I have never been to an aussi fit gym, I was an aspen fitness member 2 1/2 years ago. Never got any mail or notice that this new company was taking over their members and will continue to charge them, even if they never come into that gym in 2 1/2 years. Thats messed up.
We apologize that this happened. Please contact us directly at (614) 755-4400 if this issue is still unresolved.
This place is horrible. It is way too crowded, so you cannot get onto a machine. The members are terribly rude and will use two machines at a time, which makes it even worse. They call it "Power Cycling." It really means they are taking up a couple of machines while everyone else has to wait. Some members will literally bully you off a machine ... and management does nothing. Management is worthless. This is the worst gym I have ever been to. Can I give Aussie Fit a score LOWER than one star?
I have been a member of this gym since its inception. (Even before it was California Fitness.) I was treated with such unkindness and sheer disrespect by Todd Cunningham, General Manager of the East Main St. gym. I was provided an unexpired pass by a former manager. Todd intercepted the pass prior to my exit and preceded to belittle me in an open area of the gym saying repetitively "Do you think you should have a free pass and others pay?" I explained I was given the pass, I had not been in the gym in over a year, and that I had once been a paid member for a number of years. He even went so far as to say, "That is why 'he' (the former employee) no longer works here." Never once did he attempt to introduce a provision for my re-entry of membership. Should he had been more professional, it may have been a consideration, given that my health insurance pays a portion toward gym membership! Todd's interaction with me was embarrassing, degrading, and humiliating, to say the least!
I used to love this gym...I've been working out there for 7 years. Mike W. is correct. It is now an absolute NIGHTMARE. No warning from ownership. Impossibly crowded at "rush hour". It stinks. It's horrible now. Filled with inconsiderate new members with no concern for others!

1. 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.
Hi there, Thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback and also responded to your Yelp review.
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!
Sunny, Thank you again for the review. We have responded to yours on Yelp as well but we want you to know that we are taking this seriously. Thanks.
Don't fast to sign up / join the membership when you are not sure you want to belong here! They will lure you in with 30 day money back guarantee. I asked for my refund within 30-day and getting the run around from staff, general manager and even corporate office . Can't believe a company would rather run down their clause, terms, and company policy and arguing with customer over $14 - $33 charge.
Just like a typical budget-friendly gym, they are so eager to get people to their door and sign up. Should have just purchased the $20 2-week trial as I intended, but the GM lured me of current promo and money back guarantee. This morning, he didn't even have more than 1 minute to speak to me and transferred my call instead.
Hi Cindy, I'm very sorry to hear of your disappointment. Please know we take our reviews very seriously and will work to resolve this for you. Take care.
