The changes that can occur are:
  • Adding a concession card to reduce their fortnightly fees- if a valid concession card is present.
  • Changing from an aquatic membership to an all inclusive (adding the gym/gf classes)
  • Changing from a flexi to a lifestyle - flexi is month to month, lifestyle is a 6 month minimum term at a cheaper rate per fortnight. 

  1. Patrons asks new price details - Once MS process the change, MS contact the patron and run through new membership details.
  2. Changing to full access - Patrons can access the gym once online form is submitted, leave notes in PG advising COM form has been submitted with details eg, COM submitted Flexi Aquatic to Flexi Active.
  3. Why can't we give out prices - We are not Membership consultants, we may give out incorrect information or skip valuable details.
