Whitlam's New Health Club
As we get older it is becoming increasingly apparent through sustantiated research that we need to keep mobile to ensure a great quality of life. As such, we've created a heavily discounted, full access membership for all of our members who are aged 50 years and over - and as with all of our memberships, there's no lock-in contract.
Your Senior's Membership includes the following:
Free Exercise Guidance
Our qualified trainers are here to help. Let us prescribe you an individualised exercise program to help you get on track to achieving your goals. We'll help you perfect your technique and learn how to get the most out of every single workout! Did we mention this is FREE as part of your membership?
We run specialised seniors group exercise classes each week, known at Gold Total. They are a full body workout focussing on strength, fitness, balance and coordination to ensure daily activities remain achieveable as each birthday passes.
Each week you'll also find in excess of 40 group exercise classes timetabled each week. Classes include LesMills favourites, such as BodyPump and BodyBalance, aquatic classes like AquaZumba and AquaAerobics, as well as freestyles classes and Fitness On Demand. We can help you slect classes suitable to your needs.
Fitness On Demand
Fitness On Demand features virtual classes shown on a big screen, allowing you to select a class and participate at any time when there is no live class running.
MYZONE at Whitlam
We are also a MYZONE equipped Health Club, which means that with our MYZONE (TM) heart rate montiors (on sale in club now) you can track exactly how hard you are training and watch your live heart rate on our TV's, located in both of our group exercise studios, on our gym floor and in Coaching Zone. It also allows your trainers and exercise advisors the ability to see exactly how you are tracking to ensure that you are well on your way to achieving your goals.
