If you fancy spending some time in the gym, and you're in the Sunshine Coast, then this gym may be for you.
The Goodlife Health Clubs have a new gym in Maroochydore. It opened in December 2012 and is a-rocking gym, equipped with the latest and best gym equipment in the market today. It has rows of treadmills, elliptical machines, rowing machines, and bikes. In the weights section, it has plenty of strength training equipment, such as, benches, abdominal machines, chinup or dip stations, lat pull downs, leg machines, crossovers, multi gyms, power racks, power lifting equipment, and crossfit equipment.
The class timetable has body combat, body step, revolution, yoga, body balance, abs blast, body attack, rpm, body pump, rip, boot camp, beach boot camp, dance, boxing, and pilates. Then, of course, there is personal training, designed for a one-on-one consultation to fit your needs and fitness goals.
And if all that working out makes you want to take a bit of a break, then take a seat and have a cuppa in the break-out area. Here you can have a chat with a friend, read the paper, reconnect with your (smart) phone or simply have a much-needed break over a cup of tea or coffee, courtesy of the gym.
And then there are the sauna, steam room, the showers, and male and female changing rooms. There are ways of taking a break, and then there are really good ways of taking a break. Both the sauna and the steam room relieve muscles, soothe aches and pains in the joints and muscles, flush toxins, cleanse the skin, improve circulation and the immune system, burn calories, induce better sleep, help with respiratory problems, and simply feel good. What is more heavenly than a shower after a workout and, especially, after the sauna or steam room Let it wash away all that sweat, and pain and tears, depending on what workout you have just done.
There are also programmable lockers to store your stuff in. For parents with young children, child-minding is available from 8:30am. Don't let me tell you that there is no excuse good enough to get out of looking after your fitness requirements. On the other hand, 2013 has only just begun and wasn't getting fit one of your new year's resolutions?
One really good thing about being a member of the Goodlife Health Clubs is that you can use any of their gyms anywhere in Australia. All you need to do is present your membership card at reception. For some of us, it's comforting to know that that there is going to be a gym we can use whilst away from our home ones.
Maroochydore Goodlife gym is located in the new Maroochydore Homemaker Centre, in Maroochy Boulevard, Maroochydore, Queensland. It occupies a large area on the first floor. It beckons from when you step off the escalators. Do forget I said that when you are feeling sore and achy from your first work-out.
