Group Fitness: Yes

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.

Memberships cost varies depending on how long you sign up for. It’s also important make sure you are clear on the terms of the contract, take home a copy of it yourself for future reference as some members have had trouble when cancelling. We’d also advise to stick to non-peak times as it can get busy here!

12RND FITNESS RICHMOND

Sign Up Fee: $0.00

No Lock in Contracts: Available

24/7 Access: No

Group Fitness: Yes, in abundance

12RND Richmond 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.

Price: $17.00 + per week

Sign Up Fee: $99.00

24/7 Access: No

Group Fitness: Yes

There are two Fitness First locations in Richmond – one near the corner of Church & Swan Street and one at Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre. 

Fitness First facilities are always super clean, the staff are very professional, and the gym floor area is always bigger and better than average.

You’ll have access to a wide range of fitness classes including zumba, yoga, pilates, HIIT, boxing, circuit, spin – the list really does go on. There’s also an extensive array of equipment and areas, including free weights, machines, cardio and independent training spaces, meaning you won’t be waiting for your favourite machine for long.

There are various membership levels that give you access to more and more clubs as you go up in price. Fitness First offers a 1-day free pass, redeemable before you consider committing to their membership contracts of 3, 12 or 18 months.

The price of Fitness First can really start to add up for some people, however, committing to longer contracts can help bring this down.

We have also seen a few issues with members struggling to cancel their memberships and have had bad experiences with customer service. Oftentimes, this is because they haven’t read their contract correctly.

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.

Zap Fitness is an Australian-owned gym chain with a growing and extensive number of locations across the country.

is your typical commercial gym facility, with a general array of machines, cardio equipment and some, but limited functional training spaces such as squat racks and platforms. You’ll also have access to the facility 24/7, which is a big plus.

Each Zap Fitness facility is very tightly packed and has limited equipment. The cheap price tag will also mean it gets pretty busy during the peak periods of the day.
