Close to work is certainly convenient. I wouldn’t go CISAC, as the manager of the facility is an arse (see last year’s furore over the mums being kicked out for breastfeeding in the women’s only gym).

Well I would rather like that while I’m working out. I thinking it’s refreshing.

Checked out the new Bodyworks in Gungahlin last night. Unfortunately for Gungahlin and surrounds, it’s crappy. Very small, hardly any weights machine and those low quality – like all the gyms in that chain, as I said before their class schedule is basic, it ws hot inside, and (the kicker) $39pf – $1014pa to save you the maths.
As a comparison, CISAC basic is $64pm or $768pa.
But as I can get into the new Fitness First for $32pf ($832pa) I think I’ll be checking them out some more – close to work so cuts the travel out to Belconnen.

free parking and locker hire it’s worth it to be a member

The free locker hire is so if all your stuff gets stolen, they don’t have to take any responsibility.

Blamemonkey, it’s not an anorexic catch-phrase, it’s a party girls’ and you forgot the second line…
“Eatin’s cheatin’.
Drinkin’s thinkin’!”

I’m a member of CISAC and don’t have any issues with it. The best thing for me is the pool – I love to do laps, and with free parking and locker hire it’s worth it to be a member. I also use the creche there (well, my kids do), which is only $4 a session. They also allowed me to suspend my membership while pregnant. I guess I don’t have issues with the parking because I usually go during the day. The biggest negative is the cost.

Hey sammy I wonder if it was the same gym in woden I suffered a similar experience, then had trouble with management and hence have never returned to a gym!
Put me right off gyms altogether! 🙁

Avoid gyms. Try stopping eating shit and excercising more.

Fernwood Tuggers is excellent. I’ve never had a problem and I have not seen any bitchiness.

In fact I’ve had a wonderful experience. Off to the Gym now. 🙂

Or to swap it around, if it’s not secure or lit, why would people use it?

Fair point.

I’m quite happy tussling with my ancient Bullworker at home, jogging, and exercising my right elbow (and throat muscles) in the pub.

dez, I’d recommend picking a gym close to where you either live or work as otherwise you’ll never make the time to go 🙂

Having said that, Alive in Narrabundah are fantastic. There is always heaps of parking, they have lots of machines, and they do breakfast weekday mornings. I haven’t done any classes but I do know that there are plenty on. Customer service is great and Cathy and Rod are fantastic.

It’s also on the cheaper side (not as cheap as the unis though). I pay $24 a fortnight.

Having had my favorite gym closed really sucked, so I have put up with some others for the last year, but recently went out and got my own second hand gear and haven’t looked back. Nothing better than being able to use my own gym whenever I want. Have even got some cd’s mixed up for circuits to keep the energy up.

Yeah – chicken or egg Sammy?
They have a parking problem around the building but an empty back lot. If I were the management, think I’d be asking why? But that’s just not the way people who manage that place work. I’ve really got to ask what is going on that such a woeful mob secured the rights to such a wonderful facility that ACT taxpayers paid for. What performance criteria are in place?

a parking nightmare due to lack of lighting and security in the large but unused rear carpark

If the carpark is unused, why would they secure and light it?

Park your car in one of the many carparks along LBG and run around it. A common run is the ‘bridge to bridge’ circuit – absolutely free gym membership at the outdoors gym.

For resistance training, throw in pressups and situps.
