CLUB LIME – Any good?

lenny 11 August 2008 24

Is anyone a member of this gym [Club Lime]? If so is it any good?

A new one has open at Tuggeranong and I am thinking of joining.

But I haven’t heard much about what they are like..

I’m not a morning person peterh so I love how Elite is open until 10pm. I get awesome sleep after a heavy workout late in the evening. It’s the only time i’ll go.

nothing like starting the day at 5.30 am for some training…

Harry who owns Velocity Internet has opened up this Club Lime thing.

He runs a very top notch, customer focussed ISP (Velocity Internet – my ISP), so if his business acumen extends to his other interests, I reckon as an owner he will take notice of people’s comments and act accordingly.

Vic,

Harry works very hard at ensuring that his businesses are all top notch. Technology Warehouse are one of my clients, the guys there are very professional. If club lime /pink are run to the same standards, they will be well placed to succeed.

I just couldn’t leave Elite now, they really look after me.

peterh – after several years at FF I thought I’d give Elite a go for the all the reasons you mentioned. Best move I ever made – better results, better staff, less money.

are you training at night, or on the earlybird plan? still can’t believe the low cost morning plan – at least half the annual fee of FF.

Well good for you Belray. Being that there is more than one FF in Canberra and dozens more around Australia, it is entirely possible you had a different experience from mine.

However I know two members of FF Civic who both complain they can’t get help on the floor but instead are directed to hire a personal trainer.

Maybe they didn’t like me? Entirely possible. Maybe they feel sorry for you? Also possible.

I’m guessing the latter..

just go to elite physique. my employer has a program whereby we can use FF, but in comparison to the rates at Elite, they were way over the top.

nice layout, helpful staff, individual programs. on townshend street in phillip, open early, closes late.

perfect for me, as I train before work.

I go to Club Lime Tuggers. Equipment isn’t bad, just wish they had a few more mirrors in which I could admire myself.

Belray – I base that comment on my years of training in gyms of all different sizes, from the small independents to the multi-nationals.

A simple test to prove the worth of a gym is to ask one of the staff to spot you when you’re doing benchpress. A good gym will always have somebody to help. Gyms like Finance First will make you pay $70 per hour for a personal trainer if, heaven forbid, you need a spot on the bench.

That’s just one of the reasons I left FF.

Maybe they don’t like you. I asked a trainer at FF to watch as I go through my two routines to ensure my form was still correct. I didn’t have my program developed by them, I am just a paying member. It took about an hour or so to go through everything with tips and comments at the end. It cost me nothing! Zip. Naddah.

It was a freeby because I am a member. $70.00 to spot you? Get real.

I’ve recently joined club Lime/Pink at Tuggeranong and I’d highly recommend it!

All the equipment is brand new, there’s plenty off it and well spaced out. The staff are really helpful too.

I’m pretty sure they have a thing going at the moment, where you can try the gym out for a day?!
It’s definitely worth a look.

Get results, avoid Finance First and other franchise gyms. Join an independent gym for less and where the guy behind the counter owns the place and actually wants to see you improve, not just take your cash.

What do you base this comment on? Which gyms don’t want you to improve and only take your cash and how many of them have you been a member of?

I’m a member of lime and I think it’s pretty good although can get quite crowded on weekday evenings. You can usually get on to machines though and the class timetable is convenient. Not sure that it’s anymore expensive than Fitness First etc?
