Frequently Asked Questions
When does it open?
Early October - as soon as we possibly can! At this stage, we are aiming for a grand opening on Saturday 3rd October!
Are there more classes?
Studio will launch with a similar timetable as well as a few new classes, and over time we will add more classes as we are able to. We are always open to feedback around classes types and times, and will look to improve our offering as we progress.
How do I book?
The booking process will remain exactly the same, via our Member Portal on our website, or better yet through our dedicated Champs Fitness App. We're on the verge of launching a brand new & exciting website to partner the launch of our Studio, so keep an eye out for this!
When can I book!
We're hoping to open bookings from Monday 28th, for classes beginning Monday 5th October. With the return of classes, and limited numbers due to COVID restrictions, we expect demand to be high, so we will add more classes where practicable. Remember, bookings open at 5AM, seven days before the class!!!!
Are there more spots?
There definitely will be! Whilst we may not increase class sizes straightaway, we have some more Spin bikes on order to add some more spots to our Pedal classes, as well as heaps more space for our regular HIIT style classes, Yoga etc. Initially, we will increase numbers gradually to ensure we can maintain physical distancing and keep everyone safe with the current Level 2 restrictions.
Will the format of the classes change?
We are working on formats and class structures at the moment. Some of the class timings may change slightly to allow for more cleaning time between classes, as well as preventing a bottleneck of participants. We will be releasing more information about classes and the timetable very soon!
Is there more equipment?
Yes! We have some more spin bikes on their way due to land late next month and a whole lot of new strength and cardio equipment! As always we will continue to add new gear as we need to.
Will it cost more?
We have made the decision to make no changes to your membership during the month of October. As a loyal and valued member of Champs Fitness, we want you to make the most of the Gym and the Studio for as long as possible, your current memberships will give you full gym and class access at no additional cost for October. Prices will change from 1st November and we will work with members during October to get them onto the best value membership that suits their needs.
Will my membership change?
This one depends on how you utilise Champs Fitness. If you only use the Gym and don't attend our group fitness classes - you don't need to do a thing!
Members that only participate in our group fitness classes can change to a Studio only membership at no extra cost. You will need to let us know that you wish to do this! The process is simple, and it will cost you nothing!
However, people that want both will need to transfer to our new Elite membership and there will be a small additional cost. Make sure you talk to us about your membership during your next visit and we will assist you in making the right choice to suit your needs!
How come it costs more?
Membership prices have been largely unchanged for the last 5 years. While we wish we could continue to provide free classes to all our members, the new facilities represent a significant cost to us and we need to cover that. In return, we will offer more classes, bigger & better than before in a brand new studio!
Of course we are only increasing membership fees for those members that choose to take advantage of both the Studio and the Gym!
How do I change my membership?
If you would like to change to one of our Studio only memberships, or upgrade to our new Elite membership, you can talk to us during your next visit. Remember, your membership doesn't need to change during October, you still have access to both the Studio and Gym at no additional cost, however if you do wish commit to the change during October, you will still not pay any extra for the month and will also receive an early bird discount on any additional costs of your ongoing membership to thank you for your support!
Can I train down in the Studio?
The Studio will be a class based exercise facility only, meaning to train down there, you will need to participate in our group fitness classes - it will not be open as a training space when it is not in use. We are working through using the Studio as a specialised personal training facility also!
