So you’ve been searching around for a new Gym in Brisbane, that is not overcrowded, just so you can workout in your own space without bumping into other sweaty people beside you. Chances are, you wont be having much luck with the big chain overcrowded gyms. There still is one local independent Gym in Brisbane that is the exception...
At Helfi Addiction 247 Fitness Gym in Brisbane (Woolloongabba), we ensure our members avoid the crowds while working out. We have been established for over 10 years, and have a really solid foundation of loyal members that fit in comfortably in our huge 500+ square metre floor space. Quite simply, we made a management decision from day one that we will never increase our member base just for the sake of cramming in as many bodies as we can - we are about people and community where everyone becomes a friend, not a number.
Even before COVID-19 came around, we were well known for attracting family friendly people into our gym in Brisbane without the large crowd. Given the size of our floor space, we are fortunate enough to host many workout stations and a large variety of equipment - all 1.5m apart. What we have done successfully over the last 10 years is that we simply don't allow more people than workout spaces into our gym in Brisbane at anyone time.
Sadly, the feedback we get from our members who have been to other nearby gyms in Brisbane previously, is that these other gyms may look the part from outside, but they simply do not have a great vibe when you walk in. Its not just the intimidating crammed up equipment or the shady locker rooms that make them feel uncomfortable; its also the actual way their gym management allow too many people in at one time that makes their workout space uncomfortable, overcrowded and not appealing. When the issue of wanting to avoid the crowds comes up as a concern, there’s one thing these gym membership salespeople will never admit to - their gym is a practical mosh pit most hours of the day; because all they want to do is sell sell sell more memberships and push their membership base as high as possible.
The reality for many of these chain style gyms in Brisbane, is that instead of breezing from one piece of equipment to the next, you’ll silently line up behind each piece of equipment and jump on it before others can stake their claim. Sadly, this is the state of many chain franchise gyms in Brisbane around your local area. Rather than them admitting that you do have an alternative option such as a local independent gym like Helfi without the crowd, they push the focus on trying to make you get used to being forced to endure the crowds, by giving you a few work around suggestions. Here are the common work around tricks our members have shared with us, based on what their previous gym told them as a way to stop them from cancelling their membership with them due to their concerns:
At Helfi, before any of our members join, we always encourage them to check out our client reviews. We have posted them here for your convenience. You will notice that we never have any mention of crowds and members complaining of having to share equipment with long wait times. Now that's a pretty good sign for an independent local gym in Brisbane that has been around for over 10 years.
Lastly when you visit our gym for a tour, we are more that happy for you to make the visit during peak hours, or at a time that you would potentially workout, so you can get a better sense of vibe. We like to be transparent and that's because we have nothing to hide - we are about Real People with Rea, Stories.
P.S. Here's one last tip on how to avoid an overcrowded gym in Brisbane - always try to avoid gyms which hold constant promotions and plenty of free passes to entice new members. This typically means they have limited regard to existing members by liberally allowing non committed members unrestricted access so their gym won’t ever really empty out while there’s an influx of new people every day. This is not the Helfi Way!
