Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find the right personal trainer for me?
All the trainers listed on our site are categorised based on areas they specialise in. To find a trainer that suits your needs, simply go to the personal-trainer search and pick one or more specialisation areas and type in your postcode or suburb. We have some of the best trainers in Melbourne, ranging from those specialising in training people with diabetes, to the elderly, to sports-specific and competitive bodybuilding. You can see detailed profiles of all the trainers in your area that match your needs. You may then book a training session with them either via our online booking system or by giving them a call!

How do I find the right gym for me?
All the gyms listed on our site are categorised based on services they offer and the facilities they have. If you are looking for a gym with particular facilities, such as a swim-school or child-care, simply go to the gyms and fitness centres search and click on the 'Search by Services' tab. You then pick which facilities you are after, type in your postcode and suburb and detailed profiles of all the gyms closest to you will show up. You can then browse and read more about each, including membership details, peak times and see a visual catalogue of each gym.

What is the difference between a Personal Training Studio and a Gym?
Personal Training Studios or Boutique Gyms often occupy smaller premises, offering a private to semi-private setting in a non-intimidating training environment. They usually offer limited memberships to preserve personal attention and membership usually incorporates personal training sessions and monitored workouts.

Gyms and Health Clubs are often larger premises, offering their members a wide variety of facilities from gym equipment, swimming pools, sporting facilities, group classes and much more. Most centres also offer casual access and non-supervised training.

I am in the fitness industry and would like to list my business on your site. How do I go about this?
Listing is simple. Just fill in the contact form and we will get in touch with you to discuss your needs.

How do businesses update their details when they need to?
Each business listed has access to their own online account management section 24hrs a day. You can update every aspect of your listing at your own leisure, using our simple point and click interface (no experience is necessary - anyone can use it, and they do!). From uploading new photos, to adding new classes, trainers or new facilities & services. You are in full control, 24hrs a day!

All the listings have a lot of high quality photos, but I don't have any. Do you provide a photography service?
Yes. Most of the businesses listed with us have taken advantage of our professional photography service. We specialise in fitness photography of gyms/fitness centres and personal trainers. Businesses who list with us have access to a discounted photography rate - a service which we are proud to offer as part of all our listings. You are also given access to high quality versions of all photos and are free to use them in any promotional material you produce online and offline (there are no further licence fees!).
