What We think About Jetts

VALUE

Jetts is a great introductory gym for fitness beginners hoping to get started but is limited for intermediate and advanced gym-goers. They are quite limited with their equipment, facilities and amount of space.

Although Jetts are slowly improving and adding to their equipment and facilities over time, I found it incredibly frustrating having to wait for over 15 minutes just to use a squat rack. The spaces are also very congested, especially during peak times.

At the end of the day, it is a very affordable gym membership and you do get what you pay for in this industry. If you just want the basics and the freedom to work out when you want, Jetts is a great option.

COMMUNITY

In my experience, there isn’t a whole lot of a community feel at Jetts – most people come in, do their workout, and go home. It’s certainly not like your group fitness gyms such as F45 and Body Fit Training, where you get a great social environment between members and coaches.

The staff at Jetts are friendly, but if you’re not working out during the busy times you won’t see much of them as most clubs have limited staffed hours.

ENVIRONMENT

It’s a pretty relaxed environment at Jetts. People keep to themselves, are polite and are more than willing to share equipment. For the most part, there aren’t many ‘big’ lifters, with the majority of members being there for general health and fitness, rather than for advanced training.

We doubt most new gym members would feel intimidated at Jetts, but if you’re nervous, you can always stick to the quieter times when there is less commotion. You can also always get some personal training to begin with if you want to build your confidence in the space.

Why Should I Choose Jetts Fitness?

✓ If you want a flexible contract for a good price ($14.95 per week), with the ability to cancel at any time.

✓ If you want 24 hour access and the ability to visit several different clubs around Australia.

✓ If you want a non-intimidating environment with most other members pursuing general health and fitness at a beginner to intermediate level.

What Limitations does Jetts Have?

✗ The start up cost total of $168 is quite high, which may put off some new gym goers.

✗ The equipment is limited and the clubs are very small in space, meaning it gets very busy and congested during peak times of the day.

✗ If you want to partake in group fitness, it will cost you more per week. Jetts group fitness is also not very extensive and has limited options.

About Jetts Fitness

Jetts is an Australian gym chain started in 2007, and has since grown to over 180 locations across the country, 280 around the world and 200,000 members. They are a major player in the Australian gym industry and can be easily found in a location near you.

They are all about putting the ‘customer first’, offering an affordable gym membership with no lock-in contracts and 24/7 access – hence the motto ‘work out on your terms’. Jetts understand that joining the gym can be a daunting experience, and so they pride themselves on being a welcoming environment from the moment you walk in.

Each Jetts club is relatively small and has the basics you need to get started on your fitness journey.

Is Jetts Open 24 Hours?

Jetts is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You use a swipe key to access the club during non-staffed hours which you purchase when signing up.

Staffed hours vary from club to club and throughout the week, however, if you visit during the busy times of the day (e.g. 6 – 9am or 4 – 7pm), you should run into a staff member who will help you either sign up or answer questions.

Jetts Membership Cost

Jetts has two types of membership streams – pay as you go or pay upfront.

Pay as You Go

For $14.95 a week, the ‘Pay as You Go’ membership has you direct debited each fortnight, giving you the flexibility to cancel without paying any exit fees. 

Pay Upfront

This type of membership allows you to pay for 12 months upfront in order to save on your weekly rate. A 12-month upfront contract will cost you $649.00, which works out to be around $12.50 per week.

J-Series Contract

Jetts also offer J Series classes/group fitness for an additional fee of $19.95 per weekMore on the J Series later.

Jetts Sign Up Fees

Jetts sign up fees are pretty hefty – you’ll be required to pay an $89 sign up fee, as well as $79 for your access pass. This brings the total sign up cost to a total of $168.

There are ways to avoid the sign-up cost such as during promotions or signing up for a 12-month contract.

Jetts Promotions and Special Offers

Jetts do offer promotions several times a year – most often these involve waiving of sign up fees. Keep an eye out for these on their website.

Joining Jetts with a mate also reduces the cost per week from $14.95 to $12.95.

During my experience at Jetts, I also received a ‘bonus’ free month for every friend I got to join up, which helped me add a couple of months of membership for free.

Does Jetts Have Classes?

Jetts do offer classes, known as J-Series at a select number of clubs. J-Series is a 30-minute, high-intensity session combination of cardio and strength exercises ‘designed to burn fat and get fast results’.

J-Series is available to pre-existing Jetts members for an additional $19.95 per week or alternatively, you can sign up to a ‘duel’ general gym access + J-series membership for $34.95 per week.

Jetts Equipment & Facilities

Each club has a cardio area with ellipticals, rowing machines, bikes and treadmills, a machine area including leg press, assisted chin-ups, etc., as well as one to two squat racks, which also serve as a bench press.

They also have your typical amenities including open lockers, showers/toilets, water taps and a reception area.
