I've been going to AussieFIT in Hilliard for a few months now and have been very happy with the place. There is a TON of cardio equipment that is well kept, a very well stocked free weight area, and a large variety of Nautilus machines. I also appreciate that the women's locker room is reasonably clean (for a fitness center at least). The problem started this morning. When I arrived for my usual 5:30 am workout with my workout buddy, we found that the area that we normally use for mat/ball work had been corded off. There was a sign stating that the area was for use only when accompanied by a personal trainer. If the area is intended for that use, that's fine. But there wasn't a soul in the whole area. The trainers weren't even taking clients back there. We ended up laying mats out literally in the middle of the weight machines as a last resort.If there was a group training session that was taking place in the early morning hours that needed that space, that's fine. But the fact that there was no activity – and there rarely is that early in the morning – in basically the only free floor space in the gym was a slap in the face. AussieFIT is essentially alienating anyone that chooses to not hire a personal trainer. Unfortunately, a trainer is not in everyone's budget. Going to exercise should be a positive, encouraging experience for everyone - not just those that have a trainer. It's unfortunate that what is potentially such a bright, energetic, happy place has decided to make ANYONE feel alienated and uncomfortable. AussieFIT has made it quite clear that unless you're using the machinery or are accompanied by a trainer, any floor work is not welcome. I am now shopping for a new place to go on the two whole days a week that we do weights/floor exercises. And maybe somewhere that will welcome us on our 3 cardio days as well. Quite a shame that a paid membership just isn't enough anymore!

Beyond Limits Training
I been training with Rich for over 3 years...when Rich said he was opening his own gym, I was one of the first customers of Beyond Limits Training (BLT)...and I could not be happier with the results.I was a complete novice in the gym. I am a big aerobics fanatic..7 to 10 classes per week...but I never lifted a weight or used any sort of gym machine. Rich and the staff at Beyond Limits know their stuff and they really cared about teaching me and helping set goals and acheive them. There is an atmosphere of TEAM at BLT that I have not found anywhere else.When I began training with Rich, I was about 200 pounds and as a diebetic, I was on a heavy insulin regimen, had cholesterol out of control and my triglycerides were through the roof. I was on 4 medications to keep these numbers in control....In the past year and a half...I have dropped about 20 to 25 pounds and kept it off...my pant have gone from a 36 inch waist to a 30....I am completely off two medications....my overall cholesterol is about 110....my triglycerides are well within the guidelines...and I am taking about 20% of the insulin I was on...I contribute these results to both the training and the diet Rich has designed for me....In fact, I took the menu that Rich designed for me to several registered dietians, and they were in complete agreeement with both the diet and exercise plan Rich created for me.If you want a whole body transformation...look to Beyond Limits training.

Columbus East AussieFit1. Always too hot ...winter, summer ..always. Its a gym , not a coffee house. Running on a treadmill in a 80 deg. room sucks. Use that A/C! 2. Very crowded after 4 pm, and reviewer ;sunny.davis. is correct , they made the crowding problem worse by roping off a large part of the main room for some gimmicky TRX and KickBox crap. 3. The music they play over the house system is tailored to 14 year old girls, but not to worry.. if you happen to workout after 5:30pm the loud music from the group fitness room along with the new TRX , KickBox music will drown out some of the house system`s Miley Cyrus leaving you with an headache inducing mash-up of three different sound systems blasting you all at once. 4. If your favorite machine breaks down (say, a common cable snaps) , be ready to find something else to use for a month or two. Repairs on machines are very slow. (Currently, a shoulder press machine cable replacement is still down after a month+) 5. The locker room/ restroom REALLY needs a exhaust fan, no explanation needed here. Why am I still a member? ...Friends who I work out with are members, price.

Went there today as part of a group who would be joining. They were not prepared for all of us to join. There was one person who knew what she was doing. Then finally others stepped up to assist us. Very disheartening since my other fitness center is all about the customer. Hope this is not going to be like the predecessor Lifestyles. We will see. I will try it out but did not get the feeling they want older adults there. Right now I will go for the group classes

I was very impresed with Steve's knowlege and profesionalism, a big improvement from the 20 something year old trainers from some of the other gyms I've been. You can tell a big difference experiance makes. I have surpassed my goals and have never looked better.

First class all the way, the one on one training with Steve is always excellent and the results are really showing. I actually look forward now to working with Steve and I always feel great afterwards.

The gym is good for lifters. 24 hour card access and staff that cares about fitness. I ran into some problems with moving too far away and Rich called me on his free time to help me out. Nice guy

The equipment and staff are good. The mens locker room, bathroom and shower have not been kept up for months. I complained at Thanksgiving and it is worse now. I am getting close to moving on.

Just a moment...
