Snap Fitness is a global fitness brand that was founded in North America back in 2003. There are currently more than 200 Snap Fitness gyms located across Australia and more than 2,000 around the world. As a member, you’re able to access the entire network of gyms including those located overseas.

Snap Fitness provides smaller, affordable gyms with a basic range of good quality equipment that you can access 24/7. Their main point of difference from other similar gyms like Anytime Fitness, Jetts, Plus Fitness, and Zap Fitness is their focus on heart rate training. They believe that using their MyZone powered wearable heart rate monitors, which are an additional cost, makes your training more effective and helps you get fitter faster.

If you have basic training needs and want to focus on your cardio fitness, then Snap Fitness could be a good option. The ability to train at any time of the day or night and to do it at any of their locations around the world will appeal to people who want flexibility in their gym membership. If you’re looking for access to more specialised training equipment or a variety of group training classes, then you’d be better off looking at other options. You can find other gyms near you by visiting our search page and entering your address. You can even filter by the types of facilities and services you want in your new gym.

Snap Fitness operates under a franchise model which means each location is individually owned. Whilst many things are common across all clubs, you will find some small differences including membership fees. Owners can also heavily influence the atmosphere and general environment at each location. It’s therefore important to realise that a good or bad experience at one location isn’t always representative of all Snap Fitness clubs.

Facilities and Services

All Snap Fitness locations provide a variety of equipment to suit most basic training styles and needs. Cardio zones have a mix of equipment like cross-trainers, bikes, rowers, steppers and treadmills. There are free-weights with dumbbells, barbells and various benches if you’re looking to do strength training. You’ll also find a variety of pin-loaded weight machines that are great for beginner to intermediate level weight training. Open areas for stretching and bodyweight exercises are also available. Snap Fitness clubs also provide basic functional training equipment.

There are some limited options for group training classes at some Snap Fitness locations. Check your local club to see if they provide any classes and what the cost is. If group training classes are an important part of your training plan, then you’ll find more options at the bigger, more expensive health clubs like Fitness FirstFernwoodGenesisGoodlife or Virgin Active.

For an additional cost on top of your membership, you can access personal training services. Each Snap Fitness club have their own Personal Trainers (PT) operating out of the facility and each PT can specialise in different areas. If using a PT is going to be a core part of your training, it’s best to do some research to see if the PT’s operating out of your preferred club meet your specific requirements. If you’re unsure, consider a short term contract or free trial period while you take an initial session with your chosen PT. Once you’re comfortable you’ve found the right one, then you can lock yourself into a longer contract at cheaper weekly rates.

Snap Fitness gyms provide water fountains, sanitising wipes and toilets. You’ll also find change rooms and private shower facilities at most locations which make it easy to train either before work, after work or during a lunch break.

Opening Hours

Snap Fitness is open for you to train 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, you will need to check with your local club if you require support as the staffed hours for each club can be different and in many cases, quite limited. You will often see personal trainers around the gym with their clients, even outside of staffed hours. If you have an urgent question when there are no staff present, you can always ask them. Access to the gym outside of staffed hours is via a security tag or card and there are security cameras and emergency numbers to call in case of an emergency.

Age Restrictions

Snap Fitness officially accepts members from 14 years of age but each location has the discretion to increase the minimum age if they choose. All members under the age of 18 must have the signature of their parent or guardian and can only access the club during staffed hours. Younger members can find this a challenge as Snap Fitness staffed hours are quite restricted compared to some other gyms. You will often find limited hours on Friday nights and on weekends. You will probably find less restrictive options (with a lower joining age and increased access) at other gyms like Jetts. For a more comprehensive list of age restrictions for the major gym brands in Australia, read our article on the minimum age to join a gym.

Snap Fitness Pricing

Snap Fitness provides a number of affordable membership options. There is a month-by-month membership that gives you flexibility by not locking you into a long-term contract. This is a great option if you’re trialling the gym to see if it’s the right one for you. There are also 3, 6 and 12-month contract options with the longer contracts being the most affordable on a per week basis. Membership at Snap Fitness starts from as low as $12.95 per week but can vary by club and membership type.

When you join Snap Fitness, you will usually be required to pay a joining fee and a Global Access Card fee. Joining fees can vary by location so remember to check with your local club before making your decision. Also, look out for special offers as joining fees can often be waived or reduced. You can also find all the latest deals on our Latest Offers page.

3-7 day free trials are available and vary by location.

Great gym, Atmosphere and staff!

Love this place after signing up a year or so ago. If you're looking for a gym with the latest strength equipment, heaps of squat rack, deadlift platforms and plate loaded machines this is it! They are forever updating and buying new accessories including mag grips, fat grips and even specialised barbells! This is a hidden gem! Who would have thought a gym like this would be in Camberwell! Amazed! Keep up the great work guys, I'm a member for life.

Left previous gym due to lack of atmosphere, joined here after being greeted by a friendly team member when enquiring- Demi. Shame as she seems to be the only one. Trainers look straight through you as usual. Ignorance is contagious and the gym sadly reflects this generally. Will quietly see out my contract then keep looking for something more welcoming. *Will update my review if this improves.

Worst gym

I have been a member for 7 months. It’s impossible to get anyone to ring you back or email you. They just don’t give a dam. My credit card was scammed so I had to wait to get anew one so wanted to pay directly from my bank. I rang and left messages over days times during the working hours they set. I then emailed and they finally got back to me. Prior to this I have tried ringing them having arrived out of hours when my swipe was not working and they NEVER pick up the mobile so Again i missed days at the gym even when you ring within their set hours. No more excuses surely it’s easy to pick up a phone! When I first joined I noticed how dirty the equipment was on 2 machines on the 1st floor. I’m talking old greasy dirt. I actually took photos up to the 2nd floor and offered to show them to the manager so he could see The manager at the desk on the 2nd floor said he’d speak to the cleaners. Went the next day still so dirty so I ended cleaning them myself. I mentioned it again to the manager and he said he would tell the cleaner again. Not interested at all.Honestly it was easier for me to do it. I told him to check the cameras but I doubt he did. It’s a shame as I overlooked a lot it’s so convenient as I live 5 min walk away. I understand from the front desk they are having big problems getting staff but this is has been going on for 7months. I was a member at snap fitness in Melbourne Hampton for a year and that gym was so well managed and amazing staff. The owner Matt and his wife were so professional and customer focused and were always making sure machines were cleaned especially through covid. I don’t think it’s right to risk having dirty machines in a gym as it’s not fair on the members. If I hadn’t spent time myself cleaning and scrubbing the area with loads of towel and disinfectant it could have caused serious covid problems.
