Group fitness classes

The Gym@CDU offers a variety of 30 group fitness classes per week, each class runs for 45 min if not highlighted otherwise.

We can accommodate for up to 35 participants per class, no bookings required.

We have no pre-designed classes. Our qualified fitness instructors create their own routines which alows them to tailor the exercises to the fitness levels and the preferences of the participants. Beginners can join any of our classes at any time.

As a rule we value correct movement and our members' safety when exercising above rapid progress; we believe in quality over quantity.

The classes in green fields are high impact classes - expect to be motivated and moved to your full capacity!
The classes in blue fields are low impact classes - expect them to be slower and more gentle on your joints.
The classes in white fields are run by external providers, times can vary and fees are not included in gym memberships.

Please note: there are no group fitness classes on public holidays. ‘Group fitness only’ members may use the gym on pubic holidays.
