How To Live Off Free Gym Trials: Auckland Edition

78 days of free fitness, sounds like a no brainer to me.

How To Live Off Free Gym Trials: Auckland Edition

Fitness is something we ALL struggle with. Why?

  1. How do we find the time?
  2. How do we find the money to afford it?

But seeing as we're heading into Spring, it's time to think about how to 'glow up' for Summer. To help with point number 2, I have compiled the Top 10 Free Fitness Trials in Auckland.

NOTE: I have only included fitness trials that are 5 days and above because anything less is more effort than worth. Nobody has time to sign up, fill out all your details for one fitness class.

BUT there are many free 1-3 day trials e.g. the Jetts 3 day trial. You can easily explore these online if you're an ultimate cheapie (creds to you if you are).


1: Anytime Fitness - 7 Day Free Trial

Anytime Fitness is the ONLY big gym franchise that offers anything above a 3 day free trial. With 24 hour access and 20 locations in Auckland it combines the best of both worlds, time and location convenience.

One of my personal favourites, Classpass is a web / app based platform that allows you to book up to 12 fitness classes across Auckland or overseas.

5: F45 - 7 Day Free Trial

F45, a gym that was a kick in the butt for how unfit I was. It's a growing gym with multiple locations in Auckland. Their fitness classes are notoriously hard, but complimented with a great community it's a good sweaty time.

Location:

Condition:

  • All F45's are individually owned, meaning not all of them offer 7 day free trials (although most do). Please double check their free trial after you've found the studio closest to you.
