    fitness first queens road central

    Anyone a member of this gym, considering joining but wouldn't mind hearing some comments from members/former members of this place.

    Long wait time for machines during peak hours?
    better/cheaper gyms near by?
    Is paying $540 a month for this place reasonable?
    what are their classes like, are they always at capacity?
    Also when they say there is a special on which expires that day, are they serious or are they open to negotiation if I decide to join a week later?

    Cheers

    Hi there! The gym is not too bad, but it's because I live nearby (I don't shower in the gym) and go during off-peak hours. The machines are pretty all right - lots of treadmills and other machines. Have never been for a class, but the morning classes seem pretty empty (judging from the number of people filing out from the studios). IMOH Fitness First is much better than California Fitness nearby in terms of members. FF has more working adults so the people who work out there are more serious about working out, versus CF which seems to have much younger people who are there more as a social club. This is just strictly my opinion!

    Try to ask for other packages they might have in FF. I'm paying HK$450 a month for passport - signed up with this package they had last year. They're open to negotiations.. so just keep pushing for what you want!

    knock 50-100 off and it's fine

    never queued for a machine, showers are fine.

    no better or cheaper ones nearby

    evening classes busier, but never too busy

    balls to the 'specials'. there'll always be a 'special'
