There are temporary lockers available to hire located near the entrance to the gym. These lockers take a $2 coin per use. There are also permanent lockers located in both the male and female changing rooms which are $200 for the year and go on sale at the beginning of each year. The other option is to leave your bag in the cubbyholes provided in the Cardio or Weights Gym.
Will there be Trainers in the gym if I need any help?
Yes! There is always a qualified exercise professional with either an Exercise Physiology degree or Certificate III in Fitness (minimum) in the gym to assist you.
Do I get a gym induction/program with my Membership?
Yes, once you purchase a Membership one of our trained staff will discuss your goals with you, put together a personalised program and show you how to use the equipment correctly & safely. They will also take the time to give you a tour of the gym.
What is the difference between a fitness consultation and assessment?
A fitness consultation is when a qualified exercise professional with either an Exercise Physiology degree or Certificate III and IV in Fitness designs a program for you. They will explain and demonstrate how to use the equipment correctly and safely. A fitness consultation is complementary when a UQ Sport Gold Membership or Gym access cardio Membership is purchased. A fitness assessment examine your fitness level and allows you to test specific areas, such as your body mass index. There is an additional cost for fitness assessments.
How do I get to the UQ Sport Fitness Centre?
Where can I park?
How do I book a Group Fitness class?
There’s no need to book in advance for any of our Group Fitness classes. Simply swipe your card at the check-in machine to get a ticket and present this to the instructor at the beginning of the class.
Is there a lockout time if I’m late for a Group Fitness class?
After the class has started, you may not be allowed to enter. Always aim to be 10 minutes early to allow for any extra warm-ups needed.
How do I book Squash, Badminton or Indoor Soccer?
If I have a Membership, do I need to book to play Badminton or use the Martial Arts gym even if it’s not in use?
Yes. All bookable facilities within UQ Sport incur an additional cost, even if you have a current Membership.
How far in advance do I need to book Squash?
It really depends when you would like to play. During peak times (after 5pm) you may need to book two to three weeks in advance. During off-peak times (before 5pm) you may find a court available for the same day. However, we recommend that you book a court to avoid disappointment.
