F45 training is a high energy, community & comradery focused, 45-minute blast. It’ll have your muscles burning, lungs blowing and adrenaline flowing. The exercises are simple and easy to learn, the class sizes are large and the training is strength-endurance and HIIT based.

Group Fitness: Limited

Crunch Fitness really has some character – it’s colourful, fun & exhilarating. They market themselves as being the original ‘no judgements’ gym, where they want people from all walks of life to feel comfortable and confident within their walls.

This is proved by their offer of every new member receiving a complimentary PT session. With their mid-tier membership and up, you’ll also have the ability to bring a friend to train with you. This makes Crunch a great option if you’re feeling a little nervous about getting started and would love some support, or even simply comradery as you get into your routine.

Many members have complained online that the customer service at Crunch can be sub-par and that they are confused about some of the charges they’re receiving. Our advice would be to have a thorough look through the contract before you sign to ensure you know what you’ll be billed.

Anytime Fitness is a global gym franchise that really lead the charge with having the gym open 24/7. Anytime has a free weight area, plenty of machines and cardio equipment as well as a functional training and free weight area.

The great thing about Anytime is that they have hundreds of locations across Australia and can be found in even remote locations – it won’t take you long to find one near you. They also have well-kept and clean facilities with good showers and parking.

You should consider joining Anytime if you want a good all-rounder at a reasonable price, without all the bells and whistles.

They do have some group classes, however, they are very limited and aren’t nearly as extensive as those found in more expensive gyms. Most Anytime gyms we have visited have been pretty small in size, which means it can get fairly crowded during peak times.

12RND Fitness is a boutique-style group fitness gym whose biggest x-factor is the ability for members to commence a class at any time. Each class involves 12 x 3-minute rounds with a big emphasis on boxing, cardio and basic strength. The class sizes are smaller than most other group fitness classes, with numbers around 15-20 people.

We recommend 12RND fitness for those who want a motivating environment with less distraction/interaction than other group fitness environments.

JETTS Fitness North Sydney

Price: $14.95* 

Sign Up Fee: $89.00 + $79.00 (for fob)

Contracts: Pay as you go OR 12-Month Upfront Lump Sum

24/7 Access: Yes

Group Fitness: Quite Limited

Jetts is an Australian gym chain with a growing number of locations across the world and is a good entry-level gym membership. The gyms certainly aren’t anytime special, however, they’re tidy, open 24 hours a day, and a great choice if you’re just starting out in fitness and don’t need any extras.

I personally had a membership at Jetts for around 12 months a few years ago and I’d say that the experience was reasonable for the low price. I also signed up for a 12-month contract, which helped me to skip the sign-up fee and this decreased my weekly rate, which is a good option to consider.

Jetts do offer a new group fitness class known as ‘J-series’, however, you’ll need to pay extra each week for it.
