In November, Goodlife was offering one month membership for only $19 through Scoopon so I decided to check it out. The limitation was that you could only access one health club and had to activate the voucher without three months.
The activation of membership was not too difficult. Of course, they tried to sign me up to a six month or 12 month membership straight away so I politely refused and told the lady that I would like to try the place out first. During the orientation session which lasted about 15 minutes, they showed me around the various parts of the gym and I realised why they were offering this membership - it's summer!
Good things about the gym was the availability of a pool which didn't seem to be overly utilised. I could access the classes which run every day, with limited classes during public holidays. The facilities were good but not as good as Anytime Fitness, which included Foxtel access for their cross trainers. I am sure Goodlife health clubs would vary by location.
I found out later that they were also doing a promotion where members were able to sign up their friends for a month long trial for free, which made me realise that I paid for something that could have been free. I guess that cannot be helped.
The main thing when it comes to these group buy vouchers is whether or not you get what you pay for and for that, the Goodlife voucher turned out to be a worthwhile expenditure. No tricks were played by the retailer and the coupon was happily received and at the end of the day, that's all we are really asking for.
