Fit n Fast membership T&Cs
Fit n Fast allows members from 14 years of age to sign up to a membership with a parent signature for all under the age of 18.
Qmax memberships allow bringing a friend for free to your home club only to use the facilities but not Qmax classes. There are some blackout hours which you will need to contact your local Fit n Fast gym to confirm the times. Fit n Fast also offers online sales on its website.
Many of the Fit n Fast fitness clubs have 24/7 access. Other Fit n Fast gyms are able to be accessed with the Qmax and Blue membership.
Contract terms are available in 24, 12 or 6 month packages depending on the membership type and the specific Fit n Fast club. If you’re unsure if you can commit to Fit n Fast, it offers a 3 day trial pass as well as a non-commitment membership that allows you to trial the gym before you decide to make a longer commitment. When going away or unwell, you’re able to put the membership on hold for 1-6 fortnights, but a fee applies.
Fit n Fast allows a 30 day Money Back policy if you would like to cancel the membership within the first 30 days. This does not include the access card fee and you must have attended the club at least 2 times each week within that period. Fit n Fast requires a 2 week written notice to cancel without a fee for ‘Fast Memberships’ but ‘Fit memberships’ do attract cancellation fees. You will need to contact your local Fit n Fast gym directly to discuss the details.
What group classes does Fit n Fast offer?
Fit n Fast has developed ‘Quickie’ group fitness classes for its clubs, which are composed of 30 minute workout sessions to make it more flexible for those who are unable to spend more time at the gym.

Should I choose Fit n Fast gyms?
When finding the right gym for you, it’s important to consider all your options. You may like to visit a local Fit n Fast gym and use its 3 day trial pass to get a sense of what the social atmosphere of the club is like and if it’s what you’re looking for. It is also a good idea to consider if Fit n Fast has the facilities and group classes you are after and if the membership options would suit your lifestyle. Along with this, it would be wise to have a read of online reviews and ratings – such as ours – to gain an insight on how Aussies compare the number of gyms around the country. Fit n Fast seems to cater towards consumers who want a relatively simple and flexible gym membership. If that sounds like you, the chain is worth a look.
