Dear Joy readers
Ok time to get serious. Have we all made New Years resolutions and now have to follow through. Well as per usual on my list is getting into to shape and trying to lose the christmas kilos. So thought we would help out with a few of the gyms that we use.
Genesis gym at Jindalee pretty much has everything you will need. Fitness classes, a 25m heated swimming pool and of course state of the art cardio equipment and free weight. They have staff who can personalise a program for you and are very friendly and fabulous at showing you how all the equipment works, especially if you are like me and it had been a while and most of the equipment looked like it belonged on a space shuttle. On top of all of this there are dozens of fitness classes for you to attend and a fit kids program as well.
They also gave personal trainers to give you that little bit of extra motivation when it is needed. They have a kids club for children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age which runs
Monday to Friday Mornings: 8.15am – 12.00pm noon
Monday, Tuesday & Thursday evenings: 4.45pm – 7.15pm Saturday Morning: 7.30am – 12pm.
Genesis also has fabulous bathroom facilities, so if you want to workout before work no problem. Take all your things with you and you can shower afterwards and there are plenty of lockers available to store your things in.
If you are interested you are able to train for free for 5 days to see if it will suit your needs. Now Genesis is not only at Jindalee they have gyms all over Brisbane so just click this link to find your closest centre.
Next up we have Jett’s Gym, this is one my husband uses. He particularly likes the fact that it is a 24hour gym, so he can call in whenever the mood strikes, (which is not that often at the moment I have to say). Now Jett’s has just about everything you need in a gym if you are not interested in any fitness classes. They offer free weights training and they have a range of cardio machines, as well as personal trainers. There are bathroom facilities so you can call in before or after work. The big plus with Jetts is the availability of being open 24 hours, so no excuses to train.

Fitness first are another big franchise with gyms all over Australia. My husband Ian, has been a member here for the past few years and loves them as they carry a lot of equipment and are located in the cities, and run a lot of different classes to suit everyone . He travels a fair bit, so if he’s in an Australian city he knows that he’ll be able to use the fitness first gym there, which is great. He did signed up and became a member so pays a fixed rate every month but you can get a prepaid membership. They actually have quite a variety of ways to pay so click here to view some of their options
If you are looking for a ladies only gym then you should check out Curves who have gyms all over the place so have a look at their gym locator to find your closest one, they have loads in and around Brisbane. Another ladies only gym is called Fernwood, they again have locations all over and have loads of classes to suit all
A great boutique gym we have here in Indooroopilly is Workout gym , which has just been newly extended as they are so popular. They offer all the usual classes as well as child care, all in a very personal way. They have an easy membership where you pay a set fee every couple of weeks which you can cancel at any time.
If you are an early riser they are open from 5.25am and close at 8pm Mon-Thurs, Fri 5.25am-7pm and closing at 5pm on the weekends whilst opening a little later.
For those that just want a basic 24hr gym then Snap Fitness is for you. These guys have excellent equipment and locations all over the place and you can get in whenever suits you, do your thing and get out again .
So we expect to see you all looking super fit and trim 😉
