Purchasing the land and having it rezoned to build a one room gym took a bit of time but finally won approval. Over the years changes have taken place with other rooms added to house the MedX equipment and a sprung gym floor designed for less impact while working out. The light, bright and air conditioned space is a welcoming atmosphere to train in.
Unfortunately a total overhaul was needed after the flood of 2011 submerged it to the rafters. With the help of dedicated gym staff and concerned members they managed to move out, clean up and save the non-electrical equipment. The mud and the pictures to prove it were horrendous but this crew used its stamina to over-come and carry on. Almost 4 months later they were back at it helping us to keep in shape.
The staff which includes Michael's offspring, Kelly and Anthony, will teach you the machines, help you train and make sure you work to the best of your ability.
First you will be shown the elliptical, rowing machines, tread mills and stationary bikes. Next you enter the MedX room learning the proper ways to engage these machines which are time saving and invaluable in the fight against osteoporosis amongst other things.
The MedX machines work the opposing muscle groups of your arms, legs, front and back giving you a well-rounded work out. If you are a golfer, runner, rugby player or dancer this equipment helps strengthen where you need it. If you are a new mom, executive assistant or tradie there is no shortage of what you can do. From teen to senior there is a place here for you.
You can tailor a workout to address your own personal needs. You can combine the machines with the classes changing what you do from day to day. You can even hire one of the personal trainers to help you on your quest.
The classes are popular and varied: Pilates, BodyPump, BodyAttack, BodyStep and more. Zumba has been a big hit and Yoga and BodyBalance are a good way to complete your workout. The classes are done on the sprung floor and there is a good range of times throughout the week. You can go online at www.workout.net.au to get a complete list of classes and times.
