I was a member of this gym long before Club Group took over, when it was Southlands Gym in 1994. The wiring seemed to be dodgy back then. The light bulbs in the mens’ change rooms rarely worked and the hot water in the showers was always going cold. Perhaps a rewiring and upgrade should be done before the gym reopens.

Does anyone know which gym this was?

I would assume this would be Club Lime (above the commonwealth bank and the rest of the shops in that bit of Mawson), I don’t know of any other gyms at southlands
