People vary in terms of what motivates them to exercise and how they exercise. For those who go the gym, choices locally include Clem Jones, Fitness First, Fernwood and Snap Fitness and they are all fairly different to each other. For example, Clem Jones has a strong community feel with it being the base of lots of youth sport activities and a family friendly set of swimming pools. In contrast, Snap is part of a chain and focused on adults and convenience with its 24 hour access and modern equipment.
The newest offering in the area, GO Carindale, looks to be VERY different – it’s modern and high-tech (look at the treadmill video below) and the brand is colourful and entertainment focussed. Classes include ‘hip-hop’ and ‘burlesque’.
