12RND FITNESS SOUTH MELBOURNE

Price: $59.00 per week

Sign Up Fee: No

24/7 Access: No

Group Fitness: Yes

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, which is great for people who want more flexibility with their training times. 

Each class involves 12 x 3-minute rounds with a big emphasis on boxing, cardio and basic strength. At least one of the 12 rounds has you spending time working 1 on 1 with a coach on your boxing technique.

The class sizes are smaller than most other group fitness classes, with numbers around 15-20 people. 12RND is a lot more intimate than other, larger group fitness classes.

For around $65 a week, it’s certainly on the more expensive side, however, if you’re invested and attend regularly, the health and social benefits are priceless. It’s a community that keeps you coming back for more.
