    How much is the fortnight membership fee? Is it depend on the the gym you signup? or is it same price in every gym?

    •  

      Dependent on gym.

    • +1 vote

      Surely they're all the same price? Would be a bit unfair if some were cheaper and let you visit all the others anyway

      •  

        you can visit the others, but you have to visit more the one your paying for or in the next month or two you might get transferred to the one you visit most

        Mine upped my monthly fee from $45 to 65 just because they Updated the gym and changed owners…

        Scum.

          Same here, had a foundation membership guaranteeing no fee increases but apparently it was for the franchise ownership lifetime rather than mine. AF tried to up my monthly membership to more than that of a new member. Scum x 2

      Correct, it varies slightly but is generally around $19.95/week on a 12 month contract, or $17.95/week on an 18 month contract. Yeah, there’s cheaper gyms around, but AF are generally very well equipped with excellent gear (much better than other franchises like Snap and Jetta).

        Yes I tried to register online,, south melbourne is $60 per month and Balwyn is $55 a month.. Wonder if they will post my FOB key…

    •  

      I pay $52/m, but the one a couple km down the road wouldn't budget on $62/m. Definitely worth asking around if you have a couple nearby.

  •  

    Might be an idea to include the monthly rate if you know it. Even an example rate would help.

    Clubs rarely list rates onsite anymore and market hard when you contact them direct.

    Worth mentioning that unlike Snap or Jetts, you are locked into a 12 or 18 month contract. In my experience, their salespeople avoid mentioning that until the very end of their pitch. And for me it was a deal breaker. Others may not mind.

    Also, FYI you can generally avoid paying the joining fee at any gym chain. What I did last time I signed up was say "Look I know the joining fee is for suckers" and the gym manager said "Yeah fair enough" and I didn't pay it.

    WWIW - i signed my partner up to a new anytime fitness that was newly built, we ended up paying 0 joining fee and she currently pays 52 a month. She's also a member of AIA's Vitality thing so we also get refunded 400 bucks a year if we go consistently. The price of these gyms vary gym to gym, but if you go 2/3 more at a certain gym for that month, they 'move' you to that gym you've been going to more.

    I used to pay 42 dollars a month but then i kept going to the gym near my office (collins square) and the price jumped up to 65 a month! needless to say i went back to my old gym pretty quick..

    For those with the Entertainment Book, there is usually a 25% off voucher if you buy a year in full. Most AF gyms will offer a discounted price for buying a year in full as well.

    3.1 If you change your mind after joining, you have 7 days to cool off or cancel your Membership starting on the Start Date . To be effective, you must let us know in writing at any time during this 7 day cooling off period. Your written cancellation can be given to us personally, by post or by e mail.

    3.2 If you cancel your Membership under clause 3.1, we will charge you the Fob Key Fee and fees for any services or products already supplied but the Joining Fee and Membership Fees will be refunded

    Seriously, what I am going to do with the FOB key,, they not going to refund that

      Uhh, you might be waiting a while friend.

        My last jetts offered that (but did have an overpriced card fee - I can’t imagine the actual cost of the card and activation is more than $10), but I’ve moved and the local one doesn’t. Not like I went a lot, I’m not exactly stressing about not giving a gym $40 a month it may as well stay in my pocket

    The fact that you have to pay for a Joining fee and access card fee is idiotic, its only a way for them to make extra cash. In Brazil (3rd world country) I used fingerprint authentication to access the gym. This is just nonsense at its best.

    •  

      Exactly. Particularly when you’re locked into a 12 month contract. This is why I negged this deal.

    So they’re waiving the BS fee they charge to lock you in to a 12 month contract? And the membership itself still costs the same right?

    Sorry, this is not a deal at all.

    • +2 votes

      Agree. Plus the many exceptions listed above - this just doesn't meet the threshold of a deal. If I had to pick one issue (because through both the comments and conditions there are a lot), it's that it still costs you a $69.95 card access fee. :-(

      •  

        Hahaha wow are you serious?! That makes this ‘deal’ even more of a joke.

      For those of us not in the loop, what is AIA Vitality?

      • +1 vote

        rewards program available with some health insurance or life insurance policies, rewarding you with cashback or vouchers for staying active eg going to gym, 12,500 steps per day. it sounds too good to be true, and it is. it is brilliant.

        •  

          Do you know if there's a cost-effective way to join AIA Vitality in QLD (for the AF cashback)? Last time I looked into it, I don't think there was.

          •  

            @Duckman: RACQ income protection. costs me $17/mth and I get $20/mth in vouchers. Plus everything else on top (about $650 in gift cards, $400 back from gym, some flight cashback)

        •  

          Do you have to have private health insurance with AIA?

          edit: answering my own question…the below is from the AIA Vitality signup page:

          How to Join
          AIA Vitality is available with eligible health and life insurance policies through AIA Australia or one of our insurance partners.

          You're able to access AIA Vitality through:

          1) Selected distribution partners and insurance products including myOwn, RACQ Health Insurance, GMHBA and MaxLife.

          2) Your financial adviser.

    So the only benefit of this deal is they wave the joining fee? (something that they tend to waive commonly according to others anecdotes)

    kinda lame considering you're still paying for the access card..

    joining fee
    account opening fee

      "we charge you for the service and for every single expense you generate to our business"

      direct debit fee.
      There's a gym near me that costs $9.99 a week. Plus $3 direct debit fee, which they don't tell you about until the very last moment. And there are no other payment options.

    for those who are not happy to commit to gyms for so long, check Gumtree and/or Marketplace for membership transfer. Lot's of people want to move out of their contracts by transferring it to someone else, and you might be able to find memberships with a much shorter commitment period.

    Don't do it, they're a bunch of scammers.

    And goodluck if you want to try and leave lol.

    There is also a $50 referral credit maybe stop someone on the way in and offer to go halves.

    Man they locked me into that 12 month contract and after the 12 month contract expired it took so long to leave. They kept neglecting my cancellation. The worse thing is they make you call this management services to cancel and refuse to let you cancel from the franchise you signed up at.

  •  

    Op:

    Maximum 12 months.

    T&C:
    minimum period of 12 months.

    I signed up when a new Anytime Fitnesses was opened in my area. They waived off joining fee but charged me $69 for the key. Couldn’t collect the key in the first couple of weeks they opened as I moved to Sydney from Melbourne. Then a month later I saw Anytime fitness started to Direct Debit my bank account based on card details I used to purchase key. I challenged them and asked to cancel the direct debit, their answer was “ you entered a contract for 12 months “ so pay the exit fee plus one month of charge for using the gym( I still didn’t collect the gym keys). Fought with them for close to 3 months, finally they cancelled my membership and sent me a debt collection notice.

    Lesson learned was you need motivation to stay fit and not gym membership. Six months ago moved back to Melbourne and started jumping rope lost close to 12 kgs now.
