local business.

Value for Money

Dangerous dump with old equipment

published

Equipment is so old and dilapidated, it poses a hazard to members. Staff are repeatedly advised about equipment failure but nothing is done. Staff are rude, no air conditioning. They advertise free tank top with renewal of membership but come up with all excuses not to give the tank top. I wouldn't want to wear the tank top anyway as a don't want to advertise such a crap hole. I was only going to use the tank top as a cleaning rag!! Will not be renewing membership again. Zap here i come...

Sooooo hot

published

I thought this gym would be a great option to try, being located close to my home. I was very wrong. This gym is stinking hot as it has no aircon! What kind of gym doesn't have aircon?? Apperently it is common for management to refuse to even discuss... absolute health and safety hazard. It doesn't take a genious to know that the hotter it is, the more you sweat and lose water and become dehydrated, no matter how much water you drink during a workout. Going to have to look at inner city gyms. Not happy!

Unprofessional Instructor

published

It's a pity that one of the instructors at this gym thinks that it is okay to chase after someone who is married (when they too are a married person)


This place is a money making scam

published

Staff are rude and money hungry, will make you fill out a contract and conveniently never give you a copy which isn't good practice and probably illegal, overcharge and $250+ to get out.


Great instructors and classes

Easy parking, my baby Neil loves the kids club. Oh oh and I love it too, nice to have some me time.

Great Atmosphere

So happy to have found this gym. Great staff, awesome instructors. 24/7 even has virtual classes. Value for money. Loved it first 30 days I received 2 appointments with a trainer. I also received a free nutritional assessment plus more.

July 2nd 2017 Update: Friendly staff

A great local gym. Value for money les Mills classes daily. Love the new showers and change room. As I am a shift worker love Iove the The les Mills virtual classes as I can work out when there is not an instructured class on.


Local, Friendly, Better than Zap,

published

Great to be in a club that is not full of posing. Members and Staff are always helpful.Great classes, easy parking, kids club available - love this place!!!

Zap is much better

published

I tried a free week here - yet they tried to get me to sign up before my free week had even begun! There's no air conditioning - even in the summer time! You're forced to work out in the heat, staff play dumb or make a joke of it. Safe to say i went straight down the road to zap.

Go elsewhere!

This gym doesn't even have aircon! Gets hot and stuffy in there. Have tried a couple of classes - decent instructors but sound system is terrible, always makes loud noises and needs upgrading. This gym doesn't like to spend money so don't waste yours here.


Over priced & greedy lock in contracts

published

Overpriced for very tired equipment, too many poor to average instructors. No compassion with hard financial times to get out of pushed on you heavy sales contracts.Totally money focused .. Recommend no lock in contract new equipment cleaner Zap Mega gym


Customised memberships is a bad idea

published

Rang up to ask for their membership prices as there is no info on their website, and was told they can't give me a price over the phone as fees are customised based on my plan and results I'm after. I explained I am very familiar with gyms, have been training for over 15 years, and would only need access to the weights area. Was given the same robot response 'I'm sorry but prices can only be given in person and are based on what results you're after'. I even reiterated that I don't want personal training or a plan, just access to weights. Poor form when they don't even have a basic price list to go off, can't help but feel like they are ripping off a lot of their customers.

Great place to workout.

Don't believe everything you read. This gym is great and deserves an excellent review.

I have been a member for over 7 years and I have to say I love it. Yes the equipment may be a little dated but the group classes are brilliant with friendly and supportive instrutors. I have tried out a couple of other gyms in Hobart and this one far out ways the rest because of their classes. I have had no problems with fees, well I haven't had the need to end my contract, I have deferred without any hassles before with an injury. The staff are friendly and know my name which is lovely. I have met some great friends being members and staff, give it a chance.
Fantastic & motivating high energy classes
If I had to say it would be the outdated equipment

Good classes

Terrible

published

Health and fitness is one of the worst gyms in Hobart.From the very start you can tell its a place for old ladies and not for the average, and definitlys not the serious trainer.There range of equipment is low the staff know nothing of customer service, and the place is an all round dive!So if your looking for a gym to train in i would highly recommend looking somewhere else because as every body in hobart knows they are a joke and not to be dealt with.Do yourself a favor Avoid health and fitness on pain of death!
The only part i liked is when i left!
Its like working out in nazi germany!


Bad

published

I agree it's not a place for the serious trainer,
If you like working out alone and know what your doing then you will cope, however their weights room is very outdated, however there are no try hards and an environment created for the average person.
Variety of classes close to work and home, relatable staff
No womens only section, poor outdated equipment, personal training is a joke, no follow up on programs, dark, lack of air-conditioning


Absolutely terrible!!!!

published

This gym is absolutely awful! The gym stinks of sweat constantly! it is too hot and the shocking management wont turn on air conditioning despite requests from members. The equipment is old and hasn't been replaced in years and years! The weights area is ancient and things are always out of order, most of the cardio equipment is date also. This gym really needs to step it up as there are many better gyms around hobart. There are no water bottles around to spray equipment, they dont provide towels if you forget one, the bathrooms are always dirty and the place is not a good gym to work out in.
child care
crappy equipment, unhygienic, bad music, unreliable equipment, no air con

Not quite sure, but if I remember correctly, I think you can transfer the remainder of your membership to someone else.
