"I have never been to a gym where I feel so welcome and cared for. The trainers are beyond dedicated and the offer of a free PT a month is outstanding. The child play area is such an excellent resource. Highly recommend for mums who want to exercise but can't afford the crazy costs of child care."

"Ive been to a few gyms and i have loved this one the most! Its not a gym where you will see gym junkies walking around practically naked, you see the every day woman. The staff are friendly and supportive and you can see its a little community in there. I love that there is a play area for your kids which helps me, instead of missing out on time with my husband at night I can go during the day!!"
